  • NS petrol - tyres and service costs

    Hi All,

    A bit of info on servicing and tyre costs for my NS VRX petrol.

    Just had a major service including all fluids, filters, spark plugs and timing belt. Parts came to $580, fluids $150 and labour $500. I'm ok with that. As you can probably tell this wasn't done by a dealer.

    Also recently replaced my Cooper Discoverer H/T LT 18" tyres (we do minimal off-roading) and Tempe Tyres did it for $1060 including alignments (and no nitrogen...). The best price I could find here in Canberra was $1300.

    It's always just before xmas that spending like this is required!

      We had the engine replaced @45k. So the engine has done 90k and the rest of the car has done 135k.

        Engine, gearbox, two diffs, transfer case, flush cooling system, flush brake fluid and power steering.

        Sorry mate but the price for fluids seems way to cheap for that to be done. If it's an auto it's impossible.

          No brake or power steering fluid (these have been done earlier) but all others done.

          That's what they charged and I trust them. I'll check the list of fluids tonight.

            Might be worth checking the type of oil if you have a DPF, not a good idea putting cheap stuff in a NS.

            Cause that does sound cheap!

                  Not a good idea to put cheap stuff in anything.

                  Anyone tried K-Mart recycled oil?

                    Yes and they don't have spark plugs

                    I still agree, sounds cheap from my experience

                      Fluids sound way to cheap to me also. What was replaced and with what?

                          OK - attached is the info - they use Fuchs oils and lubricants. Certainly not a 'K-Mart' brand.

                          The engine was replaced when the oil filter o-ring split and it lost its lubrication down the freeway. Engine still ran but to be safe they (and the filter supplier) came to an agreement to replace the engine with one from a wreck. This was a few years ago and the replacement hasn't missed a beat.

                          Around town I get at least 550kms per tank and more than 600 on the highway (when not towing the boat or camper trailer). 13-14l / 100 k if my maths is right.
