Re: How much would a typical 60k service cost? (iamnotmad)

Dealer quoted me $400 some odd dollars. Go to an indie shop and it'll be much cheaper.

Depends on the labour cost (ours is $75/hr - $60/hr when you do factory scheduled maintenance), but some dealers add on work. If you request specific volvo 60k service, it's about $400-$550.

Man, my dealer is $95 and hour! My last 60k service on the SR was over $480.

Re: How much would a typical 60k service cost? (VolvokidS60R)

I did much of the stuff myslef (oil, all filters, and plugs; Its pretty simple if you have a bit of time and some basic tools....) per the book, and had my dealer do an inspection. They spent an hour, charged me for a half hour, and even adjusted the sunroof. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I you dont want to do any of it yourself, as others have said, just make a list of what you want done and talk to the dealer. Dont just say you want the XX mile service <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>
