I know there is another Warranty thread out there, but no poll. I was curious to see how many people out there are getting FCA's lifetime warranty.

Also curious what you are being quoted at the dealerships.

Here are the ones I've heard so far:

Hayes Jeep in Kalamazoo, MI:
$2665 w/ $100 deductible
$2340 w/ $200 deductible

Koon's Tysons - Vienna, VA:
$3000 w/ $100 deductible

@Buzz quoted from another thread (dealership unknown):
$2,760 w/ $100 deductible

I have a quote from tom at Hayes Jeep. I'll do the $100 deductable option and try to push my dealer to match.

I wonder what kind of deal I can get on the next level down (8 yr/125K miles I think)

I just would like to keep that transferability and the ability to get a refund (like if the Jeep is totaled)

If the warranty is valid over the 'lifetime' of FCA, it might not even last as long as the 3/36k bumper-to-bumper.

1. What time window do you have to buy the lifetime warranty? Anytime before the 3 years is up or ?
2. If you don't buy it at receipt of the Wrangler, do they need to inspect it before they sell you the lifetime warranty?
3. Is only the dealer who sold you the Wrangler allowed to sell you the lifetime warranty or can any dealer? Must it be a local dealer or can any dealer in the U.S. sell it to you?

Thanks!

1. You can get the best pricing with under 12K miles and 12 months I think.
2. No
3. No, any dealer can sell it to you. I bought mine from my selling dealership, later canceled it and bought again from Tom and saved $600.00. You will get the best deal from Tom, email him at [email protected]

$2665 is a pretty good price for the maxcare lifetime with unlimited miles. The one dealer I was working with was at $2965 while the dealer I ordered from came down to $2900. While I’m always game to save a buck, I’m hesitant to try pushing for a lower price on the warranty since I’m getting almost 6% below invoice.

I spoke to Tom Winkels today from Hayes Jeep. The price for the Max Care warranty will be going up on April 3rd, 2018. Last year it went up by $235. So if you have your jeep and you were looking to get this warranty, now would be the time.
