I brought my 300C to the dealer for periodic maintenance last week. After getting back home and checking in details the bill, found the dealer set the tire pressure to 36psi (the manual says 30psi).
I don't think the dealer (a long time Chrysler dealer in California) tech was stupid of not to follow whatever it should be, especially it's now written black & white on the bill. Is it a general practice for dealers to set tire pressure 20% above manufacturer recommendation, or they just want the tire to wear faster for potential tires business?
Should the dealer have told their customers BEFORE doing it, or at least inform customer by the time of releasing the vehicle?
Any comments are appreciated.
