Yes I got a loaner GLK every time I went in. I got free pads and rotors under warranty once too but I didn't have free maintenance.

I am just saying on a Diesel SUV like I had, the total cost over ownership is lower before I add in the maintenance. Even if I added a rental car for each service visit it would even get close.

If the Euro companies charged the same service rates the do across the pond it would be fine bit they screw you on everything.

Eg. Ad blue tank is 2/3 full (I drive a lot of highway at higher speeds). What does the Mercedes dealer do, charge you for the entire tank and there is no ad blue bottle left in the car afterwards.

When it really gets down to it a JGC will cost less to own an operate. I worked it out, in 5 years of regular maintenance on an ML I can buy a new 8 speed tranny for the JGC. Maintenance should out weight replacement parts.

Flashback or nightmare? They do the C Major vs D Minor thing with you too ??? I felt Like I was in Public school music class!

As much as I didn't Love my Yukon the way I did the ML, from day one I knew what I was going to pay for service at regular intervals. The Mercedes... Roll the Magic Dice!

New GLK250 has no spare tire--only run-flats in the US.

Oh. Burn.

Did you pay for the tires on your jeep? Couldn't you have sourced them cheaper on your own?

How much did my brake replacement cost me? And the oil changes? And the loaners? Zero. You can't get a BMW without free service just like you can't buy a jeep without tires. There is always a cost for everything. But whatever man. I've read enough of your posts to know how you roll.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I bet I could cut a "deal" with my dealer to provide "free" maintanance on my future GC CRD.....65k out the door.

Let's be real....nothing is free. Ever.
