I'm sure it's what you meant, but it has to be Ultra-Extra otherwise it won't meet spec.

Unless you have warranty work, go to a local mechanic, as you only need logbook service not dealer gold plated bullshit service.
Jeep cannot dishonour the warranty if you do not get it serviced with them.
Yeah you're right and I agree and will most likely dump the dealership service for the 20k given Salter's Moorooka (Brisbane) did such an outstanding job on the 10k service .....but

.....what about the updates? Even a great, trustworthy local mechanic will tell you he can only go so far and you'll have to go to Jeep for something...

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Just do what I did with my Ford. Take it to the dealer for warranty and ECU updates. They may charge you $100 for the updates, but unless it fixes a major problem, doing an annual ECU update should be more than enough.
Ford used to do the ECU update FOC when they were replacing the diff bushes every 6 months.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Well I just complained to my dealer about the difference in servicing cost from that charged from Sydney dealers.

To my surprise they matched the $350 cost, down from $550.

I know that this is still expensive for what is getting performed however in the ball park of what I was expecting.

Just shows how some are being ripped off!!

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

You can believe, even at $330 you are getting ripped off. At $550, they were simply getting you to pay for their holiday house with the excess
There is so much margin in servicing, it is little wonder why they can offer 10yrs warranty providing you service exclusively with them.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Getting the service tomorrow, call if sceptical if you like but what's the best way to confirm the filter is replaced.

Thinking of marking some part of the filter housing, but it reasonable tight in there..

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

There is no easy way to tell being a cartridge filter. Just check the dipstick afterwards and the oil should be nice and clear. you could also use a dot of nailpolish right where the cartridge meets the motor, so you will see if the seal is broken, but now we are just getting paranoid.

Thanks Enforcer, yes paranoid but I'll be doing that as the dealer doesn't care a gnat about my engine...

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

I was told $440, from Nepean, including loan car. For 10,000k service,
Good? Bad? Average?

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

$440 for a 10K seems to be the going rate, the load car is a bonus and take the heartburn away for the $440!

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

The nailpolish has been used on many different things to check if it has been removed. I have caught out many different places for work they did not perform.
Glad you got a good result and a better price. Pity Dealers are trying to rip off us owners. If they want to charge Euro service prices, they should provide a service level of Euro dealers. Anyone here who has owned a Euro car will know the level of service is a significant step above the Jeep/Ford/Holden places.
