All of this new technology with unknown replacement costs are making the decision to purchase the lifetime warranty easier. If you're someone that keeps a vehicle for longer than the factory warranty period it might be a good $$$ decision. BSG, ESS, turbo, sealed transmission, extra batteries, mild hybrid systems, sensors galore, and everything is integrated into the touchscreen control in the dash. None of that is going to be cheap to diagnose or repair. $2,500 now or ? later. The good thing is you have a year to decide if you like the jeep. If you like it and think you'll drive it for a long time I'd purchase the warranty. Further research is required to make sure all of this is covered. I'm a diyer and can fix about anything, but much of this is over my head. It's almost impossible to work on your on vehicle anymore.
