Dealer Question for WK2

We recently purchased a 2012 Grand Cherokee loaded with 5000 miles on it from a dealer that is located about 100 miles from my home. This deal was too good to pass up. My problem is that I feel uncomfortable asking my hometown dealership to service the car because I didn't buy it from them. Just looking for opinions.........

Why? They make WAY more money from service then they do selling you the car. I'm sure they'll be glad to get the business.

Re: Dealer Question for WK2

no need to feel uncomfortable. if they want your business, they'll go a long way towards earning it by not giving you grief for having bought it elsewhere.
maybe have a chat with service manager beforehand. i'm pretty sure he won't turn away a potential service customer. just remember, if you're going there only for warranty work, don't expect royal treatment.

Dear Feeling Bad If that dealer cant give you a good price go to the next. and like walt_mink said they make money on service. Hopefully it is only oil changes and minor things Bottom line, IF you like it Get it

Re: Dealer Question for WK2

It's true, dealerships make WAY more $$ on service than they do with selling a new vehicle.
