Glad to hear it!

I have a similar experience where the dealer appears to recommend the fidelity one over the Chrysler product. They seem genuine when recommending that overall it has been better coverage for their customers. I still kind of like the idea of having a manufacturer backed one though.

Decisions decisions...

Re: Maxcare vs Fidelity Warranties

Glad to see you had a good experience with the Fidelity Warranty. If the fidelity warranty is significantly cheaper than the Chrysler one then it would be worthwhile to consider. If they are the same price, the Chrysler one would be a no brainer. Also, if you plan on keeping the car longer than 7 years, don't forget about the Lifetime plan that Chrysler offers. I would take what the dealer recommends with a grain of salt...extended warranties and other add ons are the profit center at most dealers and they will push whatever gives them the most profit margin. Also check out chryslerwarrantys.com and look at their pricing for the Chrysler warranty vs your dealers pricing.

Re: Maxcare vs Fidelity Warranties

Does Fidelity have a lifetime option?

No - just 7 year 100,000 miles. The plan cost is about the same as a lifetime maxcare (with $100 deductible) but with lower deductible (0$ at the dealership the car was purchased from, $50 anywhere else).

Re: Maxcare vs Fidelity Warranties

I stopped by the dealership yesterday and they really seem to like this fidelity platinum warranty compared to Chrysler Maxcare. The sales manager I have been working with had no problem at all switching me over to the Chrysler plan if I wanted to (for a good price too of about $1800) but he honestly seems to believe that the fidelity plan in his experience has covered many more things and people have been generally more happy with it. Like I said, I can still have it serviced at a Jeep dealership if desired. I was set on making the swap, but now I am torn again...:P

Maybe - not sure on the "true" cost of the fidelity warranty but given the fact that he is quoting me a very good price on the Maxcare I would guess he is doing the same with the fidelity option...

I just settled for the mopar ones because I got burned on aftermarket warranty already before.
