Which state Dreamer? I have just been quoted $685 for my 10,000 / 6 month service here in Brisbane. Ridiculous really. (and my car will have travelled only 6500km).

Re: Jeep service costs

Look over to the right a little and you will see Lismore NSW.

Wow $685 is the highest by a big margin that I have seen for 10,000kms/6 months.

That is ridiculous. $350 for our 10,000km service at Macarthur Jeep in Narellan (NSW).

SJandL,

Did The dealer provide quality service to your satisfaction? I would probably pay them a visit in 6 months time.

Indeed they did and handed over a 300c as a loan car for the inconvenience of having the Grand Cherokee out of action for a few hours.

Not sure how I'll be greeted given I didn't buy the car from them.

Well you can only try. Granted, we did purchase the vehicle from them and until '07 JGC had run out of warranty, it was always serviced by them as well.

I did give them notice for the 10,000km service - I think I rang and booked it in at the 9700 mark or thereabouts so they had a week or two for organising the loan car which I think is reasonable. We really did not expect the 300c though - that was a bit of a surprise.

I can only think of the oil change. But it's absolutely howling off the line....still no chip!! Nothing's quoted on my service slip but I might call them Monday as ask. They may have added a dca to the coolant to bring down its boil temp....ie anti freeze also acts as an anti boil.

Re: Jeep service costs

OK, I've been treated to Valvoline Synpower MST 5W30. Heres the spec :-

http://www.yakolda.com/assets/eng/pd...STSAE5W-30.pdf

Cost at $147 on the service sheet but just noticed my two fuel filters came to $208!!! They have the same part number so they musn't be "in line" or that would defeat the object of having two.

Valvolione Synpower MST 5W-30 ticks all the boxes similar to our favourite Mobile 1 ESP Formula 5W-30. One slight difference; Valvoline lists its ACEA C3 compliance under "Approvals/performance levels" which is unclear as to whether it is approved to the standard or simply meets it in the opinion of the manufacturer. Mobil 1 clearly states "meets". It's good to see dealers using better oils without being cajoled.
