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
