2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Needs an Oil Change

January 14, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

With just over 18,000 miles on its odometer, our Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is telling us it needs an oil change. For a few seconds this "Oil Change Due" message appears on the SUV's instrument cluster every time we start up the Jeep's supersized 6.4-liter V8.

Its last oil change took place at 12,000 miles.

We'll hit the local dealer service department in the next few days and let you know how it goes ASAP.
