Thanks.
Thanks Paullee01 for the link. The other one I gave is actually Northampton CJDR in Mass. Ziegler is usually $100 or so less than them.

Good lucj

Paulee, the guy that does the warranty stuff for Ziegler is Bob Cline. If you ask him nice he might just give you a code for an extra discount.

Re: Lifetime extended warranties, do they make sense?

What a wasted spot for a good post.

I am seriously considering pulling the trigger before I reach 12K. Too many miles will be going on the Jeep each year and I wouldnt mind having the peace of mind.

Re: Lifetime extended warranties, do they make sense?

I am only at 40,000 miles and I have already extracted $1300 of the $1800 I invested in this warranty (hydraulic motor mount failure and a complete new steering rack). I wouldn't be surprised if I end up costing them twice what I gave them for it before its over. Waste of money? More like some of the best money I have spent.


YMMV,
NB

Thanks for the heads up! Think I am going to purchase the warranty with in a week or two. 6 months ago if I recall they were about $200.00 cheaper.

Considering this forum, and considering what most of the traffic is like here, I'd think that if there were issues with this package, this specific thread would be neck deep in anger and rage about this plan.

And yet, it all seems mostly quiet. Mostly positive.

It's not like this is a new plan. Seems to me this has been around for some time, and that folks would have had opportunity to use it, and be either pleased or disappointed by it.

This availability of this plan was definitely a factor if me getting the truck in the first place. Beyond the teething issues many early '14 adopters have encountered, Jeep is not a standout in the overall reliability market. It's not terrible, but it's not a standout, and it's public perception (justified or not) is likely worse than reality.

Yet, here's a plan designed to cover pretty much everything but tires, brakes, and windshield wipers - forever. Until the repair is greater than the value of the car.

This is a vehicle with a boat load of tech. Which means a boat load of wires, and sensors, and switches, etc. that may go bad. It's one thing to diagnose and repair a leaky seal. It's another to hunt down a frayed wire or intermittent short in a switch, especially when there's however many miles of wires strung throughout.

So, now, I have a vehicle where the little pesky nitty things that just fail as time goes on, and folks ignore, can be fixed.

Left rear power window that you almost never use stuck? Fix it. kthx.

Power lock solenoid getting all buzzy? Fix it. kthx.

Seat heater only working on half the seat after 8 years? Fix it. kthx.

Transmission sieze and spit out pieces at 200K miles? Fix it. kthx. (This may well send it over the top...)

I'll know when they drag the rusting hulk of my truck away in 10-15 years whether this was a bad bet or not. I have faith in modern engineering and manufacturing of modern cars that this car will last a long time. Cars today are simply amazing.

But I have experience enough that after that long, Stuff Happens, and I think I'll be a net winner in the end.

This contract is a race between depreciation and inflation. But it was a modest roll in to my payment, and offers a lot of piece of mind that I don't have to keep my eye on the odometer or the calendar.

And all told, haven't heard anything specifically bad about it yet.

The Maximum Care Life Time $100 is the one I am referring to. It was $2195 six months ago now it's 2315.00. Went up $125.00. I guess that's not to bad but I am not going to wait any longer just going to make purchase.

Ya still a good deal. I meant Chryslr/Mopar didn't raise dealer cost on Max Care Life $100, its still $1985.
