Dealers at work....
This is not Jeep related but thought to share anyways. Yesterday took my wife's Acura to an Acura dealer for a recall. Since her car has approx 180K now so I asked them to do a safety inspection as well. The guy called me from the dealership and listed few items that needed doing. One of those things was replacing battery. The guy said that battery failed the test. I told him No to everything.
I brought the car home and the battery failed test was still bugging me so I decided to call BCAA (AAA/CAA). The BCAA guy came and did three separate tests and all tests were fine. He said that its upto me if I still want him to change the battery but he doesn't see any issues with the battery. He said that I can get another 2 years at least out of it. So I called the dealer and he started talking in battery jargon and said that their tests showed it failed.
BCAA guy explained that if his readings (volt?) were below 9 then it is a problem. But all three test showed a lowest reading of 10.8 which tells him its fine. Can anyone explain what he meant by these numbers?
I thought to share because people often complain that Chrysler dealers are not honest but I guess its most dealers in general. I wonder if there is such thing as honest dealer out there.
