2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: 20,000-Mile Service Performed
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on April 14, 2016
As we wrote recently, our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk has cruised past 20,000 miles on its odometer. Around the same time, the Renegade's driver information display posted a notification that we were due for an oil change (the Renegade's service interval is every 10,000 miles).
I therefore dutifully booked an appointment at my local Jeep dealer.
When I arrived at Fresno Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (there's a mouthful for you), I met up with my service advisor. The interaction was pleasant enough. From briefly glancing at the owner's manual, I couldn't tell if more than an oil change was required. Specifically, I was wondering about a tire rotation.
Our Renegade's service advisor recommended a rotation every other service interval. Since I didn't know what happened at the 10,000-mile service, we checked out our Renegade's tires. The fronts had more wear than the rears, so it seemed prudent enough to have a rotation done at this 20K service.
The service took about an hour and a half and then I was on my way. Everything checked out fine on the included vehicle inspection, too. Overall, it was certainly a more pleasant experience than the last time we were at a Jeep dealer.
Total Cost: $97.35 ($27.17 labor, $64.85 parts)
