Just been quoted £380 for a 36k service on my Abarth..... wouldn't mind if they actually did very much but that doesn't even include a new cam belt. apparently new parts are: 3 filters and the fluids !!!! - oh yes and 4 hours work.....:cry:

Take it to an independent specialist.

FAST in Teesside quote around 500 for a 2.4 20v JTD - but that includes the full cambelt change, tensioners, water pump... etc.

how much is the 48k service on a JTD? mines coming up soon :(

I just paid £303.50 for that.

Unfortunately I got the Fiat garage to replace the brake pads all round too at a cost of £220 so total bill was over £500.:eek:

I could've got the brake pads for £35 and done it myself but only if it was summer:(

I know what you mean about the brake pads, when mine was in for its 2year service at the end of last year! They told me my brake pads would need replacing next time round! £80 fronts and £80 rear = £160 thats vat, fitting and product... its still dam expensive!!! Well i plan to fit my pads myself just before it goes in for the 3rd year service.. and ive managed to pick up the front brand new for £20 off ebay from a fiat garage and still looking for some rears... i know there is various other rear pads on there but i want the exact same as whats on there standard! But the rear were only about £35/40 brand new from fiat thats if i dont pick them up cheaper in the meantime, so over all ive be saving a good £ton!!

Most dealers offer a similar priced service (£89 or £105 inc MOT) under different names,including all filters/plugs etc...but go where your happy with that is what counts:)
