Default Upgraded Warranty

Question for Canadian members on purchasing extended warranty. I just ordered a 2014 Laramie Ecodiesel. I declined the extended warranty from the dealership for a couple of reasons:

1) I hate the final "meet" the finance person and buy all these wonderful things process. She started into her pitch - about a minute in I said look - I am not buying anything else...period.

2) From what I understand I can probably purchase an extended warranty - up to 7 years - at a better price after the fact.

Anyone done this - and know where I should look? Also what would you recommend? I am thinking 7 years, etc. full coverage.

I regret buying the paint/rust protection.
But I did go for the 7 year 160k warranty. I never thought of negotiating on the price of the warranty - I was too hyped to be getting a brand new vehicle.
Next time, I am going to haggle until the cows come home to make sure I get the best deal I can get.

Can you share what you paid for the 7/160K? That is the warranty I would probably buy.

I tried to purchase the extended warranty last year on the day of purchase. Paid cash for my truck, no financing and they wanted $5,500 for the above mentioned plan.
Truck had NO miles and hadn't left the lot yet......
For that kinda money they can keep their warranty!!!!
Doesn't say much in fiats faith in their products, if they believed in them the cost would be less IMHO
They must be expecting huge claims down the road.....
My local dealer says 60% of their work is warranty related

We always get hosed. There is a US site that offers Chrysler warranties. I did a quote on it, for a 7 year 160 full warranty - $1900.00. Bought I can't buy it because I am in Canada.

I couldn't agree more with you. We pay more and get less, free trade my ASS!
When I bought my 09 the dealer was adamant the lifetime power train warranty wasn't AVALIABLE in Canada .....
Why not? Same product.......

So no one here has haggled on the warranty yet? I turned it down the first time when buying and said I'd think about it while waiting for my truck to be built... I do want to get it because I plan to hold onto my truck for at least 7 years but the asking price is crazy.

So here is what I was quoted (Ontario). Have not bought anything yet - hopefully people will post what they paid.

5 years or 100000 kms. $1955.00
6 years or 120000 kms. $2870.00
7 years or 160000 kms. $4045.00
plus taxes, of course.

I think mine was 4700 taxes in for the 7y/160k
I'm hoping it ends up being worth it... It is sorta, just for the piece of mind... But so far, no major issues.
