Rang a couple of dealers to book a 125k service and the price was the best part of £100 difference. Seems they have a different list of jobs to do. Anyone got a job sheet for a 2.4 7th gen so I know which to choose.

 

Cheers Spud.

If you can find a dealer who will really do all that I would pay them but from past experiences most dealers are rubber stampers I don't trust anyone with my vehicle if i can't see with being done that includes dealers as 1 dealer did service and forgot rover fill with oil other dealers I used in past have failed to diagnose problems correctly in fact most times wrong diagnostic to expensive parts which who knows if they fit or not so sorry but my trust with most dealers is long lost if i must visit a dealer i require to view the vehicle while work is done even if it's from a window away from workshop as i know they allow customers on workshop

Also a decent garage can diagnose, stamp the book and do the vehicle in front of you, I only use garages from good garage scheme or motor ombudsman scheme

Actually getting round to getting it serviced and for £350 it doesn't seem a lot for your money, especially at 0.8 hrs. Honda say they want it 4 hrs ! and I don't think ever in it's life have the valve clearances been checked.

This is why a little home DIY goes a long way.

 

Most of those checks are done on the MOT for £50 or less.

 

You can change the cabin filter yourself - buy one for £10 on eBay - the handbook shows how and it takes less than 5 minutes.

 

That leaves the oil change, and if you can do your own, the oil and filter costs about £30.

 

Having said that, if Honda want it 4 hours, they'll be doing the full works - much more than what Autodata says.

The reason they want it 4 hours is because they don't know precisely what time they'll do it, a bit like get a washing-machine delivered.

Maybe use it for a trip to Gregg's before giving it back (at high speed, if it's a performance car).

There was a great clip on Civinfo showing how Honda technicians discussed and treated a customer's CTR, not realising that he'd left his dash cam running in permanently on mode. Most worrying was the way it was hammered over a speed hump...

Yeah, you hear the horror stories.

Why I service my own, or on a very rare occasion it gets worked on by someone I trust implicitly.

Having worked at a local dealer I can tell you the "pdi" and road tests were more like a rallycourse. There were records set in certain models around notorious bends etc.

Haha. For a year I put the PDI mileage on motorcycles for a dealer, and can relate to this.
We exported a lot of bikes to Germany with 9 miles on the clock and worn hero blobs on the footpegs.

I disagree most dealers are rubber stampers and that's me being polite I do another name for them but won't mention here
