Lifetime Warranty and Maintenance Plan ?

I just put the order in for my new Jeep yesterday! I had a couple of questions ..With the price of the Jeep I received a free lifetime warranty from the dealership that was called warranty forever. I was told that we couldn't do our own oil changes with the warranty and that the dealership does offer (at the time of financing) a maintenance plan that reduces the cost of the oil changes by buying a package.

Has anyone heard of warranty forever and is it a good warranty program?

Has anyone bought the maintenance plan and/or think it is a good deal/bad deal?

I have a few weeks before my Jeep will be here and have time to decide if I want to buy the plan.

Thanks !

Re: Lifetime Warranty and Maintenance Plan ?

Kind of reminds me of a program that a local dealer offers for free lifetime tires.

While the tires would be replaced for free, such requires that one pay for a very aggressive maintenance plan of tire rotation, tire rebalancing, and alignments. I believe such is required every few months, and they charge a "pretty penny" for each service.

I would get something out of them in writing on what that warranty is. if they just gave it to you for free I would be suspicious. figure out what that warranty is before you signup for some other maintenance plan. third party plans not from the manufacturer are often a disaster when you try to collect on them. the life time Chrysler factory service contract that you want is called maximum care.

Re: Lifetime Warranty and Maintenance Plan ?

If there is a extra cost involved put that Monet twords a Extended Jeep warranty.
Maybe not a lifetime that Jeep offers but I guarentee the dealer is not going to warranty your Jeep a lifetime.
If you ever want to go to another dealer for whatever reason you won't have their plan providing the regular Jeep warranty is up. It has to be done at that dealership only.
Sometimes they will do the oil changes for a lifetime but like BMW it's like every 12,000 miles with synthetics. My BMW needed it more often but to bad it was on me then.
I NEVER go with the dealer only warranties but do go with the Manufacture extended warranties and tht has saved me a tremendous amounts of money over the years!
Beware of the dealer warranty.
