My 3 yr lease was coming to an end and the buyout was 48k. With only 6k miles and no issues it was a no brainer to buy it. That was my original plan anyway. I guess now it’s time to shop for the longest extended warranty As mileage shouldnt be an issue. My last dealer service is July and my 3 yr factory runs out August 17th. Any of you warranty buyers have a good recommendation? Or anything else I need to be thinking about?
Thanks

How do you like those Continental tires speaking of insurance?

Excellent tires for all types of driving other than the track. Great in all temperatures and road conditions. I put the OEM PZeros on the rear in the summer for the occasional cookout.

If you want a factory extended warranty, you have to implement it before your 3yr 36K runs out. I just got one for my Demon from Nichole Hawkins at moparservicecontract.com . There have been running a special on extended contracts and she beat the other quotes I had gotten. Email her at [email protected]

That's not bad. What deductible did you get,because that will play a big factor in price. I was at $2005 7/60 $200 Ded

The area you live in may be a factor also, plus you have 1 more year than I do.
I asked her to quote your plan for comparison but NY may be higher. Seems like all are the same price so far. Thanks

You just want to make sure it’s an FCA backed warranty. All other third party plans are a rip-off IMO.
Second that. When I bought my 03 Silverado I added the Xwarranty. The salesman tried really hard to get me to buy the third party warranty, it was about 35% cheaper, but I went for the GM. Two years later, the 3rd party was defunct.

I had xwarr's on my Silverado and GTO, never made any use of them, unlikely that I would ever buy another. After 3y, you are probably past infant mortality. You are the only owner and treated it like your precious puppy. Xwarr's don't help much on the minor stuff considering the deductable, you only really need it for the big things. Now, what are those "big" things? Maybe the SC? Brand new from mopardiscounts.com they are $4213.


Xwarr's are insurance, they reduce risk for a price and they make a substantial profit on it, which is why many large companies choose to "self insure". If you are a person that does not have the time or skills to analyze the situation and are not willing to put forth the effort to seek the economical solution to a problem, then the xwarr might be a good option. But if you have the time and skills to pinpoint the problem, order parts from discount.com, and patience to do it yourself or have a local tech do it, you are waaay better off without xwarr.

Simply a decision, it is worth it for you.

Also, if you mod, there is no sense in an xwarr.

I'll give an example of why this is a good Idea. A friend of mine that had a T/A down in Texas had a problem with Uconnect/radio. He took in to the dealer and they told him it needed to be replaced. If I remember correctly they told him that unit was $2300. He had a factory backed extended warranty and paid his $200 deductible out the door. The electronics on these cars is the reason why I bought the ex warranty.
