4 Year Or 30k Service


Recommended Posts

Hi Frds,

I need your qualified opinion on the following :

I bought my lexus from a non-lexus dealer a month ago. Even the dealer said he has done the service and oil change etc but I dont believe him. I want for my own piece of mind a proper full service either by a Lexus dealer or a Lexus speciliats.

The car is nearly 30K miles. It is IS200 SE 54 reg. The last service as per service book was done on 21K miles in Oct 07 by a Lexus dealer. I live in Manchester. I have tried to get the quotes by Lexus dealers in Manchester for full service. The cheapest quote is £350 and the highest was £386 including VAT.

Now, Could you please advise is it worth going to dealer for the service and is this price is reasonable?

Is there any specilaist in Manchester where I go for this? How much I could save if I go to a private garage.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

I paid 335 quid for a 40k service a couple of weeks ago so that seems ok. As for is it worth it well thats up to you I do as its still a new car and for piece of mind. Lets face it to do the work that they do for 300 quid even to take it else where would probably set you back a couple of hundred anyway whats an etc 100 quid when it comes to a car like this?

I agree. As you have just taken over the car, it would be a good idea. I'm not sure about whether it's worth it after that. May be best to find a really good garage. I seem to recall that there is an excellent specialist in Glossop, they have been mentioned somewhere on this site. May be worth the journey.

Hi Frds,

Thanks for the reply. I called Charlesworth and got the quote. They quoted me £145+ VAT for full service by using genuine parts and £20 for wheel balancing. That seems very reasonable and saving of more than £150 (compared to Lexus dealer).

Now, I am double minded. What should I do. Will going to lexus dealer I get any extra benefit (e.g free software upgrade etc and full diagnostic ) or it is same going to Specialist like Charlesworths.?

I am very much tempted to save money but also dont want to take any risks (as this is new car for me). Any advice will be apperciated. Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Grandmaster
