There is nothing inherently “wrong” with these vehicles as the issues that are known for common failure on these cars are common on many vehicles. The issue lies in the costing of the parts needed to repair and maintain these vehicles. We have covered the common things to look for in this article here.
In more recent times Jeep has acknowledged this issue and has actively reduced the cost of its parts making the vehicles more affordable. We have covered that extensively in this article here.
This however has little effect on the cost of the servicing of the Jeep as long as no additional repairs are required.
One money making tactic many dealers practice is the service A and Service B or service quote based on kilometres. This is deliberately confusing for the customer and is how you end up with bills exceeding $400 you were not expecting.
In all cases with ehe Jeep range of vehicles, GDL will carry out a basic service regardless of what the service book advises. From here additional items are quoted based of manufacturers service recommendations and our technicians recommendations. This removes any of the expensive service bills that come as a surprise to many Jeep owners.
The Cost of the Basic service on a Jeep Grand Cherokee will fluctuate depending on your mechanics hourly rate.
According to Valvoline.com.au (our preferred supplier) the Grand Cherokee 3.0 Diesel engine takes 7.2 litres of 5W-40 MST ( a full synthetic engine oil) for some this is just jargon but it basically means a large amount of relatively expensive oil is needed.
Through GDL Automotive the cost of the basic service with the changing of the engine oil and filter is $326.00 including GST. (AUD)
Note: The V8s and the petrol V6s are a fraction cheeper as less oil is used.
On the day of your service any advised additional items advised will be quoted and the owner contacted for approvals. You will never come to pick your vehicle up from GDL and have a “surprise” at the cost of the service.
