just picked mine up last night....

Hi all. I just picked my JKU Sport last night. Will post pics soon when it's light out but had a question about warrantees. We think we got a great deal on the Max Coverage lifetime warrantee but wanted to solicit your opinion on price paid. We plan on owning the Jeep for it's lifetime so we went with the lifetime coverage. We paid 1900, 100 over dealer cost. The finance guy even showed us his binder and said "its the end of the year I have nothing to hide I am trying to meet my quotas.". We figured is 10 years out our fuel pump or water pump or some other named non-wear and tear part goes we will be covered for all but a 100 dollar deductible. Smart? Or was I stupid to buy this plan regardless for what it retails for?
Go ahead lay it on me...

They are negotiable # 1

Only go with the Chrysler backed EW.

Read the link above, there are several good companies to work with. I saved some money by finding one from WarrantyDirect and then negotiating the price down further.

Yes this was a Jeep backed policy. The dealership we bought from on sells their own, they don't sell third parties policies anymore.

My wife did research and found Geico has a similar policy but honestly I didn't like the thought of a third party policy. After all if something goes wrong 6 years from now it will be easier to pull into a Jeep dealership then figuring out who takes this obscure Geico policy.

Any policy worth anything will allow you to go anywhere, including the dealership, for repair. They should also pay up front rather than you paying and them reimbursing you.

The 3rd party one I got satisfies all of these requirements.

Exactly! This policy is honored at all Jeep dealerships and all lodging and loaners are covered as well in the event we are away from home. Oh and we don't pay any up front costs the dealership takes care of it.
