Chrysler Extended Warranty: Does it Even Exist?

Chrysler Extended WarrantySearching for a Chrysler extended warranty? Are you sure? You might have better luck finding a unicorn, mermaid, or maybe even Bigfoot. Find out why these mythological creatures might be easier to track down than an extended auto warranty from Chrysler. No seriously, it just might be! Keep reading to find out what we’re talking about.

The reason we scoff at your search is because of that tricky word ‘warranty’. Many companies use this word to inaccurately label their products. According to the Vehicle Protection Association, only a manufacturer can produce a warranty. This means that unless your extended warranty comes from Chrysler itself, it isn’t technically a warranty.

What you’re actually buying is a vehicle service contract (sometimes called extended service plan, extended service contract, etc). These are contracts that work similarly to a factory warranty, in which they pay for labor, parts, and taxes for repairs.

Because these companies are not selling contracts that come directly from Chrysler, it means they are technically not considered a Chrysler extended warranty. But they sure do come in handy when repairs are needed!

Let’s try and clear this up for you a little bit. Do us a favor and do a Google search for a Chrysler extended warranty. Wait, you don’t actually have to do that, we’ve already done it for you. Below are the top three results from Google.

Each of these websites seems like they could offer a Chrysler warranty, but do they really?

Chrysler Warranty Websites-min

  • The first site is called chryslerwarrantys.com, sounds legitimate right? Well, one thing we would point out is that they spell ‘warranties’ as ‘warrantys’. We’re not trying to split hairs, but based on this spelling error, we don’t really know what a consumer is getting into. After clicking on the link we found that it’s actually a car dealer in Wisconsin selling vehicle service contracts. (So no, not a Chrysler extended warranty.)
  • The second site is actually the official Chrysler website. It features a company called Mopar that actually manufactures some of Chrysler’s parts. We have no doubt that they offer a valid product, but there are some policy limitations and it can only be placed on new vehicles. (Although ‘backed by Chrysler’, they are still not produced by them, meaning it’s not a warranty.)
  • The third website is called chryslerfactoryplans.com, another official sounding name. This site is owned by another car dealer in Michigan and sells protection plans for his vehicles. They do sell a product that is eligible for used cars, however they have restrictions for coverage such as vehicle age (under 4 years) and mileage (48,000 or less). (You guessed it! Not a Chrysler extended warranty! You’re so good at this!)

Now, it isn’t our intention to ‘bad mouth’ or show any disrespect to these companies. In fact, these companies are all probably very reputable businesses in their respective locations. We are just trying to prove the point that it does not exist because Chrysler does not directly produce one.

*A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty”, but is not a warranty.  A VSC does, however, provide repair coverage for your vehicle after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. A VSC is a contract between you and a VSC provider or administrator that states what is a covered repair and what is not. Endurance is an administrator of VSCs and does not sell warranties.*
