Got a letter today asking me to call Chrysler about a Maximum Care Coverage warranty. Is this the same warranty discussed on this forum earlier? Is it better to discuss this on the phone with the folks on the letter or is there a better price available by buying through my dealer or another dealer. About what is the going price? What all is covered? Probably not things like tires, batteries, brakes, and wear items, right? From what I have been reading about batteries, the plan would be worth it if they were covered!

So far I have had ZERO problems other than squirrels eating the engine compartment up..

You are correct about the items you mentioned (batteries, brakes, tires, and wear items) not being covered under the Mopar Maximum Care warranty. I plan to keep my van as long as reasonable so I got the extended warranty. (I kept my 2001 Grand Caravan until just over 200,000 miles (until Pacifica came out) since I didn't like the boxy Grand Caravans.) One thing I noticed in the "fine print" was that once it became more expensive to repair the van than the value, I would be given the value amount and the "lifetime" policy would end. I don't think Lifetime warranties are offered any more.

You might be able to check the Mopar or Zeigler website for more details on the extended warranty. Here is some info. you can start with.

Hi guys I am totally new to Chrysler. I saw the ChryslerFactoryPlans.com site earlier and passed over it as some third-party knock-off warranty.

But you guys are saying the site is legitimate and is the same as the Mopar warranty a dealer would offer?

So sorry for the noobie questions...

Thanks. I did call Mopar directly and they gave a good deal on a 7 year/75000 mike warranty.

They told me all the others are not official, accepted or legit, but maybe they tell everyone that.

It was $3100 for the $0 deductible 7/75k. I think I Paid too much. I called back today and they said anyDealer Mopar Warranty is legit and I can cancel the one I purchased in 60 Days no penalty.

Looks like Ziegler is $1000 less.

I wanted to ask opinions on the deductible. If you are in the shop 3 times your deductible pays for the higher plan. Anyone doing the $0 deductible or the $100 deductible?

Others are more knowledgeable and experienced on this, but my understanding is that the price goes up in each 1 year/12,000 mi cycle. The dealer might have designs on being the one to sell it to you, in which case it would be in its interest for you to wait. I don't think buying at 3 years gives you 7 years from point of purchase (in case of 7 year warranty), so you don't get any added benefit from waiting. The only thing you gain is perspective on your vehicle. If it's been one of the ones that is problematic, you can better assess whether or not the warranty makes economic sense after a couple of years. But if you think no matter what you're going to want the warranty, everything I've seen written on these fora suggest that you should get it within the first year/12,000 miles. Happy to be corrected by the old pros on here, though.

Thanks. I will see what options we have i might as well get if that is the case.

Any preferences on the $200 vs $100 vs $0 deductible?

Also any preference between Ziegler and Chrysler Warranty Direct? Chrysler Warranty Direct is coming out Cheaper at the moment.

As a general rule, while you'll always lose money on an extended warranty, you'll lose less the higher the deductible.

Personally, if I were to get an extended warranty it would be to protect me from huge losses, so there's no question in my mind that I'd pick the maximum deductible available. But it obviously depends on how they're priced.

Also, the only reason I can think of for the warranty to be cheaper to buy initially is that they think they're less likely to have to pay out, presumably because the vehicle might never get to the extended warranty period before it's totaled, bought back, or otherwise taken out of service. Otherwise the price should logically drop with time since they are more likely to lose out on the sale.

Plugging in some random numbers on the Ziegler site for the 7/75 plan, they want an extra $205 to move from the $200 to $100 deductible, and a whopping $510 to go from $100 to $0.

For the $100 deductible to pay off, you’d need 3 repair visits. For the $0 to pay off you’d need quite a few more. This doesn’t seem like particularly great value.

We got the 7/75 with $200 plan because we wanted it to be FCA’s problem if the van needed a huge repair. Don’t need them to cover small dollar amounts. The most likely outcome with these plans is you never use them at all.

Note that the plans cover loaner cars, which can actually be a meaningful value add for the cheaper plans.

It took a bit under 60 days to cancel my warranty purchased directly from Mopar. They posted my refund to a closed Credit Card and now I am waiting for that. Love the hold music for 30 minutes, however I think they are trying to improve their customer service at Mopar Warranty Department.

So once my cancellation was finalized, I went with Chrysler Warranty Direct
Jason there was very knowledgeable and helpful. They are slightly cheaper than Ziegler when looking at their sites.

I highly recommend Chrysler Warranty Direct. PM me if you want Jason from Chrysler Warranty Direct’s number.
