First Service
« on: May 01, 2014, 03:47:22 PM »
Afternoon All,

Just though I'd pop in and say hello. I have been reading this forum for a few weeks, but inly just registered. So please be nice!

I have just taken my 12 plate Galaxy for a service at the local Ford garage, and left my GF to deal with it while I was at work. Turns out its going cost me 800+, I'm looking forward to the bill breakdown!.

And they didn't include collection and delivery, all fully valeted and also assign you a personal service manager all in?  ::)

Joking aside I hope its a mistake on their part.

I'm not totally sure what the breakdown will be, but I needed a new wing mirror as someone decided that it would look better all smashed and hanging down the side of the car. Also needed two new tires, (something I had been meaning to look at for a few weeks but not had time).

I dont think that the garage are trying to rip me off, Its just things I could and should have done myself before hand but never had the chance. I think its a case of lesson learned!

Ahh, the wing mirror alone will be in the 275 range, tyres probably 100 each so at 475. Service around 125 so 600 then chuck some labour and VAT on that and its around the price you paid.

Turns out needed brake fluid change rear O/s tyre too. Not too bad all in all, they did wash the car but didn't touch inside, until I complained. dropped  it of this morning, for its Valet but due to the football and now too many beers,Ill collect it tomorrow
