I have purchased probably 30 new cars in my life, not once have I caved to the extended warranty in the F&I office. Just politely decline and tell them you're not interested.
I have bought factory extended warranties only for maybe 3 of these cars that I've kept for 3 years or more, including...
Because it's a simple part to replace, and upgrading it at the same time is an option.
Taking it in for warranty service on a $40 part will likely involve multiple trips to the dealer, time without a vehicle, etc.
Some things are just not worth having the dealer screw with, and this is...
I have changed my oii 5 times so far on mine, exactly 5 quarts poured in each time. It's always at the same level on the dipstick, which is over the "full" mark by 3/8" or so? It came that way when it was new as well. Just the nature of the beast I think.
Buddy at work changes his oil every 20,000 with conventional oil on a 2015 3.5 Ecoboost. It just turned over 200,000 without any engine issues. I wouldn't ever do that, and I think he's been incredibly lucky.
I put $35 Beamtech LEDs in my Sport S 3 years ago. A vast improvement over the halogens. $1,500 seems ridiculous to me. Maybe they're not quite as good as the factory ones, but they work surprisingly well, have never been flashed, and have the same cutoff as the halogens.
I've been using the Carlinkit 2 or 3, not sure which now, for 2+ years. I have no issues with my phone doing anything weird for the 30 minutes the USB stays hot in the Jeep. It's in my garage so I'm not that far from it either.
Been using Westley's Bleche-White for 45 years, has always worked well. I guess it got bought out by Black Magic but it's still called Bleche-White. Hopefully it's the same forumula.
Was originally for whitewall tires but does a good job of cleaning up any tire. Just spray it on, let it sit...
I remember reading that it's not *that* hard to install the new handles. I have JSCAN so I can reprogram the Jeep for that feature. Seem to recall it was about $500 if you did driver's door and rear door. Probably wouldn't bother doing passenger side.
I'm moving soon but maybe after I get...
I have to add fluid to mine frequently as well. There's also a stain on the hood liner above the turbo area. Not sure where it's leaking/spraying from but my reserve tank is frequently low/empty as well.
