18K Service

Right. We have our 18,000 mile service coming up. I'm just wondering if anyone had an idea of how much it'll cost?

I'm a bit of a newbie with servicing. I've always done it myself, but I have a warranty to uphold here

Any input would be appreciated, thanks

Talking Re: 18K Service

How old is the car ?

I'm going to have a 'gold' service from my local Fiat dealer (it's one of their 'out of warranty' menu items)

Looks like you got yourself a good local dealer there, unlike mine.

Re: 18K Service

18k service, on 3 year old T-Jet 120. I just don't wanna get ripped off. As I said, i've always serviced myself ^_^

Also, does it void warranty if i get it done elsewhere?

Re: 18K Service

18k cost me 160 but I got 75 back from Fiat as they arsed up the oil change.
36k was done 2 months ago at 31k and was 260 minus the 75 from last years fiasco. This was on a 165.

Re: 18K Service

Rang Fiat and were quoted 275. Said I'd call him back and he said wait, we can do it for 205. Got him down to 180... Good price?

Re: 18K Service

Good =] It's having a Free MOT there after. I'm a bit jubius about it, but they should pick up anything wrong on the service. If they fail it on it's MOT, I'll tell them to do one and take it to my local garage ^_^

I'm always dubious about 'free' MOTs but your right to have it straight after a service.
