Re: OT Jeep Warrenty
Sounds like they're pretty good about warranty work. I haven't had such luck with dealers...
I bought a similar warranty with my slightly used Nissan pickup for about 1000 dollars. I found a leak at the top of my tranny and took it in to the dealer, thinking it would be fixed free of charge. As far as I could tell, it looked like the rubber boot wasn't sealing, no biggie. Unfortunately, I didn't read the fine print that mentioned a $100 deductible in the coverage. Oh well, I thought still not a big deal. I needed it fixed and figured it wouldn't be anywhere near $100, so I let them do it. Went to pick it up and it cost me, can you guess? $98! Yep, 98 bucks for some rtv sealant. And not a very clean job of it, either. GRRRRR!
Maybe you could just set aside that $85 a month and keep it on hand in case something comes up. That way if nothing breaks, you've got it to spend on goodies. Course that might be hard to do! If you're worried about it, read ALL the info regarding coverage and deductibles first. If you're getting good, honest service from your dealer, and the warranty offers reasonable terms it might be worth it.
As for me, In the future, I'm taking my truck to the mechanic down the road first to get an idea of what's wrong. I started doing some work for this guy recently and he's a good one. If it's simple, or not covered under warranty, he's the man. Of course, he doesn't touch the Jeep! No one does...
