|mg_td||i think 40k isnt anything but an oil change. 60k gets you bigger ones. serp belt, fuel filter, brake fluid, coolant etc.|

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

|guru||Uh oh, there was a 35k?! I didn't get that memo! Fucking stealership|

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.

|Tweek's Turbos||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.|

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

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.

|abdukted1456||no you're right it was just a drain and refill not flush but still they do everything for a much more reasonable price|

|nowhereman1223||on this same subject if i have over 110k on mine and i bought it used (obviously) at about that what should i have done? what should i check to make sure that everything like that is kosher?|

|VWSAABVT||flush vs. change is a very different procedure. a 9.95 flush would be exellent.|
|08-17-2006 12:58 PM|
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)

|stevehayes01||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.|
|08-17-2006 12:38 PM|
|guru||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.|

|AeroDynamic||shouldnt it be under warranty?|

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.
