Re: Chrysler MS 11106 compliant oil.

The Helix HX7 ECT 5W-30 is semi synthetic - does this matter? Would love to find the Ash % content compared to the Mobil.

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.

Cheers

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.

Re: CRD oil on special

Not true, probably only colours they have coming in that are not sold or have in stock.

Find another dealership.

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.

Hi Simon,

When you take your vehicle into OP JCD for service, do they provide a free courtesy vehicle for you to use?
