Spark Plugs/Brake Lube/Tire Rotation - Price Inquiry

I have an appointment to go into the Jeep dealer today and have some maintenance work done. What I have scheduled is to have my spark plugs replaced (V8 Hemi 2012 - 16 plugs), Lubrication of Brake Caliper Pins, and a tire rotation.

The phone rep said the spark plugs he could do for $350 and the brake flush for an additional $30 dollars.

So total $380 + tax. Would the Jeep Garage community deem this a good or reasonable price in comparison to what you paid? I was also contemplating going to a private garage for the repairs.

Re: Spark Plugs/Brake Lube/Tire Rotation - Price Inquiry

you have to keep good documentation if you have a warranty BUT if its possible I either DIY or bring it to my trusted mechanic.


i think you will find all the maintenance details on wk2jeeps.com

if it makes sense I even buy the parts at the stealer but I suspect you will find the OEM exact spark plugs cheaper at NAPA or similar.

I tried the plugs on the wife's 2011 3.6L, fought the driver side for 2 hours. When it goes for the brake recall, they can replace those 3. Instant to see how they get the intake off so I can do it my own next time.

Re: Spark Plugs/Brake Lube/Tire Rotation - Price Inquiry

Total the repairs cost about $360. I tried to install the mudflaps Mopar sells and didn't really get it right. You can probably take from that note I am not very great at dealing with car maintenance. Anyway, the dealer fixed the mudflaps, rotated the tires, replaced the plugs, and I opted out of the brake lubrication. I think I will hold off till the breaks are squeaking or need to be replaced all together.

On my windshield the rubber that is below the wiper blades was bowing up and they ordered the part for replacement under warranty. I am at about 31k so I am pretty much trying to get everything I can in the next 1k miles while I still have a warranty.
