Default Is the lifetime extended warranty for me?

Hey all

New member here and a new owner of a 2014 ram 1500 bighorn.
My previous truck was 05 tacoma. I had it for close to 10 years and not a major repair had to be done to it.

The dealership the offered the lifetime warranty for $3000. I keep my vehicles mmend any as long as possible. How has the quality of dodge in the recent years? Did anyone purchase it at a lower price? I would like to avoid the any costly repair bills. would anyone recommend another type of extended warranty?

I got a quote from these guys [Zeigler] that was about $700 cheaper than the Mopar extended warranty that my dealer is pushing. Where you and the dealership that serviced your truck satisfied with the Zeigler program? They told me that with the $100 copay you will never pay more than that for any one visit no matter how much work is done. Is that your experience?

I was very happy with it, 100 dollar deductible (yes if you use one visit for multiple things only 100 dollar deductible, and it includes rental, and it is a MOPAR extended warranty, not a 3rd party. My dealer never gave me an issue with it, again it is a factory warranty I just did not buy it from their dealership (did not buy my truck from them either.
They even got the rental lined up when needed.

It should it is a factory warranty, if the one your dealer is pushing is a factory one, it is the same warranty if not , this is a better one..

Taken directly from Ziegler's website.

"You don't need to pay full retail for factory-backed protection. Our internet sales model offers extended auto warranties (service contracts) at highly discounted pricing. This is the same plan that your local dealership may have offered you at a much higher price. These are real Chrysler Service Contracts and are honored at all Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealerships in the United States, Canada and Mexico."

Based on your question...yes it's for you and yes that site is legit. Show your dealer the site, tell them to match or you'll buy from the site. It's currently $2185 with $100 deductible ($815 less than what you were quoted by your dealer). I have this warranty (Chrysler Lifetime Maxcare) on both my current 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and my 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie. I showed that site's quote to both dealerships I purchased my vehicles from and they matched on the spot no questions asked.

I paid just over a grand for mine 3 weeks ago. I passed on it when he offered it at $2,400. After going through all the paperwork he came back and offered it for less than half of that. Said something about how Chrysler was going to cancel this program and he would give it to me at his employee price, blah, blah, blah. Couldn't pass that up.
