Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I can say the base cost for this service is $450. Anything on top of this is cream to the service department. I supplied my own oil and had my service completed for $335.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I had this issue a few months back, but it seems to have self resolved itself. I have had a 20000 km service since and mentioned it. They said that there was no info on this issue yet.
