  • 90k Service and Warranty Check

    Hi all,

    I live in the outer eastern suburbs but am willing to travel.

    My NT DiD is due for its 90k service and also runs out of its 5 year warranty early next year (Ex Vic Police car and I am the 3rd owner).

    Where is the best Mitsubishi dealer to take the car to for this service. I am after an honest dealer who will look at the car and do any warranty work that is needed.

    I love this vehicle and want to keep it in top condition for as long as possible. It hopefully will see us out for the next 15 years or so.

    I really appreciate the help given in this forum. I just wish I knew more so I could contribute sometimes.

    Regards

    Chris.

      Hi Chris, I phoned a few MMAL dealers I am in Lara....I think Knox Mits. seemed the best we did have a forum member who worked there & the service guy seemed switched on too however I settled for Werribee Mits because i bought the car there & the service manager X2 have been replaced and the guy running the show is honest & does a good job. I would take the advice from Lizard about a good independent too. I paid $1200 in Darwin for my 90,000km service but felt it was a case..."you've got no where else to take it so we have got you by the short & curlies" Good luck with the vehicle. Rob

        Absolutely correct, go to an independent, get your service done at a fraction of what MM will charge and they have no reason to hide things that need doing under warranty.

          MMA dealer quoted $1300 for 45k service, local guy quoted $850 so I gave MMA the option to beat the $850 and told them not to bother matching it that they had to beat it. They came back with $800 for full 45k service. I have not had much luck with MMA with warranty stuff but I will give them 1 go at servicing and if they stuff that they are history.

            And you think they will complete all items required? Would prefer to take it somewhere trusted, even if it cost more. Appreciate that the independent may not be trusted either though.

              The problems I have had with MMA were warranty related. Took more than 5 visits to fix some thing as it was a intermittent problem. They did change something every time I took it to them until it was fixed and as this service is oils and filters I figured they cant really F__k that up and its easy enough to check if they have been changed or not.

                Isn't 45K a major service?

                  No valve adjustment as they do that at 30k.

                    Hmmm, I thought the valve adjustments were 45 as well...

                      Thanks guys for your advice.

                      I recall now that the RACV can do a 'warranty check' where they inspect the vehicle just before warranty runs out and gives you a list of what is wrong to take to MM.

                      I might look into this as well.

                      I will also talk to the mechanics suggested by pauld and see what they can do for me.

                      Regards

                        RACV, hit and miss with the quality of the person doing the work. If going to mechanic anyway they can do for you, on a hoist.

                          Not sure about newer models but my book just says inspect, which means listen, every 15K. I choose to do mine every 45K but I offset to 60, 105, 150 etc because 45, 90, 135 etc is a major service.

                            60,000km Service

                            Hi Fellas,

                            Had the 60,000km service done today at the local MM dealer. Capped price $580

                            Supplied our own oil.

                            Also got the auto trans service done (boy that oil is exxy), and the oil changed in the rear diff lock (ARB). ($400 in total for these two services, inc the oil).

                            Total was $1000.

                            Pretty happy with that, as they also did the tappett adjustment.

                            Cheers,
                            Sally

                              Hi Guys,

                              Just had the 90,000 km service done on our GLS, it's on a lease so not eligible for capped price service. Total cost $1115.40 inc GST.... WOW.

                              Cheers,
