Re: Lifetime bumper to bumper SRT

Understood, but I don't think that's how a global brand should operate and they should be conscious of that. Example would be McDonalds. Big Mac is the same throughout the world, Jeep can do the same, and heaven forbid they buck the trend and set a good example for the other automakers.

Actually, McDonalds is a great example. They offer only 2-3 sandwiches 100% in their global distribution. All other offerings are completely different based on the local area. Even from North to South here, they have differences in offerings.

The SRT brand works the same way. It is not the most popular largest selling item in the brand. So you cannot compare it to a Big Mac... This is where my comparison goes all wrong because I cannot find something worthy of an SRT comparison on the McDonalds menu, but I think you understand what I mean.

SRT is niche and therefore treated differently based on region.


** I should clarify that I do agree with you it would be great to see a more uniform offering of warranties globally but something as simple as climate differences all the way to emissions laws make that nearly impossible for an auto manufacturer.

I can tell you in Canada, as a consumer here, I can't find any reason why we wouldn't want to have lifetime bumper to bumper. Jeep should offer this in any country and price it accordingly for that market.

Re: Lifetime bumper to bumper SRT

I have one on my 2012 GC SRT. Only reason I was able to get one is because a buddy got one two weeks earlier. Otherwise the dealer said it wasn't available on SRT models. Saved my butt when I had a valve spring break at 40k miles and they had to replace the entire head. $5k repair job for $100.

I am not arguing with any of you, sure the option should be available but it isn't and you would need to ask the Canadian Head Office why it is not.

I was only pointing out that this is the case with nearly all companies and policies that they are handled differently in each region.

I think the SRT warranties are ridiculous in Canada. The U.S. gets 3yr/60000kms bumper to bumper and 5yr/160000km power train.

Shawn.
Not only Canada, also here in the Middle East. Costs nearly 3k USD to extend from the 3yr 60k to 5yr 100k.

To add to that BS, all parts here are strict MSRP as well, not a shred of discount because only a single supplier permitted per country so if you want to get a part locally, you only have a single choice. Buying parts from dealers in the US and shipping is most often cheaper, depending on size/weight of the parts.

This is the same for all brands, though, so not a special FU to Chrysler owners.

What can ya do.

Nope...

I'm canadian and just bought mine 2 weeks ago.

Jeep does not offer the extended power train warranty on any SRT products is what I was told. You get the 3yr 60K as usual and I paid extra to extend my warranty to 5yr 100k. You get hosed on the extended warranty price as well. All SRT models have a surplus due to the type of vehicle it is. I was able to negotiate a bit but I think I paid about $3200 to extend my warranty to the max 5yr.
