The remaining bumper to bumper and power train warranty 3/36 5/100 is transferable on a 2010.

Preowned 2010 JK Unlimited - Not Certified but...

So I've made the decision that the new(ish) Wrangler will be a 2010 JK at a very nice price. The dealer seems to be alright (came in with the best new car price, and didn't bellyache when we told him we were opting for a preowned). The JK has fair mileage (15,000) and the carfax looks clean EXCEPT it was a rental/fleet vehicle.

Pato suggested that I talk with the dealer about seeing if it could be Certified Preowned... for whatever reason they don't do the Chrysler Certified route - and I know that there are warranty extensions that can be purchased for similar prices. So we reached a stand off - then I mentioned that "not to be rude, but I'd want a third party to inspect the JK." A prepurchase inspection or PPI.

The dealer responded well to that, I have a mechanic near me (probably a 40 minute drive each way from the dealer) who I trust. The dealer said if I can give him the info, he'd be willing to bring the JK to the shop I chose for the PPI. The shop charges about $190 for a two hour inspection (seems fair, they even said are you sure you want a 2010 inspected?). I figure peace of mind is worth $200.

So here are some questions:
What sort of warranty (if any) would still be covering a preowned 2010 JK?

Any reasons why the dealer wouldn't want the Certified Preowned? Pato says it's only around $400 for the dealer to do (the dealer implied that the dealership's owners rarely do it for any car they sell - but it also sounded like they might do it if purchase was guaranteed afterward - I don't want to be putting any deposits down until I'm sure).

What sort of aftermarket warranties are out there - what should I look for and how much are they? The dealer sounded like he had a few that he could suggest...

Any other feed back would be appreciated as well.
