Interesting perspectives on extended warranties.
http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/n...anty/index.htm
http://video.foxbusiness.com/v/2351074160001/ (not sure I agree with her blanket "don't buy after market warranties", but whatever...)

I'm leaning toward NOT for the following reasons:
1. It is expensive.
2. If I end up spending lots on repairs, I'll probably dump the vehicle and purchase the next one from a different manufacturer. That'll show 'em:-)
3. I've never had a major car expense in 40 years of car ownership. Am I just lucky or is it because I take care of my cars? I usually keep them close to 10 years.
4. I can take the money I would have spent on the contract and sock it away for repairs. That should cover most/many things and if I'm lucky I'll never use it.
5. The only extended car warranty I ever purchased I didn't use it.

Anyway, that is my current thinking, and it could change. The nice thing too is that I don't have to make that decision when I pick up the car. You can usually purchase these later.

Yes, but without the urea system. Also the common rail spec is a little bit different. There are some Australian owners that may tell you more at the other diesel forum (the export forum).

Ours are just badged as CRD, if you put it into ECO mode it explodes.

We just have a DPF with no urea system.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I have had my unicorn for a little over 24 hours and I am super happy. I'm having some UConnect subscription issues for the mobile hotspot and apps - but I think those will be worked out tomorrow. So far I've had a great driving experience and love how quiet the cabin is and powerful the engine is. I really enjoy driving it because it feels like I'm driving a truck and everyone should get out of my way - but it's so much more comfortable than a truck.

I have 2 defects my dealer will be addressing - one is the fit on the fuel door and a nasty looking stain on the dash by the A pillar. The stain looks like a water mark or something....I'm just hoping I don't need a while new dash.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I have an update on changing tire size. Two dealers have told me that changing the tire size from 265/60-18 to 265/65-18 does not affect the warranty. The 265/65-18 Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar tire has a diameter of 31.5 inches compared to the 265/60-18 Michelin Latitude Tour tire with a diameter of 30.5 inches. It is a change I would like to make, but I am not yet sure when. I suppose the factory tires won't have much value if I don't swap them out immediately.

Ours don't have the CRD badge anymore mine has a nice little green diesel badge instead.

They don't even have much value if you swap them immediately. Local Discount Tire place said they'd only give me $50 each.

Get a price from the Dealer, they gave me decent money for the Forteras... Yes the new tires were more expensive than the discount places but with the discount for the take offs it was very compatible and they did it BEFORE I took delivery, so it was all in the deal.

I decided not to go with this Mat and I am going to Order the X-Act fit from Husky in Black but use the Mopar trunk liner. The Mopar floor mats are of really good quality, but they didn't cover that carpet at the edge that gets all salty and crusty in the winter.

Thanks Will, I'm leaning towards the Husky as well and the black on brown looks good, a little contrast I guess.

Two good links, thanks. I am still debating myself also. I thought that you were sold on a definite CNA buy. I am sure that you are aware that the Ziegler deal is $2,000 for 8 years and 120,000 miles as opposed to CNA's lifetime.

The real questions are, if something major goes wrong will it do it in the 5/50 powertrain period and if something minor with the electronics (EVIC and uConnect) goes wrong will it do it within the first 12 months?

My wife's current Honda had a solenoid in the transmission go at 64,000 miles. It was right before the warranty expired and they replace the entire transmission just because of a bad solenoid.

It seems like anything with the electronics that makes it past the first 12 months will cost less than $2,000 to fix if it breaks later. However, an engine or transmission after 50,000 has to get way above that. Is it worth taking the risk? Wish I knew the answer.
