For anyone here who searches for extended warranty reviews for a new or currently owned vehicle I can add another good review for these people here. My dealer offered a portfolio warranty 7yr/75,000 miles for $2700. Wasn’t aware of the online warranty game. Canceled for a full refund and got a 8yr/100,000 mile warranty for $1900 flat! Mopar max care plan. My dealer didn’t even offer a mopar plan, so I am guesing that they make good money on 3rd party warranty’s. The look on the financial managers face when I told him this was very funny as he could barely look at me. Wish I could have told the poor guy signing papers in the office while I waited outside to cancel. Anyone else here go through these guys?

Yep, I went through them back in 2014 and am very happy with the purchase (Just got a new engine!). I bought another FCA vehicle and was surprised the dealer didn't offer the factory backed warranty. They had some third party crap that I laughed at. I guess it's a dealer by dealer choice which to offer.

I got warranty thru CarShield right after I left the dealer (Dave Smith Motors in Idaho) and this was back in early 2021. They quoted me over 4k I do believe. My CarShield warranty is for 4 year/75K miles bumper to bumper coverage with $100 deductible, cost me $2,200. I did ended up using it for a tow to a dealer when my transmission went out and then it ended up needing to be replaced all together, only had to pay the $100 deductible for it. Also includes roadside assistance.

Zeigler is okay but others dealers have had lower prices...

Yeah, best thing is on buying day have your research done ahead of time so when you get into the finance office you can produce a piece of paper with a quote and ask them to match. From what I've read around here, most dealers will and that way you can finance it into a loan if you so choose (I personally think rolling it into the loan and most auto loans in general are a bad idea but that's an argument for another day).

Yep, Granger is beating Zeigler by a few hundred dollars right now, for the Mopar ext coverage. But I'm glad to hear you didn't let the dealer rip you off.

FYI - The dealer net, which is the cost of the service contract to the dealer, is usually 50% of the retail at most dealers. There is lots of wiggle room in these things.

I can’t find this granger to see the difference? From what I initially had I am still more than happy though.

They are a CDJR dealer near Des Moines, IA. I would guess you could send an email to either of the folks listed under the Service Contracts tab to get a quote.
