Interested in keeping your Chrysler repair costs down? Purchasing a Chrysler extended warranty is one way to offset expensive repair bills once your factory warranty expires.

CARCHEX protects your vehicle and bank account with our flexible protection plans. Read on to learn more about a Chrysler extended warranty and your options for coverage.

What Is a Chrysler Extended Warranty?

Extended warranties are vehicle protection plans that begin after your factory warranty ends. The Chrysler extended warranty comes through Mopar, which is the parts, customer care, and service component of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). These warranties are available for all FCA brands—Chrysler, DodgeJeep, Ram, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo. This is noted as FCA US LLC in your Chrysler extended warranty.

What’s Included in a Chrysler Factory Warranty?

When you purchase a new Chrysler from the dealership, you also drive away with a manufacturer warranty. Here’s what’s covered in your Chrysler factory warranty:

Chrysler Warranty


3-Year/36,000-Mile Chrysler Basic Limited Warranty

  • This is a Chrysler bumper-to-bumper warranty that provides comprehensive coverage for your vehicle.
  • Your vehicle is towed to the nearest FCA dealership for free in the case of a breakdown.
  • This Mopar warranty covers the cost of repairing or replacing defects from workmanship or materials.

5-Year/60,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty

  • This powertrain warranty covers your transmission, engine, and related parts.
  • Chrysler provides free towing to the nearest dealership.
  • This warranty is transferable to new owners if the transaction happens before the coverage period ends.

5-Year/60,000-mile Roadside Assistance Services

  • Roadside assistance includes tire replacement, gas delivery, towing, and more.

Mopar Parts and Accessories Limited Warranty

  • Many of the Mopar parts have different warranty periods and limitations, including on batteries, water pumps, and catalytic converters. Make sure to read your specific warranty carefully so you know what to expect.

Anti-Corrosion Perforation Limited Warranty

  • This warranty protects you from paying for repairs if the body sheet metal panels rust through and develop holes.
  • All panels are covered for three years or unlimited miles, and outer panels are covered for five years or unlimited miles.

Federal Emissions Warranty

  • This legally required warranty covers most emissions parts for two years or 24,000 miles.

  • California emissions standard warranties are included if you live in a state that adheres to those laws.

High Voltage Battery Limited Warranty

  • Cars in states that adopt California regulations have a battery warranty for 10 years or 150,000 miles.
  • Cars in all other states are covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles.

Additionally, you can choose to purchase a Chrysler extended warranty through Mopar on your new vehicle.

Chrysler Extended Warranty Coverage: Mopar Vehicle Protection Plans

Mopar Vehicle Protection complements your current coverage and provides mechanical coverage after your original warranty expires. The two warranty plan options are Maximum Care℠ and Added Care Plus℠.

Maximum Care

FCA’s highest level of Chrysler extended coverage, Maximum Care, protects more than 5,000 components beyond your warranty. It can last for up to eight years or 150,000 miles and offers roadside assistance, car rental allowance, towing services, trip interruption benefits, and key fob repair or replacement.

If your vehicle is also covered with the five-year or 60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, you are eligible within three years or 36,000 miles from the vehicle’s in-service date. That means you need to decide whether to purchase the plan while your Chrysler is still under its bumper-to-bumper warranty.


  • Regular maintenance services
  • Catalytic converter
  • Glass, plastic lenses, and lightbulbs
  • Wear and tear items, including tires, brake pads, wipers, and more
  • Particulate filter
  • Snowplows, winches, and trailer hitches
  • Body and paint items

Added Care Plus

This Chrysler extended warranty plan adds coverage on more than 800 powertrain and major components with factory-backed protection. Chrysler vehicle owners choose the terms: between five and eight years and from 60,000 up to 150,000 miles. You can also pick your deductible, based on the Chrysler extended warranty plan you select.

Eligibility for Mopar’s Added Care Plus plan is the same as for the Maximum Care plan.


  • $0, $100, or $200 deductible
  • $600 key fob repair or replacement coverage
  • $45 first day rental allowance
  • $1,000 trip interruption protection
  • $100 towing allowance/roadside assistance
  • $45 per day car rental allowance (up to $225)
  • Transfer policy ($50 fee)

Should I Consider a Chrysler Extended Warranty?

There are plenty of reasons why purchasing an extended car warranty to protect your Chrysler can be a smart move. Here are some facts to consider:

  • Keeps the money in your pocket—Extended warranties can save you from spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on unexpected car repairs.
  • Peace of mind—Knowing that you won’t be caught unprepared with a costly repair bill puts your mind at ease.
  • Long-term plans—Planning on driving your Chrysler for years to come? If so, purchasing an extended coverage plan can help you afford inevitable repairs.
  • Resale value—Protected vehicles have a higher resale value. Most extended warranties, including Mopar Vehicle Protection plans, are transferable.
  • Car reliability—Is your specific Chrysler model known to reliable? If you are aware of common repairs, an extended warranty can help you plan ahead.
  • Dealership vs. third-party companies—You can purchase a vehicle service contract from either type of provider, but there are significant differences in plan options, repair shop flexibility, and oftentimes, cost. For example, the cost of a manufacturer’s extended warranty may be wrapped up into your car payments, so you’d actually be paying interest on your Chrysler extended warranty coverage.

Chrysler Reliability and Repairs

With so many makes and models, it can be difficult to know if an auto brand is reliable until you experience it for yourself. Doing research before you make a purchase can give some insight. Here are a few highlights as you get started:

  • Chrysler rose 10 spots from 2016 to 2017 and improved from 2018 to 2019 in a reliability report by Consumer Reports. Their related brands, including Jeep, Ram, and Dodge, also improved.
  • J.D. Power recognizes some Chrysler models for performance, giving the 2018 J.D. Power Performance Minivan award to the Chrysler Pacifica. In 2019, the same model won second place.
  • U.S. News & World Report gives the 2019 Chrysler 300 a rating of 8.0 and the 2020 version a 7.7.

Even the most reliable cars break down, though. Chrysler owners report spending an average of $608 on repairs a year.


How to Make Your Chrysler Last

If your goal is to drive your Chrysler until it dies, follow these tips:

  • Follow the maintenance schedule outlined in the owner’s manual. It will tell you when to change the oil and filters, rotate your tires, and perform other basic car maintenance services.
  • Use reliable parts. Stick to what the manufacturer offers or suggests and talk to a trusted mechanic about your options.
  • Clean the inside and outside of your car on a regular basis. This helps to prevent rust and other damage.
  • Protect your car by parking in the shade, garage, or carport to protect it from sunshine, bird droppings, pollen, and other environmental factors.
  • Check your tire pressure regularly. Keeping your tires properly inflated saves gas and keeps you safe while driving.
  • Purchase a Chrysler extended warranty. That way, you can afford important repairs when you need them. Waiting to fix a problem could further the damage and end up costing you more.

What Determines Your Chrysler Extended Warranty Cost?

Whether you purchase the maximum extended warranty or a plan offered by a third-party company like CARCHEX, factors for establishing the cost of a Chrysler extended warranty include:

  • Coverage level—Warranty plans that cover more components are more expensive than lower-tier plans.
  • Payment plan—If you pay a higher deductible, you pay a lower premium.
  • Type of car—Protection plans for luxury vehicles usually cost more.
  • Car condition—Older age and higher mileage can increase your extended warranty cost.

Keep in mind that the cost of a monthly Chrysler extended warranty payment may be more affordable than an upfront expensive car repair bill.
