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
that's awful. idk what shop sells 3 tires instead of 4. especially on a sensitive 4WD vehicle such as jeeps. the only time i ever take my vehicles into the dealer is for warranty work, otherwise i do all my own work. in my opinion you're much better off searching yelp and other places for a good mom n pops shop. they usually won't take advantage of you and their rates are much less than the standard $100+/hr from the dealer.
When I was still under warranty and had service done at the dealer, they tried to charge me for tire rotations on 2 different occasions. Both times I had to explain to the guy at the counter why this needed to come off the bill. Same guy twice and he's worked there forever. Haven't gone back since my warranty expired.
^^^What Ekaz said^^^^
Mines under warranty but to this day I have not gone to the dealership for anything, I'd rather know I did it right myself. Although she will be going in soon for a tranny flush, damn stealerships!
I had an issue with my sunroof and the sales men goes "I love how the new SXTs have the headlights painted to match" I really do too, I told the man. My 2011 is a limited edition SRT. Hahaha he was looking at my 1st set of headlights from Dan.
But come on man. SXT??? And he didn't say anything when I told him it was a 2011. So I found a new place to go to that my warranty will still cover for the sunroof....
Ya the first time I took my Silverado SS to the dealership , they were telling me how cool it was that these trucks came supercharged from the factory. I couldn't believe this guy, really whipple supercharger from the factory keep dreaming.
