A Jeep extended warranty may be a worthwhile investment for many drivers. After all, Jeeps are built for the road less traveled and tend to get roughed around more than the everyday family sedan.

You can find an extended warranty for your new or used Jeep at a third-party company like CARCHEX. With our five levels of coverage and a broad selection of packages designed to fit the different needs of today’s drivers, you’ll never have to worry about repairs for your Jeep.

Jeep Extended Warranty Plans

After your Jeep factory warranty expires, the Chrysler dealership offers additional mechanical coverage for Jeeps in the form of Mopar® Vehicle Protection Plans. There are two factory-backed plans to choose from: Maximum Care℠ and Added Care Plus℠.

  • Maximum Care covers more than 5,000 components, which exceeds the new car warranty, and is backed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
  • Added Care Plus isn’t as extensive but still covers more than 800 components, including the powertrain.

Like most manufacturer warranties, repairs and replacements are only covered if they’re due to workmanship error or a faulty factory part. The best thing you can do is read your specific Jeep extended warranty carefully and ask the dealership all of your questions about what is covered and what isn’t. That way, there will be no surprises when you take your car in for a repair and you can make sure to be careful to not accidentally void your warranty.

Both Mopar extended warranties include these extra benefits:

  • $100 deductible
  • $600 key fob repair/replacement
  • First day rental car allowance ($45)
  • Rental car allowance ($45 a day, up to $225 per occurrence)
  • $100 towing allowance/roadside assistance
  • $1,000 trip interruption protection
  • Transfer policy with a $50 fee (Lifetime coverage may not be transferable, based on your location.)

Jeep Maintenance and Repair Costs

Jeep reliability should be a deciding factor when it comes to purchasing additional coverage. While it’s impossible to predict if a vehicle will break down after the factory warranty expires, vehicle reliability can give you a good idea of what to expect in the long term. According to RepairPal, a repair cost estimation site, Jeep has a 3.5 out of 5.0-star reliability rating, placing it 15th out of 32 other car brands.

Jeep owners can expect to pay about $8,300 in a 10-year period to keep their cars on the road. Some of these repair costs could look like this:

  • $630 to replace the control arm assembly (front lower left) on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • $677.37–$1,434.34 to replace an air conditioning compressor on a Jeep Wrangler
  • $212.14–$410.31 to repair a starter on a Jeep Compass
  • $205–$291 to replace a door lock actuator on a Jeep Cherokee
  • $754–$900 to replace a head gasket on a Jeep Commander

If one of these fixes was needed on your Jeep, would it be a struggle to pay for the repair? Given the high cost of maintenance, it’s easy to see why a Jeep extended warranty makes sense. An extended warranty can offset repair costs and alleviate some of the stress of not being able to afford to fix your vehicle after a breakdown.

You can purchase a Jeep extended warranty, which is really an auto service contract, from the dealership or a third-party provider like CARCHEX.

Does My Jeep Have a Warranty?

Before purchasing a Jeep extended warranty, you should consider your existing coverage as well. When you purchase a new Jeep from the dealership, it comes with a manufacturer’s warranty from Chrysler. Similar warranty plans are available for Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Fiat vehicles. The Jeep warranty includes:

  • 3-year/36,000-mile Basic Limited Warranty (comprehensive coverage)
  • 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty (covers the powertrain and related components)
  • Roadside Assistance Service (battery jump-starts, fuel deliveries, flat tire services, and towing)
  • California Emissions Standard Warranty (covers items related to the state’s anti-smog standards)

Jeeps are built with some Mopar parts that have separate warranties from those listed above.

These parts include:

  • Batteries
  • Brake pads and shoes
  • Collision parts
  • Shocks and struts
  • Catalytic converters
  • Mufflers
  • Gaskets and seals
  • Starters
  • Alternators
  • Diesel parts
  • Water pumps
  • Performance parts

Compare Jeep Extended Warranty Coverage from CARCHEX

One way to decide whether Mopar’s Jeep extended warranty is worth it is to compare your third-party provider warranty options.

CARCHEX Extended Vehicle Protection Plans are backed by reputable companies all competing for your business. That way, CARCHEX is able to offer you the lowest price on the market. We have five levels of protection—Titanium, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze—with several coverage options within each tier.

These vehicle service contracts range from comprehensive, bumper-to-bumper coverage, lasting up to 10 years, to basic powertrain warranty plans that cover the most common, expensive repairs to the engine and transmission for up to five or six years.

The increased number of choices isn’t the only reason to consider coverage from CARCHEX. An extended warranty from the Jeep dealership limits you to using their auto shops and technicians. That can prove to be a real inconvenience if you have a breakdown or live far from an approved dealership. With CARCHEX, you have the flexibility to choose from over 30,000 certified repair facilities. That way, you can use your preferred, trusted auto shop or mechanic.

What’s more, we offer roadside assistance and perks that are comparable to Mopar’s offerings. However, we don’t require a deductible, which is $100 with Mopar.
