    I had the option to extend factory warranty from 3 yr 60 k to 7 yr 115k cost was 4800 thought it was reasonable considering a touch screen replacement is that much

    I did buy an extended 6/60 plan using this link through Zeigler. Ligit and over $1000 less than my dealer wanted to charge for the same. No sales tax and used a promo code of "GREGH" to get $75 extra discount.

    No experience with Chrysler yet. But I never believed until I needed the last time. I bought the Lexus extended warranty ($1200) and all my friends and my brother told me that you just burned $1200.

    After 2 years, I noticed that my A/C is not working. They put the dye to find the root cause and later on found the whole system needs to be replaced and made $4000 bill (LOL) -- I'm a believer now...

    Extended waranty was less than the gas guzzler tax. For a 70K+ automobile, I would say it's cheap insurance. No part on this cat is cheap to purchase.

    I purchased the 7 year 50 K for $1,995.00 the max care one. Figured I would not put 50K miles on in 7 years since we only have about 6 months of good weather to drive. They started at $3,500.00

    Frank castle I would advise against getting any aftermarket warranty on your hellcat. There is specific language in the contract that state certain things are not covered as any contract would be. You have to be careful language of the contract, and if you have to go that far honestly it's not worth your time. A Chrysler max care or added care what a $100 deductible is the way to go
    A supercharger and a radio on these cars is very expensive. I am not telling you these cars are not well-built but a service contract gives you the added security. But you have protection in case something happens

    Check the link/website factory plans.com and shop the price that you're getting from the dealership. This is a guy who owns a Chrysler dealership that sells contract at cost to anybody in the country

    Yes, these are Chrysler MaxCare plans. You do not have to buy your extended waranty at the dealership you purchase your car at, nor do you have to purchase at the time your car is brand new. It gets a little more expensive as the car ages but you have at least 4 years and 48K miles to make the decission. Zeigler is a nation wide dealer/seller and sells the extended factory plans lower because they do volume. They are 100% legitamate.
