When you purchase the chryslerwarrantys.com plan, it shows up on your official Jeep data page when you log on. This is the same as what the dealer sees when they service your car so it's an official warranty.

I purchased a 7/70 Maximum Care plan from Ziegler on 1/1/14 for my new '14 Overland. Easy to deal with, I e-mailed Bob Cline and asked if they could do better than the online quote and he sent me a code for $50 off. So net price was $1040 which I think is an incredible deal vs $2580 quoted on the Jeep website. It hasn't shown up in my owner connect account yet but he said it could take a week.

My plan showed up in my owner connect account on 1/6/14, looks legit!

I bought a MaxCare 7/85k $0 deductible from Bob at Zeigler Chrysler on my 14 Summit Diesel. Super easy to deal with, and by far the best price; $900 or so cheaper than my dealer. $2040, if I recall. I normally would not buy one but with it being a first year model and with all the electronics, I went for it. I also like the rental car benefit. We'll see, but at least it's peace of mind for me.

Good luck.

Thinking about getting either the 7yr or unlimited/lifetime before the 3/36 warranty runs out (I got like 4 months left), Ive always been able to fix anything I drive, but I just know this thing is loaded with computers and whatnot and it seems like the $2300 for the unlimited is a no brainer? seems like anything electrical that can go bad will cost that.

My neighbor has a 2007 GMC Denali . Since it hit 120k , he has " dribbled " $9000 in repairs over the past year . Mostly ( air) suspension , engine, and various luxury electronics issues. SUV was bullet proof until then. It just cost him $1000 to have his suspension compressor replaced.

Looks like it will be 99 k and out for my 2014 Overland.... It has the same stuff . I am going to " self insure" until then. The $2300 policy does sound tempting though.

These "extended service contracts" are performed by authorized dealers and they are required to buy/use genuine OEM/Mopar parts if available.

However, you made me read my official Mopar Vehicle Protection Plan document. I have the top Lifetime Maximum Care $100 deduct plan and it reads:

"Authorized repairs will be made using remanufactured parts. If remanufactured parts are not available, the Dealer will use new parts."

Hmmm

I'll probably get plenty of push back for saying this, but in my experience, there is nothing to fear with remanufactured parts. I spent half my career in the remanufactured locomotive propulsion parts business. Our failure rate in the field was considerably better than the new OEM systems we supplied. The process for remanufacturing parts essentially weeds out defects in the original part that may have been missed in the original manufacturing process. From personal experience with automotive parts, back in the day, we would swap out something like a blown water pump at the auto parts store for a replacement, and I never had a problem with a remanufactured pump, while a brand new OEM pump might fail right out of the box. YMMV.

Higher cost if you wait to buy aftermarket warranty?

I will definitely buy an extended warranty before the factory warranty wears out. Is there a significantly higher price if you wait until your factory warranty is nearly over?

I definitely would rather buy an online warranty and save some money (if I can). In some states like Oklahoma they require you to buy your warranty from a dealer, fortunately I'm not in Oklahoma anymore.

Price is same 35 miles or day 1/or 35,999 miles or month 35 BUT prices do rise overtime 5-10% per yr "ish"... I had mine rolled into my 36 mo/0% int payment to make me feel better about pre-paying although I also get free rental for my service visits (which you shouldn't be using :0).

According to Jeeps website they specifically say that they will only use "Genuine MOPAR replacement parts"

Interesting...I'd be one to question what the truth is. Obviously the contract you have will probably be their answer but their website is misleading if that's the case.

But aren't remanufactured Parts still branded as Mopar?
