Hi

Does anyone know how much it costs to change oil, oil filter, and the air filter (first service)?

The jeep dealer in Sweden wants 550$ (5000SEK) for it! :eek: It sounds crazy expensive!

$550 US dollars?
If so that is ridiculous. I take mine to the Jeep dealership and pay 85-90$ for the synthetic oil change every 5000 miles.
Oil filter should not cost that much even with the labor cost.
Air filter is so much cheaper if you buy the part and replace it yourself.

Do I have to take to a Jeep dealership? Does it say anywhere in the warranty agreement ?
I've heard that in Germany, vehicles must be serviced by a dealer--dunno how true that is, or if it appleis to Sweden.

I asked, very specifically, when I picked up my new Renegade (just yesterday!) about changing my own oil (something I've been doing for, oh, 40 years now). I was told as long as I keep good records, I'm good to go.

I'm in Canada, btw, where working on your own vehicles is a respected pastime.

Years ago in the UK you had to take your new vehicle back to the dealer. If you bought the new vehicle from Renault in York and a service was due and you happened to be in in London, then you had to take it to a Renault dealer in that area. That has been stopped. Now if you bought your new Renault in York and a service is due, then you can take it to any garage and they have to use genuine Renault parts to keep the warranty/service schedule valid. Same applies to any manufacturer, although I wouldn't like my Maserati worked on by just any old place, so I would take that to a Maserati dealer or specialist. I am Renault trained, but specialised in the older Volvos until 2007 when arthritis took over and kinda stopped me from spannering.

When I was getting my first service (in Norway) I checked the prices at three different authorized work shops. Prices ranged from NOK 3700 ($440) to NOK 6800 ($810). In addition to oil change, new oil filter and the normal service check points, the most expensive service included a new cabin filter, a new air filter and cleaning and lubrication of the "sliding surfaces" on the rear brakes. The cheapest offer did not include these items. I went for the cheapest work shop and bought the filters online at a much lower price. I will get new rear brake pads after summer (free of charge due to squealing brakes when cold) and will get them to do the cleaning and lubrication then. I am very satisfied with the cheapest work shop. They are very service minded.
