I hope everyone who owns a jeep and has thought or are currently using an after market air filter ie K&N, or any other brand, you void your lifetime warranty by using these better air filters. My 2020 JLU has all maintenance records oil, oil filter, spark plugs, water pump, serpentine, etc….never ran hot. Never gave me a warning. I started it one evening to go to store and suddenly was surrounded by steam. Still no check engine light. Call dealer they say bring it to them (3.4miles) as I was pulling into dealer my check engine light came on but jeep had run great. Just by driving it in, no one would have thought it was blown. However none of that matters if you use an “after market” filter that is better than the factory. I was just denied my claim bc of this air filter. @JeepCares they don’t care. I treated my jeep like a baby. 1st Jeep and in love with it. Lots of miles but I did my maintenance and more and can prove it but they don’t care bc it has an after market air filter….be aware and take note everyone jeep wants their every 30,000 mile money for that air filter or you void that lifetime warranty.

There is no "lifetime warranty" on a Jeep. Is this some dealer offered warranty?
I bought my Jeep at Secret City Jeep in Oak Ridge and it came with a lifetime warranty on drivetrain.

So what failed exactly ?
'surrounded by steam' sound like cooling house blowout.

That's not a Jeep warranty though, that's third party through the dealer. All of those are shady, just like the Car Shield commercials on TV. Everything excluded...

They cannot force you to use MOPAR parts, you can use aftermarket parts on your Jeep or any vehicle. You should call another dealership, do not drop this and accept that your warranty is voided...

@Doolally41 Make sure you are going back to the dealer at which you bought the Jeep ..
