I have had several members recommend an extended warranty for my '18 QV I just purchased.

Currently, I do not drive to work, only drive for 'pleasure' and I will not drive in winter. Also, I have a manufacturer's warranty that lasts until the end of this year.

Should I get an extended warranty now? Should I wait until my manufacturer's expires? Or, should I get it at all?

Last question first — yes.

No reason to wait. Get a MOPAR MaxCare plan from one of the several on line sources recommended over and over on the forum. Lots of options regarding mileage/term combinations and deductibles.

I agree with the above. The extended warranty from MOPAR is a no brainer. Do it now and shop it for pricing. Just search this forum and you will find recommendations for who to call.

It will be more than the 2K quoted- I think that member had a Ti. My QV was 2400 for an additional 3 years, so a 7/80

Yes to a warranty unless you hate going to dealers and want to work on the car yourself. Buy now as it will be cheaper compared to waiting.

Also if you got decide to sell, you can either sell warranty and increase total sale price or you can prorate warranty. Win win

My MaxCare extended warranty even covers the sun roof and all the electronics. Only need to have one of those babies fail and it's paid for itself. Very cheap peace of mind over my expected long term ownership.

I just got a quote from MaxCare for my 2021 Giulia Ti with 6,000 miles.

No powertrain coverage (I have 10 year powertrain warranty though the dealership so no big deal.) No sunroof motor coverage. 5 years or 75,000 miles for a mere $7,066 from date of purchase.

So basically 7 grand for a 2 year policy. No thanks. Lol

Chrysler Factory Plans is quoting 8 years (5 beyond existing factory warranty) 60k miles (plenty) for $1925. Quite the difference. Thanks!
Glad you found a better price. That’s +4 yrs to the factory warranty which is 4yrs/50k. Pretty sure the extended warranty 8 year clock starts at the original in service date of the car.


”This Plan provides coverage up to 8 years or 60,000 miles (whichever occurs first) from the Vehicle’s original in-service date. The original in-service date begins when the Vehicle is sold, which is the same as the manufacturer’s warranty date. THE 8 YEAR PLAN PERIOD AND 60,000 MILEAGE LIMITATION INCLUDES TIME COVERAGE UNDER AND MILEAGE TRAVELED WITHIN THE MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY PERIOD.”

Related question- my car is going to be stored and not operated in my garage for 6 months soon. Is there any reason why I should not wait until that time period passes before purchasing an extended warranty?
