Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I just returned from a routine oil change and 23 point check up for my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I am mechanically challenged so I was given the following information and quote on various items that the jeep needs. 1) Right Front Hub - $550 - 2) Rear Brakes - Contaminated with Oil from Seals - $463 - 3) Rear Sway Bar Links worn - $232 - 4) Front sway bar bushings worn $190 - 5) Thermostat leaking $198 - Then two additional items covered under warrant - Fron pinion seal and left and right axle seals leaking. Needless to say I was not too thrilled with the $1,700 estimate. I have never really cared for the vehicle which we purchased about three years ago and I now I am faced with this bill. I am up in the air on what to do in terms of the repairs. Has anyone heard of these issues or have a new estimate? I am debating looking into a new vehicle but would like some feedback first. Thank you, Randall
You need to get another estimate from an honest private shop. These #s sound very high. I have never seen even a mercedes therm cost $198...is it the gold & platinum one you can wear as jewlery after you are done with it in the car? If I have time later, I'm going to look up parts prices and post them. Also if front axle seals are warranty, why not rears?
