There was a time when Mopar offered a Jeep lifetime warranty. This plan had flexible terms and unlimited miles, but the company took that option off the table.
Today, Mopar’s Jeep extended warranty is called Mopar Vehicle Protection, which includes two warranty plans for new and pre-owned Jeep vehicles:
- Maximum Care℠: This plan lasts for 8 years/125,000 miles and covers up to 5,000 components.
- Added Care Plus: Powertrain and component coverage is extended with this plan that covers up to 850 components with a flexible term length. You can choose term and mileage limits up to 8 years/150,000 miles.
Both plans include a car rental allowance, towing, roadside assistance, and trip interruption coverage. But once these warranties end, you’re on your own to pay for replacement parts and repairs.
You may find Powertrain Care Plus℠ plans through certain dealerships. For dealerships that do offer Powertrain Care Plus, drivers can expect extended coverage for their engine, transmission, and 400+ components with term limits that range from 5 years/85,000 miles to 8 years/125,000 miles.
Mopar also offers GAP (guaranteed asset protection) coverage for new and pre-owned Jeep vehicles. This coverage makes up the difference between what your Jeep is worth and what you still owe on it in the event of a covered total loss.
For further context of Jeep extended warranty options, the graphic below shows the major differences between the two most popular coverage choices in the extended warranty industry: the bumper-to-bumper contract and the powertrain plan.

What Jeep Drivers Are Saying
In December 2023, our research team surveyed 1,000 manufacturer extended warranty contract holders to learn more about satisfaction with automaker coverage. A total of 65 percent of drivers with Jeep coverage reported being satisfied with their plans. Here’s what they had to say:
- “It helped cover an engine problem within first year, so I was very happy about that since I wasn’t out any money.”
- “Everything I needed anytime has been covered and completely handled!”
- “It was expensive and I haven’t had to use it yet. I worry that I just wasted the money. But it will be nice to have if I ever need it.”
