Powertrain Warranty (not happy)

This is just a heads up. The crank position sensor on my 2013 JKUR was not covered under the 7-year drivetrain warranty. Here's a quote from the email I received from FCA about my out of pocket expense.

"...the crank position sensor is an electrical component as it
does not run through the engine or come in contact with oil. An
electrical component is covered under your basic factory warranty which
is a 3 year/36,000 mile factory warranty (whichever comes first) from
the in service date of your vehicle. Your 2013 Jeep Wrangler had
exceeded both the time and mileage limitations of the basic factory
warranty at the time the expense was incurred, which is why you were
required to provide cost for the repair...."

So if it doesn't touch oil, it's not covered. Every try to drive a car with a faulty CPS? It most certainly affects the drivetrain. So if you're looking for a vehicle to buy keep this in mind.

This has been a public service announcement.

PS...the Dealer "Skyland Jeep" in Asheville, NC was awesome. Really took care of me so that my out of pocket was as little as possible. So this is in no way a reflection on them.

The crank sensor may not be immersed in oil, but it certainly comes in contact with oil as it protrudes into the engine to sense the tone ring. If they pull that crap with me, I would be fighting that reply.

Glad your dealer took care of you.

Yeah ha ha don't most CPS's have an o-ring for that very reason.

Also, since the CPS is necessary for ignition timing, and ignition timing is critical to emissions, shouldn't it be covered under the longer emissions warranty?
