Hi Bob,
You are right about the oil filter - it is accessed from the top, so no need to remove bash plates.
Obviously you are happy with your service price, but I have to say I've never seen an equivalent price for the oil posted. It may be worth checking what they used and if it complies with Chrysler MS11106.
It is extremely important that the CRD gets only full synthetic low ash oil compatible with an exhaust DPF and exhaust gas recirculation. Oils with high ash content will very quickly gunk up the DPF and clog the engine inlet valves and passages.
I can't recall where but I'm sure a list of complying oils has already been posted somewhere.
The ones I've checked have all been significantly more than ~$49 for the required 8+ litres.
Also see here: CRD oil on special
I supply my own to the dealer to make sure I don't get a "one size fits all" oil from their drum.
John

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

I've just checked my car.
The selling dealer has affixed a service sticker on the windscreen stating that next service is due at 5000k's.
There's no mention of that in the service handbook. Is the 5K one just a courtesy checkover, like my wifes Focus free 1500k check?

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Matty, my dealer did the same thing with the next service sticker. I haven't heard of any courtesy checks so I'm assuming it's just a cash grab on their part, and I'll be taking it in (elsewhere) at 6 months/10k km.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Guys,
Most of us Brisbanites got a free 1000km/1 month "service/checkover". Whilst this is probably more of an opportunity to meet and greet the service crew, it was complimentary.

Mines just had a 10k service, but the sticker and service report states next service at 22k that is contrary to the service/warranty terms on a CRD

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

I also had a FREE initial "service" @ 1000klm which means they hold the car for a day and pretend to adjust everything. It's also your opportunity to pointout all the faults you found.
In my case it was a perfect opportunity to get my freebies installed, such as towbar, sidesteps, recovery hook.

I can't believe that people pay that! Are there not any trustful garages that will change the oil for much less? No one changing their own oil?

....does that black cover hide the oil filter as you asked earlier?

I will when it's out of warranty. Until then, they have us by the short and curlies.
