Optional Lifetime Bumper-Bumper Warranty from Jeep?
Picked up my wife's new Patriot this weekend, and we really enjoyed the long trip home! This vehicle is going to be perfect for her.
The dealer, as part of all the "options" they try to get you to buy, offered us a lifetime warranty, bumper-to-bumper, which he said was an extension of Jeep's 3-yr/ 60,000 mi. warranty, and was offered by Jeep rather than an aftermarket company. He priced it at just under $3,000. We are considering this, because we drive our vehicles for hundreds of thousands of miles and 10-20 years, but I wanted to think about this first since it was so expensive. I am sure it wouldn't cover wear items like tires and brake pads, and am not sure about the clutch.
I was wondering if anyone here had been offered this option, or knew any of the details? He told us Chrysler had been offering it for 6-8 months, and that it was proving very popular...
Thanks a lot!
