I could understand just a little.

Pressure test? Seriously? I called my service dept and said the WP is leaking and they needed to order a WP for me so I need not wait without a car, they ordered a WP, I dropped it off and they had it replaced under warranty that day. It's a F-ing WP, they fail all the time, especially in Chryslers apparently. Any less service under warranty is wrong. But from what I read here, I seem a bit fortunate with my dealer's service dept.
A new one is about $390 online? Maybe less. I considered buying one for road trips in case, but the one good thing about Jeeps is there are dealers everywhere in the USA. And they do seem to fail slowly from what I've read.
But they are covered under the basic powertrain warranty (7yr/100K I think). I was out past 3 yrs.
