Chrysler Extended Warranty

Interested in keeping your Chrysler repair costs down? Purchasing an extended warranty is a way to offset expensive repair bills once your factory warranty expires.

CARCHEX protects your vehicle and bank account with our flexible protection plans. Read on to learn more about a Chrysler extended warranty and your options for coverage.

What Is a Chrysler Extended Warranty?

Extended warranties are vehicle protection plans that begin after your factory warranty ends. Chrysler provides these warranties through Mopar®, which is the parts, customer care, and service business inside of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). These warranties are available for all FCA brands—Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo. This is noted as FCA US LLC in your warranty.

What’s Included in a Chrysler Factory Warranty?

When you purchase a new Chrysler from the dealership, you also drive away with a manufacturer warranty. Here’s what covered in your Chrysler factory warranty:

Chrysler Warranty Details
3-Year/36,000-Mile Chrysler Basic Limited Warranty
  • This is a Chrysler bumper-to-bumper warranty that provides comprehensive coverage for your vehicle.
  • Your vehicle is towed to the nearest FCA dealership for free in the case of a break down.
  • This Mopar warranty covers the cost of repairing or replacing defects from workmanship or materials.
5-year/60,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty
  • This powertrain warranty covers your transmission, engine, and related parts.
  • Chrysler provides free towing to the nearest dealership.
  • This warranty is transferable to new owners if the transaction happens before the coverage period ends.
Roadside Assistance Services
  • Flat tire, dead battery, or no fuel? Roadside assistance includes tire replacement, gas delivery, towing, and more.
Mopar Parts and Accessories Limited Warranty
  • Many of the Mopar parts have different warranty periods and limitation, including batteries, water pumps, and catalytic converters. Make sure to read your specific warranty carefully so you know what to expect.

Your Chrysler factory plan also include the California emissions standard warranty. In addition, you can choose to purchase a Mopar extended warranty, or Mopar Vehicle Protection® plans, as additional coverage for new vehicles.

Chrysler Extended Warranty Coverage: Mopar Vehicle Protection Plans

Mopar Vehicle Protection complements your current coverage and provides mechanical coverage after your original warranty expires. The two warranty plan options are Maximum Care℠ and Added Care Plus℠.

Maximum Care

FCA’s highest level of extended coverage, Maximum Care, protects more than 5,000 components beyond your warranty. In previous years, you could select a warranty period of either eight years/125,000 miles or the vehicle’s lifetime. However, the Chrysler Lifetime Maxcare warranty option ends in late 2018. This affects the Dodge extended warranty, Chrysler Pacifica extended warranty, Ram extended warranty, and more.

If your vehicle is also covered with the 5-year/60,000-mile or longer Powertrain Limited Vehicle Warranty, you are eligible within four years from the vehicle’s original in-service date and 48,000 miles.

What’s not covered under Chrysler Maximum Care:

  • Regular maintenance services
  • Wear and tear items, including tires, brake pads, wipers, and more
  • Catalytic converter
  • Particulate filter
  • Body and paint items
  • Glass, plastic lenses, and light bulbs
  • Snow plows, winches, and trailer hitches

Added Care Plus

This plan extends your coverage on more than 850 powertrain and major components with factory-backed protection. Chrysler vehicle owners choose the terms: either five or eight years and mile options ranging between 60,000 and 125,000 miles. You can also pick your deductible, based on the plan you select.

Vehicles covered by the 5-year/60,000-mile or longer powertrain warranty are eligible within four years from the in-service data and 48,000 miles.

Both Maximum Care and Added Care Plus include these benefits:

  • $100 deductible
  • $1,000 trip interruption protection
  • $600 key fob repair or replacement coverage
  • $100 towing allowance/roadside assistance
  • First day rental allowance
  • Car rental allowance
  • Transfer policy

Should I Consider a Chrysler Extended Warranty?

There are plenty of reasons why purchasing an extended warranty to protect your Chrysler can be a smart move. Here are some facts to consider:

  • Keeps the money in your pocket—Extended warranties can save you from spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on unexpected car repairs.
  • Peace of mind—Knowing that you won’t be caught unprepared with a costly repair bill puts your mind at ease.
  • Long-term plans—Are you planning on keeping driving your Chrysler vehicle for years to come? If so, purchasing an extended coverage plan can help you afford inevitable repairs.
  • Resale value—Protected vehicles have a higher resale value. Most extended warranties, including Mopar Vehicle Protection plans, are transferable.
  • Car reliability—Is your specific Chrysler model known to reliable? If you are aware of common repairs, an extended warranty can help you plan ahead.
  • Dealership vs. third-party companies—You can purchase a vehicle service contract from either provider, but know that there are big differences in plan options, repair shop flexibility, and, oftentimes, cost. For example, the cost of a Chrysler Mopar warranty may be wrapped up into your car payments, so you’d actually be paying interest on your extended coverage.

Chrysler Reliability and Repairs

With so many makes and models, it can be difficult to know if an auto brand is reliable until you experience it for yourself. Doing your research before you make a purchase can give some insight. Here are few highlights as you get started:

Even the most reliable cars break down sometimes. Chrysler owners report spending an average of $531 on repairs a year.

How to Make Your Chrysler Last

If your goal is to drive your Chrysler until it dies, follow these tips:

  • Follow the maintenance schedule outlined in the owner’s manual. It will tell you when to change the oil and filters, rotate your tires, and other basic car maintenance services.
  • Use reliable parts. Stick to what the manufacturer offers or suggests or talk to a trusted mechanic about your options.
  • Clean the inside and outside of your car on a regular basis. This helps prevent rust and other damage.
  • Protect your car by parking in the shade, garage, or carport to protect it from sunshine, bird droppings, pollen, and other environmental factors.
  • Check your tire pressure regularly. Keeping your tires properly inflated saves gas and keeps you safe while driving.
  • Purchase an extended warranty. That way, you can afford important repair when you need them. Waiting to fix a problem could further the damage and end up costing you more.

What Determines Your Chrysler Extended Warranty Cost?

Whether you purchase the MaxCare extended warranty or a plan offered by a third-party company like CARCHEX, factors for establishing the cost of an extended warranty for a Chrysler include:

  • Coverage level—Warranty plans that cover more components are more expensive than lower-tier plans.
  • Payment plan—If you pay a deductible, you pay a lower premium.
  • Type of car—Protection plans for luxury vehicles usually cost more.
  • Car condition—Older age and higher mileage can increase your extended warranty cost.

Keep in mind that the cost of a monthly extended warranty payment may be more affordable than an upfront expensive car repair bill.
