    Agreed. Contacted Clay a few days ago about an 8yr/100K MaxCare warranty with $100 deductible. Quoted me a price of $1710. Good price in my opinion, so I bought it. Very nice guy to deal with. Recommended.

    I just picked up mine today from Clay for $2130. I wonder what the discount was for you, redlinedd.... hmm....

    I have a 2015 DD SXT AWD, just about 7200 miles on it.

    I'll throw in my vote for Clay also! Since I plan on keeping my recently acquired '14 Charger for a long time, I contacted him and requested quotes for the Lifetime Maximum Care for it with the $100 and $0 deductibles.

    I was quoted $2580 for the Lifetime with $100 deductible, and $4480 (OUCH!) for the $0 deductible. I had also mentioned to Clay that I was a Durango owner, and he quoted me $2280 with the $100 deductible for a Durango just for the heck of it. Obviously my 04 D would not be eligible for a policy.
    Apparently, the policies for the sedans are more than the SUV's.
    Since my Charger was a Pre Certified car, that dropped the $100 deductible price from $2580 to $2505.
    I agree it is a chunk of change any way you cut it. To sweeten the pie, you also get a loaner at no charge for up to 5 days per repair, as well as 3 key fob repair or replacements for 7 years or 100K with a $600 cap. There are no inspections required, and since I will probably change the oil twice a year at the dealer by providing them the M1 and them using the OEM filter, all needed records will be on hand in their system. Call it peace of mind, but the lifetime aspect is what really sold me.

    What does MaxCare cover? $4400 seems like a lot of money. Also why would the 04 not be eligible?

    17blcktp:
    The policy must be purchased before the vehicle is reaches 4 years old or 48K miles. The Maximum Care policy covers 5000+ parts, and is an exclusionary type policy. It's easier to list what is not covered, than what is covered. Like most policies, wear items like tires, brake pads/drums, etc are not. It covers the biggies such as powertrain,, electronics, HVAC systems, etc.

    I have no trust in my local dealer repair depts. So that right there prevents me from buying any extended warranty.
    Plus, just looking at my '06 300C and repairs outside warranty...1 radiator, thermostat and 2 radiator hoses, 2 tension struts, 1 HID bulb..total just under $600 in 10 1/2 years of ownership and 187,000 miles.
    Unless you loose an engine or trans, it won't make the upfront cost back.

    Chase:
    It sounds like you had a pretty remarkable experience with your 300, especially since 06 was the second year for that generation. It is fair to say that more folks than not will not see a 100% return on what they shell out for an extended warranty. If one plans on keeping the car for a long time, and may not have the funds on hand for a major repair should it come up, the warranty extension is a valid option. This is the 4th extended warranty policy I have purchased, and so far I am ahead on the first 3 overall.
    #1 was for my 1995 Taurus SHO cost me $1250, and paid back $4700.
    #2 was for my 2001 Durango costing $1600, and paid back $1200.
    #3 was for the wife's 2005 Grand Caravan, and cost $1400 while paying back $2500.
