There is one dealer on line that is listing warranties that are far cheaper than anywhere else and found when looking for Chrysler warranty plans but was told by my dealer that they had been warned that they were not authorized to sell it at that price. Said I was taking a chance of it not being honored.

Not sure how valid that statement is but since I was able to finance the warranty through that dealer I figured the extra 100 was not worth the battle at that time.

I put about 30K on each year so somewhere around year two I will have to see about getting an extension so until then I can only repeat what was told to me. Perhaps you can call mopar and ask the same question.
Sounds like a fine mix of BS and scare tactics to me.

Re: Lifetime Extended Warranty Not Available On New JGC Diesel

Yea I think the dealer might have been putting a line on me but the difference was small enough that being able to finance it fit things for me better.

As far as the extension goes, I got that information direct from a Mopar representative where if I followed their advice I would purchase a lesser policy. Again I have been around long enough to realize that they might be pushing that because the shorter term policies have better margins. But she did say several times that lifetime was available on an extended plan. Now what that would cost I do not recall if she said a rate or not.

No matter, in two years I will be in touch with them to extend the policy and then I will see what the reality is. I do know that I contacted a company about my Jetta and I was able to get up to 250K coverage and that was a diesel.

Up to 250K I am not as concerned about the engine as much as the electronics and the transmission.

Don't forget the exhaust system. It is complex on the SFU's, has parts that are expensive, and many of those parts are deteriorating or need some major service down the road (DPF cleanup/replacement, CSR catalyst etc...).

I dont think it will be a problem...if you take care of it, don't abuse it, and do the required maintenance it will last 15 plus years and 300K plus...just my two cents.
How is the Overland Diesel running? I just picked up mine, a 2015 identical to yours. Jeep now has a 5 yr/100K factory warranty on the drivetrain. The lifetime drivetrain warranty exclusion wasn't disclosed to us by sales but was dropped on us by the business office agent. Very poor communication. I'm hoping the 15 years, 300K plus "crystal ball vision" comes true!

Re: Lifetime Extended Warranty Not Available On New JGC Diesel

Chrysler does not offer the Lifetime warrantee on ANY diesel product.

I have the JGC Ecodiesel and the RAM 2500 CTD. Both have the 8 year 120K warrantee.

Lifetime warrantee only for gasers.
