Whether you like to keep your Jeep on the street or take it off road, you need to make sure your vehicle is kept in top shape. Your Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram factory warranty gets you part way through your Jeep’s life, but what about the rest?
If you want your car to be protected for its entire life, additional Jeep warranty plans offer great options. That’s why CARCHEX offers protection plans that extend your warranty to keep you covered—no matter where you choose to take it.
Chrysler Jeep offers a list of quality warranty plans, from basic limited to powertrain to a few different corrosion coverages. These warranties will protect your Jeep from manufacturer or workmanship flaws in the first few years of ownership, with your Jeep’s powertrain system getting the longest factory coverage.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the warranty coverage offered by Jeep:
From the date of purchase, a Jeep Basic Limited Warranty (or Jeep bumper-to-bumper warranty) covers the cost of repairs throughout most of your vehicle. It also covers the cost of parts and labor due to defective materials, workmanship, or factory preparation. A basic warranty also covers roadside assistance for towing to a dealership during the first three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
The Basic Limited Warranty does not cover unwired headphones, tires, or parts and accessories added to customize a Jeep—only aspects of the Jeep that were included at the time of purchase or have been purchased through a Jeep dealer.
Outside of the Basic Limited Warranty, some Jeep parts have separate warranties. Jeep’s genuine Mopar products have different time and mileage limitations, depending on the part.
Note that some components (like brake pads and rotors, wiper blades, and clutch discs) are covered only for the first 12 months or 12,000 miles.
Jeep’s powertrain warranty covers the cost and labor of parts and components for your engine, transmission, axle, and transaxle parts for FWD, AWD, RWD, and 4×4 vehicles. These parts build your Jeep’s powerhouse and keep the vehicle running. It does not cover the following:
The powertrain and basic plans are the most well known, but it’s worth checking in on some of the other Jeep warranty plans that are available. Jeep offers an anti-corrosion warranty for all the vehicle’s panels, as well as a plan that covers only the outer panels. Both plans cover parts and labor needed to cover repairs or replacement of metal panels that form holes due to rust or corrosion.
In Jeep’s Federal Emissions Warranty, emissions parts are covered for three years or 36,000 miles under the basic limited warranty. Emissions parts covered under this plan include:
Both the basic limited warranty and the powertrain warranty are restrictive in two major ways:
The Jeep factory warranty does not cover the cost of repairing damage caused by poor or improper maintenance on your part. It also does not cover damage caused by the use of contaminated fuels, or by the use of fuels, oils, lubricants, or fluids other than those recommended in the Owner’s Manual. Routine maintenance is not covered in the basic limited warranty, as well.
One of the most important things you have to consider as a car owner is what to do when your Jeep factory warranty expires.
Factory warranties tend to last just long enough to cover minor repair costs and expenses that occur early in the life of your vehicle. Major repairs and replacements tend to pop up just after that 60,000-mile mark (right after the longest-lasting Jeep powertrain warranty expires).
Though Mopar used to offer a Jeep Lifetime Warranty with unlimited miles and terms, this is no longer an option. Jeep’s Maximum Care plan, however, which is an extended warranty, is capped at 8 years/125,000 miles.
According to Edmunds.com, at 70,000 miles, your car will probably need at least one expensive service visit (meaning over $1,000), and after 100,000 miles, dependability decreases significantly.
The major thing to remember is that after your warranty expires, you are responsible for covering costs.
Jeep brand vehicles recently ranked 23rd out of 28 brands in 2019 car reliability rankings. Driving a Jeep is a lot of fun, but that low ranking can’t be ignored. Chances are, you’re going to face some problems with your car and need protection. Consider this example of how much you might end up on the hook for to repair your Jeep:
Let’s dig a little deeper. Here are the most common Jeep Cherokee repairs Jeep Cherokee owners see:
|Lower ball joint||$392–$398|
|Ball joint replacement-upper||$450–$978|
|Suspension shock replacement||$493–$1,463|
Engine, transmission, and radiator replacements can be even more expensive. But for a fixed fee every month, you could be covered when you find yourself in the repair shop holding a heavy bill. How? With a Jeep extended warranty.
Many people realize the value of having an extended warranty on their Jeep, but most don’t know how to get the best deal. What’s more, how do you get a deal that fits your specific needs? Here are some tips that will help you make the right choice:
When you do your homework beforehand, you’re already halfway to enjoying savings.
Mopar offers extended coverage for new and pre-owned Jeep vehicles once the factory warranty expires. All plans are transferable for a $50 fee.
The two types of plans below cover vehicles from 60,000 miles to 125,000 miles, and deductibles range from $0 to $200 depending on coverage level.
If you want maximum coverage for your Jeep, then this is Mopar’s best extended Jeep warranty. The Maximum Care plan covers 5,000 components, from the powertrain to heated seats and navigation systems. Wear items, such as tires and brake pads, however, are not covered.
In addition to component coverage, Mopar also includes the following:
If you’re looking for some extra coverage, but you don’t need full protection, then an Added Care or Added Care Plus plan is sufficient. The Added Care Plus plan covers 800+ components, including the following:
Plans under this category also include peace of mind benefits, such as roadside assistance and trip-interruption coverage.
While coverage is basically the same, the contract terms for used or CPO vehicles is usually shorter. The model, year and condition of your car will dictate your terms, but you can expect coverage between one and five years or from 12,000 to unlimited miles. This is true for both Maximum Care and Added Care plans.
