8L Mobil 1 ESP 5w30 is $108 BYO. I have difficulty finding any BYO oil filter that meets Chrysler standard. Where did you source mopar filters?

Found a deal for 3 on EBay but I didn't put them on my watch list, so will have to try and find them again, I think they worked out to about $40 ea. I will let you know when I find them again.
PS: just ordered the centre console bin from the US, have asked them about oil filters, awaiting response.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

This is an article from the latest Australian automotive news letter.




FIAT
Chrysler Group has emerged
as a top-10 player in the Australian
automotive market in little more than
18 months, using its direct factory clout
to propel Jeep into the SUV mainstream
while relaunching struggling Italian
brands Fiat and Alfa Romeo.
Sharper pricing, expanded model
line-ups and canny marketing have all
played a role in the sales growth of the
company’s collective five nameplates –
Alfa, Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge.
The mix of Italian and American
brands came together under one
management structure in May 2012
when the newly married global Fiat
Chrysler Group – a merger triggered by
the global financial crisis when Chrysler
went bust – bought back the Australian
distribution rights for Fiat and Alfa
Romeo from independent importer
Ateco Automotive and bundled them in
with the existing Chrysler business in
Australia.
At the time, Fiat’s representation
in Australia was down to just one
passenger car model – the 500 bambino
– and two commercial vehicles, the
Ducato and Scudo. Alfa had just two
vehicles – the MiTo and Giulietta –
which were reduced to double figures
in monthly sales towards the end of the
Ateco reign.
At the same time, Chrysler was
extracting itself from a previous tie
with Daimler and an ill-fated dalliance
with venture capital company
Cerberus, with Chrysler Australia
moving out from its quarters in
Mercedes-Benz Australia’s Mulgrave
head office in Melbourne to stand on
its own two feet.
Prices cuts, fresh models and an
injection of high-profile marketing re


energised
the various brands. Last year,
the Fiat Chrysler Group posted a 47.8
per cent jump in sales volume, from
22,820 in 2012 to 33,734 in 2013.
This placed the company ahead
of Kia (29,778) and Mercedes-Benz
(27,547), and apparently closing on
others such as Honda (39,258) and
Subaru (40,200).
Last month, the group’s combined
sales tally was 3113 vehicles,
surpassing the January totals of Honda
(2471) and Subaru (3051), and clocking
up its sixth successive month of 3000-
plus sales.
What’s more, its top-selling Jeep
Grand Cherokee outsold Toyota’s
dominant Prado to top the January
large SUV segment, 1359 to 1024.
So far, Jeep has led the charge for
the group, thanks at least in part to
the memorable “I bought a Jeep”
advertising campaign. It now sells
more SUVs than Ford, and is not too
far behind Holden.
Jeep accounts for two thirds of Fiat
Chrysler Group sales in Australia, with
the flagship Grand Cherokee – a product
developed alongside the Mercedes-Benz
M-Class under the now-defunct alliance
with Daimler – accounts for about twothirds

of Jeep sales.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Has Jeep aus got any position on the oil change interval in regards to the std 10k versus the oil life the computer displays?

I'm only 1500ks short of my next service for the diesel, yet the EVIC gives oil life as 58% left. Seems like a waste of $200 when the computer says yes but jeeps book says no.......

For service intervals, it is always whatever comes first, scheduled distance or time. What the EVIC says dos not come into it.
If you got to 6 months, had driven 800m from the dealer to a pub which you still had not left, and had 99% oil life, you still need to change it to cover warranty.

You can't avoid this for warranty, but to reduce your costs, bring your own oil and you'll save heaps. It was worth the effort and I also have some in reserve for top up on long distant trips or in remote locations. Have to say though, it doesn't use much oil at oil.
