    Just paid £400 for a service, I thought that it was a bit dear, is this the going rate?

    It included a filter pack (whatever that is!) and an oil change, they checked the batteries at our request.

    cheers Dawn

    if you mean an engine only service then that is around 60% overpriced.

    filter pack consists of an air filter, an oil filter and a fuel filter.......it may also include a pollen filter for the face/floor/heater vents.

    average aftermarket price for full filter kit is around £35....double that for main dealer price.

    oil will be around £30 for 5 ltrs....again, dealers a lot more.

    labour should be no more than an hour for an oil service..

    yep....sounds like main dealer service.......robbing ba**ards.

    use main dealers is you are still in warranty or have no notion of the value of money, otherwise use a good independent.

    just oil serviced my Chrysler.......9.5lts oil = £60....oil, air and fuel filters = £29......45 minutes of my time = priceless.....but an independant would charge maybe £40.

    total = £129

    Hi

    Just had our van serviced yesterday at large motorhome dealer. Cost was £250 for the (first) service and £175 for habitation check.

    £400 for just a service sounds like far too much to me.
