Glad I am still under warranty

Noticed fluid on the garage floor. Took the Jeep in, and they had to change the upper oil pan gasket and re-seal the lower pan. In order to do this, they had to drop the break calipers, remove the front axel, and 20 hours of labor later, it is fixed. This would have cost thousands had it not been under warranty. I remember changing an oil pan gasket on an older car, and it took me less than an hour. They make these things so you can't work on them yourself, and it is very labor intensive.

Uh. Yeah, 20 hours of labor? I hope that's not what I have.

Re: Glad I am still under warranty

20 labor hours for that? Yikes.

Shannon how many miles on your rig? I'm at 18K and did not buy an extended warranty. I still have a little over 18 months left to decide. Stories like yours make me think I should.

26 k miles. As far as the extended warranty, I would definitely get the extended warranty. Over 60 computers/modules on your rig. Would get pretty expensive to fix without the warranty. This repair would have cost me more than the warranty costs. (still under the basic warranty, but I have the 7/100,000 mile warranty).

Re: Glad I am still under warranty

I'm wondering if the leaking gasket would be considered a "normal wear and tear" item under the extended warranty?

With an expansive semantic interpretation of "normal wear and tear", literally everything that didn't ship physically broken from the factory could be considered wear and tear.

Besides, the Maximum Care policy is one of exclusions. E.g. 'WHAT IS COVERED? The plan will pay the total cost (parts and labor) less a deductible per visit, to correct any of the following mechanical failures, caused by a defect in materials or workmanship of a covered component and are not covered by the vehicle’s factory warranty. The only exceptions are those listed under “What is not covered by the Plan”. This plan offers comprehensive mechanical coverage for your vehicle. COMPONENTS COVERED BY THE PLAN INCLUDE (BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO):...'

Finally, the Maximum Care website explicitly lists engine gaskets and seals as covered.

Re: Glad I am still under warranty

Before immediately running out and getting an extended warranty, remember that the 5/100,000 powertrain warranty would have covered this gasket failure:

The Powertrain Limited Warranty covers these parts and components of your vehicle’s powertrain supplied by Chrysler Group LLC:

cylinder block and all internal parts; cylinder head assemblies; core plugs; fuel injection pump and injectors; intake and exhaust manifolds; oil pan; oil pump; timing gear drive belts and/or chains and cover; turbocharger housing and internal parts; valve covers; water pump and housing; seals and gaskets for listed components; glow plugs and all sensors.

I only mention this because a lot of people forget about the powertrain warranty when deciding whether to get an extended warranty, thinking they have only 3/36,000 protection for big ticket engine repairs. It's longer than that.

Good point, and that's great because MaxCare isn't a warranty--it's an extended service plan. Warranties don't have a deductible.

That said, MaxCare will provide a rental / loaner while your Jeep is in the shop for the 20(?!) hours worth of shop time for the gasket repair under warranty. However many days that is.

Really, the coverage for QL and the nav/EVIC will probably pay for the policy on the first strike. I will be relieved if my Jeep goes 8 years without needing that.

Glad I am still under warranty

I've experienced some claims before, a service department can make a big big difference, heck some people with broken DEF injectors were denied basic warranty by certain dealers. I broke mine twice, my previous dealer replaced no questions asked. If you have a dud dealer you're pooched no matter what. Scope this out somehow. I found this out the hard way.

hence- Talking about warranty, i purchased a Jeep few months ago (wk2#2) with a paint defect which turned out to be a warranty repair that pretty much involved painting the whole jeep($5k) I had a dealer in this case not willing to go beyond the fine print which really sucks and you're pulling very short rope when they go into the fine print.

I have the same warranty period albeit the Canadian version which is 7 yr / 160, 000 km
All the techno stuff ( although I love it ) can get damn pricy in a hurry if it goes bad.

Re: Glad I am still under warranty

I would not have one of these vehicles without an extended warranty. When my 8 years is up I may be forced to move on to something else.

My issue turned out to be the timing cover. Of course, this is estimated to take two days in the shop to fix. I guessed correctly where the leak source was on the front of the engine. Makes quite a mess once the stuff hits the belt.

Truth. Then again, perhaps there is a bathtub curve.
