Oil Changes Included With Purchase

After I purchased my 2014 Wrangler Sport, I read on the forums here that there were oil changes included with the purchase after 2013. Nothing about this was told to me by the dealership. When I received my owner satisfaction survey from Chrysler, I noted it as a concern in the appropriate section. I was contacted about a week later with a ticket number and was assured they would follow up within a couple days. They did and sure enough I have 4 oil changes included with my purchase that can be used within a 2 year period. The rep said to simply have the service dept. run my vin and they would see this was the case. She was pretty candid in saying that the dealership will tend to leave that out when making the deal because they would rather sell me on a maintenance plan. I hope this helps anyone who is soon to make a deal on their new Jeep. Any advice on when the first change should be made? The manual says 10k or when the indicator comes on but I would think the first one should be sooner.

I bought a 2013 last year and I didn't know mine where free until I took it in to change the oil for the first time. And I always change mine every 3000 miles for the first year with any new vehical regardless of oil type.

My dealership told me specifically that "the first oil change is on the house".
So I went to a different dealership for the second one (couldn't find a filter anywhere) and they said, "you still have 3 free oil changes."
Makes me seriously question the integrity of my dealer now. But they gave me a smokin' deal on it...

Any free oil changes are based on the dealership and has nothing to do with Chrysler. My dealership does free oil changes, tire rotations, and engine warranty for as long as you own it.

Not necessarily true.

I had our first one done at 1,000 miles. I used to work in a Chrysler assembly plant and that place wasn't exactly an operating room clean environment. I wanted to purge any manufacturing impurities before they stayed in the engine very long.

And I would never wait until the oil change light comes on to change it but that's just me. Ours are free for life and it gets changed around every 2,000 miles.

I'd rather change my own oil. It isn't worth the hassle to me. JMO

I paid $120 for 12 oil changes - including oil and filter. As part of the deal, my dealer discounted the cost of the maintenance plan, so it cost me zero. They got the commission and I got 12 oil changes.

It doesn't take a mathematician to figure this was a good deal - especially since they gave me three changes for free on top of the 12 I received at zero cost. I used the first four at 500, 1500, 3000 and 5000 miles.

The subsequent oil changes will be every 5000 miles - easy to remember.

Normally it would cost me at least $60 to change the oil and filter.

I have zero oil consumption at 8500 miles, with 3500 on this current load.
