I just saw the commercial night before last. I wasn't quick enough once I realized what they were saying to read the fine print.

Fine print is it is NON-transferable. The only warranty that transfers to a second owner is the standard 3/36 bumper to bumper. And the powertrain isn't the problem with Mopar it is the horribly bad body and interior quality/longevity.

Since the average American only keeps a vehicle for 3 years they are not really stepping up much with the warranty. More marketing than anything. Lifetime sure sounds good but the reality is GMs 10/100 is a far superior warranty since it is transferrable.
