Any1 used Ultra Tune for there serviceing

I just had a quote from my ford dealer to have the oil & filture changed at my 3k complementary service & was quoted $120 i thought that was ridiculous so a mate of mine did the oil & filter change at his workship. I know that Ulta Tune offer fixed price log book servicing any feedback or comments.
Cheers

Re: Any1 used Ultra Tune for there serviceing

I've never used Ultra Tune but I have heard bad reports.

I suppose that will vary from outlet to outlet as well. They wouldn't all be the same - you can strike good or bad mechanics anywhere.

Be careful on fixed price servicing , you only get what you pay for and nothing extra which sometimes isnt enough

For my 30k service, Ultra Tune was $50 more expensive than Ford's price of $170. Ford also explained that Ultra Tune did not have the diagnostic equipment to load any upgrades.

this is very true, im an apprentice mechanic at a multi car dealership, and atm we have a $99 service which includes oil and filter change and inspect mechanical parts of the car. (oh and free car wash), thats all. now if u book in lets say a mitsibishi for a service the oil put in ur car is castrol drum oil, not the recommended bottle oil stuff (dont remember the name) which should be put in the engine. so the recommended oil is extra. this is the same for kia, landrover,suzuki.

so if ur car needs servicing, do it urself, unless its nothing major like replacing ur clutch or sumthing. just pop the bonnet, top up the fluid levels, jack up ur car drop ur oil, change ur filter, then refill with oil. simple and only take 1 to 2 hrs with the basic tools, and u could save some money.

So are you offering to stamp the service booklet for us?
