Re: Sydney SRT Club

so pissed right now.
Car was in Jeep last week, got the drive shafts replaced (+ number of other defects from delivery).
I walked into the garage today to find this bold on the floor.
When the wife came home i look under the car and its from the tray under the gearbox. I also find 2 other bolts that were loose and i could hand tighten them.
I am really pissed with this jeep service, its been back twice already and its been a terrible experience dealing with them. And now this.
I am really looking forward to my phone call tomorrow.

Also makes me think, WTF else is there thats potential loose?

Mate that really sucks- Which dealer is it?



I hate most farkin dealers because most the time they don't give a shit and 1/2 the time an apprentice works on your gear.



I had some engine warranty done on my bike which was quite major- I didn't bother checking the oil- saw the oil light flicker later and they had put in 3.2 litres instead of 4.25- that's after major engine work. So dunce. Anyway.....

its Suttons Rosebery. Whenever i go there i get the feeling they don't know what they are doing. Theres 1-2 people that seem to want to help but overall i don't think they have a clue.

Ah- why you don't you try Leichhardt Jeep- it's not that far away from Roseberry? I've only had an oil change there so I can't really recommend them, but I haven't heard good things about Suttons either.

I live in concord so leichhardt is close by, for first service ill give them a try
Only reason ive been going back to suttons was the car had a list of things to fix from new.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Hey guys, experiencing a couple of things that some of you may be able to comment on:
A noise and feeling in the car like drivetrain back lash under brakes, seems most severe as the auto down change from 5th to 4th.
Also what appears like a resonating sound from the stock exhaust at low revs. Doesn't help that that in Auto mode it seems to think 8th gear is a good choice at 65kph. A little better if sports shift selected, but I find the down change annoying pulling up... Doesn't make for a smooth braking experience.

No- I was stuck on the Cahill Freeway going south.......WTF has happened to traffic in this city- brutal...lol

So youve had your car since Mayish- is there anything specific that might have caused the drive shaft and other issues?

I definitley have a studder when down shifting in auto mode- haven't really found it annoying, yet, and not sure of the gears but its around 4th & 5th I believe. It's not hard enough to be lash for me.

Not quite 'The Hills District' but I used Tint Wizard in North Parramatta near Bunnings on my previous car and they did a great job. There's are a ton of tinting places in Parramatta if you want to shop around.
