Your dealer should know whether your GC's repair is covered under that 'hidden warranty' from Chrysler.

Sometime last year with my '97 GC with about 50K on the odometer started blowing warm air on AC. The dealer didn't even contact the warranty company, they charged it to Chrysler under the 'hidden warranty' mentioned above. The total would have been around $1100 if I'd had to pay for it, so you're getting a great deal at $750 if you do have to pay....

Funny thing is if I didn't have that WarrantyGold warranty then I'd have gone to an independent shop to save a few bucks and would never have learned about the 'hidden warranty'.

If it turns out that you are not covered under this special extended warranty, then you should shop around at the independant mechanics. You will most certainly save money over the dealer.

What year is your grand and how many miles are on it. And just to clear things up this is not a hidden warranty. It clearly states when you pull a vehicle information sheet from chrysler it states evaperator extended 7/70. The warranty was extended for customer satisfaction. there not going to send notices out for this like a recall. 750.00 bucks is not bad considering you have to pull the a/c box out. The book pays 6 hours on this. And I'd dare tell you how fast 2 technicians can do it, he he he he he............... well hell......... 1,800 seconds....

Where do the leaks usually occur, by the way? Does the evap itself spring a pinhole leak somewhere, or does it leak at the point where the evap is welded/brazed/whatever to the pipes, or what? Just curious since I'd imagine the weld might be susceptible to a leak....
