Two years service
« on: January 08, 2013, 02:13:11 pm »
Hi there,
Just a quick question for everyone, I have a Punto Evo Abarth and it's due it's 2 years service.
The vehicle has only done 7,000 miles. I called an Abarth dealer and they quoted me £350 for a full service - this includes spark plugs, oil change, filters etc.
Is this a good price or is it expensive and yes who could I contact to have it done cheaper?
Thanks

    Hi There.Im not sure if its the same as the 500 but mines coming up to 8000 on the clock and its 3rd service is due end of march.All ive had is the oil and filter change every 12 months and will be having just that on its 3rd service due to the low miles.So everytime ive had the oil and filter its just cost me around 100 mark(ish, cant remember exactly).So it might be worth clarifying if you need all that due to your low miles.
    Now with added monza fun :P

    I mentioned that it is low mileage and the dealer still insisted that it needs the full service done.

    They usually do! And they are pretty much always wrong :thumbd:

    Hi There

    I had my 2nd Year service last year and had done under 8000 and all i had done and all that is required, is oil and filter change, pollen filter (i hadn't had mine changed after 15 months) and brake fluid.

    The Servicing for all abarth models is in the General Info section on this Forum - but servicing goes off the mileage - so dealer should only be doing the above which will save you a bit!  :thumb:
