Apparently, the full tank of gas depends on the dealer, not the company. I get free lifetime oil and filter changes on my Sahara at my dealer but I don't see any threads about other people complaining that they don't get the same.

As do I. It's a great way for the dealer to get folks back in for service and then do warranty work and other stuff

BUT, you still pay for it. When I was negotiating on price, they offered to remove the "free" oil changes from my deal for $600. For customers who buy online and don't live locally, they have more room on price that way and allows them to take something away.

I took the "free" oil changes as the dealer is 1 mile away. 90k miles later, I still get my changes done there. BUT, I probably should have taken the 600 bucks.

Maybe it's just me, but that is the biggest slap in the face I've had in a while. I just spent $30,000 and they can't fill up the tank?! I told the guy if the sale wasn't finalized I would have walked.

I'm so mad right now......
Did you chisel them down to the lowest possible price and then sign the papers?

Maybe you should have played your cards right.

I would have gotten a full tank of gas and free oil changes for four years - like I got with my recent 2013 10A purchase.

You need to learn how to work the deal better... it appears they worked you.

I can't believe someone is "flaming furious" about not getting a take of gas after driving off the lot in a 2013 Jeep!

I am sure they will be starting a thread complaining about something else soon.

When I purchased my 2011 Durango in Arizona, they filled the tank and I was given lifetime oil changes. Then I moved to Idaho. When I traded it in and bought the 2013 Wrangler, they filled the tank and only my 1st oil change is free. Each dealership does their own thing. Some are generous and some tightwads.

I just got my jeep with only half a tank but was honestly so happy not getting full tank didn't bother me. I do think it should be standard though

Thats a sorry dealership right there that doesn't care about customer service. At my dealership they fill up every car & of course give it a nice detail. Not sure how many people know this also, but you get 4 free oil changes a year for the 1st 2yrs of ownership. Get a service writer at your dealership to do a VIN Inquiry & it should come up saying you get it.

Minimum service from the dealer should get minimum interest from the buyer.

Give 'em heck.

And from the Unrelated Department, if you are really flaming mad, perhaps zero gas may be the best option.

I'll be here all week.

Mine had a half tank of gas when I bought it. First vehicle I have ever bought that hasn't had a full tank. First oil change is free and free car washes for life.

I was wondering why you wish you'd taken the $600 instead. If you keep it for many years, as you apparently are doing, the free oil changes are a great deal. I figure at $5/qt for oil and at least $12 for a filter it would cost me over $40 to buy everything at Autozone and change it myself. At 4 oil changes per year for me that pays for itself pretty fast. They require me to use the service 4x per year, regardless of the miles driven, in order for the free deal to continue the following year.

And I don't know about it costing me $600 for the lifetime free oil changes. I went through the Affiliate Rewards program for the 1% below invoice discount. Plus, I bought it in another state and I saved an additional $950 off local sales tax back where I live when I registered it. I even checked with my local DMV and it is currently a legal loophole that they're trying (but haven't yet) to close.

I'm pretty sure our dealer provides the oil changes to get people to come in and then they try to sell them other services. In my case I do all of my own routine maintenance that isn't free.

was the tank half full or half empty???

.

I picked up my Sport Monday and the dealer was good enough to give me 1/2 a tank of gas.

I filled it on the way home.

I have never gotten a full tank of gas in any vehicle I have ever bought.

The dealer didn't need to give me any more to make me happy. I got the price I was shopping for.

The dealer even lined up a better interest rate [1.2%] for me than what my Credit Union [1.89%] was offering me.

They made their money off me and I got a Jeep that I will enjoy for a long time. Why would I let $25 of gas sour the high I am on right today?

Shame on you...

5 pages of posts over a tank of gas? really?

I mean yeah its nice to get a full tank but to let $70 in gas ruin the excitement of driving the coolest vehicle made seems a bit much to me.

You are paying WAY to much for oil.

The dealer charges 20 bucks for a full oil change. At 600 bucks that's a whopping 30 oil changes or enough for 100k miles. Most people don't keep a car that long, though in my case, I do still have it. It also has a lifetime warranty.

The smart bet would have been to take the cash.

Had I invested the 600 bucks it would have easily doubled in value....the oils changes are still 20 bucks.

Synthetic is $5 a quart and what I have and always will run. Dino oil is cheaper but if I'm keeping my car the extra money for synthetic is well spent IMO.

You are likely throwing all your moment away, but that's an entirely different discussion.

I'm not paying ANYTHING for oil - it's 100% free, including any environmental disposal fee. That's just what Autozone and other local auto parts stores charge for their oil.

Got my 2013 JKU two weeks ago, when i sat in it and turned it on it was on 1/4 tank, turned it off and went to do the paper work while the dealership, (Ferman of Lutz) pulled it off the showroom floor and prepped it,. when i got in to go home the tank was full. Not having a full tank wouldn't have killed me, but having a full tank on a new Jeep makes the ride home and the whole buying experience just that much better.
