    i have seen a few threads on here in the past couple months about people missing there 5 year powertrain inspections to keep their lifetime warranties active.
    well I just got done with a training session that notified me about some changes being made to the policy regarding the time frame an owner has to get the inspection done.
    it used to be 60 days after the 5 year purchase date anniversary, they have now extended that to 90 days, and if a person happens to be in good standing with their particular dealership, the dealership could get approval to have the inspection done at a later time if that dealerships chrysler rep approves it.

    so all you guys that missed your window, go talk to your dealerships, they might be willing and able to get you your lifetime powertrain warranties back in effect.

    any questions feel free to ask here or message me.

    When i got my 07 it wasnt offered but several months later they sent me a notice I could get the factory lifetime if I paid them for it. Dont remember what the cost was but I almost wish I had gotten it. When I traded it in my manual trans was popping out of 1st and 2nd randomly and the AC no longer worked. I would have just had them fix it and kept it.

    Thanks for the update. I wish they offered it on the 2011's. I did purchase an extended warranty; it wasn't free!

    I've read that the lifetime warranty also only applies to the first owner. I'm out of luck on my '08. I'm the third owner.

    If I have had my 2011 maintained by the same Dodge dealer and all maintenance done, do you think I can still get the lifetime warranty? I am first and only owner.

    I'm sure they would be willing to sell you one. I still get offers from Dodge about 1ce a year offering an extended warranty.

    I have been following the 150,000 mile rule. They inspected it at that time and will inspect it again at 300,000. I should get there by mid next year.

    You can be the 2nd owner and keep the lifetime pt warranty, if you title it in NC. That's my understanding of the fine print.
