The 2 Marin dealers charge between $450 and $490 for the 30K, and do not change the sparkplugs, transmission fluid, differential fluid, or fuel filter. They also only do a drain on the radiator fluid, not a flush. Both charge about $30 for an oil change. So the difference being the inspections, air filter, and replacing the brake fluid, which I can't see taking more than an hour?!
When I pointed this out to the Service Advisors, I just got a shrug and zero explanation. Bianco is having a $110 transmission and differential fluid replacement special. So, I'm doing that along with some warranty stuff, and taking the car to my local mechanic for the 30K service.
I usually always go to the dealer for service, as it usually makes new car negotiations and warranty issues a breeze. But, I cannot figure their pricing on 30K servicings. God forbid the 60K!
What am I missing?
