Independent servicing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Does anyone on here use an independent garage to complete the servicing on their CT200H?

I've had a quote of just under £180 for the full 40k service from an independent and it looks like all I am missing out on is the extended hybrid battery warranty. What's others thoughts on where to service and the pricing?

thats a good price i think that one is usually £295 at dealership. intermediate is £195. would you mind telling me where the indie dealer you located is? i just paid £545 for the 100k service as its a once in a life time service supposedely. 

I would recommend getting the extended warranty if you can as i got quoted £170 for exhaust sheild wearing it was almost falling off aswell as brake caliper and caliper piston replaced quoted at £600. luckily they were both cover by extended warranty. i beleive the hybrid battery warrsnty is 5 years.

If you get the vehicle services elsewhere the hybrid check & warranty can be done separately via the dealer for around £70. 

The check/warranty can be taken on a car up to 10 years old.

£180 seems very cheap for a major service are you sure everything has been carried out ???

what grade of engine oil did they use for your car and did they change the brake fluid.

Apologies my initial post may have been misleading.

By independent garage I am not referring to a Lexus garage, simply a garage who are trained to service hybrid vehicles. The quote is for a service as per the service schedule.

£180 does seem extremely cheap for a Full service. As above, make sure they're using the right grade oil - OW-20 - seems to be about £30 for 5l by the looks of things

My son's Golf costs about £200 for a full service at my local indy
