Awesome! Thanks for the information guys. That makes getting a warranty even more worthwhile for me.

If you plan to keep the jeep for the very long term the maxcare lifetime is an easy decision. The key is to keep it long term.

Re: Maxcare opinions

Check out the road hazard deal too.

It's like $300 for 7 years. And covers after market wheels and tires.

This is the key question you need to ask yourself before you buy into Max Care. "Long term" means well past the factory warranty. As new cars get more dependable, (and expensive), The average age of cars and light trucks on the road has increased, and is now 11.5 years old. That's considerably longer than just a few years ago.

If you fit into this category, Max Care is a no brainer. If you plan on keeping it 5 years or less, then it isn't required. Speaking for myself, I think the cost is very reasonable considering the purchase price of the vehicle. And how much dealers charge to repair them. $1K can disappear from your wallet in a heartbeat.

My dealer replaced a blown rear shock and replaced my 8.4AN in my 14 Overland under the Max Care. I would bet that comes close to paying for the cost of the Max Care Lifetime.

I wouldn't doubt that one bit. I would hate to even think what that 8.4 inch screen costs to replace with labor.

Labor can't be too bad. I pulled into the dealership about 8:35 and I was home before 10:00. It's a half hour drive. However, I will give them props as they transferred over my Sirius subscription and my UConnect, both of which I thought I would have to take care of myself.

Re: Maxcare opinions

Was extremely disappointed to learn the maxcare lifetime warranty is not available on the diesel. Guess I will settle for the 8 year/125k mile.

That's fine, just as long as you don't exceed either. If you do you are wandering into extremely expensive territory if something should go south.

Re: Maxcare opinions

Which is exactly why I wanted the lifetime warranty. I usually keep my vehicles for a very long time. I had my 95 grand Cherokee from 65k to 237k and only sold it because I joined the military. My BMW has over 320k on it.

So, the lifetime warranty was a big deal. It almost makes me reconsider the diesel, but I do a lot of long road trips and will be doing a bit of towing.

Understood. As I mentioned, I'm in the same boat, and would be driving a diesel now if the Unlimited Lifetime Warranty was available for it. The HEMI still provides 7,400 pounds of towing capability in 2WD. More than enough to pull anything I'll ever buy at this stage of my life.

Re: Maxcare opinions

I contacted Ziegler while waiting for my Jeep. I got a quote of $1080 for 5/60,000 Max care with a $50 deductible.

Today I stopped in at the dealer who will be servicing the Jeep. First they suggested a third party warranty. When I said no he said that Chrysler is pretty expensive, but I can have it for $100 over his cost.

I wound up with Max Care 5/60 $0.00 deductible for $885. He showed me how once he put my vin in all sorts of options.

Point is, don't overlook your local dealer.
