Re: Jeep service costs

The Land Rover any model needs the extra warranty its SUPPOSEDLY given because of the amount time they spend in a service bay and on the rack while the tech chases all the gremlins that reside in that vehicle line.

Re: Jeep service costs

There are good and bad experiences with any brand I'm sure.

My brother is on his second Disco - no better or worse that my Jeep. We both have war stories but overall perfectly happy with our chosen vehicle - warts and all!

I saw this recently and thought no way, you can't run oil in a turbo diesel for that long, we'll have to see what the results are, but I notice there is mass confusion on the LR forums about the intervals and servicing packages. Because some engines are 12 monthly and some are every 2 years, owners of the INGENIUM engines have had 5 services booked in so basically 12 monthly services, and owners of the older ed4 and si4 cars have had only 2 services booked in, when they need 5.

Re: Jeep service costs

Just on from my recent service, here is a photo of the tyre pressures that the dealer left me with. I drove out of the yard and immediately felt that the pressures were too high - and sure enough.....

I rang the dealer and suggested they have a toolbox talk to explain how a tyre pressure gauge works.

Dealers have always overinflated tyres. It makes the steering feel light which gives the customer a good feeling as they leave. They put 41 psi in the left tyres and 44-45psi in the right tyres. You did the right thing getting up the dealer. The Cooper AT3's might have thrown them off. Many 4x4 dirt track warriors overinflate their muddies. It's an ill-conceived macho thing.

Don't know if your Coopers are LT's or not but it's advisable to run LT's a few psi more than the sticker pressure (passender tyre) because being thicker walled, they run hotter. I find running my D697's at 38psi (2.6bar) about right. I still get a little more wear on the outside but if I raise the pressure to 40psi it just feels too harsh. I see it as a matter of balancing even tyre wear with comfort. For legal reason, the industry won't say anything other than what's on the sticker.

Re: Jeep service costs

Tire pressure is always inductive of atmosphere temperatures. I find i only need to adjust mine at the start of summer and winter.

Re: Jeep service costs

Didn't give me a good feeling Bob - made me feel " holy crap - what have they done".

My Cooper AT3 are pre LT being released. The next set I get when the current ones wear out will be the LT's. I normally run at 38psi. Which I have adjusted myself.

True, there are so many variations that unless one is confined to a race track, it's pointless to get too scientific. From the start to the end of a trip, ambient air pressure varies due to altitude and barometric variation, ambient air temperatures vary due to distance and time of day but most importantly, road temperatures vary greatly from full sun to shaded by cuttings, trees and clouds.

One thing to note with your LT's. For a given tyre pressure, LT's will not carry as much load as passenger tyres. I know, it sounds counter intuitive. The point is that because LT's are much stronger, they can take much higher pressures and in that way carry more load. However, being stronger, heat build-up is greater so they need to be down rated. Here are some figures I've pulled out of the Tyre & Rim Association manual for 265/60R18 comparing passenger with LT's. The sticker pressure is 33psi. At this pressure, a passenger tyre will carry 990kg (4x that is a good way above the weight of an unloaded Jeep). However an LT will carry only 750kg (only just enough). At 38psi, the LT will carry 817kg which gives us a margin for loading). For an LT to have the same carrying capacity as a passenger tyre at 33psi, it would have to have 50psi. In defence of LT's, they are fairly insensitive to load variation as they need to be in commercial use.

Re: Jeep service costs

Not sure which thread to post this in but think this is best fit.

FYI if you're in the market to upgrade. Just got an email from Macarthur Jeep stating a 5 year/200,000 km warranty period on the purchase of all new Jeeps. I can't find the offer on their website yet but maybe they haven't updated it at the moment.

The blurb on the email says:

From now until the end of October, all new Jeep models come with a 5 year/200,000 km warranty+ whichever comes first.
This offer is exclusive to Macarthur Jeep only.


Reading the fine print, they are tacking on the Alliance extended warranty -

+The Allianz Assured Extended Warranty Insurance issues Allianz Australia Insurance Limited ABN 15 000 122 850. The term of the warranty is an additional 24 months and a maximum limit of 200,000 kilometres whichever comes first. The product disclosure statement and warranty booklet explaining the warranty Insurance features can be obtained from the Macarthur Jeep Dealership in Sydney.

Thought it was worth a mention in case anyone is looking to purchase.

Re: Jeep service costs

From reading through the threads it seems like a lot of you guys pay your dealer to do a lot of the maintenance work (not covered). Just curious on why you just wouldn't do these yourself? Not only does it save you money but it also ensures that the work is being done properly.
