Pricing on Max Care Unlimited warranty?
 
After a bit of research the Max care unlimited warranty really seems like a great idea. The primary reason we ever trade in or buy a new vehicle is the looming threat of having to spend money on expensive out of warranty repairs.

Just curious where the cheapest place to get one would be?

For the lifetime max care on a '14 GC with 4x4, the dealer cost is $1885. I got mine for $2,000.

Use Google. There are several dealers selling on the internet. Just be sure you are getting the Chrysler, not a third party, warranty, if that is what you want. Once you get a price you can either buy through the internet as I did, or bring that price to your dealer to see if they will match it.

Do you have a deductible? If so, how much? I just can't find anything anywhere close to the price you paid.

I paid $2180 for my lifetime Max Care service contract from an online Chrysler dealer. (It's not a "warranty"...) That was about the lowest available at the time.

My dealer matched the online price without the slightest quibble.

Try chryslerwarrantys.com

Get a quote. Don't act on it right away. In about 1-2 wks they will send you a discount code good for $207 off the original quote.
I got a quote 5-wks ago and I get emailed a discount code about once per wk.

Ditto.

And, just for consideration... We went with the 7yr/100k mile Max Care contract. Our reasoning is that this one is transferable, whereas the lifetime is NOT.

Is any portion of either refundable? I ask because I am currently leasing though I might buy the car after the lease is over if all is well with the truck. But I don't want to wait too long to get the max care because costs go up after the first year.

If you get the lifetime, and depending upon when you cancel the plan, you are able to receive a full or pro-rata refund.

Whether the lifetime is trasferable depends on what state you are in. Florida appears to be one in which it is.

Are several deductables, I chose the $100 and bought lifetime added care + instead of maxcare. My reasoning was that the savings paid for the service manual several times over & small repairs can be done for less than a benjamin.

ps asked my dealer if they would match and they wouldn't.

I just had my dealer show me the actual cost (max care, lifetime, $100 deductible) and we agreed on a fair profit for him and a good price fore me, $2000.
