Just a 'normal' service as far as I was concerned. 24 Month/40K service..

I just double checked, sorry, it was actually $1195 for the service ($609.25 in labour!)

Mine has done that twice - once spontaneously and once after the map update. The work around is to change the country - to Australia - and then select the new state. Works on mine. Stupid, but it works.

I'm sorta' with Joe98.

Laredo: No sat nav or power tailgate to go wrong. Still plenty of gadgetry to play with. I use a Tom Tom and shift it to whichever car I'm using. Free updates, international maps, no probs. Also, I never service at dealers and pay heaps less at a Jeep specialist, and no updates to screw me up.

I believe in the law of 'distance relativity' (the greater the distance from dealers, the closer to nirvana I get).

Absolutely true. I too gave the factory nav a miss and instead use an Android tablet with Backcountry Navigator and Hema apps loaded. A far better solution for my requirements in the Vic high country. I wish the factory screen had Android capability instead.

I kind of had to have the car serviced at the dealer to get the NAV working, their aircon re gassed (leaking) and some other under warranty fixes done..

Was very surprised (in a bad) way to find out it was over $1,000. Left a bad taste in my mouth..

What also was bad was that when I purchased the car, I was told by the dealer that free maps for the 3 years service, all included. What was the shocker was to find out what the maps were 2013, and there was no updates..

How do these companies get away with this?

Because "WE" let them! It's our apathy that is the cause of our frustration. If you have it written " YOUR NEXT SERVICE IS FREE" then it will happen.. if it was verbal, then FORGET it.

Here's the eamil from Shubhra..

"Please note that the free service was offered as a goodwill gesture and an end was put on it for you to accept or reject it. As now we are way past the end date, I am unable to offer you the free service."

Looks like I didn't 'accept' in time. I didn't have a service due, so didn't take notice and just had the email from FCA saying free service...

How stupid am I to think that a 'good will gesture service' would have to be accepted and have a time frame/limit

Bit of a Piss Poor Effort from FCA. Dangle a Carrot ....with conditions & then leave you.... without a paddle.

FWIW, car serviced yesterday by my independent Jeep guy. I supplied the engine oil bought at Autobarn on one of their 30% discount sales (always buy it when on sale). He supplied everything else. Was a 90k km book service, not one of the biggies:

Labour: 132.00
Parts: 101.80
Loan car: free
My oil: 70.56 (8.4L)

Total cost: $304.36

I did put $12 fuel in the loaner as I had to do a few k's yesterday.

I need an a/c service including re-gas after Christmas, for which he's quoted $165 all up - labour, refrigerant, oil, etc.

Well worth putting in the effort to find guys like this as an alternative to dealers.
