The Jeep Grand Cherokee has been one of the favored luxury SUVs over the past two decades. It has evolved over the years to offer more features, more advanced technology, and a better driving experience overall.
When you buy a new car, you have the option of different warranties for the protection of your vehicle. The two most standard policies are the basic warranty which provides coverage for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first, and the powertrain warranty, which provides coverage for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Make sure you understand the difference in what’s covered and what’s not, as these two policies differ.
Without having a warranty, you could be liable to pay a high repair bill for parts and labor that could otherwise be covered. This is the case when your original warranty expires. What happens when you need repairs for items such as the transmission, engine, or an air-conditioning unit? Will you be prepared to pay hundreds and in some cases, thousands of dollars to have it fixed?
Most likely that’s not an expense that fits as nicely into your monthly budget. Car repairs seem to sneak up at the most inopportune time, costing enough to result in a financial strain. But you can have repair coverage and have it work with your budget at the same time with a vehicle service contract.
A vehicle service contract is separate from your Jeep manufacturer warranty, but can still provide repair coverage for your vehicle after your original warranty has expired. It also comes with added benefits including complimentary towing services and customized plan options.
Each policyholder has a representative who will handle any claims and will make payments directly with the repair shop to expedite the process. Take advantage of knowing your options in advance so you aren’t left wondering how you’re going to pay for your next vehicle repair. Get information about the different tiers of plans available and what might work best for your driving needs.

A Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) is often referred to as an “extended warranty,” but it 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.
