Hello all just curious to see if anyone is going to a Jeep Chrysler dealership for service. Recently my alfa dealership closed, and the next closets dealership to me does not have a service station. This dealership exports all Alfa work to a Jeep Chrysler dealership. Kind of weary if the technicians are properly trained to work on Alfas or am I just thinking too hard about this?
I feel better about MOPAR dealer capabilities as time goes on and the mainstream Jeep, Dodge etc. products have more Fiat/Alfa European technology and design. If you take your Alfa to a Jeep dealer, keep in mind that the 2.0 Jeep engine shares part numbers for its oil pump, water pump, timing chain guides and other things with our engine. And the transmission is used even in Dodge trucks. The major difference in architecture is that only Fiat and Alfa have the multiair valve system. Jeep techs are becoming familiar over time with the scan tool and diagnostic strategies used by the Fiat group, just as Chrysler/Dodge absorbed some Mercedes technology a quarter century ago. Next, with the merger into Stellantis, it will be a case of learning how the French do things!
I wouldn't worry too much about going to a Jeep dealer for the transmission, brakes and rotors, exhaust work, oil changes, filters and plugs, and even starters, alternators, oil pump and timing chain. But anything specific to multiair, for example, I'd take it to an Alfa dealer.
