They only service 2 or 3 other brands; Kia and Suzuki. You don't feel like just a number and everybody there is approachable and friendly and up for a chat. I only brought it in to do one recall but they gave me a loaner for the day and said they would check everything out, even TSBs. They couldn't do the brake booster recall though and said if I really wanted it done they'd order the parts to do it. It's like it was a slow day and they needed to keep the service guys busy. Very first good impression.

Although there was was no charge for the day, their prices are lower as well as they apparently don't charge the extra $100 for the oil. I'll have to check further into that.

Also, they did the Transmission Performance TSB and there appears to be no issue anymore with driving in Auto about 90kph at 2000 rpm. I was driving around today in Auto not the usual Sport Mode and she was running...and sounding, very sweet.
Radknight - I don't belong in this thread because I don't have an SRT but our Jeeps have always been bought and serviced by Narellan and we have always found them excellent and very accommodating. They did the brake booster recall on our Overland back a number of months ago when it was in for its 30,000kms service. At that time, they had about 80 of the Brake Booster part as per the recall. They've obviously used them all since that time so would need to order new stock now.

Not sure if you know this, but the dealer principal drives an MY14 SRT also. He loves it and is waiting and hoping for the Hellcat.

With what you and Radknight are saying, if Jeep Leichhardt dont live up to expectations I'd be quite happy to drive out to Narellan and get all my servicing done there- I can work while it's being done so that would work for me.

Thats good to know guys- thanks

I'm fine with that. I have it already marked on my calendar. How's 9 am for everybody. EDIT: but if we need to get there earlier to get a wash, that's fine. I'll just need to lay off the booze on Saturday night.

That's early for me on a Sunday.

I can definitely vouch for them customer service-wise. Technically, I'd hope that if the dealer principal drives a SRT like ours that the service guys better know how to service it.

From what you've told us of your experience so far, it can only get better.

Also, are you the one I was talking to on Sunday morning on the M2 with the custom exhaust?

I've been very happy with the service team at SVM in Artarmon & they and moving to Chatswood from next week for those on the North Shore.

I too would be interested in seeing what these can do and their price.
