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.
Thanks for sharing your perspective. Reading the forums I get all these ideas on what to do, what to buy, etc that it starts to become daunting. You want to do what's best, but at some point jumping off the mental merry-go-round is probably a good idea. Back to earth - mats, mud guards (after racket for Summit), tinting front windows and cargo net - all else will need to wait!

Notice the RED ring around the Speedo to draw attention to it, once you start, you should just let it finish.




Again, I don't expect you will see this very often unless you are using this as the grocery getter. Also most of you will likely want to take her our and really stretch her legs, whereas I have just been farting around and been too busy to go for a REAL DRIVE!!!

I did see a minor impact on fuel economy while this was going on, but no biggy, and I still think the start stop of transport was likely a contributor.


Would rather see the following message on the EVIC

So.. the Lifetime warranty on the Durango was $2185, the 7 year warranty on the Jeep is $1625.

My last jeep had a sensor go out in the transmission, that was $800. That's HALF of what a full warranty for 7 years would run me... in a single repair.

For me, the idea of the QL crapping itself, the UConnect system, or anyone of several thousand parts on this incredibly complex piece of machinery going wrong, I'll be perfectly happy forking out $1,650 now, as opposed to $2,000+ for the repair (or walking away from a car I may still be making loan payments on...).

The Hotspot bit took about 24 hours for mine. Make sure you have a CC on file, etc, etc, etc... Basically, for the first 24 hours, the Uconnect system seems a bit wonky, then it mellows out and everything is golden.

Also of note, some settings you can only change with the engine running (the toggles don't stay toggled).

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

I'm leaning towards the Goodyear All Terrain Adventure's in the original size. I plan to remount the original tires for summer season, my local tire shop will do the swaps for me for free if I buy the tires from them.

Summer here sees almost no rain, so the OE tires should be fine.

I'm leaning towards an extended warranty, haven't decided which one. My Subaru has cost me more than three times the 8 year warranty on the GC will cost in the last couple years. I'd rather spend the money now and be safe and not have to get repairs later than save the money and have to pay a ton out of pocket later.

I came to pretty much the same conclusion. My main concern is the electronics. Expensive to replace that stuff.

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

Great looking rides everyone. Nearing 13000 on my '14 JGC and I can almost justify trading it for a diesel!

It's the indigo interior that is keeping me from getting a Summit. Wish I could get it on a Granite or Black Summit.

AFAIK cargo net is included with Overland and Summit.

the dealership said this was the first indigo interior they have had. Everyone on the sales floor went to look at it. I think its sweet. I really wanted saddle but after having the indigo for a week I'm super happy with it and like it more than saddle.
