Re: 2015-2016 High Altitude Owners Thread

so it sounds like Mopar direct is overpriced, and direct from dealerships may be a better route?

In Florida, it is regulated by the State Insurance Department. Dealers are not permitted to discount and it is the most expensive in the country. I used my son's Georgia address, purchased from a dealer in Michigan and saved about 33%. Stated another way, it is 50% higher in Florida than Georgia, 33% cheaper in Georgia than Florida. I did it all over the phone. ChryslerWarrantyDirect.com Then after it was issued I merely had them change my address. My dealer had suggested I do this.

True, but the person I was responding to doesn't have his location listed that I can see. Perhaps I missed it.

No. I don't think he stated location. When I checked with Mopar Vehicle Prot. directly, I was quoted the listed premium (price) for Florida. Each dealer I checked with out of state quoted the same premium, less than Florida. For me, it is a Florida problem due to state regulation. It was simple to use an out of state address and then do a change of address, and completely legal! I was shocked at the huge difference.

I live in NJ, but the dealer is in NY.

Re: 2015-2016 High Altitude Owners Thread

My poor ride!!! I can't believe I pulled this one off. Mower handle bolt scraped along the rear fender flare. It will be close to $350.00 to repair at the body shop. I know she couldn't stay new forever but only two months after purchase is way too soon!!! Trying to live with the "scratch" for the time being.......

That sucks. I would try some swirl remover and see what that does unless is down too far.

That is why I don't do manual labor.

Rubbing compound should help that out.

Re: 2015-2016 High Altitude Owners Thread

Just stopped by the dealer since I was near and presented the service order for the armrest that someone posted in this thread. Service sent me to parts, parts sent me back to service, then finally got to see the service manager. He of course never heard of this, but after I showed him the armrest in my car and he did some research, he agreed that it was the wrong armrest.

However, he said that this should have been reported as a "shortage of error" after delivery, to which I replied, well how would anyone have known. So, he's going to call Chrysler and figure out how he can get reimbursed by them since it's been 10 months since the car was delivered to me.

Seems like I'm in for an ordeal :S
