    I just bough a new 2019 Jeep Cherokee from local dealer he said he could offer me at lifetime wareenty through Chrysler and finance it with car , I paid 4500 for it I have read online that it should be much cheaper that dealers can jack up price , I have a week to cancel it with no penalty I understand on nov 30 they stopped selling them I want to keep warranty but if I paid to much I feel ripped off what should I do ? Please advise thanks Larry Handley

    My 2006 Pacifica has the Lifetime Maxicare and has 262,000 with all servicing done at dealer (except for a few minor cosmetic items and non-covered i.e. brakes). It has come to the end needing 2 cylinders, fuel injectors, front motor mount and a catalytic convertor (not covered). (Since I recently put new tires, I am having my mechanic sell it out by parts.) Looking for a replacement, we were thinking of a Jeep. But, now that the lifetime extended warranty is no longer available, we won’t necessarily be true to Chrysler. The car will be driven about 30,000 a year- freeway and about town. Any recommendations? BTW – we had a 2006 Chrysler 300 that was driven well over 300,000 (accident took it away) and we also currently have a 2012 Chrysler 300 with 152,000. Thanks!

    Disappointed that they killed the lifetime warranty… I was planning to buy my wife a 124 Spider in January, and we were looking at the 124, specifically because of the available lifetime warranty (I already have the lifetime on my ’16 JGC Summit). Unfortunately for FCA, the 124 wasn’t my wife’s first (or second) choice, but she was willing to forego #1 and #2, in order to get the lifetime warranty… I guess we will be re-looking at her other choices after all.

    “One thing that could help keep it going, is a sales surge to demonstrate pent-up demand. So if you think the industry should have products like this (ahem), and you have a FCA car, go to the finance department at your dealer and ask for a quote.”

    Not likely to make any difference now, after the fact, and FCA was nice and quiet about doing it so there wouldn’t be a surge or public outcry before it happened. Wish I had known this was happening before 11/30, the two Jeeps in my garage would be out there a lot longer than they now will be.

    Certainly a disappointment with me as FCA’s track record, or that of Chrysler isn’t that great with vehicle/component life expectancy.

    I have three Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicles now and when it comes time to replace them will go with another brand, possibly Ford and Land Rover which I would prefer to anything FCA sells.

    The Lifetime Unlimited Max warranty was the selling point which cost right around $3000 per vehicle. And for the poor soul who paid $4500, never trust a card dealer ! If their lips are moving, they are telling you lies for sure !
