Keep rolling the dice and hopefully that works for you up until that one repair wipes your wallet out,that's the beauty of the extended warranty and car insurance..JUST IN CASE SH&T HAPPENS..that's what it's for.

That is from my build report.
From the 2014 Jeep Cherokee Owners Manual downloaded from Jeep.com:

Powertrain Limited Warranty
A. Who Is Covered?
You are covered by the Powertrain Limited Warranty if you are a purchaser for use of the vehicle.
B. What’s Covered
The Powertrain Limited Warranty covers the cost of all parts and labor needed to repair a powertrain component listed in section 2.4.E below that is defective in work- manship and materials.
C. How Long It Lasts
The Powertrain Limited Warranty lasts for up to 5 years or 100,000 miles on the odometer, whichever occurs first, calculated from the start date of the Basic Limited Warranty, as set forth in Section 2.1(E).

If $#!^ happens, I have saved enough over the years (by not buying extended warranties) to buy a brand spanking new replacement.

Exactly. I agree.

I am curious about the discrepancy between the OM and the build report. Will have to ask my dealer about that.

I am not trying to start an argument. I just like to read owner manuals. I probably need to get a life

In the case of my 1996 Impala SS, the extended warranty would have paid off, but that just means that I should not have bought GM junk in the first place.
Well, I guess I should advice my mother (65) to cancel her term life insurance - after all, my granny is 91 and running strong..

Seriously, the reason why I wouldn't want to own ANY post-MY2010 vehicle without a warranty are the delicate electronics and computers. They are ridiculously expensive to repair/exchange and many of them won't last ten years.

If you put a 2002 Mountaineer next to a loaded 2014 Cherokee, you will see the difference in technology (BTW, I owned such a Mountaineer as well and didn't have any issues. However, I traded it in after 2 years). Compared to the new Cherokee, the Mountaineer looks like a vehicle from the stone-age - which is an advantage when it comes to reliability.

It's just a sad fact that the rule of thumb over the last couple of years has been: The newer the vehicle, the more defects you'll be facing.

True.

However, I was referring to the extended warranty that was purchased.

Just depends on your view you can save money over the long run if you keep your car a long time and enjoy the extended after the original expires or save your cash in the bank if you need it for an expensive repeated repairs should anything go wrong.

Re: Ordering my TRAILHAWK

I put on a lot of miles (05 Dodge Magnum w/294k). I am going to buy the lifetime unlimited miles warranty. I put in over $2100 just in the front end.. If you trade every 4-6 years it not a good deal. Maybe I can put on 300k on my new Jeep Cherokee

If a lifetime, unlimited miles guarantee is $2,100, people who drive much more than average (I average 23,000 miles per year), can reasonably estimate they will spend $4,000+ on repairs in the first 200,000 miles. I'd have to read the entire such guarantee to see, but it seems like a much different thing than the ones which only go to 100,000 miles or such.

What about my 2006 Explorer, or any such vintage vehicle? Engine computer, electronic transmission, body computer - all the same things as on the 2014.

Maybe another thread would be better suited for the pissing match.
