I live in Guelph, just west of Toronto, Canada. I drive an 07 Nitro SXT, 3.7L auto.
I had my brake rotors and pads changed the week before last at 120,000km (75,000miles). Cost was $1,100.00cdn at a CAA shop.
My guess is your driving technique, the Nitro is a heavy vehicle.
I've also had Jiffy lube leave the oil filler cap off on my Jeep Comanche back twenty years ago, so it's not just a dealer thing, coated the underside of the hood (bonnet) with oil, at least it stopped it going rusty. lol
The only issues since owning my Nitro - I had to replace the transfer case selector actuator motor during the first winter, the recall J28 for the wiper relay, and I broke the side panel off the driver seat, glued and screwed it back on until I get a replacement panel and figure out how to change it, then also screw it on, oh and hit a snowbank the week after I bought it and cracked the front skirt - glued up.
