40k service. oh noes!

I got my "Hey, it's almost time for your 40k service!" letter today from my ever-concerned dealership today moneymoneymoney. Right now it's looking like it's going to be more of a 42k service (I have put 10k miles on the car in a little over four months holy CRAP). The letter didn't tell me what the service entailed, and there is no service book with the car-- just a printout of what was replaced under warranty and the dates of previous "milestone" services.

Soooo... what should I expect? The oil is due for a change (already), I know that much. But I know the trans fluid was replaced when I took delivery of the car. Are we talking, like, belt changes, things along that line? Is it anything urgent that can't wait until when I go back to work? I've been putting much fewer miles on the car now that I don't go anywhere, but I may make it to 45k before this is done.

Oh, and what should I expect to shell out to have the service done?

For the record, it's a 2002 9-3SE with an auto trans. Runs fine.

Warranty went up at the end of May. I don't think maintainence is covered under warranty anyhow... or if it is, it wasn't transferrable. Either way, car's OOW.

Warranty does not cover service visits for wear items. I believe that this service is Oil change and plugs with a software update if available. I will check my book when I get home.

you might try a reputable indy.

the dealer would not even tell me the cost of a 50K service on the phone my indy did it for 40 bucks.

the dealer charges like 795 for 60K service, my indy charges 400 something.

the dealer charges 150+ to flush the tranny fluid.

my indy charges 9.95 or so (cost of new fluid)

flush vs. change is a very different procedure. a 9.95 flush would be exellent.

no you're right it was just a drain and refill not flush but still they do everything for a much more reasonable price

Ali, you should be able to call up and see. I don't remember any of my servies being less than $75. I only did a couple though.

If I were you I would have an indy do an oil and filter change and call it good. Shouldn't be more than $25 for regular oil.

for my 50 K service they basically looked around and then changed the oil/filter and I had them replace the tranny fluid for 10 bucks more.

I think I padi 45 bucks for the 50K service

I would recomend an oil change and belts if they look bad. It is also time to learn some DIY to try and save as much money as possible.

The 40K is nothing. Personally I would just change the oil and move on.
The 40K is change oil, check this, check that. The 35, 70, and 90 are the major ones. For Mr. "110K" I would suggest doing the 90K major service.

at 1K there is a checkup to be sure everything is OK

then it is every 10K "checkup" plus oil

major service at 30, 60, 90, 120 etc

I'm so confused, I'm used to driving cars that are older than I am that don't stick to any particular regimes, just "when it breaks, fix it"
