I will be bringing my car to a dealer to perform a recall and small fix and while it is there I would like to perform other services needed at this point.
This is '11 (5 years old) WK2 Laredo X 4x4 with 3.6L engine.
It now has 30,000 miles of which 15,000 was put within last year and a half. I now drive about 10,000 miles/year mostly in city traffic.
Nothing ever broke on it. I bring it in for an oil change every 6 months to my local mechanic and he always checks everything and says no fluids need replacing. I did have engine air filter changed and cabin filter as well.
However maintenance schedule mentions following procedures:
- Inspect the transfer case fluid and change if necessary.
- Change the automatic transmission fluid and filter if
using your vehicle for any of the following: police, taxi,
fleet or frequent trailer towing (I don't).
- Inspect the front and rear axle fluid, change if
- Flush and replace the engine coolant at 60 months or
104,000 miles (169,000 km) whichever comes first.
Car has Chrysler extended warranty (Max coverage) but I am sure none of fluid changes are covered.
Is it worth requesting any of these to be performed due to age? What are reasonable prices for these services?
