  • $205 for oil and filter change 7500Km SWB

    Does this seem reasonable to charge $205.00 for an oil and filter change at 7,500Km. No other work.

    Seems pricy to me.

    What do you reckon?

      I will ask them. Sounds like a nasty surprise coming up.

      Taking mine to Gosford on Saturday coming.

      Want to get it ready when I start towing next week.

          Oil Change

          On a recent trip, I paid $190 in Darwin for an oil change and filter, no other work. It is worth a phone call before you book the vehicle in, the price varies enormously in some cities, and some agents don't even change the filters unless you ask.

            Had a 30k service last week done on my NP DiD in Melbourne - $388 total including oil & fuel filters. The oil filter was $59.27 inc GST and the oil was $35.75 inc GST. The labour charge was $220. Unfortunately there isn't an hourly rate listed but I guess it would have to be somewhere between $80 and $110. So just oil & filter + general checks might take 1 to 1.5 hours. So, around $200 total sounds reasonable.

              My basic service - oil, filter etc only costs me about $140 max but then again I'm not going via the dealer.

                Don't forget the fuel filter aint cheap either .. bloody oil filter price sounds a bit over the top though
                i pay about 120 -130 (NP DID) per service when i supply all the parts and lubes ..i use Midas to maintain warranty cover (once the warranty is over i will do it myself) ... exception being the 45K km which i used the dealer for seing as it is coolant and brake fluid, gearbox, transfer, and diff oil change that cost me $270 for the labour....

                  That sounds about right to me if it includes the oil filter.Have a look at what a5L full synthetic oil from a major brand costs from BigW.Mobil1 is around $50.You need to buy 2 of them to get the 8L needed to for the job,then around $40 for the filter ($140 before labour).The mitsu genuine oil is full syntheic for the DID.

                    I paid around $190 for my 7,500km oil change. Only went to dealer due to it being listed as a log book service. Will do it myself if I change oil between 15,000km services from now on.

                        I live in Adelaide and Agostino only charged $150! I only hope they used the right oil.... although that was listed as costing $60 so it sounds about right.
