After Dan racked up some tough miles on our 2012 Jeep Wrangler, we decided it was deserving of a premature oil change and tire rotation. We swung by our local spot, Buerge Jeep.

Although it is our closest Jeep dealer, we don't use Buerge often. Less than desirable service on prior Jeeps kept us away. But its been awhile so we gave them another shot. We requested the tires be rotated left to right, figuring they ought to turn the other direction after miles of highway time.

"We usually rotate the tires on our Wranglers from front to back," explained our advisor. We asked again, "Please rotate ours left to right." Our guy said, "Ok, no problem." Satisfied, we left. And shortly thereafter the car was ready for pick up. It was quick, and a pleasant surprise from Buerge. We changed our minds about them.

Then we checked the tires. They were rotated front to back. We know, because we marked them before dropping it off. It wasn't the end of the world, but it was disappointing. Sorry guys, I don't think we'll be back.

Total Cost: $52.49

Total Days out of Service: None
