I'm new to this forum and love my car so much that I would like some advice on maintenance. I've bought my new Clio Late Feb 2016 (4 month old) with only 15 miles on for £11,750. It was a 1 owner (Renault) and bought from the Renault used car garage during the sale. Car was registered by Renault to class as used car. I got 2 years free servicing too
My car is due for it service on 24th Sep (1st registration of the car) and will have about 10,500 miles on it. I have previously serviced my cars (
mainly and air filter) every 6-7k. I am wondering if Renault will change the
and air filter on the first service. Does anyone know?
I am thinking of bumping my 1st service up to plan B so that it does (paying the difference) if they offer me this. So far I have rang customer service up and they have advised:
Service 1 18,000/1 Year £129.00 (I get free)
Service 2 36,000/2 year £159.00 (I get free)
Timing belt 90,000/6 Years £399.00
Plus water pump if needed £150.00
Coolant 90,000/5 Years £89.00
Air filter 36,000/4 Years £29.00
Fuel filter 36,000/4 Years £69.00
Brake fluid 73,000/3 Years £39.00
Cabin filter 18,000/2 Years
Parts cost (OEM if serviced else where later on or interim)
Air filter £20.65
Pollen filter £28.02
Screen washer £1.84
Elf 5w/30 5 Ltr £49.08
All prices as from 10.03.2016
Based on the above i don't think they will change the air filter or pollen filter on my 1st service. What do you guys recommend? My plan would be once it is out of warranty to service it every 6-7k (
and Air filter). I will be also following the guideline for coolant, brake fluid etc.
I was also told that the EDC 6 speed dual clutch gear box does not need an
change for life?
Also i have notice a stone paint chip (paint has gone and showing the metal) approx 3-4mm in size, what do you recommend.
Anyways thanks for your comment and much appreciate any of your advise.
