MaxCare Warranty Assistance

I'm going to haggle with my dealship over the extended warranty tomorrow morning.
Can someone answer this?
The MaxCare, purchased on line from Jeep.com is $1,440 for 72 months/70,000 miles. (I live close to work. 70k is enough)

I figure the dealer will want $2,000 or more for the same thing.

Can anyone explain (beside the American profit motive) the possible difference?
Have you bought the one directly from Chrysler? Were their hidden costs that drove up the price?

Thanks.

Why don't you just get it online then?

I have been scouting around in the forum for more than a month now to get an idea of the Max. Care warranty price variation ( I still haven't bought one though :P)...the lowest I have seen someone being quoted by a dealer is $1800 for the Lifetime Max care, the lowest online price for the same that I saw is $1900. For the 7 year , the lowest I have seen is close to yours ..$1460. You can probably just ask the dealer to match the online price..they should be able to do it.

I tried to get our local dealer to match the online quote of 7/84 for $1600 and they
said the best they could do was $2900, I'll get mine from the online website.

When I bought the Lifetime Maxcare dealer cost was $1700, bought it for $1800 so dealer made $100. Its available online for around that or just a touch more. If you are going to keep the Jeep and were thinking of spending $1600 or more for 7/84 buy the lifetime. The only disadvantage to it is it is not transferable.
Any dealer can sell it to you you do not need to buy from your dealer. Pat posted the dealer cost in the 2012 thread for all the waranties so you can go in knowing their cost and offer them a couple hundred profit. He also posted the price he would sell them for which was a decent price as well.

Couple notes on it, it only pays up to the NADA value of the vehicle so its value will decline when the Jeep gets old. You must maintain as prescribed in the owners manual.

Which is correct:
A: You can purchase the 7/84 or the Lifetime MaxCare anytime before 4/48
B: The 4/48 purchase window only applies to the 7/84, Lifetime must be purchased new?

Got it, so:
- 7/84 Max Care purchased within the first 4/48
- Lifetime Max Care purchased within the first 12/12 by original owner (price goes up after)
