Me: There's a hissing noise coming from the top of the right front quadralift strut.

Dealer: That's ok it's just venting air, it's normal.

Made me think of Apollo 13 if a Jeep dealer was running the mission:

Apollo 13: "We're venting something out into space. It's a gas of some sort."
Jeep Dealer: "That's ok its just air venting, its normal"

Here is a good one. "Sir we can't fix your Jeep unless you allow the service tech to drive it 30 miles to his house and keep it there overnight and test drive it around his home, we just don't have time to test drive cars in the daytime" me: all it needs is a flash that's an RRT. Them: we need to adequately test drive the vehicle. Me: the answer is no and don't touch it ill be over to pick it up. Never went back to that jeep dealer needless to say.

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

One from facebook:

So I Own a Jeep GRAND Cherokee 2014 model & just wasted 2 hours of my night driving on a freeway because a qualified keep technician advised me that to clean the exhaust filter I would need to drive on a freeway for at least half hour. Even though the stupid car was in limp mode & is stuck in only 3rd gear, he informed me that it will fix it!

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

The v6 has electric-assisted steering with unique steering fluid that costs a fortune. The fluid reservoir dropped way below the minimum at one stage within a short period of time. It has been good since then.

The dealer says this is normal. "This fluid is thin like water and it is normal for it to get chewed up..... it will be picked up under normal servicing".

I said that at this rate it will not last until the next service. He says this is why you need more frequent servicing

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

macarthur jeep rang me today to invite me to a freedom day (some scam??) anyway asked me if I want to upgrade to a 2015? I said I am waiting for 2016 model which is going to production next month. He said that is a myth and next model upgrade will be in 2020.

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

my son just bought a jgc at a dealer in perth. it was a 'special sale event'.
when we went there we were interested but not alarmed to hear their computers weren't working. anyhow he signed up for one at a very good price-it was there on the lot. FOUR days later they phoned and said that the car didn't exist, it was actually a second hand one. so the contract just lapsed because if they can't supply the vehicle in three moths they can cancel it. of course they had lots of others they could sell him bit not quite what he wanted and generally in more expensive models.
ah yes, the things jeep dealers say.

Sounds like the bait and switch I was subjected to at Melville. Wasn't falling for their bullshot, but I bet some people do otherwise they wouldn't pull it...
