18000 mile service

My Tipo 1.4 turbo petrol 2019 is coming up to its 18000 mile service and at the main dealer Snows of Southampton they have quoted 456! The last big service I had on a 500X a couple of years ago was 350. Does 456 sound right? Seems a hell of a lot of money for a service. And to make matters worse Snows is a 70 mile round journey due to the main dealer in Poole closing.....

Re: 18000 mile service

Just had my 18000 mile service done on my 68 plate 95hp tipo lounge at Richard Hardie at Sunderland and was quoted 250.

Re: 18000 mile service

My Tipo 1.4 T-Jet is booked in for the 18,000 mile service at Pewsham Garages in Chippenham and they quoted me in the region of 300. As it will have only done 5000 miles since the last service I asked if I could just have a Low Mileage service (basically an oil & filter change) instead, which is costing 170 plus VAT.

I'd say 456 is taking the mickey really, particularly as the Southampton branch has a variable reputation. I know its not great in that part of the World for dealers since Westover went, but if you can deal with the drive I'd recommend trying either Monza Sports Tuning in Ashington (Sussex), who are likely to work out cheaper even witn the extra fuel cost and have a brilliant reputation for Fiat & Alfa Aftersales, or alternatively try the new Fiat Dealer in Salisbury called August Motors. No idea what they're like but they're already a Honda Dealer and I can't imagine Honda giving a franchise to any tin pot outfit.

Contact Dean at Small Car Services. He has customer courtesy cars. VAT registered so work will not invalidate warranty. He and Ben are both ex Fiat main dealer technicians. If in warranty (or you ask) will only use Fiat/Mopar/FCA parts and lubricants.

5 miles from Junction 7 on M27.

If you want to wait then visit Marwell Zoo (only a few miles down the same road).
