Hi everyone,
I am new here and I was wondering if someone can help me with some info regarding a few problems I have
I own a 2012 Jeep Grand cherokee limited 3.6ltr V6. I have just reached 70,000 km and taken it in for service (no longer under warranty) and I was told I need to replace the following...
-engine mount (1 side cracked, need to replace both side)
-Transmission mount (cracked)
-front side lower arm assy damaged and required to replace both sides
-spark plugs (6 pieces)
This car has never been driven off road. Dubai has very good road condition. I am surprised that at 70K I am required to do all this repair costing me around $1600 U.S dollars for parts and labor charges.
Can anyone help please!?

Welcome to LOST, and sorry you are having these issues at only 70K! Do you notice any driveability problems yourself?

If I were you I would get a second opinion from a different mechanic. If you are the first and only owner and you have never taken the Jeep off road or towed heavy loads, I would be very surprised to see this kind of damage. If there was a previous owner, you never can tell what they did to abuse the vehicle before you bought it. See if a different mechanic comes up with a similar diagnosis or whether this first shop is trying to make you pay for unnecessary repairs.

Good luck with the Jeep!
