Chrysler bumper-to-bumper factory warranty is 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
The engine factory warranty is 5 years or 60,000 miles, extending 2 years after the bumper-to-bumper warranty expires.
The average length of ownership and the most common car loan term is 6 years. Chrysler offers three options for owners who want to finance extended warranties to avoid unexpected cost during the second half of their car loan: Maximum Care, Added Care Plus, and Powertrain.
What do the Chrysler Factory Warranty Options cover?
Chrysler Max Care is a bumper-to-bumper, factory-backed, repair plan that pays the cost of parts and labor for breakdowns on the entire vehicle including all electrical and mechanical components except a few items disclosed on their exclusionary list.
Max Care includes 5000+ components coverage.
Exclusions | What is not covered
Added Care Plus
Chrysler Added Care Plus is the second best plan with 800+ components coverage.
It includes the engine, transmission, RWD, FWD, AWD, steering, cooling, heating, shocks, struts, rear entertainment system, sunroof, instrument panel, cruise control, and more.
Not a bad choice for a base model Chrysler 300, but for a fully loaded Pacifica the Maximum Care is worth the additional cost.
The Chrysler Pacifica has more mechanisms than other vehicles and therefore a greater return on investment from a bumper-to-bumper plan like Maximum Care, especially considering it takes the beating of growing families and children.
Max Care coverage includes power sliding doors, power liftgate, stow-and-go seats, navigation, entertainment, vacuum, three row climate system, and all the other unique features of the Pacifica.
Engine coverage. Not worth the cost unless the price is rock bottom. Spend the money on a better plan or pass if this is the only option.
How much is the repair copay?
Chrysler has three options of deductible copay: $0, $100, $200.
The $0 copay option looks like the best option until the difference in upfront cost is calculated.
The $100 copay plan is $500 less to purchase than the $0 plan, but only $225 more upfront than the $200 copay plan.
Therefore, the F&I Tools Review finds the Chrysler Maximum Care Factory Warranty extension with $100 deductible the best bang for the buck!
