Chrysler extends warranty

DETROIT — The Chrysler group announced Thursday, Nov. 1, that is offering a seven-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on all 2001 and 2002 Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles purchased by Dec. 31. Normally the warranty is for three years or 36,000 miles (see story, Page 26).

Jim Schroer, executive vice president of global sales and marketing, said the program is “designed to shift consumers’ attention to the value of our vehicles rather than on the size of the discount, such as the current 0 percent financing offers.”
