    Hi everyone.
    My 8th Generation Accord wagon which I purchased about six weeks ago (not Honda approved) with full Honda service record, is coming up to the 75K mile service in about 2-3 months. Honda Lincoln quotes about £515 for this service, while I don’t mind the price for my piece of mind and to keep the service record up to date. I was thinking could this service be obtained cheaper at another Honda dealer, or is this a set price Honda service?
    Regards
    John

    What's involved in the 75K mile service for an 8th Generation John? Seems expensive but I suppose it depends on what fluids and filters get changed.

    I recently got a main dealer service discounted from £175 to £129 because they had a promotion on. I thought Honda fixed price servicing was either £175 or £275 - with the more expensive service including brake fluid and air filter change I think.

    Mileage wise my car is at 96K. Shop around.

    Hi Dave
    Apparently it’s all fluids (engine, gearbox, Brakes, is clutch hydraulic?), all filters, ECU update and 2 hours labour, that was just a brief overview on the printout i'm sure there must be more.

    John, search - Honda fixed price servicing - this gives all that is included and a lot cheaper than you were quoted!

    Agreed. I get £415.

    £275 for 12+ service which includes brake fluid, pollen filter and air filter plus gearbox oil at £75 and coolant change at £65.

    So we're £100 out unless the £515 includes clutch fluid or they are charging for ECU update?

    Ring round mater all dealer have their own pricing and profit margin you will be surprised how much the differential is. Look further afield.
