Be very, very careful.
I have just put down the phone from Jeep after trying to extend my warranty, they are not doing it. The reason I felt we deserved it was first because it was off the road for 3 months after a small crash because they couldn't supply parts and secondly because it has been off the road for 3 weeks because it had a mystery problem that even though they didnt find the answer they assure us it is fixed.

It was the only vehicle in the group that did not need roadside repairs or maintenance. Looking at the other 4WD's we were with a Land Cruiser, Prado and Patrol, bits were breaking and falling off. Mine just kept on keeping on. Car cost around $65k. Bit pricey. It is an absolute gem off road and the qua...
