If you are the second owner, you must get a form from your local dealer .
Fill that in and send it to Chrysler with a $100 to extend the warranty.
Please note that it must be done within 30 days of the purchase. If you are
not the 2nd owner or the sales date is longer than 30 days ago, you are not
However, regardless of whether you're the 1st owner or the 101'st owner,
the FEDERAL 8-yr/80,000 mile emissions system warranty (including the
catalytic convertor and the Y-pipe ahead of it) is covered 100%, with no
deductible and no exceptions (unless you've been dumb enough to modify
it). Please remember to avail yourself of this warranty coverage along
about year 7 of vehicle age or in the high 70k-mile range and have your
CAT checked. Many of them do wear out before 8/80 and if replacement is
needed this can save you several hundred bux.
I second this, I used to have a Camaro that ate the computer, along with
almost everything else having to do with the Tuned Port Injection every
year or so. The mechanic told me about it and I had it done for almost
free three times. The cause was finally found (one of the parts that
blew was causing everything else) and once that part was redesigned, it
stopped. Saved me literally thousands of dollars..
Funny thing was, it ran great when this happened, but sucked gas at an
amazing rate. No check engine light except for some really dim error
codes that could only be seen in nearly total darkness. Kind of funny,
the error was 1 long and 2 short, that meant everything was "OK".

Supposing that the original owner did not, or you cannot document,
that all the required periodic servicing had been accomplished .
Would that have any effect on the warranty being transferred?
I don't see anything in the warranty book that says anything about the
being limited to the second owner. But it may be in there somewhere.
The "CarFax" report says I'm either the 3rd or 4th owner, 4 if you count the
dealer I bought it from.
CarFax says it qualifies for the 7/70000 but don't say how to get it.
Guess I better call the dealer.
Thanks for your help.
