As soon as I sell my Ram 2500 or Vette, I am buying a Rebel. Been driving to different dealerships to look at the colors and I thought I was liking the Granite Crystal as my #1 and black as my #2 colors but then I saw the red and yeah I'm in love. But my question is, why do the 2015 have a warranty of 5 years, 100,000 miles but the 2016 is 5 years, 60,000 miles? I say its because the 2015 came halfway so its using 1 1/2 years of warranty so to say.

FCA is still slowly recovering from the Bailout. They've gone from a LIFETIME, to a 100,000 mile, and now a 60,000 for 2016.

It sucks for 2016 buyers, but it does say something about FCA- things are going well.

I think they just reduced their warranty basically. A lot of manufacturers have done this actually. Changing either the time down to 3 years or the mileage down. Only a few brands have kept more generous warranty policies.

people dont care as much as you would think. thats been proven. ram did it to free up cash to invest back into the five year plan. now they dont have to keep a bunch of cash on hand that likely would not be used anyway.

If you are financing your rebel see if your bank offers an extended warranty. I went from a 36k mile bumper-to-bumper to a 100k mile for an extra $5 a month and a 1.85% decrease in APR.

IMO people don't care when they lease...The increase in people leasing is what makes it seem like folks are apathetic about leasing (again IMO).

Anyone I've ever known who bought cash cares quite deeply about warranty coverage.
