I am so excited by this development.
My extended warranty on my ‘14 Overland GC ran out on Dec 27, and much as I hate purchasing extra warranties, I don’t trust this car, so I put a payment down on another 3 years of warranty, and we were planning to sell it this summer.
BUT.
Maybe with this new extended warranty deal, I could cancel that one I bought (60 days no questions asked) and feel confident keeping my paid off vehicle!
I wonder how long it will take to get the ball rolling on the software to get the warranty in place.

"In addition, owners will get an extended warranty on all parts and systems affected by the software update, the settlement states." - so I guess that means the emissions control system will be covered?

I've got a 2014 Limited that I purchased new in July of 2014. It will be going away soon after I collect the settlement money. In the years I've had it, it has not gone an entire year without a warranty repair that took days/weeks - only 1 of which was related to the engine in any way (the catalytic converter recall from a few years ago). Luckily I bought the bumper to bumper extended warranty when I bought it...
Yeah, we’ve had multiple issues unrelated to the emissions, but most have been easy fixes. Outside of the emissions related repairs, my main problem is every time I get something small repaired, they break something else!!

Holy cow!
Mine is in the body shop right now, too, but not the Jeep’s faultthis time. Someone backed into the front end while I was parked in November... still don’t have it back. The ACC/FCW sensor is proving problematic, and the shop jacked up the paint. Hopefully getting it back next week, and then on to the next problem - the very short lived oil life lately!

Found this additional info on greencarreports.com:

Authorities are targeting mid-May for the software update to be available, as the settlement still requires final approval by the court. Once it receives that approval, existing EcoDiesel owners will have 18 months to file claims and former owners will have 90 days.”

Darn. I was naively hoping for sooner, as we’re moving from Hawaii to Virginia in June, and the Jeep will be in transport for quite a while and I’ll have to start fresh with a new dealer over this specific issue when we arrive.
