I am purchasing one for my 06 C6 from GMPP, which is through GM...

Does Chrysler offer something like this!?!?

If not, could anyone recommend another option!?!?

My '06 SRT8 has 25K miles on it, but has about a year left on the factory warranty...

Thanks in advance...

:)

I can't believe your dealer didn't at least offer you this when you bought the car; dealers make a LOT of money on extended warranties. But yes to answer your question you can buy a Chrysler Service Contract - - and I would only consider a Chrysler warranty, not a third party aftermarket one. Not that Chrysler service is so great, but most of the time the aftermarket warranties either don't provide for all new parts ( i.e. your transmission fails at 50,000 miles and the aftermarket warranty only pays for a used transmission from a wrecking yard, not a complete overhaul or new transmission) or else you have to pay the bill up front and then wait for reimbursement. The upside to a third party warranty would be that you would not be stuck taking your car to the Chrysler dealer's service department - - you could take it to an independent shop of your choice.

I got a sweet deal on my Chrysler extended warranty when I bought my SRT8. It helps the dealer with their profits too. I feel that a 3 yr/36000 mile warranty is not enough since I typically keep my cars for 5 years/60000 miles, so I upgraded. The warranty covers everything except stuff like brake pads, seats, and other stuff like that. It is essentially an extended bumper-to-bumper warranty, and with a car like an SRT8, repairs can be costly, so for me it was worth it. The big disadvantage to doing what I did and paying up front for it is that the dealer has that money for a long time before you will collect on it. I'm not sure about this, but I also have full roadside assistance for 5 years/60000 miles, and without a spare, that may pay off some day. I also get a loaner car everytime I bring my car in for service, but I may not have needed to buy the extended warranty to get this (I don't know).
