Question Modus - is this expensive for a service?

Rather than start a new thread I thought I'd post here as I'm in a similar situation.

I only passed my driving test last year, I know very little about cars and I drive a 2005 Modus 1.6 Auto, with just over 20k miles on the clock. It is almost out of warranty and I have it booked in for a full service and it's first MOT next week. I am taking it to a main dealer (the same company I bought it from but not the same branch) and they have told me it will be 320 for the service. This seemed steep to me - is this the going rate? It includes parts, labour and VAT. The person I spoke to on the phone said it was a "big service" and the car would be there for 5 hours. I just want to make sure I'm not being ripped off!

Hi lass,

320 does sound steep - did they detail what the service would consist of? The total for my Service and MOT was just under 165 - 50 for the MOT, the rest for service and parts and labour ( oil , oil filter and air filter). I can't imagine it including a cambelt change as the engine doesn't fit the two requirements (every 5 years or 72k miles) so I'd try to find out what that price gets you.

Your best option may be to find an independant garage - you say main dealer, which I guess means Renault dealership?

I hope this helps, however one of our more technical members should be along soon
