    So, I'm usually never an extended warranty kind of guy; I've purchased one ONCE for my 2004 SRT-4 Neon and never really used it.

    With the Hellcat, I'm wondering if it is worth considering due to the extreme power levels and cost of a potential repair.

    This question is especially directed towards Canadian members as our warranty is up after only 3 short years; do you/will you purchase an extended warranty from your dealer when you purchase your car?

    If so, would you buy the regular one (powertrain) or the extra one that covers rental cars, oil changes, etc?

    I'm just wondering because the cost of this plan is something like $4500+ !!! Wouldn't it be better to just take your chances and quietly set aside a "Hellcat repair fund" ?

    I think the only option we have in Canada is to extend the craptacular 3 year warranty to 5 years (so you're paying for 2 additional years)

    Mileage I think goes from 3 year 60,000 KM to 5 year 100,000 KM (60,000ish miles)

    Bought seven year 60K plus tires and rim cover $1755 total.
    Only drawback...tire/rim/wheel covers 1500 max per year which might cover most of one totaled tire/ wheel but would cover a couple of tires and sensors remounted and balanced.

    I did not go for extra coverage other then road hazard and gap.. those 2-5 grand extras will buy a good bit of repairs.. the car's new , seems well made, and I don't plan on beating the HELL out of it

    Way different options (meaning a lot more, and cheaper as well) in the US versus Canada. We don't have many options available up here.

    It depends on how long you keep the car, if its a good idea.

    Just returned from local (Toronto) dealer looking for pricing on extended warranty and responsible person said NO EXTENDED WARRANTY AVAILABLE on
    the Hellcat. He knew right away as he had tried, he said, for other Hellcat purchasers to get one but not yet priced ( in Canada ? ) for Hellcat.

    Business manager at dealer where I bought car tried in earnest to sell me one a month ago when I bought the car, but maybe he was looking at SRT pricing only?

    You have one? On paper? With your VIN?

    Maybe the latest guy out to lunch, but I never met someone at a dealership that didn't want to sell me something. (Real or imaginary)

    Have mine ( US ) in writing and on my dealers computer.
    Purchased when I bought the car but not from my dealer, from Chryslerwarrantydirect.com
    Doubt they can do Canada.

    Got quoted $4800 for 5 yr / 100000 km
    from a distant dealer. Spoke to a Hellcat Charger owner at a meet and greet who paid $2400 for same warranty at time of delivery (basically dealer cost)

    Informed the guy who said there was indeed extended warranty available
    So he was going to check and get back to me -no action in several weeks .

    Informed his manager of lack of knowledge / interest when I went there to order a 2015 Challenger R/T as daily driver / winter beater.
    Ended up with saving $3000 + ordering the R/T elsewhere. Should be able to her good price on Hellcat warranty at
    time of R/T delivery
    Will buy it if I can get it for $3000 -$3200
