The Jeep Patriot has been manufactured for the past decade and has also branded as the Jeep Liberty. In 2017, the Patriot celebrates with a 75th Anniversary Edition compact SUV model with leather trim, power sunroof and other unique technology and design details. Like other Jeep models, the Patriot comes standard with a basic warranty covering 3 years or 36,000 miles. Drivers can alternatively opt for the powertrain warranty which cover 5 years or 60,000 miles.
Due to the interior room and storage space, Jeep vehicles are commonly used for longer road trips rather than short daily commutes. Fans of Jeep also like to use their vehicles for off-roading excursions because they know the model can handle more challenging terrain. While all of this is great for driving capabilities, it can be hard on the SUV overall and may result in major repair sooner than later.
Even if you are covered for the first few years of ownership under your manufacturer’s warranty, you most likely will still need repairs to your vehicle at some point down the road. What will you do about coverage?
With a vehicle service contract you can be prepared for this future inevitability. It’s not an extension of your original warranty, but it does provide coverage for major parts, such as the engine, transmission, and water pump. Generally speaking, when you need these replaced, it could cause upwards of a few hundred dollars, in addition to labor costs. A vehicle service contract allows you to budget ahead of time so you’re not put in a financial bind by paying out of pocket for these repair bills.
There are different tiers of policies to choose from to ensure it’s customized to best fit your needs. Qualification is determined on the make, model, mileage, and year of your vehicle.

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.
