I just made an appointment for my 45K and just for giggles, I thought I would ask what they are charging for that particular service and I was surprised that is was only $225. I was totally expecting the sticker shock factor just like I did when I had my 30K service done for $500. So, he then procedded to tell me that the following service for 52.5K was only $100! I thought, sweet!! they are getting less and less expensive! Then he hit me with a sucker punch from left field.. yes.. the 60K service.. $800..

That is all.

Different stuff on the car have different service intervals. Sometimes you're lucky and sometimes you get whacked. A careful inspection of the service interval chart will give you some clues. The $100 at 52.5K is probably only an oil change.

BTW: The 60K service on the Freelander is $2000+ because all three cam belts get changed! :eek:

My dealer charged about $1200 for the 60k service on my DII.. thats the last time I take it there for anything other than warranty work.

$1200!!!! JEEBUS!!!

I am hitting them up for a ton of warranty work, yet again.

-Oil pan gasket is leaking like nobodies business
-5 of the 6 door speakers are smoked (self induced)
-the front axel is leaking from the breather tube
-Passanger seat barely slided back and forth, when it does, it grinds
-steering is supa-loose. Been in 4 times for this, they always blamed it on the tires and alignment, had it aligned four times and it still is loose.. now I have new shoes so I wonder what the excuse will be this time.
-brake sensor is bad that allows you to shift out of park. Loads of fun in the morning that it takes 7-8 depresses of the pedel to release the shift linkage.

Wonder if they will find anything else....

That seems cheap to me. I paid 1K for the 60k on my 1998 D1. (Well I didn't per se but that is what the Dealership charged my ex). I would have done it myself...but hey it was offered for free! :banana:

Forget that I could do that for less than $200 bucks and a few hours of my time on a nice Saturday afternoon ;) Which is what I also do... you want something done right you gotta do it yourself or hire someone that actually thinks of you a client not the next $100 bill.

Just wondering since I've been told by members of our club that warranties do not dictate where you have your scheduled maintenance done. I say you might want to check with your extended warranty carrier if they require that they have to be done by a stealer. Mine doesn't, so I buy the parts and take it to an independent rover repair facility and just pay for labor. Just keep all your receipts.

I do remember reading somewhere in the LR maintenance book something similar to......preferably, scheduled maintenance should be performed by a dealership. To me, the word preferably does not imply exclusivity. ;)

Ahh.. I forgot about this thread!

Mine goes in on Wednesday for the 60K. It has to be performed at a shop with reciepts, otherwise my extended warranty is null and void. I found a great indy mechanic that specializes in Rovers. It's gonna save me $400. I still have to spend $600 though :( and yes.. the dealer upped the ante to $1050 for the service.

You know, I am always amazed how Rover owners think they are the only people getting stuck with the big tickets when doing a 60K. That is the largest service for the truck and is about the same as any other 4wheeler done at a dealer. I know 2 top mechanics who charge about the same thing as the dealer and sometimes more, especially if they do all that is required to keep them running off the road.
Most people can save 2/3rds of this charge by doing it at home on your drive way. Buy good parts and learn what makes your truck tick.
