No - no warranty. It falls under electrical that is only covered for 36000 miles or 3 years. I fought It tooth and nail and refused to hear NO we are not covering it. I ended up getting "MOPAR ASSISTANCE" of $570 and a 44 month no mileage limit on the replacement TIPM. I ended up paying $500 for labor, diagnosis, co-pay. I am still not happy that they lied to me and said they were not aware of amy "known" issues of TIPMs in the Patriots. I wish I had seen this before I got mine fixed, after being without it for 8 weeks while waiting for the parts.
So what I am trying to tell you all is - SAVE YOR RECEIPTS. I was told today that a recall is coming. Like yeah - I said and the man nose was growing as we spoke, but I sincerley hope it s true. It shouldn't take lawsuits to make a company do the ethical and moral thing.
Not sure I will buy another Jeep since I have been told not to drive either of my vehicles far until the recall on the exploding airbags is completed (no date for that) and the TIPM in the '07 is replaced. Jeep USED to be a sturdy vehicle.
A couple suggestions:
1) PM Jeep Cares on this website. I think there are a couple people who monitor that but I'd expect they'd do what they can to help.
2) Might you start a new thread on this subject? This thread goes back 6+ years and Jeep Cares may not be taking it seriously.
Agreed, saving receipts is always a wise idea. You never know when you might have a problem. This story goes back a decade, but the e-brake on our 1997 Wrangler was recalled after we'd already had the repair done at a local shop (Wrangler rolled down our driveway and into the brush/trees). Producing the repair receipt got us full reimbursement from Chrysler even a couple years after the date of the repair. On the other hand (besides 4 fingers and a thumb) we had the famous Saturn ignition switch problem. We paid for the repair but we were SOL when it was recalled because it had been repaired (at a GM dealer) using the same pre-recall parts, so the replacement switch had the same defect. GM only covered replacing the defective switch with the new
Finally, don't give up on Jeep just because you got a problem. Frankly I think your TIPM problem is rare, but maybe not so rare if they are actually doing a recall on it. I once had a 1993 Cherokee with an absolutely dismal repair record; the dealership totally ignored my diagnosis on one recurring problem -- I say recurring, but if they'd accepted my diagnosis they would have fixed it on the second visit. Oh no. They knew far more than me. Each time they restated the problem so it didn't look like the same complaint and each time the problem was right back the next day. (Yes, it was the very next day -- all it had to do was cool overnight). If Wifey hadn't bought a couple Wranglers that were excellent vehicles I never would have bought another Jeep -- I was quite happy with GM. Then I stumbled onto my 2008 Patriot and I'm thoroughly impressed, so much so that we bought another that is also proving to be all I hoped it would be.
As for your last comment about Jeep not being sturdy, they were quite sturdy until the government made them start putting whoopie-cushions in the dashboards!
