BLK2012 I received a mailing from Chrysler reminding me to get the inspection, it came about 2 months prior to the time frame I needed to get it done.

Right, that's what I'm in the process of doing now. I'm in the "time window" for the inspection, that's what I took the Jeep to the dealership for on Friday. I haven't failed any inspections.

MTH Go to the jeep owners website and download the warranty manual for your specific year. They're surprisingly short and simple.

Jeep has only offered lifetime powertrain warranties on a few years of wranglers. My 2010 for example only has a 5 year powertrain warranty.

The lifetime powertrain warranty is the only one of the manufacturer warranties that cannot be transferred. As an original owner, that's not an issue for you.

If the 2008 Chrysler warranty manual reflects a lifetime powertrain warranty, then you win.

I didn't buy anything. It was included at the time of purchase. It was a big promotion back in 2008, etc.

I've got all of the paperwork that I had when I brought it home the first day. I'm almost 100% that I've got an entire booklet regarding the warranty. I just spoke to the dealership where I purchased it and she has asked me to contact Chrysler.

Wish me luck.....

Dealerships can be such a joke...warranty inspection...

I purchased my JK Unlimited (brand new) in 2008 from Dealership A, obviously during the lifetime powertrain warranty promotion.

Fast forward 5 years later.......

It's time to bring it in for the 5 year warranty inspection. This is when they tell you all of these things you need to do in order to "pass inspection" so that your warranty continues.

I drop off my Jeep and return a couple of hours later. The gentleman in the service department proceeds to tell me that my Jeep does not have the liftetime powertrain warranty. Of course, this shocked me and I quickly corrected him. But, he stood firm. I'm now trying to get someone on the phone at Dealership A (where I bought it).

Anyone else heard of such debauchery? I've got documentation in my glovebox regarding the warranty. Wasn't that promotion widely known in 2008?? Am I an idiot or is this guy severely misinformed?

And yes, I'm the original owner.
