When I asked what I got for that price, the reply: " check lights, wiper/washers, horn & electrical system, parkbrake operation, brake & clutch pedal travel, engine idle speed, aircon operation, check for outstanding recall or service campaigns, small injection quantity learning using MUT III tool, check all electronic control system diagnosis output using manufacturer specified special tools, road test and report any defects. Almost a 5 hour service". Quote.
I had specified no need to rotate tyres or check brakes as I take care of these separately on a km schedule.
No mention of replace timing belt, or check valve clearances.
FMD. I suppose I should be grateful that they would commit "almost 5 hours" of an apprentice's valuable time on my vehicle. Any mechanic who took 5 hours to carry out that work would be working from his iron lung, surely.
I didn't go with the local Mitsi dealer for the 90,000km service back then, and have been regularly receiving text messages from the dealership about the service being due.
This week, the offer is 15% discount off any log book service charge.
Beginning to sound like a national jewellery chain now. Put the price up 20% then offer 15% discount sale price.
