Why Have Warranties Gone Up Again?
 
I wasn't surprised when the extended warranty plans increased in 2012, but they've gone up again. When I bought my lifetime max two months ago, it was $1900 and now it is saying 2000. I was going to cancel it and get one of the 7 year plans.

Seems strange that they would have a 20% increase in two months.

Not sure, but how do you get a 20% increase from $1900 to $2000?

More like a 5.25% increase...

The house always wins. I think more and more people are buying them and they have to make up a way to retain for their upcoming losses.

Think that's bad. When I asked the cost when doing my financing two weeks ago, I was quoted $2700.

Don't think as much that the price went up as the dollar is going down. Would some Canadian friends care to comment ?

I was quoted $2000 as well. It was $1840 in September. chryslerfactoryplans actually followed up the quote with an email that said there are no active promotion codes at this time. chryslerwarrantys.com on the other hand does still seem to be sending promotion codes, but their prices were higher so it was still over $2000.

x2

His math is way off. And I blame the increase on Obama. But if you ask Obama it's probably Bush's fault.

they were $1825 at the end of December. My bad - that's closer to 10%, but still . . .

One Canadian friend can simply say I wish we could buy extended Chrysler warranty for the US prices (in either dollar). We get hosed on warranty prices here.

Price increase was January 1 2012. In December 2011 they stated that there was a increase coming.

Dunno, 4.8% of MSRP vs 6.8% for a Laredo. Sounds like a deal.
