Questionable estimate on a.c. repair
November 6, 2018
I recently had my son's '06 Jeep Grand Cherokee in for a recall. It had been garaged for 2 years. The a. c. was not blowing out of vents. I asked if they would check that out after performing recall service.
They said a rat had built a nest in the a c.& they gave me a $1,400 estimate. I was on the phone to service dept & said I would hold off on repairs. When I arrived at dealer to pick up Jeep they then told me the repair on a.c. would be $1100+
I was charged $69 diagnostic fee + $7 for "some screws"
We took the Jeep to a local mechanic who cleaned the rat's nest out ,added freon & charged $145. The a.c. is blowing cold clean air now.
I'd like to know how Studeville came up with the $1100 estimate!
I say "customer beware".
