Transmission line recall, should be your priority!!!!!!!!!!

Don't allow your Dealer to suck you into all of this checking and then charge you for it. This is how they make their money!

Water pump replace, only if it is noisy, or leaking. Warranty, if applicable.
If your hand brake is holding, and is not at the end of its travel, then it doesn't need adjusting.
As for the fluids, that varies depending on your environment and how hard you drive it. Follow the guidelines of your owners manual, and you will be good to go, but I prefer to change my engine oil more often then they recommend. This is just a matter of preference.
The engine oil and filter, I would change if using conventional oil, every 3,000 miles, or using synthetic oil, every 5,000 miles.
Check your air filter when changing your oil.

Beyond this, get into a routine of checking your engine oil level and coolant level weekly, or at least at gas fill ups.
Check your tire pressure once a month when cold in the morning.

As for the rest, just follow what you owners manual recommends.

Have them check the muffler bearings and check the blinker fluid level.

There is no such thing. Just like there is no "blinker fluid". It is a joke.

yes its first service 11km (first service is at 12k) its 2012 model, purchased in Jan 2012.

they did first service and I reported the water pump and transmission line recall and they said ok we will order the parts and call you back this week, they put a rubber around the line until the parts arrive.

I asked if they heard about the tick engine issue, they said yes but this issue is mainly affecting jeeps sold in NA since the oil and gasoline used there along do not do good for the new engine and they had to redesign, he said I should not be worried about it since this is not an issue here..

FYI they use here MOTORSYNTH FE 5W30 engine oil.

X2^^^^^, just make sure that you use SYNTHETIC OIL in the muffler, because it has a tendency to be more stable at higher temperatures...................:

Other than problems/issues/recalls, all you should need is an oil & filter change. Although, tire rotation would be a good thing to do also.

Absolutely...........OP going into a dealership with the kind of list you posted is a gift for them and a very expensive bill when you go to pick up your Jeep.

@ 12K that Jeep shouldn't need anything else. Aside from Warranty items and maybe an oil change and tire rotation I doubt you need anything else.

I would think it would be the same Pentastar based motor for petrol over there - however - I know there are a lot of changes due to EU safety and pollution but I don't think this would solve the tick issue or someone would have leaked that as a solution for the tick a long time ago. They did redesign the head though, that's why there's a AA, AB, and AC head.

The water pump is a known issue - not sure if it's a TSB or recall though, I haven't gotten any notices.

I'd have them swap the water pump if it's an issue, if it's ok, no need to do it. Does it have the chirp?

The transmission line is a recall, do that as soon as your dealer can get parts, wrapping it like you did will keep it ok right now.

At 12km you should only really need an oil change. Make sure they change the filter too and use 6 quarts of oil. I'd check it to make sure it's ok on the dipstick before leaving the shop.

The differentials can be done now, or they can wait. If they haven't been contaminated I would wait until 24,000 km or so before doing it. Your owner's manual should give you more information though, I don't know what kind of conditions you are driving in all the time.

The air filter you can do yourself, just pop the tabs loose on the airbox and check it. It's probably ok, but that depends on how much you drive in dust, sand, debris.

The hand brake you can check yourself too. Park on a small slope with room to move and put the Jeep in neutral while stopped. Pull the handle up on the emergency brake and take your foot off the brake to see if the Jeep rolls down the hill. If it does, it needs adjustment, if it doesn't, then you're good.

You guys are cruel but I laughed my tail off at some of those responses. It does appear that the OP has a good sense of humor. Being that English is not his first language I give him lots of credit. I can only imagine if I was asking questions on a forum that spoke anything BUT English. They would be tugging my chain too. I still like the muffler bearing! 'Sorry for not really contributing much to this but I appreciate the humor.

Next time you go to the dealer you should ask your "Service Rep"

"I heard there is a recall for the muffler bearings?" Watch then look it up in the computer....

OP, your Dealer will always take good care of your money!
If you noticed, I didn't say Wrangler, but rather money.
Just give him a lot of money, and he will want to retain you as a long term customer!
