service due!

as the title im now due my first service and have just been quoted 252 including 10 discount (generous ) buy stoneacre in worksop. but im not really a fan of them or the price tbh. so i was wondering if there where any other recomendation's from you lot in the north notts/south yorkshire area.

im not expecting it to be drasticly cheaper would just prefer a diff garage!

cheers

Re: service due!

Im just sure about garage up the there but that does seem quite steep, I paid 150 for my 1st service. Try to get it down below the 200 mark.

Re: service due!

is your mileage low enough to qualify for a low mileage service?

Re: service due!

151 at Fiat Ayr for my 1st 18000 m service but this was a few months ago. Would suggest shopping around and haggling. Surely with all the credit crunch stuff that's everywhere there is scope for a good deal ?

Re: service due!

Just booked in for my 2nd year major service today, quoted 382, but gave them a list of warranty work as long as my arm, so i suppose it'll even out now. Ill have a bootlid shutline that isnt an inch wide now hopefully, huzzah.

At the end of the day, didnt you research servicing costs before you bought the car? Or if you bought brand new didnt you get fixed price servicing thrown in?

Re: service due!

Dont bother ringing up Evans Halshaw in mansfield if you were thinking about it. They are monkeys.
