High mileage WK2

So, I bought my WK2 two years ago with 30,000 miles on it and now I'm sitting at nearly 60,000. Dumb me didn't buy an extended warranty. I plan on keeping my WK2 for another 4-5 years so am looking into the mopar extended warranty.

My question is what kind of problems are high mileage WK2's running into? Did your extended warranty cover?


Post year, package, mileage, and problems please

2011 Laredo with 60,000 miles problem free thus far

Re: High mileage WK2

I can't answer your issues question because I haven't experienced any at 41K miles after 25 months, but I did purchase the Mopar MaxCare Lifetime Service Contract because of my high mileage expectation and need to keep the vehicle for 5-7 years. Given all the tech combined with time/mileage, I felt more comfortable with having the extended service contract. (It's not a warranty... 0

Re: High mileage WK2

I am about to break 90,000mi on my 2011 Overland 5.7 4x4. I do have an extended warranty to 125,000mi. My issues:

Black plastic trim is fading - not covered by warranty
Driver's seat has a small tear (A/C seats so prefferated leather) - Need to take it in to see if it is covered.

Absolutely no issues mechanically or electronic wise. The last month or so I have a new rattle coming from the panoramic sunroof.

That's awesome.

for the trim, is it that gloss black molding between front and rear doors?

Mine popped out of place and had the dealer fix it under warranty. (im still under 36k).

I will say the quality of those things sux.

Thanks for posting the high mile report .... only 25K on mine, but nice to see high mileage with minor issues.

BTW, there is a TSB for a rattle sound coming from the panoramic sunroof.

No, I'm talking about the black plastic pebble finish trim all around the truck. Wheel well arches, rocker panels, front and rear bumper trim, etc. And my truck is garaged every day.
