I usually keep a car roughly 10 years so I feel like the unlimited maxcare is a good for me. Agree with you lots of stuff to break especially in the higher trim levels. Just my opinion.
My Jeep has 35600+ miles on it so the 3/36 warranty is almost gone.

Well I say I'll probably keep it for 5-6 years but I may keep it longer if it still does everything I need it to do for me. I wasn't a fan of the "car buying experience" so I dont want to do that again anytime soon.

I had my WJ for almost a little over 7 years and average around 15,000 miles per year. It still runs great but was very outdated. I'd guess my current vehicle will be outdated itself in another 7 years. If I sold it then the 8 year warranty would be expired (if it starts from original in-service date). Looks like lifetime would be my best option.

If nothing else the piece-of-mind alone looks very appealing.

Does anyone know if my quoted prices will jump once I hit 36k miles?

You had better get your warranty before the 3 year 36k warranty expires.

Good call. I'll most likely be putting more miles on this vehicle driving everyone to football/basketball games (which we do quite a bit of) being that its new (to me) and shiny.

Also I've decided not to factor in warranty transfer at sale in this decision, so lifetime seems like a no-brainer.

Re: Looking for recomendations for Extended Warranties

Just got back from the dealer. They beat the online quote for lifetime maxcare so I'm pretty happy. Glad that's taken care of.

So just curious what did you end up paying for it?

Re: Looking for recomendations for Extended Warranties

Has anyone been able to confirm if any of these extended service contracts cover the air suspension system?

Great. Only reason I ask is I've owned a VW Touareg before with air susp and in little print on the back of the extended warranty it said air susp items were excluded. What a rip off.
