20,000km Service- MY14 Laredo CRD

Just had my 20,000km service done by Frankston Jeep. Reasonably happy with the total service costs. $428 in total That included a wheel alignment and brake test for $26. All wheels OK.
I supplied my own oil filter, theirs was $80+ and the Ryco was $32, go figure.
The oil (Jeep Low Ash 5W30 - 9 litres was $158)
Had to instruct them to at least fill in the Service Book this time, didn't for the 10,000km service.
Updated the U Connect.
Had issues with increased fuel consumption in city driving and towing.
Transmission changes had become unstable.
They applied all current TSB's.

Took it for a test run along the freeway and it was an improvement in performance. Too short a run to test for economy.

Provided a fancy wheel alignment sheet with photo of own vehicle and time photo taken (For evidence I suppose)

Will hook the van up in 10 days so the proof will be in the pudding.

You're the best bitch for the job Snuke, so let it rip!

Actually, I was hoping you had a couple of verses for us.

Thanks for the reassurance. That was my only negative towards the car - now i know its normal, i love it even more
Amazing how a little knowledge can turn a negative into a positive.

I've only had the car 6 weeks and I'm sick of that song too.

(Is there a forum rule about it that I haven't read? Should there be one?)



I found another "Potbelleez" song that they could have used in the marketing.
titled: "Trouble, Trouble" , goes like this,

"We are trouble trouble, trouble trouble
Oh oh!

Time to wake up, Mr. Black<hawk> Man
We got to get this show on the road <driving at highway speeds>
You got to bed two hours ago, its such a state
But hurry up we're late! - have to drop the car off for service at 7am!
Destination and a key, with no grip on reality

Here we go now, no return
The trouble starts here!

We are trouble trouble, trouble trouble
Oh oh"

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

6 weeks! My god man! Many of us have endured a year and a half of all and sundry dickheads parroting "you bought a Jeep" to us. Thankfully that's almost run out of steam now...

Now no more lyrics, OK?

Thankfully the novelty of that wore off with the family, friends, work colleagues within a week or 2.

No more song lyrics, I don't fancy getting bitch slapped

I live < 1km from a really nice boat ramp on Port Hacking but don't have a boat.
Wife gets seasick, have a caravan instead, it probably doesn't float, she won that one.

How do you know it won't float? You won't know until you try. The boat ramp's just down the road waiting for you......

Ha! I made the mistake of wearing my Jeep cap (the dealer gave me) to the playground with the kids. Had about a dozen smart arse 10 year olds running around saying 'he bought a jeep' over and over.....
