Re: ACC recall +trany flash

OK, doesn't effect me as mine was manufactured 11/13 so probably why I was not aware of it. Thanks anyway.

Re: ACC recall +trany flash

Are you sure you are in the right forum? This forum is for the Jeep KL platform. I have a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited and I am not aware of any ACC recall for the KL Cherokee.

Re: Extended warranty 100,000

Shakes head. Are you sure that is a Chrysler/Mopar Service Contract? Seems more like third party stuff to me.

Re: 2014 Cherokee Mopar Accessories Catalog NEW

I would think so but they may also take a credit card or check/money order as well if you ask nicely in your email. I don't see them turning down a sale if they can help it.

Re: Extended warranty 100,000

You are correct in that miles and time make a difference. I had about 1,500 miles and my Jeep was about 6 months old when I bought the Service Contract.

Always love it when a new poster jumps on and tells long time members that they got ripped off without giving details. As they say, the devil is in the details.

Re: Did you get extended warranty for you 3.0 diesel

You shouldn't have to wait more than 24 hours if this is the real Mopar Service Contract. It should be in your Owner Connect Account the very next day after purchase.

Re: 5 Years of Free SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on 2015 Jeeps

So let me get this straight. Chrysler is teaching its customers to hold off buying in case something will get thrown in for free at a later date? Sounds like a poor business plan to me.

Re: Should i get my oil changed at the dealer?

My Mopar 4 oil change deal is in my Owner Connect Account tied to my VIN. I can use it at any CDJR dealer. The only problem with this package is that it expires after two years.
