Servicing costs
#1
Could some one put me out of my misery. How much is a 36k service? Mines a van but pretty sure it won't make a difference. Tried 3 dealers and they won't give me a price or tell me if they have slots for 5 weeks time without giving them the reg. I've tried telling them all the details about the van other than the reg but they won't play - bar stewards. I just want to compare a few prices.

1. Because when there are 2 or 3 reasonably local dealers who are all part of the group, they log your quote. You ring the next one and they'll give you the same quote.
2. One of these Citroen dealer "groups" has got a deal where you save 15% if you book online - however, they won't give you the price without you giving them the registration - catch 22.

I mean what is the problem? You tell them, it's this type of veh etc etc. What the price for a 36k service? We cannot give you that information without you giving us the registration - why ???

On the Citroen website is a really abysmal marketing survey. Invest a little time to communicate through confusing and contradictory answers, just how poor this survey is to the amateur idiot who put it together and the bigger idiot at Citroen who paid for it.
:whistle:


Thanks for the link to the service costs offer will try to use a lever to drive the price down elsewhere.

I'd imagine the margin on servicing consumables in the UK is fairly thin; beyond a small discount you're more likely to be motivating someone to leave an item off the menu. Even that Citroën one, they don't replace the pollen filter but only check it. Nor do they full flush the brake fluid, with DOT4 this should be done every 24 months or sooner.

I got a full service done at my mates garage using Citroen parts and oil for under £150. Oil, Oil filter, fuel filter, pollen filter, air filter, power steering fluid, screen wash, and a couple of bulbs, then gave the rest of the car a check over and I got a stamp in my service book Smile
He said he could of done it for around £120 using non Citroen parts but since its still under warranty decided to use Citroen parts.

The prices in the link are for over 3yrs old vehicles. My Citroen garage charged that for service/mot at 4yrs old last service. I would have thought all Citroen garage service charges were similar. If you want much cheaper you will have to go to an independant who may not do the whole service or use the correct oil. They want the reg to put the van on their system with correct service parts lined up for service. My local Citroen garage is very precise on this, they lay out all the service parts on the bench prior to servicing vehicle.
