15,000 mile service scam?
I just took my 2011 GC Laredo for its 15,000 mile oil change. When I talked to the service lady she told me that it was time for them to replace the filter, transmission fluids, and some other things. All in all $440 dollars.

I told her thanks but no thanks. Just the oil change.

My question is, are all the 15,000 mile procedures they want to do necessary? My vehicle is a LEASE. I only have it for two more years. If I don't do it is it going to cause me problems or should I be able to get away with it?

Yep -- big scam. It won't do any harm (except to your wallet), but you only need to follow the manual. You'll want to check both air filters (cabin + engine), but you can easily DIY.

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate. It sounded sketchy when she explained it. My fault for not going to my normal jeep dealership. Wont be making that mistake again.
