My first Dodge. Nice ride and no issues so far. 30,000 miles yesterday.
I was curious about the spark plugs and decided to join here. I have not done anything to my truck except de-badge it.

I paid $70.00 for 4 oil changes and 2 tire rotations. I have an extended warranty also.

I got two quotes today.
The first dealer (the one I bought from and have used since it was brand new) came back with a $1200 dollar quote!

I called back and they had many things on the quote that did not need to be done.
I told them I only needed the plugs, oil change with filter and air filter.
Cannot believe they wanted to rip me off.

The second dealer answered the phone and told me right up front exactly what I said above. Just a few bucks more, but did not try and take me for more money and services I do not need yet.

When I get there tomorrow, (first original dealer) I am going to tell them this and ask them if they want to continue to get my business, they need to be more truthful and actually look at whats required in the maintenance schedule.

Not real sure if it was a mistake? Or an attempt to perform more work than the schedule requires? I asked for a quote on a 30,000 mile scheduled maint? No more no less. What do you guys think?

Crooks or mistake?

^without specifically asking for something you really left it up to them. Kind of like asking a contractor to give you a quote on an addition to your house and they quote you $1,000,000 for an addition that takes up your entire property. You didn't tell them exactly what you wanted. A "30k mile maintenance" service is very ambiguous.

Bought my 2009 QC SLT used in October 2010 with around 36K miles on it. Three years later I've got around 108K miles on it.

- I bought it with the rear window motor not working. A month later and three trips to the dealership later, they fixed it under warranty.
- New tires in March 2011
- Both tails lamps have blown
- Third brake light started leaking last year so I sealed that up and replaced the lamp.
- More new tires in September 2012 (it may just be all the driving I do, but I can't seem to keep the tires up to par).
- Had all spark plugs changed at the beginning of 2013.
- New battery two months ago.
- Parking brake handle broke. Replaced that two days ago.
- Pinion nut recall done today.
- Front and rear brakes done today.

Oil is changed, tires rotated/aligned every 3-6K miles. I also have a K&N drop-in that I clean every once in a while. I'm running behind on the transmission flush and such, but I'm going to get that and some other things done next month. All in all, this truck has been good to me. Last year I started remodeling our house and have loaded her up with A LOT of heavy loads. It's just a great truck!!

You use your truck for work? Thats crazy high km! Mine is 09 and I only have 86xxx kms. Which is just below average of 20000 a year.

But glad to hear that she'll still be great when I get up to that point!

I.ve got about 50k on it. Had a couple of recalls, no big deal, all cars have recalls these days. trans did act funny for a little bit, but problem went away before I could get it to the dealership. Passenger rear door lock works when it wants to. Oil changes and that's it. And the only thing I had to buy was 2 tires. the other tires are on the rear but still above 2/32". Drive it every day and still love it!
