Picking up a Trailhawk on monday!

First post here guys, so be easy on me for any stupid things I may say!
2013 Trailhawk, white HEMI
Got a pretty good deal on it and we needed a larger then our small SUV now that we have a child. For you guys that have children, how do you keep the leather from creasing where the car seat sits? My king ranch truck was getting pretty bad of it creating bad wrinkles. We have one of those huge Britax seats that are like tanks in the back seat!
Also, how hard is changing the oil? The stealership wants to charge an extra $11 a month to have it changed on location but not have to pay when it gets serviced.

I can only comment on the oil change part... That is a compete ripoff, have them throw it in or don't get it. That is over $30 for an oil change and that is doing it every 3k or 3 months... More than likely they will want you to do it twice a year which means yo are at almost 70 per oil change, they better be putting in synthetic for that price!

Re: Picking up a Trailhawk on monday!

We have these car seat protectors Amazon.com: Summer Infant Elite DuoMat for Car Seat, Black: Baby

They work well. In my wife's CRV, they fit perfectly and the little tab to pull them tight does the job. In my 335, there is no way to pull it taut, but it still does the job.

Yeah complete ripoff re servicing. I got first one free and ever since have had it changed every 5k miles and have never paid more than $20 for oil/filter changed and tires rotated. Mopar always has a good coupon available for that on its service website. Check it out...

Re: Picking up a Trailhawk on monday!

Thanks for the responses guys! I'll look into that seat cover. And another kicker to the oil changes, it has to be done at that dealership. Well I'm in the military and looking at moving before December. So I'll be paying for like 2-3 oil changes if I do the recommended 3k or 3 months. I'm just not going to do it. I was just wondering if changing your own oil was a PITA like my VW was back when I was in high school.

Re: Picking up a Trailhawk on monday!

ok, might sound stupid, but is there only supposed to be 1 trail rated badge on the drivers fender or is there supposed to be one on the passengers fender as well?

The one I saw up here only has one on the driver's side.
