60,000 mile service

Hello to all,

I'm getting ready for the 60,000 mile service on my 01' Durango. Taking it to the dealership, what "real world" price can I expect to pay? It would be greatly appreciated cuz all my X-Mas bill are coming in and what a great time for the service to arrive. I'm so lucky! :-(

you can try a maintenance service quote thru www.partsamerica.com. i did one up for my 30k service, they quoted $800 but the actual cost at the local dealer was $742.

dakota g33k,

Thank for your posting! I just wanted to compare because it was discussed with my dealer and they quoted $1000.00 bucks for the full service. All my bills are coming in and needed to get the calculator out and ready. Yeah $742 is a pretty good price for the full and might feel better.

What in the service? You can do a lot yourself. If funds are tight, that's reason to learn how. It also does not have to go to the dealer. They are always higher.

Neil,

Dodge dealership and independent mechanics (good ones) are scarce overhere in L.A. Too many laws that govern enviromental and why Chrysler doesn't have more dealers I can't say. Man that one thousand dollar quote is ridiculous.

I wonder if anyone out their manages a dealership that can/could give me the scoop on what needs to be done?

dakota g33k,

The price you quoted was about the same as the dealership I use here in So. California as they called me after send them an e-mail asking for such a quite. That doesn't appear to be so much. I think I can handle that. Thanks for all your imput.

So that does not preclude you doing some of the work yourself.

Rimfire,

Take a look at my site, look under the maintence page. It's not as hard as you think. I have pics and info to help you along. It will save you A TON of money doing it yourself!!! If you can change your oil, you can do basic maintence.

Yes it is!!! Thanks for the compliments!!


For a $1000 I could probably fly down round trip do the work and still make a nice profit!!!

rt99three60,

I was told it includes the whole 9 yards plus the kitchen sink! Heck they even offered me a free loaner car. Now that's never been offered to me ever from that dealership. It'll take practically the whole day I was informed.
