Jeep Extended Warranty: Compare Your Options

If there’s any vehicle deserving of an extended warranty, it’s a Jeep. After all, Jeeps are built for the road less traveled and tend to live a harder existence than the everyday family sedan.

You can find an extended warranty for your new or used Jeep at a third-party company like CARCHEX. With our five levels of coverage and a broad selection of packages designed to fit the different needs of today’s drivers, you’ll never have to worry about the health of your Jeep.

Does My Jeep Have a Warranty?

When you purchase a new Jeep from the dealership, it comes with a warranty from Chrysler. Similar plans are available for Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Fiat vehicles. This Jeep warranty includes:

  • 3-year/36,000-mile Basic Limited Warranty (comprehensive coverage)
  • 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty (covers the powertrain and related components)
  • Roadside Assistance Service (battery jumpstart, fuel delivery, flat tire service, and towing)
  • California Emissions Standard Warranty (covers items related to the state’s anti-smog standards)

Jeeps are built with some Mopar® parts that have separate warranties from those listed above.

These parts include:

  • Batteries
  • Brake pads/shoes
  • Collision parts
  • Shocks/struts
  • Catalytic converters
  • Mufflers
  • Gaskets and seals
  • Starters
  • Powertrains
  • Alternators
  • Diesel parts
  • Water pumps
  • Performance parts

Like most manufacturer warranties, your repair or replacement is only covered if it’s due to workmanship error or a faulty factory part. The best thing you can do is read your specific Jeep warranty and ask the dealership all your questions about what is covered and what isn’t. That way, you understand what’s truly covered and are careful to not accidentally void your warranty.

Jeep Maintenance and Repair Costs

Considering that the average driver keeps their car for 6.5 years, it’s quite possible you’re planning on driving your Jeep past its limited warranty. Then what? You’re stuck with the complete cost of the repair or replacement.

Jeep owners can expect to pay about $8,300 in a 10-year period to keep their car on the road. Some of these repair costs could look like this:

  • $630 to replace the control arm assemble (front lower left) on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • $677.37–$1,434.34 to replace a car AC compressor on a Jeep Wrangler
  • $212.14–$410.31 to repair a car starter on a Jeep Compass
  • $205–$291 to replace a door lock actuator on a Jeep Cherokee
  • $754–$900 to replace a head gasket on a Jeep Commander

If one of these fixes was needed on your Jeep, would it be a struggle to pay for the repair? Given this cost of maintenance, it’s easy to see why an extended Jeep warranty that costs just a fraction of that makes sense. An extended warranty can offset the cost and alleviate some of the stress of not being able to afford the repairs in the case of a breakdown.

You can purchase a Jeep extended warranty, which is really an auto service contract, from the dealership or a third-party provider like CARCHEX. Let’s compare these coverage options to see what’s a better fit for your vehicle.

Mopar® Vehicle Protection for Jeeps

After your Jeep factory warranty expires, the Chrysler dealership offers additional mechanical coverage for Jeeps that complements your warranty. This is factory-backed protection through two Mopar Vehicle Protection Plans: Maximum Care℠ and Added Care Plus℠.

  • Maximum Care covers more than 5,000 components, which exceeds the new car warranty, and is backed by FCA US LLC (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles).
  • Added Care Plus isn’t as extensive but still covers more than 800 components, including the powertrain.

Both Mopar extended warranties include these extra benefits:

  • $100 deductible
  • $600 key fob repair/replacement
  • First day rental allowance ($35)
  • Car rental allowance ($35 a day, up to $175 per occurrence)
  • $100 towing allowance/roadside assistance
  • $1,000 trip interruption protection
  • Transfer policy with a $50 fee (Lifetime coverage may not be transferable, based on your location.)

Compare Jeep Extended Coverage from CARCHEX

A way to decide whether Mopar’s Jeep extended warranty is worth it is to compare your third-party provider options.

CARCHEX Extended Vehicle Protection Plans are backed by reputable companies all competing for your business. That way, CARCHEX is able to offer you the lowest price on the market. We have five levels of protection—Titanium, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze—with several coverage options within each tier.

These plans range from comprehensive, bumper-to-bumper coverage, lasting up to 10 years, to basic plans that cover the most common, expensive repairs to the engine and transmission for up to five or six years.

CARCHEX Vehicle Protection Plans

The increased number of choices isn’t the only reason to consider coverage from CARCHEX. A Jeep extended warranty from the dealership limits you to using their auto shops and technicians. That can prove to be a real inconvenience if you have a breakdown or live a long way away from an approved dealership. With CARCHEX, you have the flexibility to choose from over 30,000 certified repair facilities. That way, you can use your preferred, trusted auto shop or mechanic.

What’s more, we offer roadside assistance and perks that are comparable to Mopar’s offerings. However, we don’t require a deductible, which is $100 with Mopar.
