How Exactly Do These Extended Warranties Work?
It can be complicated and confusing to understand but we are here to make it a little easier...
First thing is you drive off the lot with a manufacturer's warranty that gives you bumper-to-bumper coverage for either three years from your in-service date or 36,000 miles of coverage. So why do we suggest you buy your extended warranty around that time? It's pretty simple and it comes down to cost! The more time and miles you put on your vehicle which then depreciates your vehicle the more the extended warranty will cost. So when you buy the coverage now for your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram or Fiat vehicle you won't need it until you hit 36,000 miles or that three mark but that peace of mind that it is there and you got it for the best price possible is nice!
Let's say you decide to wait until you are closer to that manufacturer's warranty expiring or you purchase a vehicle that has more time and miles but is still under coverage. You can still extend your warranty with a new protection plan up to eight years of coverage but it's important to note that is from your in-service date and not at the time you purchase the protection plan which is another reason why the sooner you buy your coverage the better. These new plans can also cover up to 125,000 miles. We also offer an unlimited mile protection plan which did replace our lifetime warranties, these plans have a seven year max but not all vehicles qualify for this coverage so let us help you figure out if yours does. These plans still give you that same great coverage of Maximum Care, Added Care Plus or Powertrain Care.
What if you decide to let your manufacturer's warranty expire without extending it or you buy a used car outside of that time frame or miles? That's okay we can still help you with our pre-owned warranty coverage which still has those same great warranty plans we mentioned above but they work slightly different on the time and mileage. These plans do go from your mileage at the time of purchase meaning if you purchase a used extended warranty you will get additional miles on what you already have. These plans range from one year and 12,000 miles of coverage to five years and 75,000 miles of coverage. These plans do also require and inspection but it can be an easy process.
