This is what I paid - did not get the refund option because if you use it for anything you get zip back.

7 year 100,000 Max care - $100 ded - paid $1480 - 10% down with 12 montly payments no Interest.

Does this warranty sound correct? It seems to good to be true.....

Might be a dumb question, but if I get an extended warranty of say five years, does it start after the factory warranty ends or will I be paying for three years worth when it will already be covered by Jeep? I see that there is five years on the powertrain from Jeep already.

Just trying to figure if it is worth coughing up for an extended warranty or not.

Cheers

When I purchased my extended warranty I was told that it starts at the time you drive it off the lot. Jeep has the 36 month (36,000 mile) basic bumper to bumper warranty and 60 month (100,000 mile) power train warranty included in your new purchase. Depending on what type of extended warranty you get, it should cover anything that doesn't fall under Jeep's coverage (usually more applicable after the basic expires). I ended up with a 3rd party warranty that lasts longer than both Jeep's basic and power train and is fully refundable at the end of it's coverage period so long as no claims are made on it.

I wouldn't use anything but jeep/chryslers. 2nd jeep in a row I've bought the maxcare for piece of mind. Paid $1600 for my 05 JGC and paid for it self 4x over. Bought lifetime maxcare for my current 11 JGC and will have piece of mind for as long as I own her. Paid 2k for this one but think you can get it cheaper at Chryslerwarranty.com found at too late.
If you plan on keeping the jeep for 100k plus miles, it's worth it. So many expensive things can go wrong and/or break these days.
Good luck!

I have had 11 Chrysler vehicles and never needed to use an added warranty. A couple needed something done in the first 12000 miles. If it helps you sleep at night though, get it.

Just out of curiosity, I'm trying to compare the lifetime vs 7/10000 plans. Both say something about covering defects in material and workmanship, and exclude normal wear. So when would they consider a transmission or engine being worn out vs being defective? Has anyone run into this? I mean if I wear out the transmission clutches at say 120000 miles, or the engine starts using oil at 150000 miles, it would not be covered right?

The way I'm reading it the lifetime plan is power train only, no coverage for the quadra lift, right?

I'm wondering if chrysler has an expected lifetime list for the components, and if there are any surprises there.

I have only had 1 transmission replaced in a 1994 Ram under ext warranty - it was no problem once they verified the service records. ON our 2005 Jeep GC the stitching came loose on the steering wheel - the dealer called and they replaced the steering wheel under the ext warranty.

I have 7/100000 on our 11 Overland. The lifetime is not trasferable if you sell your Jeep. As I recall there is a Max Care for the both the Lifetime and 7/100000.

You should share your questions with the dealer.

I bought the warranty, 7/100k. But kinda regretting it. I DO plan on keeping this Jeep for years and years. I never keep vehicles very long. I'd like to here. But regardless, with mods and all, eventually the warranty wont cover anything anyway right? I mean, the only things covered will be NON modded stuff, and by the time the factory warranty is up, I'll have quite a bit done! Make sense? Worth the $2k or should I cancel and get that money off my loan now?

Sorry for pulling up an oldy.... better than a new thread though right? So no flaming...

With the amount of electronics and other high-tech gear on your Jeep (assuming you have a JGC), my feeling is that the extended service contract (what it is...it's not a "warranty") isn't a terrible thing. One major component going bad pays for the cost of the contract. There are other benefits, too. I have the lifetime MaxCare and that also includes loaner/rental car first day provisions...important to me since most dealers do not provide loaners any more.

For the record, I traditionally have not been an extended service contract/warranty person. Here, I made an exception.

I am looking into the lifetime max care since I am considering getting a 2014 Limited with diesel and quadralift. I plan on keeping the vehicle for at least 20 years and I figure there is plenty of opportunity for something to go wrong with the turbocharger, diesel system, or air lift system. Not to mention all of the pesky electronics and computers. In the past, I have not done the extended warranties.

I received a quote of $2,350 (w/$100 deduct) from a dealer. Anyone know where I might beat that?

Unless they have changed something very recently, the Lifetime MaxCare service contract is not available on the Ecodiesel. Perhaps your dealer quoted a non-Chysler contract?
