I've no experience with V6 4motions but my 2002 Bora 1.6 16v cost about £240 for the 40k service at the dealer. I also had it taken off the long life servicing and put onto 10k intervals instead. That was about the standard price when I called around but as the V6 is a more complicated and more powerful engine, it would make sense if the cost to service it was higher. Did you get any other quotes? Thats probably the best way of seeing if £330 is reasonable.
No wonder you were broke! Bad luck mate. I've noticed servicing costs vary greatly depending on where you are. I pay less now I live in Edinburgh than I used to in Manchester. Perhaps they work faster up here or something......
Can someone tell me what the Haldex service is? I'm probably being daft but I've actually never heard of it. Is it only relevent to diesel cars? If so I'm only 8k away on my Bora TDI, so I better start saving!! I certainly never heard any mention of it on my old 1.6 16v and I spoke to three different dealers who all quoted similar money, so if its for diesels only that would make sense. Can someone explain it to me.....please?
