    The MySky power roof went out on my 2015 Trailhawk. I purchased the Mopar extended warranty. Thank God because the repairs are gonna be almost 6k. They have to replace the whole roof. The steel pan the MySky panel sits on became disconnected from the track. They dont have parts for that hence the whole roof replacement. The whole process has been a pain. Now I have to wait for Chrysler/Mopar to send a rep out to inspect it to make sure the dealership diagnosed the correct problem because the repairs are so much.
    As an aside I purchased the extended warranty through Mopar and it is paying off. I got a rental while I wait for the inspection (Wrangler) and i get a rental while they do the repairs. All for about $1500. It doubles the factory bumper to bumper for 3 years/60,000 miles.
    Anybody else had any warranty issues? I've had to have the tranny replaced also.

    All I've had has been a thermostat and the coolant tank. Had a rental for a week(ram 1500) and the dude was so awesome to me. That extended warranty is definitely worth it if you plan on keeping your car

    Got my Jeep back today. What an ordeal, originally went to dealership for the issue on April 10th. 2 months later it's fixed. It was there for 8 days waiting for the Chysler inspection and another 7 to do repairs. The entire roof had to be cut off and s new one put on. To take the roof off the headliner had to be taken off. For the headliner to be removed the windshield had to be taken out. Had to paint the roof afterwards. I never would've got the MySky had I known this might happen. It's cool but i take the panels off 2 to 3 times a year. Not worth the issues. What blew me away is that it could've been fixed with a $100 in parts, instead Chrysler authorized an $8k repair. Unbelievable. I'm seriously thinking about trading my Renegade in after this. If it happens once it can happen again. Good thing I had the Mopar vehicle protection or I would have been up a creek. Plus the whole process was painful and unavoidable. Dont know if it reflects Chrysler as a whole or just the dealership, leaning towards the later but...I dont want to find out again. 3rd warranty issue I've had to deal with and all 3 were a headache dealing with everything.
