Can any dealership tech tell me the benefit of having your Challenger serviced at the dealership vs doing it yourself?
The UConnect updates are different than the flash updates to other parts of the car. Like the PCM and TCM updates that are sometimes needed, and sometimes make things worse.Thanks for the info. That all makes sense. Regarding the updates, I own a 2016 Shaker RT. It only has 6000 miles and I has updated on it's own twice. Maybe this is a Uconnect feature? Are there different updates the car needs?
Anything other than doing it at the dealership will give FCA ammo to deny your claim.Documentation. Doing "at home" service, without documentation, could put you in a situation where a warranty issue is denied because of "neglect".
"Neglect" is the actual word FCA will use in denying a claim.
I have said this all along. People say they have all the receipts, means nothing. No way to prove the work was actually done or even purchased for the car in question. We can only hope they are being truthful.
Here's what I do:
Won't work according to Mopar. I called and asked, and unless the service was recorded officially, you can't prove that what you bought went into the car.Here's what I do:
>print a page from the maintenance schedule
>put the date and mileage and what service performed
>attach copy of receipts / invoices for supplies I purchased
I keep physical files of the maintenance records - that's the proof.
