So, this mean after 7/100k, all non mechanical parts won't be covered? Just stay as power train pk?

Also, no lifetime warranty for second owners?
I was told that lifetime is not transferable only the other maxcare ones are. i will never buy from the dealer again a warranty on a jeep as this is crazy cheaper

Yes, I don't even know if the lifetime maxcare one is even worth it. I have 42k miles on mine now and I have til 48k to decide what package to take.
I'm leading for now to power train lifetime one, as I will keep the jeep as long as I can. I just need the main and the most expensive parts cover under power train, the rest I can deal with it if something happens. So don't care about the transferring either.

Because you can transfer it to someone if you sell the car one time other states you can't.

The big deciding factor on whether or not to get the lifetime maxcare is how long you intend to keep the jeep. If you are someone that changes cars every 5 or 6 years I wouldn't even consider it but if you are someone that wants to keep the jeep for the very long term its an easy decision and should get it. If you plan to keep the jeep for the very long term (10, 12, 15 years or whatever) maxcare is a bargain. The powertrain is not really what concerns me the most its the multitude of other expensive stuff on cars these days. Like $1700 for 1 quadra lift shock, or $1800 for that crappy little forward sensor in the lower air dam or a busted uconnect or any other number of expensive fixes where just one failure and you have practically paid for the maxcare. power window, sunroof, alternator think of all the failure points over the long term. not to mention the other benefits, I have used the free rental car benefit about 15 times in the last 3.5 years. remember the days of bringing a broken car in and leaving with a $150 bill are over now its $900 or $1300 or thousands. the deductible is also per visit not per item. I typically never buy any type of extended warranties or service contracts but I bought this one, no doubt the $2100 I paid for maxcare will be easily recouped over the long term. So ask yourself how long you intend to keep the jeep, that's your decision point.

Everyone's circumstance is different. For me, the MaxCare Lifetime Extended Service Contract was pretty much a no-brainer, especially at Ziegler's price. I was "out of warranty" in two years due to mileage and even if I only keep the vehicle for 5 years, that same mileage would knock me out of the non-lifetime plans before their time ran out. It's also pretty much paid for itself...with a QL compressor and a lug nut issue plus the convenience of a rental/loaner even for warranty work early on. (Not that I've really had many issues...but certain parts are expensive) And at this point, I'll likely be in this 2012 for a few more years...my younger starts college next year (2017 fall) and that's not inexpensive.

If you don't put a lot of miles on and/or do not intend to keep the vehicle for many years, then the shorter plans might be the better choice for you if you want to insure yourself with a MaxCare extended service contract.

Yes, I intend to keep the jeep for long time. My decision is not about lifetime option, just between power train, added care or maxcare.
I do going to get lifetime but don't know which one.

As I said before my14 doesn't have the most expensive non-mechanical parts as air suspension, nor towing pk so no leveling shocks, no cameras, basic audio. etc. I think the only $$$ part is the uconet which I have the 8.4 with no navi. That's why I'm trying to not spend more if I don't need too.
Here is the difference on $100 deductible on lifetime pk.

1- Power train plus $875
2- Added Care Plus $1895
3- Maxcare $2530

Re: Maxcare opinions

If you have the V8 then you will be replacing the power steering rack at some point. That's $1500 and not covered under powertrain warranty

Re: Maxcare opinions

Are you able to purchase Maxcare after you purchase a Jeep?
For example, if you were to buy it from a mom and pop dealer and it had no OEM warranty left.
