Is there a list of stuff it does cover?Too much and doesnt cover enough.
It's around somewhere. The Mopar warranties are called a stated warranty. They say they cover x,y,z, and thats it. If it is a smaller component that causes failure, its not covered. find an exclusionary warranty. That will state, it doesn't cover x,y,z. Much more comprehensive.Is there a list of stuff it does cover?
Speaking as someone who has in the last 2 years:
...I'm dead sick of fixing stuff and being too broke to actually upgrade anything, and a lifetime warranty, even if it costs too much and covers too little, is very appealing.
- Rebuilt my rear diff. Twice. At my expense.
- Replaced my factory rear locker because it blew up taking out the rear diff, hence the 2nd rebuild in 9 months.
- Replaced my front axle because I got bad advice when I started hearing a noise from the front diff, and tore it up.
- Had my manual transmission entirely rebuilt.
- Replaced the ball joints twice, the second time because my new (used) front axle had bad ones.
- Replaced my clutch and throw-out bearing, probably because the transmission needed that rebuild.
- Replaced all 4 wheel bearings.
- Replaced each front-end steering component, at least once.
- Replaced every throttle-related sensor, at least once.
I almost bought a 2017 2 door JK WIllys Wheeler W back in November. I inquired about the lifetime warranty. This is the pricing I got from the dealer:What is the current price of an FCA lifetime powertrain warranty?
It wouldn't shock me if a dealership blamed your, say, rear differential problems on an aftermarket locker. My factory locker blew up and took my rear diff with it, or at least so claimed the shop that had 9 months earlier rebuilt that same diff.So if you install a locker or something would it void the lifetime warranty?
They have to prove it was caused by the aftermarket part and it would be limited to the area in question, i.e. they couldn't refuse engine work because of the locker only the differential / axleSo if you install a locker or something would it void the lifetime warranty?

LIFETIME MAX CARE
$0 DEDUCTION: $5795
$100 DEDUCTION $3965
$200 DEDUCTION $3640

Obviously I'll get new pricing when I order my JL and try to negotiate it down, but I'm strongly considering it. I keep my vehicles pretty much forever and this looks like it actually covers quite a bit.
Wow, for that money, I'll just bank it and take my chances. I'd do a couple thousand, but not much more. If I stuck 7000 bucks in an investment, it would cover a whole bunch of issues over the life of the Jeep.I went in to my local dealership today to look at a JLU they had in the showroom. I spoke to the finance manager to get a rough idea of on how much the Lifetime Max Care was.
He told me:
$0 DEDUCTION: $7000 (approx)
$100 DEDUCTION $5300 (approx)
$200 DEDUCTION - we did not discuss this option...
They were not exact numbers since I was not purchasing today. But it gives you an idea on how much its gone up. He also mentioned that you did not have to do all of the required maintenances through FCA. You could get them done elsewhere.
For the $100 deductible one, I am curious to see how low I can negotiate to from $5300.Wow, for that money, I'll just bank it and take my chances. I'd do a couple thousand, but not much more. If I stuck 7000 bucks in an investment, it would cover a whole bunch of issues over the life of the Jeep.
