SalesChrysler Dropping Lifetime Warranty for All Brands, Including Jeep
Posted by mike on 2009/8/19 20:29:15 (1657) reads

Chrysler is dropping its Lifetime Powertrain Warranty in leu of a 5-year, 100,000 mile warranty. From CNNMoney:

The auto maker will instead provide a five-year, or 100,000-mile warranty across its product portfolio, said Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson. The switch starts with the 2010 models, which are already arriving on dealer lots.

Tinson said the lifetime idea was dropped amid consumer confusion and the inability to transfer the warranty if the car was sold second-hand to another buyer.

Thanks to Wyatt for the heads-up on this story!

If you build a quality vehicle you don't need a long warranty, however the longer the warranty the more confidence consumers have. I agree warranty should be 7yr/100,000 miles bumper to bumper fully transferrable.

It was the Lifetime Warranty that convinced my wife to let me buy our JK over other brands. Without that warranty our next purchase will likely be something other than Jeep.

I am fine with the 100,000 mile part. However, the duration should be bumped up to 7 years.

Que? Overland didn't have anything to do with the Warranty.

2010 is a short model year for the Grand Cherokee.

The preproduction 2011 Overland, Limited, and Laredo have already been heavily publicized: http://www.wkjeeps.com/2011_intro.htm
