Re: Jeep service costs

Can anyone recommend a service centre they've found reliable in (northern) Melbourne?

I've only just moved to Melbourne and know no one.
I'm new to Jeep ownership (JGC Overland 2013 - MY2014). Left an excellent VW diesel mechanic behind in the Illawarra, NSW so now I feel lost. Reading these forums I've become paranoid about the state of mechanics and service centres that can work on Jeeps.
I'm still at 15k kms but generally do 3k (at least 2k on highway) a month so will not be long before I need that 'scheduled' 20k service.
Any advice on competent service centres around north Melbourne especially would be greatly appreciated.

PS: I'm wrapped in the Overland CRD and I'm still more than happy at having this over a VW or Toyota.

Has the service intervals for the CRD CHANGED??? I got the 10k service done last week...and the new service sticker says 20k or a year which ever comes first. Because the new date is from the date I serviced...not the buying date...

Re: Jeep service costs

Interesting.
I wrote a letter to Jeep AU asking them to provide a servicing schedule for my MY14 3.6L as the 2007 dated Service and Warranty handbook does not list it..
Para 3 was along the lines of what was the point of stamping the book provided as the service was not IAW with anything 3.6 in that book..

Got a call two weeks later with a verbal schedule however, when I questioned his schedule referenced the older 5 Year coolant that was not applicable to my vehicle IAW SB 07-004-12REV A and a few other items that did reflect the current published schedule from Jeep USA, he was lost for words. I pointed him in the direction of the published 3.6L schedule documented in 2014 GC owners manual 8th edition..

He said he would get back to me...

That was a couple of months ago.. No call yet!
If I read the Au Warranty book correctly, it is my responsibility to have the vehicle maintained IAW the Jeep servicing schedule..
So with that I said, if I don't have one from Aus, can I use the documented MY14 3.6L USA version as the approved published schedule?

Re: Jeep service costs

Might as well join in...

Any service centres you'd recommend in Perth? Bought mine at Osborne Park and taking delivery end of this year/early next year. I'm worried having heard some horror stories in WA...

Thanks in advance.

Re: Jeep service costs

No comfort available unfortunately. I'm hoping Maddington can get the job done right. Ozzy Park can blow me... the warranty job they did on my Overland dash was awful.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Jeep service costs

I can't fault their sales manager at Osborne Park, did enough to get my business after all.

I heard their service dept are woeful at best and after my sales experience with Wanneroo I wouldn't go near them even if they were the last dealership in Perth - which is unfortunate as they're the closest to where I live.

John Hughes is near my work, so they could be a possibility.

It is a pity only dealerships have ECU updates, otherwise I'd get it serviced at my work. $400 odd dollars for an oil change is outright burglary.

After the lies, excuses and drama's I got from both the Sales and Service departments John Hughes, No care, no responsibility! I wouldn't even leave my bicycle there to get serviced now.

Dropping mine off to DVG Maddington tomorrow now it has finally done 1000kmk's for its complementary check up.

After that I will be seriously looking at one of the Jeep workshops up in Wangarra for all the other servicing (SBR, Jeepkraft or Cruisin On)

I hear nothing but bad things regarding our dealer's hear in Perth, but hear nothing but praise reagrding the 3 private workshops in Wangarra that specialize in Jeeps

Jeepkraft even state on their website that they have the "wiTECH diagnostic system" which is meant to give them "full dealer level functionality. This includes the Chrysler bulletin, recall and ECU Flash Update system"
So if they can provide all the updates ect I will happily try them out even if they are a complete pain for me to get to

Re: Jeep service costs

I want to take mine to jeepkraft but they can't do any warranty work which sucks, cause I need my water pump replaced.
