Jeep bought from non jeep dealer

Hello all,

I am heading to buy my first ever jeep this Tuesday and have a couple questions for those much more knowledgable than me on the topics.
The dealer is a Cadillac GMC place that I will be traveling out of state to purchase and the vehicle is a loaded out 2011 Limited with less than 25k on the clock. My questions are can I take this vehicle to my local jeep dealer and have it checked off and turned into a certified vehicle with a nice warranty attached to it for a small fee? Also, if not what warranty comes with it? Thanks for taking the time to reply and my apologies if this has been discussed at length elsewhere.

Terrific thanks for that information. Do you happen to know if I can take this vehicle to my local jeep dealer and have it certified pre owned or am I understanding that wrong?

I have no clue on that one. Try calling the local Jeep dealer.

You should get the remainder of the factory warranty. I would recommend looking into a Max care Chrysler service contract to cover it after the basic warranty expires. There are a couple dealers that sell them online at a pretty good discount.

You cant have them "cerifity" it per se, but you can purchase a service contract that any dealer will have to honor. You can't go wrong with the Lifetime Maximum Care Service Contract. I just picked that up for $2200.

Re: Jeep bought from non jeep dealer

If possible go with a Mopar care contract.
The dealership should have available a GM backed one, and if they are like Ford dealers with their used warranties, they just have a trusted jeep dealer do anything complicated anyway--but the Mopar one gets you a hard copy to keep with you plus is attached to your VIN so any jeep dealer can pull it up.

The Jeep dealer should be able to give that thing a pretty good pre-purchase checkout for you for a modest fee, and should be willing to tell you how much it will cost to fix any important stuff, unimportant stuff, or even minor trim and cosmetic issues.

The fancy gewgaws on that thing are quite expensive to deal with, e.g. auto heat/ac, and tend to cause more cost than basic drive train as long as the 4wd components are in good shape.

Re: Jeep bought from non jeep dealer

Cool thanks for the information. I called the jeep dealer where it was purchased new and maintained at and got the records from its history and it's very clean. It also has a remainder of the basic warranty for another month or so. They offered a comprehensive warranty for, get this, $4,000! I think I'll take it to my local dealer and talk a warranty around 1500 or so.

On a side not this jeep is the most beautiful vehicle I've ever been in, much less owned! I'm in love and wish I had purchase it sooner but was waiting for the one I really wanted to show up.
