I know it is a rhetorical question but what a budget buster. We purchased an extended warranty on our Jeep for 7 years/70,000 miles that is pretty much bumper to bumper. DH had to travel several hours away out of town for Army training and on the trip the a/c in the vehicle went out. He took the vehicle to the dealership in the town he is in and we are waiting for the verdict but he is pretty sure it is at least the compressor. The mileage on the Jeep is 70,801. I'm assuming we are just out of luck so we are bracing ourselves for the bill. Next time we are springing for the 100,000 mile warranty!
