I own a 14 GC which I bought pre-owned in 2015 w/ 18K mi and I have the MaxCare Lifetime warranty. Mine has the Pentastar V6 so I can't speak to the Diesel model, but I saw your vent in the 9-5 forum the other day and I was surprised (and sorry) to hear you've had so many issues. Other than the multiple recalls, I haven't really had many issues with mine (now has 52.5K mi) - hood latch replaced, passenger side window switch replaced, rear shocks - and those were only subject to the $100 deductible; in fact - the hood latch and window switch were repaired at the same time, so I only was charged 1 deductible. I should also note that I bought the Jeep in PA and live in NJ, so I'm not bringing it back to the dealer where I bought it.
Assuming your warranty has the same coverage as mine but is time- and mileage-limited, I can't see why you'd be charged out-of-warranty for this type of issue. For mine, everything is covered EXCEPT what they have listed as 'not covered'; you can download a copy of the warranty if you register your vehicle at the Mopar website to see what is 'not covered'.
So I would agree with No Snaab that this is probably the dealer's way of trying to get some money out of you.
This is the second GC I've owned and the first ('00) had a 100k warranty which I used for a few things; it's also worth pointing out that it's possible to get repairs covered from an indy shop but they have to be pre-approved - I remember doing that at least once.
