Re: Servicing jeep in perth

FYI took my GC Limited CRD to Ozzie Park for a 10,000km service. Negotiated down to $430 with a loan car included. Can't fault them, haven't had a chance to really look through but seems OK.

Hi Simon,

I'd take them off you for $500 if you're looking to sell. Let me know.

Where did you buy your filters from?

Are both the oil and air filters Wesfil?

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

Hi Morles,

Is your vehicle an MY15? If you picked it up a week ago, I would've thought they'd have done all the recall updates as per thread posts.

How disappointing.

Re: Jeep service costs

Righto - if I can get my own parts then I think I'll just get it serviced from work.

Hopefully Jeep will uphold their warranty work if something goes wrong.

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

It would be pretty significant if you're a good 3-4 hours away on a road trip. Something you'd expect JGC should have picked up on by now...especially when its happening on a brand new $70k vehicle.

No, unless you're thrashing your car everyday and hard braking. Stealership being sneaky again. If in doubt, take it apart and look at it yourself or get an independent mechanic to take a look.
