Just had my 10k Service done at Parramatta Motor Group.

Initially quoted $510 for the service. Supplied my own oil (Nulon 5W-30 from SCA)and a voucher from Mopar for a free Oil filter. That brought the price down to $296. Factor in the price of the oil and it came to $405 all up. However, as they were fitting the front tow hook for free and taking out a small dent in the bonnet that was there on delivery, I couldn't really shop around this time.

Will be shopping around for the next service though.

Still, my previous car, a petrol Mitsubishi Outlander V6 was around $1100 on average to service so $405 for the Jeep is a bargain comparatively speaking.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

So should I take it in at 10K / 12K or wait for the service light? The manual seems to suggest the latter.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Quoted $550 for 10k at Albion. Sister workshop's quoting $450 and Hammonds $420. Any Brisbanites got a better price around town. I'm not overly concerned with the TSB's as yet as I will probably get them done when the dashboards ripped out to access the TXV.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

When you get your new sticker on the window is it 10 or 12k difference. I had mine serviced on Monday and the new sticker states next service is 12,000km away. Wasn't sure if they changed it or not.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Oh...and on a serious note, make sure you guys with dark colour cars stipulate you don't want the workshop numpty to wash your car. Son's jet black wrangler came back today from being repaired and looks f$%^ing shocking. Must have been washed with dirty water and a brillo pad. Disgusted 2500kms on it and it looks 10 years old.

Seems that Macarthur Jeep in Narellan is the go for dealer servicing in Sydney. Other owners have stated less than $400 for the 10k. Cant remember if it was $350 or $380. Something like that anyway.

Albion!! Can't knock the repair though even though its taken a few months and the guy in service is extremely courteous. Looking forward to a work out this weekend with a tub of California Gold and a couple of coldies.

I always wash my vehicles before they go into the shop for a couple of reasons:

1) If it looks clean, they won't try and wash it.
2) Even if you tell them not to wash it, sometimes the message doesn't trickle through to the lad out the back with the hose and a broom.
3) By presenting the car pristine inside and out, maybe, just maybe, they will think and take a little better care of the vehicle as it shows that you do.
4) Should they cause any bumps, scrapes or marks, they will be clearly evident. (I always walk around the vehicle before I drive away from the shop).

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Thats is the advice I have always followed. The bonnet has obviously been hinged right back to rest on the front windscreen surround (As you can do on a Wrangler) whilst they replaced parts trying to identify a fix and has left a beautiful scuff mark that won't buff out....Because the cars been sat at Jeep for the past several weeks waiting parts I doubt it was looked after. All part of the learning curve.

Re: 10,000km Service CRD

Just jumped in the jeep for a quick drive and after 20m the tyre pressure waring light went off, i thought i may have had a flat tyre but when i checked they all looked fine, got the gauge out and checked them and 3 were higher than normal pressures, the friendly people at jeep serviced the car last week and told me they check the tyre pressures, i will be sending them an email thanking them for putting 43psi in 3 tyres and leaving one at the normal 33psi.

Cheers Jeep, good work.

My thoughts as well; for all the same reasons. Our vehicle is always presented spotless, and with previous vehicles they have all been returned the same way.
