Wondering if it is worth buying the extended dealer warranty on the new 392... it being the first model year I am leaning toward paying for it. Thoughts ?

I bought the 8 year/70,000 mile $100 deductible Mopar MaxCare plan for mine. Paid $2340. There are a lot of different opinions on extended warranties, but I'm a fan. I know what repairs can cost, so this is cheap insurance in my mind. Perhaps I've been jaded by owning too many Range Rovers!

I think extended warranties are an insurance racket. You pay money and they look for any reason to deny the claim because of something you did to your vehicle. Once in a blue moon you hear it saved someone some coin but most often it is not used or denied. Put that money in a savings account and have it available should you need it.
My 2 cents...which is worth about that!

Wouldn't you think the 392 would probably be the most reliable wrangler powertrain though? Obviously axles will pop quite easily but the engine/trans itself should be quite reliable I would think.

Now for the rest of the JL-ness, the warranty could be a great option but I personally wouldn't get it specifically because of the 392

Just thinking of it being the first year for them.. sure there will be come bugs but I guess if they don't show up before 36k miles they are probably not going to be a problem.

Others posters make very valid points both ways... still on the fence.. guess I will decide when I sign the paperwork hopefully later this week..

Cheers

I absolutely would on a first model year with new packaging.

Use Tom Winkles at Hayes Jeep if you want the mopar extended warranty. He quoted like $1250 or something crazy if I remember right and that was for an 8yr 80k+ warranty. Might have changed since then but he is always one of the best on the forums!

New model or not, it’s still a Jeep. 🍋 🔥 🍻

I think most of the engines and drive train is low risk. It's everything else. All the computers and electrical.

I would consider a warranty for all of the electronics on new vehicles. Plus inflation. Labor is getting more expensive. A few hours diagnosing can easily cost $300-$400 in labor. The crappy 8.4" UConnect 4 infotainment head unit has a $2K msrp or something? I had 2 of them replaced under the regular bumper-to-bumper and there was still a problem. The dealer spent countless hours trying to figure out what was wrong. I mean more than a month. I was in a rental loaner for over 5-6 weeks. I would hate to see the invoice on that claim.
