Extended Warranty

Hello all I am new to this forum as well as New to Jeeps. After owning everything you can think of and looking for something "else" for the wife I introduced my better half to Jeeps...as I have had my eye on them and thought that would be different. So after the last 3 Mercedes Benz ML's as of today she has a loaded Wrangler Sahara...all white(fenders & top) with tan leather...sweet little ride I must say. Looking at extended warranty as I am not planning on switching at 25K like everything in the past. Has anyone purchased this and if so whats your opinion? Thanks!

There are many threads already about the extended warranties if you use the search feature.

As far as the cost, I was offered the max care lifetime extended warranty for a little over $3,000 at closing. One of the forum members on here sells the same Chrysler warranty for less than $2,000. Shop around before you sign the paperwork.

I got a really good deal on my Jeep, $22,500, for a basic 2013 with hardtop, manual trans, and 3.73 gears.

When it came time to finance, the dealer wouldn't offer the warranty for less than $3850. That's almost 20% the cost of the vehicle, and my Jeep is a basic little tank (not much to break). The dealer said he'd lower my loan APR from 5.9% to 3.9% if I bought the warranty.

The warranty was fully refundable for 60 days, so I bought warranty, took the good interest rate, canceled the warranty, and kept the interest rate. F'em.

$3850 for a warranty is absurd, and it represents pure profit in most cases. I'm bumper-3-bumper for 3y/36,000 and full powertrain for 5y/100,000. I'm fine with that. I do my own wrenching.
