Stick with the Chrysler extended warranties. Numerous others come and go, and can leave you with nothing but a piece of paper.

Agree 1000% !! Back in 2001 I bought a new Chevy Monte Carlo SS Pace Car edition. I told the salesman I wanted the best warranty GM offered. I paid $2000 for it and went on my way. Very stupidly I didn't look at the papers to see it was a third party warranty. Guess what, 3 years later they are out of business and I have no warranty. That was and will be my last GM vehicle. What's the old saying? Screw me once.... Previously I was a Chevy guy and had bought a bunch of them over the years....

Best advice I can offer is check with the techs where you will have your car worked on and which will probably be involved with any warranty claims made to see what experience they have had with this extended warranty coverage company.


Even the best companies put up a bit of a fight to avoid paying a claim, seeking any reason to deny the claim.


Be sure you also read what you have to do to keep the coverage in effect. What service schedule, inspection schedule, mileage or usage limitations there might be.

A Hemi tick issue may not be covered. Just a noise with no other untoward engine behavior, no CEL, the determination could be there is no problem, that the noise is "normal".

I thought I read here recently that FCA was going to stop with the Lifetime warranties. Is that still the case?

I think your correct. While looking for MVP plans I didnt see any unlimited plain. only unlimited miles but with a set years.

I dont know of any pre-existing problem that my vehicle has. remember a ticking noise is not a existing problem.
