I found out about service costs the hard way. The vehicle was purchased from Melbourne City Jeep and I was happy with the new car delivery and previous updates.
Booked for 1st service 10k @ $544.50.
Thought I'd called Northern Motor Group the day before to double check costs $419.15 initial quote, revised to $472.65 once they had service code of my exact car.
Thought I'd call City Jeep before I dropped it off to justify discrepancy, explained that they provide software updates... heheheh...
Dropped the car off, explained my dissatisfaction with costs and told them it won't be coming back, dropped to $495 when I picked it up. Wasn't going try the free filter at this point.
Breakdown looks like;
Labour $210 (oil+filter+rotate tyres+look around)
Washer additive $2
Washer Sealing $4.50
Valv SynPower 5W30 $153.30
Workshop Supplies $12.50
Oil disposal $8
It appears City Jeep have fixed price for 3ltr Diesel that looks like this;
12k = 495 ex
24k = 658 ex
36k = 618 ex
48k = 1055ex
60k = 1158 ex
72k = 623 ex
So City Jeep appear to have a fixed price to cover all possible specs and a bit more....
I've only heard good things about Northern Motor Group and found that all of their staff can explain all current issues, bulletins, DPF, etc, so it will be going there in the future.
