Well they sure aren't in the business to try and lose money. But this way you can at least be assured that:

a. Your vehicle will be better maintained, last longer and give you less problems. How many oil changes have you let slip to 4000 miles or so? This way you would at least have good reason not to get lazy about it.

b. You won't have to try and get rid of the damn used oil. I always hated that part about doing my own maintenance.

c. Most Jeepers keep their vehicles on average of 7 years or more.

d. If it's really going to kill you to spend an extra 10 bucks on an oil change, then you've really picked the wrong hobby.

I imagine it's all case-by-case and depending on the dealership and what kind of mood they're in that day.

binaryking Which extended warranty was that? And was it free? You don't have to pay any extra for the lifetime powertrain warranty.

Thats the trick isnt it? We will give you a lifetime warranty that cant be transferred to convince you to always pay us to do everything to it.

The extended warranty they offered before was a better warranty than this.

You are correct, the powertrain must be inspected every 5 years, within 60 days of the delivery date, which the cost is covered for this by your dealership.

The warranty is only on new vehicles and cannot be transferred if the vehicle is sold.

But as far as I'm concerned, its a Jeep, and a Wrangler at that, you can't not lift it.

Lifetime driveline warrenty....

Ok, I'm looking at the Rubicon, and hear they are putting the lifetime driveline warrenty on them...Great feature IMO....But, is there a way to add moderate lift and 33's or 35's without voiding the warrenty....Like allowing the dealership to install the lift or something like that? Just don't want to void the warrenty, but am looking at the Rubicon because I want to own a super sweet looking wrangler that will go when needed.
