Fixed price service

Hi Guys,

I pick up my Bright silver Jet edition on Wednesday the 29th and have been offered a fixed price servicing deal, $723 for both the 12000 and 24000k with rental car. Is this a good price? I have done the ring around to other dealers and have been quoted as high as $500 for the 12000k service alone. Please let me know your thoughts and if there is anything to be aware of with this kind of deal. I usually do all servicing myself but figured with all the updates and changes these things are getting at the moment it may pay to let the dealer have it.

Cheers
Adamt

Re: Fixed price service

That price is good, as $450 seems to be the norm. $450 is still a major ripoff as they only work is oil change, check & topup fluids and rotate tyres.

Re: Fixed price service

So, if you're saying $723.00 for 2 services (that's $361.50 per service) including a courtesy car, I'd jump at it.

Dealer servicing is always over the top but this sounds like a reasonably good deal particularly if you also request the TSB updates. They'll list the updates on your service invoice so you have a record of them.

Re: Fixed price service

$723 for both seems pretty good - I paid $475 for my 10k service plus $50 for a wheel alignment.

Re: Fixed price service

Remember, what you are effectively doing is guaranteeing the dealership that you will go back to them for servicing. It will not be transferable.
Effectively, you are paying for
oil: .............20ltrs
Oil filters: ....2
Aircon filter: 1
Labour: .......Lots.

It says in the service and warranty handbook that you are entitled to one free wheel alignment under warranty.

I got mine for free.

Re: Fixed price service

I would be interested in the dealer details you received the offer from. I have 2 months to go for my delivery (Laredo CRD with extras) and this would be a good bonus to get a deal like this. A PM would be OK if you don't want to name the dealer on the post.

Re: Fixed price service

Thanks Adamt, I tried to send a PM to you but could not send. I will sound out my dealer I purchased from for any deals like yours as it sounds good. I looked at the one you mentioned when purchasing but they did not take me for a genuine buyer and would not commit to a definite price.
John
