    Hi

    It seems like minor services come in at about R3500 and major services at up to R8k at dealers. Does not matter what brand you drive, labour rates are crazy!

    Cheers

    Problem is I'm comparing it so Swambo's Swift. R1800 for a minor and R4100 for a major

    How's about this: I did a quote for someone on rear axle bushes on a Juke. Not available aftermarket. Agents don't sell it loose. Rear axle R47k...

    Didn't want to quote on remoulding as then the vehicle would be taking space in the shop, but seems like only option.

    Swambo's Honda Civic came in just below R6k! Only thing extra was "spark plugs"!

    Yup its crazy, did the little NP200 Dci (just filters and oil) yesterday and it was just more than R3700 for 30k service, luckily still on motorplan, but charging R1,5k labor for a service......maybe I am missing something? At least the saving on fuel bill with this little bakkie makes up for the losses when servicing!

    BMW 120d service this week, oil, oil Filter, Microfilter, and airfilter change came in at a nice R4900.00

    I stagger the service items, as I dot not even want to know what they will charge for a FULL Major service.

    I've just had a minor service done on an NP200 at the dealer. R3800.

    We've decided to service our two NP200s now at an independent and to take the lost warranty risk rather.

    Not really. GP's charge per 15 min consult. (Fine, if your consult turns into 20min I doubt you will be charged more) Their hourly rate will be in excess of around 4 times what they charge for a consult.

    Ja no, agreed. Was just pointing out that a consultation fee of a GP does not equal to their hourly fee.

    My friend just paid under R1,200 for his 10,000km service on his 2.8 fortuner.

    These are GD6, in my opinion the np300 service costs should be compared to the D4D, here is a old thread on them
    https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...hlight=service

    I did my D4D cambelt change with them now, 150,000km, the most expensive one to be done. Their labour rate is now R700 excl vat.
    Labour, timing belt, tensioner, idler, engine oil, gasket, transmission oil, consumables = R5,435.97 Incl Vat

    I did the air filter, diesel filter and extra diesel filter myself for R595 Incl Vat
