Maybe Aldi has a sale on alternators and they queued up with all the other dealers to snap them up

I was told the PCM was replaced with a new. However, what is in my car still looks the same, ie same old red dirt just like everything else around it from all my offroad trips. Do you think the dealer was trying to make a buck or two from me/FCA(sending the bill part of the recall)?

I was just curious. My new Jaylec has no ID on the unit itself, only on the box.

Don't worry, I'm also cynical about workshop practices, who knows what they replace (or not)? Not that uncommon for even basic consumables not being changed yet still charged for! I now ask for all the replaced parts to be given back to me (filters and other bits that were prescribed for the job). My dad used to mark the old parts and if the car was handed back with a mark still in place, they soon knew about it!!

Absolutely I'd almost say it is standard practice from them. The last time I had a vehicle serviced by them they tried charging me for $180 for rotating tires and $60 for filling the windscreen fluid, exuberant charges but it gets better because they actually didn't do either of them.

Out of warranty now and getting a bit concerned with how reliable this rig is going to be in the future, with the horrendous cost of parts and seeming lack of availability in just about everything its making me consider changing it out for something else. Problem is what to replace it with??
Almost tempted to ditch all the tech and go to a 76 series wagon or something similar, at least parts are freely available and less electrickery to go tits up.

They are a good unit tough as nails and cheap to keep running but they still command a high resale and many units on the market have high km's.

I guess that is how business works, and they will always want to make a win.

There is no way a service dept will make a profit from a 1hr labour job from a alternator recall. Fair enough, the parts not available, that is the only honest thing about it.

They had to re-coupe their costs in other ways and lending me their car etc, submitting an empty claim for a PCM replacement to FCA as part of T36 is like gold for them.

Gold!

No such thing as an honest business.

More likely someone in the dealership needed a new PCM for their personal transport and buy billing FCA as part of a recall got it for nix.
