The LX SRTs come with slotted rotors, not the Jeeps

Maybe you should have them jump on the forum and learn a little bit! Examples like this are part of the reason the SRT vehicles aren't given the respect they should. Many dealers don't bother to educate themselves on their own product line. It's like going to a butcher and asking for a rack of baby backs and the butcher saying pigs don't have ribs!

The early first gen LX's had non-slotted rotors, I think only the '06 actually. They switched etiher late 06 or 07+. I knew the service manager and he got the rotors swapped for me at the time.

I shit you not...the manager had no idea what I was talking about. He reponds by saying that if chrysler makes one they will be getting one in. Honestly I wasnt shocked by his response at all. The lack of knowledge and experience makes me sick.
My local dealership ask if i wanted to rotate my tires...IDIOTS

I hope that the service writers are the ones asking all these stupid questions/saying these stupid things. Some of the things posted here are just crazy and I'd expect it from an independent shop but not from a dealer. Pretty terrible. I hope their techs correct them prior to anything being done.

I was at the dealer yesterday when they told an old lady she needed 3 (three) new tires and an alignment for $1000?? She almost started crying. She bought the Grand Cherokee there and went for the free oil change.

Suggested to her to shop around before making that decision.....so she did
