Image via Wikipedia Chrysler has recently announced that it will soon be offering three new upgrades to its existing service contracts on its Jeep certified pre-owned vehicles (also on Chrysler brand and Dodge brand vehicles). The three lifetime service contract options are: Lifetime Powertrain Care Coverage, Lifetime Added Care Plus and Lifetime Maximum Care.
The new Extended service program upgrades work exactly like a new car warranty except that they apply to the first owner of a Certified Pre-owned Jeep. In addition to the new lifetime extended warranty programs, Chrysler is also offering an option to purchase Jeep component coverage on top of the standing warranties on each certified pre-owned Jeep upon purchase.
From the press release:
The Lifetime Powertrain Care Coverage upgrade guarantees the engine, transmission and driveline of certified pre-owned Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles for as long as they are owned by the original CPOV buyer.
“In a tough economy, certified pre-owned vehicles become an even more viable option for vehicle shoppers, so we wanted our pre-owned warranty options to offer the same level of protection as our new car warranties,” said Lisa Way, Senior Manager – Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, Chrysler LLC. “Our pre-owned customers tell us that worry-free ownership is just as important to them as it is to new vehicle buyers. The plans provide Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge CPOV dealers with an advantage over competitive CPO programs. At this time, no other OEM makes this type of coverage available for CPO units and no other franchised CPO dealers offer them.”
