Dealer warranty

I never buy warranties for cars but with all the electronics I thought it might be a smart move with the GC. Does it matter if I call Chrysler or walk into a dealership? I alway feel like I'm getting ripped off when I walk in. I sort of don't trust dealerships. Thanks.

Re: Dealer warranty

As long as you are buying the Mopar MaxCare Extended Service Contract (they are not "warranties"), you can buy it from any authorized FCA dealer, local or online. Many folks buy online for significant savings, including myself. There are many, many threads about this here in the forum...

I purchased from Ziegler online.

Do NOT buy a third party contract...stick with the Mopar contract.

Re: Dealer warranty

I took Ziegler's quote into my dealer and they matched it. They'd rather make a little money instead of none.

Re: Dealer warranty



I want to call them to speak to someone but I guess they all cover the same thing? I used the quote calculator but it doesn't go into detail about coverage. I'm still digging through the site on my phone.

They sell the Chrysler plan, so you can find all the info through Jeep.com if you can't find it on Zeigler's site.

Re: Dealer warranty

If I already have 31,000 miles and I get a 60k plan is that 60k on top of my current 31,000 or do they prorate the price? Sorry for all questions but I never in my life bought a car Ext warranty.

Re: Dealer warranty

I read :

As vehicle owner, you should also be aware that FCA US may deny your warranty coverage if your vehicle or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.

So if I don't do all the small maintenance the manufacturer recommends they can deny coverage on stuff? Do they abuse this?
