yes shirt, yes shoes, no service

now here's a weird thing. you can also buy service contracts ... this is a package deal you can do with chrysler that will give you all the service you need during the life of your car for a flat rate.

you might think this is something dealers would be very eager to sell you, but you'd be wrong. i beg, scream and holler for prices from dealers and places like chryslerwarrantys.com and all i get back is a bunch of confusion and non-answers. i think what the deal is is that people are so reticent to buy it that the dealerships aren't that interested in supporting it.

i call my pal at chryslerwarrantys.com to ask her why people are so slow to offer this.

"well, it's a couple of things. one, dealerships don't always honor the service coupons if they're written by another dealership. they're supposed to, but they don't always. that's why we don't offer them.

"second, they're expensive. not a lot of people want to fork over another two thousand dollars after signing a contract on a car."

"okay, thanks. do you think it would be cheaper for me to just use online and mailing coupons and do it onesy twosy?"


can't really ask any more than that. anytime a dealer says "don't pay me money," that just has to be right.
