Leaking transmission ac condensor cooler
My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 47,500 miles has a leaking transmission cooler. Chrysler uses a combination transmission AC condensor cooler. They don't consider this a covered item under the powertrain warranty even though it seems to be a critical system to the transmission. The replacement cost is around $850. The dealer told me they have seen a number of these leaks recently. They have hinted that they may "comp" me on at least part of the cost. I have also contacted Chrysler's consumer hotline. They are going to contact the dealer to see if they will contribute and if they won't, they will consider whether they want to contribute. Has anyone else had this problem and if so, what was your experience with Chrysler and the dealer? It seems to me, the entire cost should be covered.
BTW, my web search turned up that Ford had the same problem with a combo transmission cooler AC condensor unit on the 2008 Ford Escape and they provided an extended warranty.
