Wasn't there some fairly negative feedback re Albion??
As IBAJ says, they all seem bad up this way, its just degrees of badness.

Albion seem to get stuff fixed, Mansfield and Moorooka seem to be the worst at fixing stuff, ie. know nothing about TSBs and won't apply them if you ask.

But for just an oil change, hopefully they can't stuff that up.

I decided to book at mansfield for the intermediate oil change, then might go to Albion to get the 20k 12 month service and some tsb updates for the transmission.

Its more than just an oil change, they check your tyre pressures too.

A quick glance at the tyre pressures as they scroll through the EVIC to check that they have reset the oil life monitor correctly..

Re: Jeep service costs

I agree that the time intervals are a load of crap (as long as it's not more than 12 months or so). This is my second Jeep and I've never had any problem at all regarding warranty claims even though my time interval is about 9 months on average.
Now that I think about it - maybe that's why Albion increased my service prices substantially - to get back what they were missing for my increased time intervals.

I don't have an issue on components having a maintenance policy that is calendar based if the manufacturer requires it.
What I find absurd is Chrysler LLC has maintenance intervals that are current and applicable to the items fitted off the production line (10 year long life coolant, 160,000km spark plugs ect), yet when shipped to AUS an out dated 2007 maintenance policy is applied, in the case of the 3.6L we don't even get that documented in our books.

I can imagine Qantas buying new A380's from Boeing, that have a wing servicing policy of 12 months. Then saying we should pull them pull them out of the air every 6 months in AUS to service the wings, as that's what we did with the old Boeing 707..
