Re: 500 Servicing

But the Mini is 150 for three years servicing, surely Fiat ought to be at least going for that?

395 for 3 year service plan doesn't sound too exspensive to me
Where did you get this from. That would sound much more reasonable.

Re: 500 Servicing

If you actually look at the chart, Plan 1 gives you 12 services for £434 (Multijet) and on plan 4 you can have 12,345 for £1,080 - that's alot of services (the chart is poorly labeled)

Shocker - The 1.2 is the most expensive to service I'm really suprised at these figures. Looks like I'll be going to an independent

Beast - where did you see the 3 services for £395?

Re: 500 Servicing

Maybe the 1.2 needs more attention to valve clearances etc?

most large dealership chains have their own service plans.

Re: 500 Servicing

its just an oil change and a check of loads of other bits, and if you are really lucky they might just plug a diagnostic in to check for faults, which invariably they dont.

Can't quote for anyone else but our 3 year plan for cars in the 500 bracket are 395. And covers the cost of manufacturer's recommended servicing ( excluding the replacement of timing belts and exhaust filters).
