Re: 8k mile oil change

First one free then 39.00. Expensive? Yes. Too used to seeing all the 19.95 ads.

All of the perks of getting a new car is slowing going down to nothing. I had a free oil change when I got my Jeep but that came out of my salesman pocket. With my Ford, I just got a discount on a oil change of $14.00

Re: 8k mile oil change

My pep boys gives free tire rotations, I kept looking for the catch, no catch, they did it and it cost me nothing. I couldn't believe it!

Re: 8k mile oil change

Jeep emails me coupons for $17.95 oil change and wiper blades. When I went to the dealer yesterday for an oil change, the usual price was like $32 or something, but the service manager said Chrysler is offering 4 oil changes for $60+tax which worked out to $15 per change. I went with the 4 pack and when I need wiper blades I will use the coupon and spend $17.95. I used to change the oil myself in previous vehicles, but I cant get the oil and filter and top off the washer fluid for that price.

The service manager said Chrysler is offering that package deal to help get people into the dealerships and even though it works out to $15, the deal is written up like a service contract and when the dealer sends it to Chrysler, they get paid $22. The $7 profit isnt much, but any profit is good these days.

Re: 8k mile oil change

From Mopar/Jeep. The email comes from service@jeep-email.com

I dont remember how i signed up for them, but it sends like 4 coupons in one email, 2 different oil changes (one is oil change/wipers, and the other is oil change/chassis lube) for 17.95, cooling system service, brakes, tire rotation. The coupon has my vin on it, but i only get one email but i used it for my GC and my Commander, so they dont even look at the vin on the coupon.

I am pretty sure i signed up for the emails when i got my Commander, becauseit has a dealer listed on the coupon, but i have never even been to that dealer, i think it just put it there because it was the closest dealer to me.

If you want, i can email it to you so you can see/use it. Maybe it will help you find how you can get them sent to you. Just giveme your email if you want me to fwd it to you. There isnt anyway for them to track the coupon and even if there was a way, it expires before i can use it, and they send them so often it doesnt matter anyway.

Re: 8k mile oil change

You know whats funny? I got one of these emails last night.

The bad part is that they're branded for the dealership I bought my Jeep at, which is 80 miles away from my house. I bought there due to better pricing, but I don't think driving there for an oil change makes sense.

Re: 8k mile oil change

You don't have to take it there. Mine are for a dealership in Tampa but I have never been there and I don't know how to change it. I have used them in Clearwater and Pensacola with no issues.

Me too. This dealership is quite different from what I'm used to. They give you free lifetime oil and filter changes, free hotdogs and popcorn in waiting area, free manicures, free car washes, lifetime engine warranty (as long as they do all scheduled service), free loaner car, or they will come to your home and pick up your car service it and return to your home, and all parts and service have a lifetime gurantee, plus free state inspections. All this at zero cost when you buy from them. I know I sound like an ad but its all true.

Discount Tire provides free rotations with new tire purchases.

Re: 8k mile oil change

You guys are lucky! I have just been quoted $395 for the first oil change on my Laredo 3.6. This is in Sydney, Australia, and for the record a USD and AUD is pretty much equal so easy to compare with your prices. This is from the dealer where I bought the car from new 6 months ago. Services after that are going to cost more. The 24 months/30,000 miles service is $1295.
