    Default Factory Warranty - NOT From selling dealer?

    Hi All:

    I recently bought a 2007 Camry and the dealer wanted to sell me the extended
    warranty for $1400. I felt this was too high and he said I could get it any
    time before the normal 3 year/ 36000 mile warranty runs out. I'm only a year
    into the car so I haven't done anything yet but there are Toyota dealers who
    will sell it over the phone (with proof of ownership, etc.) for under $800.

    My wife and I are looking into buying either an '07 or '08 Grand Caravan and
    were wondering if factory extended warrantees are sold by other Dodge
    dealers than the one who we might buy the car from. If so, what kind of
    price should I expect to pay (assuming I choose to get one)?

    Thanks in advance for any information.

    - David

    Extended warranties are NOT Factory warranties.

    They CAN be. The extended warranty on my Camry is from Toyota, not a
    third-party. And when we bought our first Caravan, we purchased an extended
    warranty that was from Dodge. All claims went through Dodge and all of the
    paperwork (including the warranty itself) was from them. I'm aware that many
    extended warranties do not come from the manufacturer, but some do.

    Indeed they do. I recently purchased an '07 Honda Accord for my daughter,
    and got an 8-year/100K mile warranty directly from Honda ("Hondacare").
    Pretty hard to beat, for the price (~$1700).

    I usually buy the Factory Service Contract over the web from the cheapest
    dealer. The difference with some between the warranty and the service
    contract is that the Service Contract comes with a deductible. I've never
    had any problem doing this and it has come in handy.

    I know someone who did exactly what you're talking about. He found a Dodge
    dealership online that was selling the Dodge (not another company) extended
    warranty for much less than the local dealership. I forget the price
    difference, but it was significant.

    Any Dodge dealer can sell you a factory extended warranty as long as
    your vehicle qualifies. What I did was get a quote from an online
    dealer and showed the price and the plan ID number to my local dealer
    who then matched it. I wanted to finance it in with the car. If you
    dont need to finance the warranty in with the car loan then you'll save
    lots of $'s by buying it elsewhere or talking or dealer down.

    Currently most new Dodge vehicles already come with a lifetime
    powertrain warranty.
