Hey guys,

I got my discovery last June optioned out totaling 85k. V6 Supercharged.

Recently my service light came on at 8100 miles so I took it in at my local reputable dealership and was quoted $444 and all they changed was the oil. Is that normal for this car? Btw this is my first Land Rover vehicle and I also recently picked up a 2018 RRSTD6 so should I expect to continue to pay these prices? I do think that price is a little steep for just an oil change.

Let me know!

welcome to the forums!

lesson #1: dealerships are after your money! you'll want to do as much as you can yourself, and establish a trust relationship with an independent specialist for the rest

Sounds a little high, but likely par for the course. They usually do an inspection and rotate the tires as well from my experience, but that’s not always the case. +1 on Rev’s advice - do as much as you can yourself, and find a really good indie guy for the stuff you can’t tackle on your own. I can do an oil change using good synthetic myself for about $45-60, and would be far cheaper than the dealer if you took it to an independent guy, so you can save yourself a ton of money doing that. I like doing it myself because I know it’s being done right and I save the most money, but if you aren’t comfortable with that, a good independent shop is very valuable, especially with these complex trucks.

I just finished up with a 48k mile service to include Oil Change with oil additive "might be gimmicky but it was only a few bucks more" tire rotation, 38 point inspection of just the overall vehicle health, checking suspension, all fluids, mechanical components ect, Brake Fluid flush and replacement for $300. Plus the car was clean from a few days prior but they washed and detailed it even better for me, tire shine, rain-x the windows, and it looked phenomenal. Plus I got a loaner RR Sport for the day while they did the service. My service guy also offered to bring my car back to my house and pick up loaner so I didn't have to drive down to the dealer later that evening. This is JLR Colorado Springs and I can say their Customer Service is top notch. I'm lucky I have a great dealer and relationship with them. Some though are not as good as others though.

Just be lucky you don't have a Porsche Cayenne S. My wifes previous car and at the dealer in Hawaii it was a $480 oil change LOL.
