Re: All owners who purchased USED must read!!

I have been on that site for awhile with my 04 Pacifica. The Pacifica and now the Jeep GC both get free oil changes. All of the services are listed on the site when I check them. My Pac was in for a few Recalls and both were listed as performed in the Service area.
Definitely a GREAT SITE.

Re: All owners who purchased USED must read!!

Im sorry but your free oil changes are just "I already paid for this" oil changes... you paid for it when you bought the car. Which likely explains why you see that information, I think it has something to do with repairs performed under warranty that are reported to chrysler... otherwise information will be unlikely.

Which are included in the price YOU paid for YOUR VEHICLE ALSO if you bought it from a dealership that does this. So, We use it. I remember when I was younger when NOBODY TOUCHED MY VEHICLES FOR ANYTHING BUT FRONT END ALIGNMENTS. Now, at 65 years old, a few things have changed and I will use the free oil changes.
YOUR PEROGATIVE NOT TO USE THEM.

Re: All owners who purchased USED must read!!

Did this with my XK and my WK when they were purchased. Both had a list of service entries as well.

I am not sure what it takes for a repair to show up there but rarely is there alot of information there. Attached to our repair orders we have the vin information, all the owner info, warranty coverage, and I am assuming the same "repair" information that would be shown there and rarely is there information on previous work.
Technically/Legally the DMS provider owns the data since it is stored on their servers(this applies for Reynolds, ADP, and Arcona). However, per franchise agreement clauses 99% of dealers voluntarily share this information with Chrysler so that they are eligible for rebates and incentives for parts and vehicle sales. Keep in mind most of these clauses didn't go into affect until 05-06ish...so some of your earlier data may not be available as some dealers were "late to the game" on sharing. Alluding to the "repair" information part, that is another reason you may not have detailed info or info at all for a particular repair as the system matches RO data to a standardized LOP registry so if the dealer is using some funny custom lop it won't match correctly.
