Re: Power steering fluid
I had the same problem with my 2012 Laredo when I bought it. Pointed it out before I left and while the mechanic was off getting some fluid I noticed the cap saying to use the required fluid that met certain specs. He came back and I asked him before he filled it up if he was sure it was the right fluid and he said yes (bottle said mopar power steering fluid). The next day I started worrying about it and researched and found out you are not supposed to mix different power steering fluids. I took it back and complained and he said they put the same power steering fluid in all the vehicles. Told him and the service manager my concerns and they printed off some paperwork that states what they use will work for "hybrid Power Steering units". I still had my doubts so I stopped at another dealership on the way home and bought a pint of the stuff that is supposed to go in it. Been sucking out the top of the reservoir with a turkey baster and putting the new stuff in. What they used may be right but I do not trust dealerships to work on my vehicles but at the time I thought hey ,it is just power steering fluid. Nearly a thousand miles put on it since then (10 days ago) and no problems.
