At about 18,200 miles, our JGC SRT8 let us know it was due for an oil change via a reminder in the instrument cluster.
We've put nearly 19,000 miles on the SRT8 and the outside driver thigh bolster is starting to show it.
With just over 18,000 miles on its odometer, our Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is telling us it needs an oil change.
We'll hit the local dealer service department in the next few days and let you know how it goes ASAP. We are nine months into our long-term test of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and the SUV just turned 15,000 miles. Ride quality complaints led us to swap out the stock summer tires for a set of Sumitomo HTR Sport all-season tires. December 03, 2012 If brake dust covering your front wheels is on your deal breaker list, then a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is not your ride. I'm not saying the brake dust is a deal breaker for me, but having dirty wheels just a few days after a car wash is frustrating. I pulled in without an appointment at around 9:30 and told the service writer I wanted an oil change and nothing else since we had just mounted new tires. We've been living with our long-term Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 for about six months and we've driven it over 11,000 miles.
September 18, 2012 Wouldn't you know it -- very early in a long-distance towing trip in our longterm 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, the oil change alert sounded. We caught some flak after getting our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8's oil changed after only 3,000 miles, so we're expecting an equal amount here when you find out that we went ahead and did it again at 6,000 miles. The first oil change was done early in part because of our driving habits over those first few thousand miles and with the full intention of getting it done again at 6,000. Like the first, this service was done at Buerge Jeep (by far the closest dealer to us now that LaBrea Chrysler Jeep moved out of my neighborhood) and cost us $147.63.
I've now scratched my hand a couple times getting stuff out of the backseat of our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 on the driver side.
We drove to Buerge Chrysler Jeep without an appointment and asked for an oil change and tire rotation.
At the end of another night of indoor rock climbing, my girlfriend slipped and twisted her ankle. With every dip, rut, pothole and intersection, the stiff SRT8 suspension transmitted the jolts right into the cabin, and, right into her ankle. In this rare instance, the Explorer, Audi A8, Jag XF and Infiniti JX would have been better, but it was too late to switch cars.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 might weigh 5,150 or so pounds, but you'll be glad to know it packages its heavy battery low and toward the middle of the vehicle. Seems like an odd place for a vehicle which puts a priority on ground clearance -- at least in base trim.


Our 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 takes a different approach to engine break-in than our Subaru Impreza.
You can get to this by removing the plastic shield under the engine, 4 torx screws on either side. Photos, stories, information or other material may not be copied, reprinted or reproduced without written permission. Granted, we've had bodies of all shapes and sizes sliding in and out of this seat for 19,000 miles. That's 65 bucks for the oil change ($49 of that to cover seven quarts of 0W-40, the other $15 for filter and labor) and $30 for a tire rotation. For a few seconds this "Oil Change Due" message appears on the SUV's instrument cluster every time we start up the Jeep's supersized 6.4-liter V8. Dealer visits at the prescribed 6,000-mile and 12,000-mile intervals mark the extent of our maintenance history. The more aggressive brake pads used on the Jeep, as well as all models from BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Porsche, are notorious for this.
I was skeptical since this dealer has never been very prompt when it comes to repairs, but this time Buerge Jeep got us in and out without much hassle. And over that time we've had only one consistent complaint about the high performance crossover, its ride. The Jeep's stock Pirelli P Zeros are run flats, and we think they are a very large part of the problem. The Sumitomos are cheap ($175 each) and we're curious how they will perform compared to the much more expensive Pirelli's. We'll let you know soon after if this was a great idea or a complete waste of time and money. We'll take care of it in the next week or two and update you on the dealer experience and the cost.
Right upon startup there was a chime and the display above that flashed up in the instrument cluster. We've tested this Jeep, towed with it, driven it hard and otherwise exploited every one of its 470 horsepower. The advisor offered some resistance, "Ok, but we don't usually rotate the tires this early." We asked him to rotate them anyway. It's really not all that stiff when you're just driving around, but when you have to drive like there's a bomb on a mercury switch in the back seat, it feels like a skateboard.
Rest assured, Chrysler doesn't have you digging around under the passenger seat should your Jeep need a jump. As always, please reference or check with your reseller or service department for accuracy. I'm not sure if it has the same effect as taking your thumb off the top of a drinking straw loaded with liquid, but that's the theory I'm operating under.


As I went to drop off the car, I steeled myself for the task of fending off a bunch of unnecessary additional "dealer recommended" services. That's a lot of denim, twill, rough cotton, linen, hemp, silk, satin and bare skin (nothing wrong with driving naked now and then) passing over that patch of leather.
The Jeep's front wheels are already covered in brake dust, which makes them look darker than the vehicle's rear wheels.
But their superior performance is considered to be worth the mess by the buyers of those brands. Jeep says the next one should occur at 12,000 miles, but the Cherokee's computer has begun to ask for the service a bit early. Our Cherokee has a Forward Collision Warning (FCW) that emits a chime if the car suspects the driver is approaching an obstacle too quickly.
We're generally against pointless oil changes, but without a "heavy duty" use maintenance schedule (other manufacturers give guidelines for heavy use), we're on our own here. A sloppily molded piece of black plastic that caps the strip of brightwork running along the bottom of the driver-side rear window. Or maybe, when our advisor typed the VIN into his computer, it came up as being owned by Chrysler. There was no way she was going to be able to drive her car home (manual transmission Genesis Coupe), so I enlisted the help of Kurt Niebuhr to get her car back to Edmunds HQ while I drove the gimped redhead home in the Jeep. Midas almost never has a nationally run coupon, at least not since this site has been up and running.
But considering that this high-performance SRT8 baby takes seven quarts of synthetic oil and that it included rotating the big donuts, not too bad either.
To illustrate the problem better I ran my finger through the soot and created a clean line.
At the recomendation of Ralph Gilles, the CEO of SRT, I've even started running the Jeep's tires at 28 psi (33 psi is spec) to try to smooth things out, but honestly it hasn't really worked. And we don't want our all-wheel drive Jeep to be unable to navigate the mountains and ski areas of California, which it would be unable to do on its stock summer tires or BFGoodrich KDWs, which were also an option for us. So I'm going with the explanation that it was merely the sun reflecting across the sensor and creating interference. And two, Subaru warns us to "avoid rapid acceleration" while the Jeep recommends "brief full-throttle acceleration" during the break-in. If you want a coupon for any of those places, you can find nationally run deals on this site.
