Price AU 3 45000km Service.

Just read Normell's post. What is a reasonable price for a Fairmont AU 3 V8 service, at 45000km's ? Been quoted $220>$300, this is from a large Brizvegas dealer. Mine is due next month, don't trust Ultratune, Kmart or Midas from past experience. Who is a good dealer for servicing in Brizzy? Cheers

If you can arrange service for a day off, go and watch it being done.
Thats what I'm gunna do from now on, that way they can't charge for thing's they don't do.

Re: Price AU 3 45000km Service.

My quote is from a Ford dealer. The others quote $100 less than my local Ford dealer. Which is why I asked the Question. Am I being ripped off? Cheers

Re: Price AU 3 45000km Service.

Take it to a Ford dealer,it might cost you more but at least they know their products,i would never take any car to a Midas ,K-Mart etc for a service,but i suppose it depends on the person if they can afford it to take it to a Ford dealership.
Cheers John

Re: Price AU 3 45000km Service.

Isn't it free for AUII and AUIII up to 60,000km's?

Our AUII fairmont wagon hasn't cost us a cent except for tyres yet...

Or was that a Victorian only thing?

Re: Price AU 3 45000km Service.

$200-$250 is fair. 45,000km is the bigger service with air filter replacement and plugs if not iridiums.

The AUII free servicing deal wasn't extended to the AUIII for some reason, probably discounting by the factory to clear them for the BA.

Re: Price AU 3 45000km Service.

That seems a bit weird that they dont do the free servicing on AU3, i thought all new cars had to come with some sort of warranty like that?

I know AUII is 3yrs from purchase date, or 100,000kms, whichever comes first.

Re: Price AU 3 45000km Service.

I think AUII got free servicing to help sell them. And it was only to 60000km's.
I bought an AUIII and I asked about the free servicing, and was told not continued into AUIII.

The way I look at it.

Ford know Ford, and Only Ford.

Midas, K-Mart etc have to know every car.
