With all the electronics, gizmos, air suspension, DVD, ACC, etc. etc. it was an easy call for me. Same goes with why I bought it for my truck. If you don't drive a lot of miles and/or plan to get rid of it in 5 years, it definitely makes sense to get a transferable one. I always purchased extended warranties as far out as I could even with cars I knew I'd get rid of in 3 years because it helped easily differentiate my vehicle from somebody else's when I sold it and I've been able to easily and quickly sell my past four vehicles all on Ebay as a result of that. Look at how long you plan on keeping your Jeep and how many miles you drive a year and make your decision that way. The 7r/100k makes a lot of sense if you definitely will get rid of it in 7 years or less and don't drive more than 14-15K a year.

Exhaustive research? Nah...lol. I actually enjoy the research and negotiation part of it. I do the same thing for all my friends and family. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to the dealership with family and friends who want me to help them negotiate...lol. You should have seen how I was with buying my house! Now that was exhaustive but I got a tremendous deal so I felt that all the work I put in paid off!
Thanks for the insight. 3 more days! (i hope)
