XK 8 days old (to me) 67k Exhaust Leak
Today I went out to start the Jeep, and let it warm
up for about 5 minutes. When I came out, I could hear
the distinct sound of an exhaust leak! When I opend
the door I could smell fumes in the cab. (8 days old to me)
Warranty only covers internal engine parts.
Took it in today, and they said the exhaust bolts were broken.
Huh? I have a 1999 XJ with the original bolts! Anyway, I ended
up buying an extended warranty plan, and they agreed to fix it
for free. Otherwise would have been $425 out of pocket.
At least I have a 3 year warranty now, so if anything else breaks
it's covered. I figure with an 06 that has 67k, a lot can still go wrong.....
I've never heard of exhaust manifold bolts breaking for no good reason.
