Got my DRL's working again.
Could not fault the steering, as my car already had the 1/2 shaft. I can feel a slight clunk through the steering wheel when stopping
Couple of problems.
They carried out a wheel balance and wheel alignment, without request.
They broke my ACC/FCW. It was working fine when I dropped the car off and it has never been a problem. When I picked it up they said it would take several weeks to get the part in. So now we have FCW OFF on the dash for the next x weeks.
Total service cost was $282 inc GST (alignment and balance $92)
Hey Enforcer, why didn't you let them change your oil? I know back in the 70's / 80's Sol used to say, "oils ain't oils" but wouldn't Jeep only use an oil specified for the CRD? Are you using something different, why, what's the benefit?
Your service cost if very low compared to quotes up here in Brisbane which are approx $400-$450 but I guess that would be less oil and filters.
I've also had the start issue twice, not good when you're in a hurry. It's almost like it's experiencing a brain freeze. All I did was switch everything off, took a few deep breaths and away she went again. I'll add it to my list for the first service.
