2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT: Service and a surprise

February 12, 2009


Last week I took our Caravan in for a routine oil change. The on board computer requested it.

I drove it to Buerge Chrysler Jeep in Los Angeles because they're close and because they have an express lane that promises a quick in-and-out experience while you wait. (You know, the way it used to be before they realized they can drag an oil change out to three hours of billable work.)

It took an hour to their 25-minute claim and when I was checking out, my service advisor told me there was a recall on the power-steering hoses. They didn't have the parts in stock but they're on order. I should be getting a call sometime this week about 'em.

Total cost: $27.84
