Jeep Wrangler JK nightmare

Hi guys
this is the first time i have posted any thing here but feel i want to share my nightmare
i purchased my 2007 jk 4 months ago with a trade in from a car yard and it came with a warranty plan which was plan B ,there is ABCD plan D plan being the best.In the first week i had a engine warning light come on so i rang the car yard and they said contact your warranty plan so i did and no surprises it was not covered so i forked out a few hundred cant remember exactly how much to replace a new part.
i took it for its first service since i had the car as you have to service it every 3 months as the warranty plan is voided,the mechanic showed me that the car required new upper and lower ball joints ouch $750 and also warning lights were flashing like a xmas tree and the total integrated power module needs replacing quote is $900 for a secondhand part which again the warranty does not cover it.
I am so disappointed as i really like the car on the surface it looks immaculate however feel ripped off,the mechanic said that no way this should should have passed the road worthy as i only had been driving it for a couple of months ,any way i am taking it to a jeep garage to hook up the diognostic just to make sure it is the TIPM.

I would also like to vent that after 1 week the engine warning light came on and i rang up the garage i bought it from and they said basically not my problem ring your warranty plan which was Setinel and guess what not covered??
So i had to replace the EGR valve this then fixed the engine warning light.
I took it for its first service as explained and had to replace ball joints agin warranty did not cover it and now up for a TIPM and guess what thats not covered after looking at my warrant it is covered for -engine computer,internal components of engine ECU only am i right in this ????
basically the warranty is worth jack sh??
Feeling very disappointed as i am out of pocket $3,000 so far
hoping that tomorrow jeep garage will diognose the warning lights issue and its a lose wire or some thing and not a new TIPM.
