Re: SF Bay Area Service Recommendation
Unfortunately there aren't too many Jeep service options in the Bay Area. During the Chrysler bankruptcy the two dealerships I used for my '93 Grand Cherokee were closed (Hayward - good, Redwood City - fair). I bought my 2011 Grand Cherokee from Stoneridge, and that is where I have it serviced. They are okay but I am not highly confident in them if I have a real problem. Fortunately no significant issues to date.
I'm going to try Putnam in Burlingame (near my job) for a simple service. But I don't want to give them much business 'cause I caught them in a lie during the purchase process in 2011. Ditto for the dealership in San Jose. I can try Fremont as my next service department evaluation.
Bottom line ... others are too far for me (Walnut Creek, San Jose) and I doubt they are much better.
