warranty help

Hi,

Could someone explain to me what is included with the manufacturer's warranty and should I also get extended warranty?

I was at the dealership the other day and the finance manager didn't quite explain the full details, but instead insist on me getting the extended warranty(+2300CND minus from $3300). This is for a Jeep Patriot 4x4 North Edition.

Thanks

There are lots of different options on warranties. Check them out on this site for comparisons and pricing. If you're going to keep yours a long time just keep in mind the electronics can be very expensive to replace.

Hi,

What are the chances of a Jeep breaking down if I drive 600KM per week?

That's about 20,000 miles a year, way over the average!. I've got over 46,000 miles on mine and nothing significant has broken. There are some with more miles than me that I haven't heard of anything major either. Then there are some that have had some problems that happened early and were covered by the standard warranty that they all have.
