Does anyone have experience fixing repairs with Fidelity warranty. Talked to dealer again questioning non-OEM and using. after market parts in repair. He said dealer always use new parts and OEM with Fidelity warranty. There is some confusion. I only have 11 days to decide whether to keep Fidelity or switch to Mopar.

Does anyone know apart from Mopar, original Alfa Romeo OEM warranty.... (another dealer was mentioning this, if you want OEM parts)?
Considering the aftermarket on the car in non existent I wouldn’t worry about switching. They not gonna throw an aftermarket differential in. Or after market trans, fuel pump etc. You have limited part choices. 99.9% are going to be OEM on a QV.

Thank you for replies.

This is what I see under Fidelity warranty website. This is for Platinum Coverage. I also took brakes, battery, locks, and tires coverage warranty. What is missing from Platinum coverage, is there any other warranty that covers?

Lot of confusion here on term of lease. Original warranty from date in service. You can extend that warranty during the first 36 months and the extension will be from the original in service date. After 36 mos the Mopar warranty will run from the date of purchase of the warranty.

My QV is a 2018. I original warranty is up Feb. 28th, 2023. I have 15.3K miles in almost 3 years of ownership (bought a Alfa fleet car with 265 miles in 1/2019) so I put about 5K miles per year. So in 8 years or 2027 I will have 40K mile estimated. I know the OEM parts are ultra expensive and it makes sense to get a Mopar extended warranty but which warranty makes sense base on my usage? Just wondering if anybody is in the same boat and what path was chosen and why.

I would get the max warranty and get the highest number of years with the lowest mileage based on your usage

I am in the same boat...2018 QV with 9600 miles so far and warranty ends in 12/22. No issues so far so wondering if and which (how much) warranty makes sense.

Definitely IF
You should get a warranty for the piece of mind

As to which, well the I would suggest the max care, and then pick the miles/years that match your usage then buy whichever fits your budget.

Plus if you sell the car, then you can sell the warranty

Holy heck. Just got Ziegler quotes for '19 QV. 8/125:
Deductible:
$ 0: $12,465.00
$100: $ 8,490.00
$200: $ 6,975.00

What do they know that we don't? Now that FCA has several years worth of actual data on warranty claims, I suppose this should't come as a surprise. It's the actuarial equivalent of Margo Channing saying "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night"

Or does it also reflect the reality that in the last few years folks simply aren't turning in leases and replacing cars as often as they used to so there's going to be increased claims AND a higher demand for extended warranties -- why not charge as much as they can, while they can?

You waited until the last minute so it's going to cost a lot. I bought mine under 12k Mike's it was the 7 year 80k for $4100. It's expensive but just think if you threw a rod or need a differential replacement the warranty would be paid for hand over fist.

This is correct. Currently I see more aftermarket coming but at this point it will be suspension parts and filters. Some misc. parts will be available but it will be mostly OEM.

You can just say you have 25k miles. They don’t check.

Under 1k should be the lowest cost but these prices seem in line. I think I paid 4200 for 200 ded and an extra 3/35k but this was at 22k

yeah, the Fidelity Platinum seems the way to go. Had it on an Audi S8 and was worth its weight in gold to me, AND the subsequent owner of the car.

Try calling Mopar directly though. I bought my car warranty from clay Robbins because he was the cheapest until I called Mopar to ask about my wheel warranty and turns out you can buy directly from them and they sell at cost.
