Though Mopar® is mainly known for providing parts and services for cars under the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) brand, it also provides extended auto warranty contracts for any FCA vehicle. But when your factory warranty expires, is a Mopar extended warranty worth it?

Read this guide to learn what extended warranty plans Mopar offers, how to get a quote, and how Mopar’s services stack up to CARCHEX.

Mopar Overview

The name Mopar is a combination of the words “motor” and “parts.” The brand debuted in 1937 as Chrysler’s proprietary brand of antifreeze, and since then, it has grown to provide parts for all FCA vehicles. Today, Mopar is the official parts and services arm of the company.

What Is a Mopar Extended Warranty?

Sometimes referred to as Chrysler extended warranties, Mopar Vehicle Protection plans are factory-backed service contracts. Mopar has a vast network of brand repair facilities across North America, all of which use genuine Mopar parts. The brand offers new and used extended car warranties for the following brands, along with some competitors:

Mopar Vehicle Protection plans have different purchase restrictions depending on the age of the car:

  • New: Vehicles within three years/36,000 miles of their original in-service date (may come with a surcharge after one year/12,000 miles)
  • Certified pre-owned: Vehicles that are within the certified pre-owned limited warranty and have less than 75,000 miles
  • Pre-owned: Vehicles that are no more than 10 model years old and have less than 150,000 miles or vehicles that are within the five-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and have less than 125,000 miles

If you buy Mopar extended warranty coverage when you buy your vehicle, you can add the cost to your auto loan. Otherwise, you can pay up front or with an interest-free payment plan. To cancel a warranty, you must contact a dealer directly. If you sell your vehicle, you can transfer your coverage to the second owner for a $50 fee.
