Chrysler will be gone in a matter of months (they will never be able to repay the loan that the US Congress is about to give them to stay in business). Once they down the various servicing contracts will be offered out to other auto companies. I remember when Diahatsu went under, Toyota picked up all the ongoing spares and service business in Australia. That would not be so bad would it, going to Toyota for service and spares (Jeepota).

I think that when and if you have a problem gauge the treatment, experience, feedback on your own experience.

Each persons experience will be different depending on so many different factors from the fault, the mod its self to personality clashes etc etc

Each manufacture has this mod clause and play that card for what ever reason it might be..........

I sent my JK back for minor things yesterday, similar things that have happened to my Toyota's in that passed. My JK is modified, suspension, bar , lights, wiring, snorkel etc etc

They fixed everything without question and the service was outstanding............

I am so yawning over this topic..........

If Jeep went to Toyota I imagine there would be cruiser and hilux owners out there cursing us bigtime

But if we could get their parts availablity and aftermarket service then perhaps redgp would still want to keep his Jeep

I thought there was talk of Hyundai picking up Jeep though....

I must say my Warranty experience has been good aswell, I just dont appreciate poor spare support. This has been magnified by the corporate restructuring and collapse of the US car manufacturing industry.

Gotta agree Glen ... if handouts are provided ... its not likely that repayment will happen unless they are given a loooooong time to pay it back.

Despite the good models chrysler have had over the years, they have always been the "lesser" preferred vehicle ... especially in Australia. Cheapness in manufacturing has always been an issue.

To up sales figures when in a rut, they have in the past, relied on involvement with other "lesser" preferred but better brands to get by ... e.g. Mitsubishi in Aust in the 70s - end result ... chrysler australia folded ... Now its the Jeep brands turn and we will see what happens.

Toyota picks up Jeep ??? ... good way to get rid of the opposition ... same as what happened to Daihatsu ... Daihatsu didnt go under ... Toyota and their majority shareholding of Daihatsu ( aquired in the late 90's ) is the reason for the lack of Daihatsu in Australia ... rightly so that service and parts be provided by them ... and as for toyota genuine service costs ????? .... Using chrysler is a good preparation for that ... LOLOL ...

redgp,

I feel for you after dealing with Chrysler Jeep myself for near 12 months and nearly loosing the plot.

I was very close to getting a Patrol or D3 instead until a solution from the dealer came up.

I love my Jeep and all its quirks and can deal with the failures etc but the service and mindset from CJ is what kills the passion.

All the best in your next purchase and see ya on the trails.

JTO
