?- warranty

ok- we have our used '07 wrangler 4 door and I know about adding the warranty past the regular 3/36,000 mark- the jeep i bought is for a 16 year old and I have no idea how long we will keep it but I imagine awhile and the warranty is assumable so how many extra years would you recommend?

I would think that an 07 has at least the balance of the warranty, maybe the 7 year 70K, or even the lifetime power train. I bought an 04 and was given 7 year 80K because it was considered a certified pre-owned. I am certain you got some type of extended warranty included. Check with your dealer. You should not have to buy it, only if you want to make it a "wrap" or warranty that is like an extended bumper to bumper.

No certified pre-owned from Jeep, if not bought from Jeep. Call Jeep Chrysler customer service to see if you have the powertrain warranty. Have your VIN handy to give them.

How many miles on it? Extended warranties are if you plan to keep forever. It can be expensive buying an extended warranty. Like over $2K. If the Jeep is in good shape and you had it checked out. Wekk it really depends on your comfort level. I don't think I would buy one, because even if it is a Chrysler extended warranty, sometimes you have to prove to them and jump through hoops to get the claim covered. And that is after paying $2000 plus for the warranty. It is a gamble. My feeling,save your money and that can go to the repair if ever required. Just my .02
