Hi guys, first post here. I must say that I don't understand how alot of people call the services a rip off.
A] How much is it for a hand wash and interior vac and clean...
B] How much is it to buy 7-8 litres of synthetic oil and the cartridge filter with the o-ring gasket.
C]How much is it worth for you to spend an hour or two of your time to change the oil, then disposal of filter and oil..
D] How long does it take the average person to pull down the encapsulation panels and inspect the suspension, brake system, any exposed parts of the wiring system, as well as any other aspects of the vehicle that might be model specific.
Yes there are some shops that might offer a brake inspection but usually charge you if you don't have work done there.
Here in the local dealership, an A service runs about $220-240 and a B runs about $420.
These are getting done about once a year with normal driving, or every 16,000 kms. The new 07's have an interval of about 22,000 kms between services.
Now consider some domestics and thier oil changes that are 6-8,000 kms and what they charge for a service....
Its really quite a bargain....
That and knowing that your car is in top shape..
