2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Oil Change and Spare Change

January 29, 2013

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

The SRT8 went in for a routine oil change, but there was nothing routine about the price: $100.76. That's 65 bucks for the oil change ($49 of that to cover seven quarts of 0W-40, the other $15 for filter and labor) and $30 for a tire rotation.

That's Santa Monica prices for ya, but that's also price of ownership for the SRT8. Stomping on the pedal with an open lane makes you believe it's worth it, but fishing a Benjamin out of your pocket for an oil change/rotation still stings.
