Would You Buy The Lifetime Maximum Care If They Brought It Back At A Little Higher Price?

    The most recent Lifetime plan excluded hybrid (BSG) components coverage and was not available for purchase on 6.4 Hemi, 6.2 SC Hellcat or diesel models. I doubt any of that would change.

    Thanks for the info. Then yeah. It’s not worth buying any of them. Those are all the expensive parts.

    You can get 7 year or 8 year plans on all of these. the SRT and Hellcat are super reasonable with low mileage options :)

    I would never buy any 'inclusive warranty', i.e. ones that only list what they DO cover. I want an 'exclusive warranty' that only lists what they DO NOT cover.

    I've seen 'inclusive' warranty claims frivolously denied too many times. "Well, your engine failed because a coolant hose burst, and hoses are a wear item not covered under your warranty."

    "Bumper to Bumper", like the original 3/36, that covers the high voltage systems, very important with the " mild hybrid", where the 48v lithium Ion battery unit can run $1500, plus labor.. Federal Emissions law requires 8 yr, 80,000 mile warranty, but that's short of what vehicles can and do reach in mileage today. Labor rates are at, and exceeding $100 hour, so a good warranty is essential. Build in quality, everyone benefits..

    I would not. I made modifications to my jeep and know that anything I experience will be denied because I modified it, and I'd then have to fight for coverage. No point. I'll just trust my local mechanic and the aftermarket to fix things since Jeep seems uninterested and more on the deny there is a problem train.

    I'm also convinced that my jeep will brick itself due to electronics long before the other parts are done. Uconnect is totally buggy. Half the time it won't recognize my finger press to change from map to radio or vice versa, but the voice command does work. Strange.

    My warranty was void by 6k miles. So extended warranties are no good to those of us who modify the jeep, lift tires, etc.

    Like others have stated that all too often we take our Jeeps in and the first thing the service manager informs us of is that our warranty is void due to lift and tires that Mopar did not do. I can see if we changed out parts for aftermarket and not covering those, got that, but if the electronics, motor, transmission, transfer case go out, and those things failing are not tied to the lift and tires being installed not being covered???? Having the service manager knee jerk to, "warranty voided due to..." then causes the owner to have to contact Jeep Cares and have it rain down on the dealership fm there. Guess what I'm getting at is the dealerships will have to be educated to just not tell the owner that their warranty is void because they have a cold air intake when the complaint is related to the transmission or some other item not tied to the CAI will have to STOP before I consider paying for the extended warranty. I'd like it to mostly cover the electronics.

    I attached a PDF that explains what types of lifts it covers.

    Hope this helps.

    I would not purchase extended warranty. I would rather do the work myself if/when there is an issue.

    > Please note that Mopar Lift Coverage covers normal vehicle usage.
    What qualifies 'normal vehicle usage' for a lifted jeep? That seems like a big loophole. Jeeps are 'trail rated' so is trail => normal?
