Dosen't really seem to coincide with Chrysler's recommendation for 8000 mile oil change intervals.
Yeah its a recommendation not required i was told. I called them when I saw the sticker and was thinking WTF. I said the same thing and then when the customer care called me I gave them a 1. But I found the coupon and tax should be paid by them so I'm getting my $2.99 back.
For now on I will only be going to dealer with the service manager who actually tells me the truth. Its funny but this guy is very honest and tells me when stuff really isnt needed and what is over priced to the point when I should do it myself.
