We bought the Mopar Max Care lifetime warranty, from a dealer in Kansas as it was the best price. Cost was 2165. It's insane how much markup (quoted 3600) some dealers want to charge.
We are planning to keep this a while. My wife puts lots of miles on a year.

Good deal, can you please post a link to the dealer or the website you bought it from?

Thanks so much for the information Rammer. We were prepared to purchase the Lifetime warranty from Clay but our dealer was able to match his price. I'm happy to have the extended warranty for the added piece of mind; I plan on keeping this car for a long time.

What ways can this bundled with the car payment if you are buying the warranty from an outside source?

I can already feel any local dealer I buy from telling me it's $3600 for the warranty with a straight face.

If you know the price if the MOPAR warranty when you go in, then just tell them that you want that price. You could even tell them they could add a little meat on it for them for the convenience of you financing it. They probably won't want to lose the deal on the vehicle over the bit they are going to make on the warranty. If you buy direct from MOPAR, you can get interest free payments for 12 months, but if you are wanting to spread it out over something like 60 months you will need to do that at the dealer.

EDIT: I just checked the MOPAR site for purchasing the lifetime warranty on my vehicle and it ranges a lot between 0 miles and 250 miles.

@ 0 miles
Maximum Care $2,310.00
Added Care Plus $1,410.00

@ 250 miles
Maximum Care $3,415.00
Added Care Plus $2,865.00

I got sold a 3rd party warranty, and now am contemplating cancelling that and buying direct from MOPAR.

I was also sold the oil change plan at a marked up rate which I complained about and it has been fixed (almost). Still trying to decide if I want it at the rate I bought it at.

Can you provide a link to this information?

Bummer - I just tried to purchase the plan and the site says that they can't sell it to California; I need to get it from the local dealer :(

It looks like the warranty prices have changed. I was looking into again and LIFETIME is now coming up at $3615 whether I have 0 miles or 2k miles. I even tried using a different VIN at the dealer to see if it maybe remember my VIN and wouldn't let the price go down, but it was the same.

So either I was just getting bad information that day or they have changed the pricing.

I read they did increase the price of the extended warranties on Monday, the 11th of May.

Go back and enter any state you want, chances are they all refer you to your local dealer, that is what a Jeep.com link will do.

You can buy your Chrysler / FCA / Mopar / Jeep Extended warranty from ANY FCA dealer.

There are some very smart dealers that will gladly sell you a genuine FCA warranty at a greatly reduced cost. Some of the smart ones get engaged in forums, like this one:

The dealer http://www.zellermotors.com/

Contact: [email protected]

He's a member of wranglerforum.com . ClayR is his user name there and that's how I found him. Nice guy and very helpful. I got my paperwork from Mopar a week later.

Some FCA dealers run websites for the sole purpose of selling the warrantys:

Rough numbers, full retail is about $3K, dealer cost is less than $2k. There are some FCA Dealers who have setup websites to buy it direct from them, it does not have to come from the selling dealer but any FCA dealer. Also, on the Wrangler forums, some smart Jeep sales people sell them for about $1900.

A google search shows these three at the top, BUT, you always have go make sure you are buying the factory authorized warranty and not a third party one, some websites masquerade so you have to confirm yourself first.

http://www.chryslerwarrantys.com/lifetime_warranty.cfm
http://www.moparvehicleprotection.com/
http://www.chryslerwarrantydirect.com/

When you are equipped with a great price, go ahead and buy it from someone like Clay or see if your dealer will match the price.

CAUTION: Make sure you are only getting the Genuine Chrysler / Mopar Extended Warranty, such as this search:
https://www.google.com/search?q=gladly&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#newwindow=1&q=Genuine+Chrysler+/+Mopar+Extended+Warranty&spell=1

MAKE SURE you do not buy some ripoff 3rd party one some dealers and websites will push, you may save money, but you will be sorry, such as...
>>> All Car Coverage, you break it, we fix it, no limitations provided you see our authorized repair centers on the 5th Tuesday of every month so long as it is a full moon.

I already contacted Clay - we'll see what he comes back with next week.

I thought about getting it when I purchased the Jeep, but the finance guy pissed me off so I passed. He wanted to add the amount onto the purchase total, bringing up my payments.
If he offered it as a straight purchase I probably would have gone for it - I just didn't want to pay additional interest over the course of the loan....

You could've just made an additional down payment to cover the cost of the warranty and it would've been the same thing as them offering it as a seep rate item. They were trying to do you a favor by letting you finance the cost of the warranty.
