Why Get an Extended Warranty with Your Chrysler Jeep Dealer?

Whenever you purchase a new Chrysler or Jeep vehicle from our Chrysler and Jeep dealership in Baltimore, you have the option to add different types of extended warranties. While some people might say they do not need the added protection these warranties provide, these programs have evolved and changed over the years to provide a variety of different options to the point they can be customized to each buyer.

To help you decide if an extended warranty is right for you, consider the following points:

  1. Vehicle finance periods are longer today.
  2. In the past, you could only finance a vehicle for up to 60 months (5 years), so if you did not drive a lot, most original new car warranties were perfectly fine, so you may have forgone an extended warranty. However, today, you can finance vehicles for longer periods. Some programs have 100-month repayment options!

    With these longer finance periods, your new car warranty will probably run out long before the vehicle is paid off. The last thing anyone wants is a costly car repair on top of their monthly loan payment. Adding extended warranty protection for the length of your loan is a good idea.

  3. With new technologies come more expensive repairs.
  4. Rear backup cameras, lane departure sensors, forward collision prevention, and other advanced safety technologies are fairly new. Not to mention, touchscreen infotainment systems are more powerful than they were five or ten years ago. If something goes wrong and your Chrysler or Jeep is out of warranty, having the peace of mind of knowing an extended warranty will cover the costs of technology repairs is well worth getting protection.

  5. Warranties can be tailored and customized to your needs.
  6. Want to extend bumper-to-bumper coverage but not necessary powertrain coverage? No problem. Want to add in an appearance protection plan or pre-paid maintenance? You can. Essentially, you are free to pick and choose which types of extended coverage and add-on protection you want, along with pre-paid maintenance plans.

  7. The costs for extended coverages can be financed at the time of purchase.
  8. You don’t have to come up with one lump sum to pay for extended warranties if you purchase them at the same time as you purchase your new Chrysler or Jeep from our Chrysler and Jeep dealership. That’s right—the costs for your extended warranty protection can be added to your vehicle loan and broken down into the same number of monthly payments!

  9. All paperwork is completed by our dealership.
  10. If you get extended warranty coverage at the time of purchase, we will take care of filling out all the paperwork for you. You don’t have to guess what to put where, and you just need to review, read, and sign the form after we fill it out.

Tips for Purchasing an Extended Warranty
Now that you can see the benefits gained with extended warranty protection, we want to provide you with a few tips to ensure you get the right coverage and protection.

  • Take the time to review your new car warranty and coverage period. Extended warranties kick in once the new car protection ends. Knowing when this is can help you decide how long you want added protection.

Review a list of major repair costs for the vehicle. Our Chrysler and Jeep dealer’s service department can provide you a list of what repair costs are to replace the onboard computer, infotainment system, and other major systems. Once you see how much these can be, you will want to make sure to include coverage for these items.

  • Read the fine print. There are different deductibles on some plans and others that have no deductibles, like your car insurance. Additionally, certain plans only provide protection for specific systems, so it is your responsibility to make sure what you want to be covered is included.
  • Do not be afraid to ask questions. Your sales associate and the entire staff at our dealership is here to answer your questions. If you are not sure if something is covered, ask. If you already know what coverage you want but are not sure which plan to choose, ask. We will gladly help you choose the right plan that suits your needs and answer all of your questions.
