Not everyone has multiple dealership options in their area. My local dealer has been incompetent on several occasions and I won't be returning. The next closest Jeep (Chrysler) dealer is 73 miles away, from my home.I use it and I like to do all my own maint. It's a FREE program that saves me hundreds of dollars. HELL YEAH I'm going to use it! I don't understand all these people who don't. Are you really that paranoid your dealer won't fill the correct amount of oil, or the right kind? Go to a different dealer! Don't give fools your money!
73 miles at 18 miles a gallon is 8 gallons of gas,Round trip,and a couple hours of wait time plus travel time. I'm with you, I'll pick up 5 quarts of oil and a filter at Walmart for $36 bucks and change my own oil in 10-15 minutes. It's just way too easy to do it on my JL.Not everyone has multiple dealership options in their area. My local dealer has been incompetent on several occasions and I won't be returning.

This is exactly my problem. it's not so much the dealer, just the environment. They've done alright by me, so I want to support them. They're just not in the best area. Their building is going through some updates though.I didn't even bother with signing up. My closest dealership isn't very nice to lounge in either
This is brilliant, and sounds like the way to go. There's a decent diner across the street from mine, maybe when I go in for the Clutch recall and some other stuff I'll do that. Thank you for the idea!The free oil changes and tire rotations are worth it for me. Saves me the hassle of doing it myself
I normally take it into my dealer first thing on a Saturday, get a coffee, and relax for a bit. They have leather recliners and I watch tv on my phone for the 30 min or so it takes them. If I had to pay I would just do it myself as it would take me the same amount of time and half the cost. I do the changes on my motorcycles and jet ski myself so not adverse.
Also since there is a cracker barrell next to the dealer the wife, kiddo, and I will go to breakfast while it is changed.
That's awesome Nick. Please let me know which dealer you use.Same here. The dealer I go to is well run. The work is done professionally, correctly and quickly. Waiting around is not bad either. They have comfy furniture, TV, internet, etc. The dealer also offers complementary water, coffee, tea, soft drinks, fresh baked cookies, popped popcorn, homemade ice cream, and a couple of different topping pizzas. You could probably eat up half the cost of a oil change once the free Jeep Waves oil changes and tire rotations expire. LOL.
