Interesting. It is the same dealer I am working with to order a Limited with diesel. I specifically asked for the Chrysler max care.

It looks lo me like the ecodiesel is covered. I went to the URL below and clicked on engine. It listed these components (among others):
Fuel Injection Pump (Diesel engines only)
Turbocharger Housing and all Internal Parts
Turbocharger Waste Gate Actuator

MaxCare is available for non-lifetime plans, such as the 7 year plans with x mileage, but I know my Lifetime contract paperwork specifically excludes the diesel. Perhaps they are changing that going forward...it would be good if they did.

it looks like you are right. The diesel is covered on the non-lifetime plans, but not on the lifetime plan. That could be a deal-breaker for me. (I haven't yet put in an order.) I am not too keen on buying a diesel for the long-run if Chrysler doesn't believe in warranting the diesel for longer than 7 years. I buy vehicles for the long run: Chevy K10 - 30 years, ZJ - 19 years and counting.

I spoke with a rep' about the extended warranty for diesel-powered vehicles. There is a new 8-year plan. But, there is also an extension plan with the 7-year. If you get the 7-year plan and have low mileage (under 10K miles per year), in 7 years you can extend another 5 years (for a total of 12 years). The price of the 5-year extension is based on your mileage, but appears to be rather expensive (currently about $2,000).

Keep in mind that the dealers make a profit on the extended warrantees, whether they are from Chrysler or aftermarket, so don't take the first price they give you. Work them a little and don't let them know you want it for sure. The price will go down. Back when I bought my 2011 Overland my dealer dropped the price down on his own when he saw my lack of interest and I then got him to lower even more.

Remember also that lifetime plans have limits. When the repair cost is more than the book value of the vehicle, they pay you the book value and you are on your own. Doesn't take much to rack up a lot of $$$ for a diesel repair.

Diesel plan surcharges used to be expensive, dunno what they are currently. I should read through the thread to see if anyone mentioned it. Although not as many engines require repair, those that do are expensive to repair. Folks in the US typically buy the diesel to tow heavy, which puts more stress on components, although there are more and more enthusiasts. All contribute to the surcharges, along with marketing.

The best way I've found to get a deal on extended warranty, is to get a quote from one of the online dealers and take it to to your dealer and ask to match it. If he says no, well its the same warranty regardless, buy online. I'd recommend not going third party, just too many poor experiences.

Can anyone explain to me briefly the difference in coverage between the Added Care Plus and the Max Care plans?

Looking at price difference. Does added care NOT include any components that it would be unwise not to insure (picking Max Care Plan to do so)?

Could you post a couple of links to online dealers? I'm thinking seriously about shopping for a warranty, and I'm not sure where to start. Thanks.

jacko, thanks for the reply.

So without downloading the detailed list for both warranties side by side, how can I quickly determine what critical (and perhaps likely to fail) components are covered by the max care versus the lower plan.

Was hoping someone could answer in a brief reply. Example: If NAV unit wasn't covered by the lower warranty that would make a difference to me. Stuff like that.

Given the same deductible, the basic difference is that the lower priced plans cover only engine and drive train, the higher prices plans also cover electrical and electronic devices, ABS, power steering, etc. The most expensive plans is near bumper to bumper, similar to whats covered by the initial 3 year warranty. They simply list whats not covered (like light bulbs, tires, brake pads) and if not listed its covered.

I just bought the
"Life Time Guarantee" from Chrysler.

Said it was offered on the Overland with the Hemi.
Said- only this combination- but not real sure.
One look at the --Electronics--I figured
Get it.
