I have a 2007 Wrangler Unlimited X which will be due for the 30,000 mile service in June. When I was at the dealership today getting my oil changed they quoted me around 750 dollars for the upcoming service. I realized after I left that what they had quoted me included 4WD service which I don't need (please don't hate me for not getting 4WD) so the cost should be less I suppose. Has anyone else had the 30,000 mile service done and is this price reasonable? It seems sort of high to me but since I have never had a car that needed this particular service done I don't have anything to compare it to.
Thanks for the help!
Well- it all depends on how much you're willing to do yourself.
Change the engine oil and engine oil filter, if not replaced at 3 months.
Rotate the tires.
Inspect the engine air filter element, replace if necessary.
Inspect the PCV Valve, and replace if necessary.
Inspect the brake linings.
Drain and refill the front and rear axle fluid.
Inspect the manual transmission fluid, add as necessary.
Inspect the transfer case fluid, add if necessary.
Clean and lubricate soft top zippers (if equipped).
Nothing there warrants $700. And what would likely happen is that the dealer would "find" problems that need fixed. So the $700 would just be a starting point, and probably end up with $1000 being the end result.
All of that could be done in your garage in an afternoon, except the PCV Valve. Just depends one whether you want to do the work, or have it done.
