Just had the 48K 2 year service done. As I mentioned I'm on a $250 capped price service with the dealer I bought the car from- which is 68 kms from home. When I had the warranty work done after a breakdown a few months back, the dealer who is 15kms away quoted around $675 for that service- oh well, I like driving the TH anyways.
A couple of interesting things transpired when I dropped it in (before retiring to the coffee shop for a 4 hour wait). Service guy advised that the car may need the rotor arm rebalanced- (or re-somethinged) and if it did, $22 if I wanted it. Ok, I'm getting a cheap service anyway- and yep- surprise- it did need it
The next thing he suggested was an engine de-carbon (Whut?) Just a $100. I said yes, but never heard of that puppy before.
End result, the car is going noticeably better - not that I thought it was going sluggish before the service. I took off from the first set of lights when I left the yard using the usual amount of throttle and the wheels started spinning momentarily before the traction control systems kicked in.
Has anyone else been offered the rotor arm and carbon treatment at a service? Something improved the performance of the car- don't know what- might be a combination of a few things.
