    Just remember your extended warranty is only as good as your local dealership.

    I bought one for my 2013 back in the day and is was well worth the money in the long run.

    It's missing the word "good", as in, "Just remember your extended warranty is only as good as your local dealership."

    Which is a great point...the number of dealerships that will honor a warranty AND do quality work on a car that is no longer supported by the manufacturer has to be getting pretty small.

    Is there anyone in St. Joe that will work on one?

    I've had a ton of guys from up North bring their cars to me.

    We sell Zurich extended service contracts on them, I've helped 6 or 7 guys on the forum with them. If you PM your VIN and miles I can get you a quote on one.

    While I have always had our Vipers covered by a 7 year Chrysler warranty plan, the point raised by Steve M is very important:
    "...the number of dealerships that will honor a warranty AND do quality work on a car that is no longer supported by the manufacturer has to be getting pretty small."

    I would further add that many of us have been extremely disappointed in the lack of OEM parts to use in repairs.

    "Back in the day" (late 1990's) when I first purchased extended warranties for our Vipers, the cost was $1,200. As time passed, snd prices rose,, the extended warranty for our Gen V cost $2,000...and, I was quite happy with that.

    Over the years as good luck and good maintenence both played their roles, I never had to make a claim on the extended warranties. Some money lost...yes, but lots of peace of mind over the 22 year period.

    That said. $7,000 is a LOT OF MONEY to spend on the HOPE that the needed parts and an experienced tech will be around to make the necessary repairs.
    I don't send or receive "PM's" since I prefer DIRECT communication.

    The only dealer that will look at my car is over an hour away. All other local dealers will not touch Vipers. However, if I do the repair myself, the local dealer will cover the cost of the part. I did that for my infotainment unit.

    I’ve been taking my car to Woodhouse in Blaire NE for work. They replaced my motor under warranty.
    Is the warranty you’re referring to the Max Care factory warranty?

    I've been waiting on a window regulator from dealership for over 3 months now, even if the dealership can do the work there's no guarantee parts will be available, if they ever will be again?

    Something that people might want to look into - your insurance company might offer the warranty alongside your insurance policy. When I went to insure my Rubicon 392, they offered it as an add-on, and it's only about $100/year with $100 deductible. Coverage, as far as I can tell, is the same as Max Care - and better than Max Care when it comes to the free rental car. Max Care only gives you the car for a few days, the insurance will cover the car for up to 30 days per incident.

    The carrier is Geico - so if you have Geico, check it out. I haven't ever had to use it, but it looks like a good deal.

    Another thing is that you don't have to go to the dealer. That's good for people who live reasonably close to a good independent Viper shop. Parts availability, as noted above, is going to be a huge pain going forward. Let's hope availability gets better - even if stuff is not OEM, there's a good business opportunity for aftermarket suppliers.

    Same coverage, but instead of Stellantis signing the check it's Zurich (who is about 10x's bigger than Stellantis' reinsurance company and offers more flexibility.

    For instance, if you have an issue and the mechanical part being replaced would be $1200 to replace and the part is not available, you can pick out the upgraded part ($1800 or whatever) and cover the difference and Zurich still covers the original amount.

    Actually, it's $100/year. So after five years, it's $500. I haven't used it yet, but it seems like a good deal. Price may be higher on a Viper - when I insured my Rubicon 392, they classified it as a "Jeep Wrangler Rubicon" and they probably didn't have enough data to know that the 392 is a $100k Jeep....

    When I bought my ACR-E, I got a Max Care 8 year, 50,000 mile, $200 deductible (I think) for $2400. I thought that was expensive, but at today's prices, I'm glad I did it.

    EDIT: I read the policy, and there are some restrictions. The car must have been purchased within the past 15 months, and have less than 15,000 miles on it. That's a bit vague as they don't say the car must be "less than 15 months old" and they don't specifically say that used cars aren't covered. The other restriction is that you have to insure through Geico, which isn't the "best" coverage, but it's never let me down.

    I bought the platinum warranty from Dodge as I got a 2 year no interest loan to pay for it.

    Also, it’s nice to know my 2013 Viper will have bumper to bumper warranty for another 5 years.
    Especially after just replacing a motor.

    sounds cool to me - I had zero interest in the Dodge platinum plan, and I'm not feeling any pain yet.

    Yup. They have been on national backorder for at least 6 months. I haven't tried in the last few days though so maybe they are back?

    For some of these parts, there may be a few used ones around. There are a few vendors around here that might have something sitting on the shelf that will work long enough for Mopar to get its act together.
