Best price on Chrysler lifetime warrantee?

Hello all. My 2012 JK 2 door sport is nearing one year in age and I am seriously considering the Chrysler Lifetime Maxcare warrantee with $100 deductible.

By searching this site I have read many pros and cons, which I appreciate. Since I keep vehicles a long time (the YJ I traded in was a '94) lifetime is the way to go. Also, until recently, I did most of my repair work. Unfortunately, as I have recently crossed the 60 year old line, heavy repair work is no longer as fun as it used to be so it is time to farm it out.

What I would like to know is what some of you paid for the Maxcare warrantee so I have some idea what to negotiate for. Two sites listed in previous threads have given me a $2,245 price and a $2,185 price. Has anyone gotten below $2,100? $2,000? The local dealer is at $2,500 and will not budge so I'll be shopping around online.

Any info will be appreciated.

Rich

Price on this keeps going up. I remember when i first bought my 2012 it was around $1800 +/- via the online usual suspects.

Check Jeep.com if you haven't already. You can buy it online directly from Chrysler. In my case, the website was about 40% less than the dealer wanted.

Definitely check the online places. Absolute lowest my dealer would go was ~$2500. I bought from Harold Zeigler for $2185, and they offer 12 month no interest financing, so I didn't have to front the whole thing up front, just 10%.

You'll be lucky to get anything warrantied under an extended warranty. Just save your money instead, take care of your Jeep and keep your fingers crossed.

Why do you say this? Is the fine print all excluding or something?

I have never had an issue with claims under an extended warranty. The last vehicle I bought one for, they paid out almost $10k on multiple claims.

I walked into the dealership when I bought my Jeep in March with the printout from Chrysler extended warranty, Factory backed extended warranties for Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler vehicles where I could get the lifetime for somewhere around 2200 and I said I wasn't going to pay more than that because I could just buy it online. The woman fed me some BS about their cost being 2100 or 2150 but she'd make an exception for me so they sold it to me for 2200. I was happy with it. I remember reading posts where people bought it for sub 2k but I definitely think the price has been creeping up lately.

But these extended warranties don't cover anything if you use Jeep off-road or if you modded it at all outside of manufacturer specifications, no? At least that's what the fine print states on that link. Can anyone clear this up?

Thanks for the $2,000 info. Ziegler just matched that for the lifetime maxcare.

I've got Lifetime MaxCare on my WK2 (orig owner) and was going to add it to my Wrangler (used 2012) but is the Lifetime option only available to "original purchaser" or can second owners add Lifetime as long as the Jeep still within the basic warranty parameters? A finance guy at a local dealer (I was poking around prices) said Lifetime was only available to original owners. Anyone? Bueller?

Wish I had bought one with my 08 JK ... would have been around $2K at the time for a lifetime warranty. I've put way more than that into repairs.

Did buy the lifetime warranty on my 07 Commander for $2K ... has saved me over $10K in repairs.

I'll never own another Jeep without an extended warranty.

I also have mine through Zieglar. You then get to make monthly payments on the official Mopar Vehicle Protection site Mopar Vehicle Protection Payment Plan Zieglar was much less than jeep.com (over 1k less) and the dealer.

I paid something like 2500 or 2700 for the lifetime extended warranty on my 13 JK Sport last weekend (July 6th). Just thought I would put it out there for reference. If anyone needs a reference for negotiating let me know and I can send info.

Just under 2k from C.R. Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Hudson , Mi.
I talked with Rodney , he was very helpful . I did a down payment and Mopar had zero financing for the rest . Why spend my money when zero interest is out there .

I will be ordering a 2014 in the next couple of months. Definitely want the extended warranty since we plan on keeping it forever! Would love negotiating tips. The price I saw on the jeep website was going to be around 3000. I'm hoping for more like 2k to 2500.

Previously posted (about three weeks ago):


"That is one one the best values in the car business!! Unlimited miles, unlimited years!! The only restriction is it is non transferable, and it the coverage will max out at the retail book value of the car at the time. One touchscreen or ecm/pcm going out and you are ahead! I sell them for $1985.00 all day long!"


This was written by Mike Noble from Hayes Jeep. He's a forum member (ID Noble). I'd say send him a message and see if you can get it from him and save a little bit of money!

For what it's worth, I have never spoken to the man, just happened to remember seeing it posted earlier. Passing along solely because it sounds like a cheaper option.

Have a great night, everyone!

if you are planning on keeping it forever make sure you get a Rubicon or you will be trading within a year lol.

The best tool I had for negotiating price was a smartphone. When I was in the dealership I pulled up the jeep model I was looking for on autotrader and even called another dealership while sitting there negotiating. I found what I wanted somewhere else at a better price and refused a deal until they beat it. I'm sure the dealer made some money off me but I believe I got a fair deal. I paid less than what Kelly blue book had listed as dealer invoice. Can't ask for much more than that.

Forum member Noble claims he sells the lifetime warranties for $1,985. Apparently, he works in sales at a dealership in Kalamazoo, MI.

Here's the link to his post: Chrysler Extended Warranty

Oops...I just noticed that someone else mentioned him in this thread after I posted the reply.
