extended warranty yes/no?

I was notified buy dealership that I can purchase extended warranty for my 2008 jgc laredo diesel. It has 3 years 60,000km and 5 years 100,000km powertrain warranty. It has 53,000km right now. They want like $2000 to extend the warranty to I think 100,000km and 160,000km. Being that it is diesel should I buy the extended warranty or should I just keep what I have? What should I do?

I had it for both of my crds. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Mine timed out, not mileage.

I turned down the extended warranty...never had good xp with extended warranty's Opted to use Geico's Mechanical Break down insurance. Either way I think both options are a gamble...sometimes you win, most times you lose(my xp). I think Giecos MBI is a safe and cheaper bet...if of course you have Geico.

Re: extended warranty yes/no?

I would get the extended warranty on that 3.0L. The parts are pricey as hell since not only a diesel but a mercedes. They are a bitch to work on so labour will be high too. You do not want to pay out of your pocket when you need a swirl valve or turbo. Most of the time they also need new intake parts that wear out since they are moving plastic... so yea extend that shit lol.

I think that having the warranty thru chrysler made the difference.. no real issues and all oem parts. my service manager bent a few rules.
