Dealership Oil Change Costs

Curious to know what others have paid to have the dealership change your oil on your Diesels?

I just had mine done and was stunned by the cost ($233.45); will be doing it on my own next time for sure. A quick breakdown is below:

-Oil (Synthetic - Pennzoil 5w30) - 10.85L @ $15.25/L
-Can someone confirm what the actual fill volume should be? Could swear the manual states 7.7L!!!
-Oil Filter (small??) - $60
-Guy told me they are actually $100 each but gave me a deal. Is that correct?
-Labour, Misc. (BG11232 DOC / CPEX) - $52.50

Re: Dealership Oil Change Costs

Sounds like the prices in Australia,
I have had the same story on the Oil filter as well
We can by an after market oil filter (most likely made in the same Chinese factory) for $25.00
So how do they justify $60 AU dollars or up to $100 AU dollars

Just dealer rip off

Re: Dealership Oil Change Costs

fwdjeep,

Have you had any other service work since?

I am about 55% oil life and debating whether or not I go back to the dealer again to have the oil changed or take care of it myself.

One reason for hesitation is actually resetting oil life on the display; I watched a service counter guy do it at the dealership and he was having issues (maybe just didn't know how to do it himself) which meant the mechanic did it. Probably pretty straight forward yet I have read a few discussions on it in JeepGarage and not sure there was a definitive answer on sequence (i.e., #of gas pedal pumps, key position, etc.).

Re: Dealership Oil Change Costs

Just an update!

Had my truck back in for a Stabilizer Bar replacement and a leak on the motor and they called me asking if I wanted the oil changed??? When I checked before taking it into the dealership, the 'Oil Life Indicator' showed oil quality at roughly 53% (note I had put on roughly 7,000km since the last oil change). The Service contact I was talking to told me that it was due and "they do not go by the indication on the vehicle"! Really??? What's the point then to having that displayed or to identify oil quality if it does not truly represent what the condition of the oil is, or close to it???

Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - Maintenance information and schedules is the link you guys are looking for, this link will tell you refill requirements etc, always fill your engine to the highest level on your dipstick.

I just bought 8 Engine Oil Filters for my 2015 JGC SRT from the USA at a total cost including freight to Australia of $28.00 Australian each, these are SRT 05038041AA filters quoted on the maintenance link above, you guys will have to look at what suits your particular vehicle if you want to utilize the Mopar filters.

Below is the reset information for my JGC SRT

OIL CHANGE INDICATOR - RESET

The vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. The “Oil Change Required” message will flash in the EVIC display for approximately 10 seconds after a single chime has sounded to indicate the next scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon your personal driving style.

Unless reset, this message will continue to display each time you turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position. To turn off the message temporarily, press and release the Menu button. To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance) perform the following procedure:

1.Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position (Do not start the engine).

2.Fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly three times within 10 seconds.

3.Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position.

Hope this helps
