extended warranty ??????
 
Hey ..

Just got my 2010 ram .......has 4000 miles on it ......5/100000 powertrain warranty..
Does the extended warranty void the 100000 mile powertrain warranty..

Also sre the extended warranties really necessary????? I know its piece of mind and all.....I probably will keep this truck for 4 or 5 years I got a great deal on it ........it was a demo with 3700 miles on it.....

Thanks

5/100000? I haven't heard of that one yet. The extended warranty won't void your factory warranty. Is the extended offered through a different company than Chrysler? Will it extend your bumper to bumper coverage or just the powertrain?

its got a 3 yr 36,000 bumper to bumper....and a 5 year powertrian warranty from the factory.......will extending the btb warranty void the powertrain one??

The extended warranty does not void the factory warranty. Most run parallel to the factory warranty, then cover certain systems beyond the basic warranty.

A "MaxCare" warranty from Chrysler Service Contracts covers a LOT of systems and parts not covered by other aftermarket warrantys.

Yeah, they pay off. A transmission, differential or engine rebuild or replacement is a lot more expensive than the premium you pay for the warranty.

There are a lot of offerings out there. Read them all carefully to determine what they cover and, more importantly, what they DO NOT cover and what the deductible is.

Personally, I'd avoid aftermarket warranty companies. I've seen too many repairs made with questionable parts.

yeah ...understood guys........sorry for the confusion...I was thinking about one of t he chrysler service contracts........

I will invest ...maybe the 5/70000 mile one 50 deductable..

thanks

If it extends your bumper to bumper, it might be worthwhile. Don't be afraid to haggle on the price, it might pay off.

I haggled on mine. The dealer wanted twice what I would have paid online at Chrysler Service Contracts. Showed the dealer the premium and he gave in...LOL

Mine did too. Got the Max Care 7yr 100,000 mile for $1405, started at $2995. As it's transferable, if I have to sell it, the Max care should make that easier, and probably get more.

I had a similar expierence and got a great deal on a 7/100 warranty back in 07. i haggled and believe i paid like 1000 bucks for it, but do have a $100 deductable. But what doesnt cost a 100 bucks now days especially on a vehicle!
