2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Second Oil Change

November 06, 2012

With over 12K miles on the clock, our SRT8 was asking for some new oil. No problem, the local Jeep dealer is right down the street, how hard can an oil change be?

Turns out, as simple as it should be. I was skeptical since this dealer has never been very prompt when it comes to repairs, but this time Buerge Jeep got us in and out without much hassle.

I pulled in without an appointment at around 9:30 and told the service writer I wanted an oil change and nothing else since we had just mounted new tires. He asked if I wanted to wait for it or come back later. I had already arranged a ride so I told him to just call when it was ready.

About an hour later he called and said it was ready to go. The total was $70. That's for 7 quarters of synthetic oil, a filter and labor. A little expensive, but for a $65K vehicle, not that bad.
