If you recently bought a new car, particularly a Chrysler model, the last thing you’re likely thinking of is what repairs need to be done. Still, the brand’s extended warranty plans are genuinely one of the first things to consider after a new purchase.
What Does Chrysler Extended Warranty Entail?
The extended warranty of the Chrysler brand, otherwise dubbed as a vehicle service contract, is an optional plan one can obtain to help with the payment for certain repairs that they might need. New Chrysler vehicles bring along a new car warranty, and when it hits its expiration date, an extended warranty occurs where the factory coverage ceases.
The extended warranty plans are sold and governed by Mopar, Chrysler’s automotive parts and accessories division. These warranties are involved in all brands of Stellantis: Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo.
Extended Warranty Plans
Most people prefer to have more coverage than the basic factory warranty. For this reason, Moper offers two options for Chrysler’s extended warranty for reasonably new models, reaching the manufacturer’s expiration date: Maximum Care and Added Care Plus.
Mopar always says, “If it’s mechanical, it’s covered,” When referring to Chrysler’s extended warranty. Over 5000 mechanical components are protected, allowing consumers access to different terms and deductibles. It guarantees that which follows:
- Coverage up to 8 years/125,000 miles
- Comprehensive coverage for over 5,000 critical components
- Certified, factory-trained, expert technicians
- $200, $100, or $0 deductible
- Service at dealerships throughout the U.S.
- Some of the assets involved with the Maximum Care plan are car rental and towing allowance, roadside assistance, key fob repair/replacement, and trip interruption protection.
This contract can provide more protection for your brakes, engine, and other components when your factory’s warranty expires.
New vehicles backed by their original factory 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty Can still get the maximum care coverage plan within three years/36,000 miles of the vehicle’s in-service date.
Should your Chrysler vehicle have had a previous owner, there is also a pre-owned coverage from Mopar. After examining the car, one can obtain protection reigning ten years before the current model year. Coverage is varied based on the present warranty.
Added Care Plus
One can lengthen the coverage of their powertrain or as many as 800 significant components using Mopar’s Added Care Plus plan, available with several different terms and deductibles. The brand’s extended warranty advantages include a car rental allowance, towing, roadside assistance, and trip interruption coverage.
New vehicles backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile or more extended powertrain warranty are qualified to purchase this coverage within three years/36,000 miles of the car’s in-service date. For pre-owned models, Added Care Plus coverage scales from 1 to 5 years, with mileage spanning 12,000, 15,000, or unlimited miles.
Mopar provides various term options for Added Care Plus warranty coverage:
- 60,000 miles
- 75,000 miles
- 85,000 miles
- 100,000 miles
- 125,000 miles
- 150,000 miles
Depending on your plan, deductibles can span from $200, $100, or $0 of the total cost of backed component repairs. Advantages include towing and roadside assistance, trip interruption protection, key fob repair/replacement, car rental allowance, and transfer of warranty ownership (that requires a fee). It’s also worth noting that not all these plans are transferable.
