12 Month /12,000 miles on adjustments?

So, I have a few adjustments that need to be made to my 2010 JK with 22k miles.

1. Emergency brake needs adjusting - pulling it all the way to the top the vehicle will still roll on a steep hill.

2. Sometimes, depressing the clutch 100% the Jeep will still not start. I have to depress it 2, sometimes 3 times before it'll turn over and I have to almost stand on the clutch pedal to get it to turn over.

Anyway, I called the dealer and he said #1 was not covered by the 3 year / 36k warranty - that adjustments fell under the 12 month / 12k mile warranty.

I've own many new cars in my 50 years and I've never heard of anything like that - is this dealer pulling my leg?

I didn't get all the manuals and warranty info with the Jeep for some reason....

I wouldn't have even tried to get #1 covered under warranty. To me that falls under routine maintenance. You should have a DVD with the owners manual on it, if not you can get one for free, search this forum its in a post somewhere. It should cover how to adjust the parking brake. I haven't done mine yet but its going to need it soon. (2011 w/5200 miles)

#2 should be covered as its an electronic switch.

Adjusting the parking brake doesn't seem to be an quick-n-easy job. Be nice if it were self adjusting.

+1 and 12/12 on adjustments is pretty common. I'm not sure if it's in the warranty book or not, but that is typical for things that require periodic adjustment, rattles, paint, etc.

Called the dealer I bought it from and they said bring it in and they'd adjust it.

The first dealer I called is not where I bought the Jeep but it's a lot closer to my house and I was hoping to get my service work done there.

Good that they are doing this. But, it is required under your warranty, so they are doing the right thing, not doing you any favors.

2012 Warranty Booklet:

Quote:
2.1 Basic Limited Warranty
A. Who Is Covered?
You are covered by the Basic Limited Warranty
if you are a purchaser for use of the vehicle.
B. What’s Covered
The Basic Limited Warranty covers the cost of
all parts and labor needed to repair any item on
your vehicle when it left the manufacturing
plant that is defective in material, workmanship
or factory preparation. There is no list of covered
parts since the only exception are tires and
Unwired headphones. You pay nothing for these
repairs. These warranty repairs or adjustments
— including all parts and labor connected with
them — will be made by your dealer at no
charge, using new or remanufactured parts.
…..
F. When It Ends
The Basic Limited Warranty lasts for 36 months
from the date it begins or for 36,000 miles on
the odometer, whichever occurs first. But the
following items are covered only for 12 months
or for 12,000 miles on the odometer, whichever
occurs first:
• brakes (rotors, pads, linings, and drums);
• wiper blades;
• clutch discs or modular clutch assembly (as
equipped);
• windshield and rear window; and
• wheel alignment and wheel balancing

Parking brake adjustment is definitely a wear item.

The pads are but not the mechanical aspect of it.

You mean only the pads if they need to be replaced as the cause for lack of adjustment, correct?

Parking brake adjustment is required to compensate for cable stretch, not brake pad wear. It'll be covered for me, 'cause I can read and comprehend the warranty.
