    Ring round bud you will find a lot of dealers with varying prices. Is SvRS enabled on your car? search for it you will find loads of information on it here.

    What version? How old?

    e.g. Standard servicing on the 7th Generation I-CTDI is 12500 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first.

    For ref, I paid almost the same price for the 50k on my old I-CTDI 2 years ago...

    Mark in this guide section you have detailed servicing schedules for other engines. I will get the I-DTEC up in a few days.

    That sounds like an awful lot of money to being paid for a service. And, what would be included for that?

    In the US, we get our vehicles serviced regularly but it's not all inclusive. Usually I take my vehicle in once a season (every three months) and once before a long road trip, to have oil change, new spark plugs, etc. It's not usually so expensive as the price quoted here. Perhaps, they are doing some serious diagnostic tests on your vehicle.

    Hi, not serviced yet I need to speak with the dealer about a 60 month budget service agreement fully paid for that my father had before he passed away, 18 months remaining? I hope that they will honour this agreement as it has been paid for? I shall keep you informed of the outcome.................

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your father. The service agreement is on the car and not the individual and in the circumstances I sure certain exceptions can be made.Keep us posted bud.:Thumbup:

    That's good to hear. It's always nice when you catch a break with an honest dealer. Though I've had nothing but the best experience with my own Honda Accord dealer so far. They've been super nice when there was an issue and rushed to provide the best customer service and care for my vehicle. Hopefully others had the same experience.
