    Following on from wingmans thread on Peugeot servicing costs, I've taken our 2014 Peugeot Auto Sleeper coach built to the local Peugeot dealers for some warranty work as it's raining in behind the dash above the foot pedals.
    Anyway I booked it in for it's first service on the 2nd March , and was gob smacked with the £418 quote, so I asked why it was so dear.

    This is the reason that the young desk jockey gave me, because it's a motorhome it requires more oil.

    My response it's an ordinary panel van with coach built body same amount of oil.

    His response err, err, oh it's the same as an ambulance and there's more work needed on the service.
    Anyway I gave up with this and booked it in to keep my warranty, I know that I can go to a vat registered garage and as long as they use Peugeot parts and oil warranty will still be covered, but I don't want any future problems if warranty work is required.

    John.

    First think id do would be get in touch with their aftersales or service manager and tell him what you were told. Ask if they record the calls and ask him to explain why its so expensive.

    That is truly extortionate. I paid around £300 for the last service, and that included something being repaired. Can't remember what it was now though.

    Then ring the next nearest agent to get a price off them. I wouldn't give them my business, if the kid didn't have anything sensible to say he should have sed nowt!

    My local Fiat dealer just said I needed a oil and filter change at the first service. I would look for another dealer.

    I've had over 20 vehicles in the last 25 years and have NEVER let them touch my vehicles unless it was warranty work. I always supplied receipts for the services and was never refused warranty issues. My local reliable garage who CAN repair vehicles rather than replace parts has always looked after my Motor homes servicing. My last service was a full lube and filter changes along with total brake strip and alko greasing. Cost including vat was £225. Over £60 was the liquid gold.
    Dealer loyalty means nothing so think hard before getting ripped off as a loyal customer.

    :)
    You say your van is 2014, first service due at 28,000m or 2 years (2 years only applies to UK converted Motorhomes).
    I will probably take mine in for a service when it is a bit over 2 years old (out of warranty) at my local independent about £110, they charge £20 +vat for fully synthetic oil for a 2.3 X250.

    Fiat dealers around here charge about £250 for a low mileage service, not everything is dearer down south.:)

    Lenny are you sure?

    My Fiat based German converted motorhome has a 2 year / 28,000 mile service period. And it only has a 2 year warranty, whereas the OP's UK converted Fiat has a 3 year warranty with the additional year provided by insurance I understand.

    Have heard that Peugeot servicing is expensive but that does sound extremely excessive - we had to get our Ford recategorised on their system as the first quote for its first service was like yours so think they have a category that is "Motorhomes - customer must be loaded so charge top whack!" :eek: Had to point out that it should cost no more than a Transit van to service & less checks to do as hab area not their concern. As posted on other thread this years Interim Service will be £150, £45 for brake fluid replacement (every 2 years) but not had major service yet as mileage too low.

    At those prices it is worth checking what the service price would be in France or Spain.

    Don't go to Stuart Longtons in Chorley, they said they had done an oil and filter/air filter on mine and they hadn't. It was FOC but it pissed me off.

    yes that's right 3 years on a UK conversion, 2 on our Hymers as the converter is outside the UK as the chassis was supplied to Germany.
