Hi


Just got my wife's Vitara S back after having it's second service (18000 miles). I was very surprised at the cost....... I probably should've asked when I booked it in.

The price came to £228, they said that brake fluid has to be changed every two years and there were a couple of extra items.

After a haggle I got the price down to £201.

Has anyone else had a better price for servicing? I think for what is a pretty basic vehicle the service price seems quite high, especially when the intervals are every 9k. I was expecting the price to be around £180.

Also, as was the case last year, the service light on the dashboard didn't illuminate, any ideas?

Thanks

These days £228 for a second service is not too bad. Remember it is not just the mechanic's wages, there are the overheads of office staff, heating, and workshop maintenance.

I had a Toyota IQ and Verso S before getting the Vitara and Toyota prices are really high . Last service on my IQ was quoted at £350 and customer service was very poor. Needless to say the car wasn't serviced there and I moved to Suzuki and find the prices for servicing and parts at my local dealer Eastham Motors to be quite good and customer service is much much better than at my Toyota dealer.

Sounds like I didn’t get a bad deal after all. The customer sevice has been ok I just wasn’t aware until yesterday of the servicing price structure.

My wife has a Fiat 500 with the 1.2 engine - main dealer service prices in November were £165 or £265 if it needs plugs and pollen filter! Now that is a basic car which we had serviced at a 500 specialist for £94.
