Well to cut a long story short

2years old got a letter from supplying dealer saying it needed a major service.. any how i wasn't happy with the level of "service" i got from them including with them mucking about with the stuff in my car....

so i decided to shop about

one fiat dealership wanted 400+

another said as i was only on about 9k miles and the car was 2 years old and low mileage i could just have a minor service 120 ish

rung SG Petch at York.. and the very nice service lady ascertained i had serviced it when it was 1 year old and done about 6k in the last year so it wouldn't need servicing for another year or when it hit 18k miles and she referred me to the service handbook,,,,,

so to double check i use the live chat and speak to a fiat customer service via messenger
What Goes Up Must Come Down.....

Smile Re: Yearly service or 18000 mile service?

Just a quick update...phoned main dealer to book it in for the yearly service and they said it only needed a yearly service if car has done low miles...9000 ish .As my car has done 14000 miles I only need to book it in at 18000mls or 2 yrs as per the handbook!Result...........They also said they normally send letters out yearly to remind people....................
