« on: October 14, 2017, 07:26:53 PM »
Has anyone got any idea how much it costs to service a Mazda 3 2017 model it's coming up for its first service

Thanks

My first service (March 2016) on a 2015 model was £130.

Wow that is good - is that in London??

Also on another note had yours got a washer fluid light when you are low?
I noticed mine has not got one as I ran out the other day - 66 plate sport Nav 3?

Cheers

Not got a clue what mine cost as I bought a service package, but £130 to change the oil and filter isn't the greatest bargain ever.

I too paid £600 for a 3 year service plan and thought £130 was a little steep for a first service, I don't think the dealership meant to invoice me however thinking back to the days when I had motorcycles that was peanuts for a first service.

I don't know - I paid about the same for my mk1's first service back in Dec 2006 at my local (and still using it) main dealer in Hertfordshire, which at the time was cheaper than all others I found within my reach.  I suspect London would be more expensive.  I would say that Mazda main dealers are middle to upper middle-of-the road on servicing costs.  If you think Mazda isn't cheap, go to a Honda dealer.  Its one of the reasons why I decided on a Mazda3 instead of a Honda Civic when I bought my car - the servicing costs were about 15-20% higher at the time.  Best to get the first 3 services done at a main dealer (though its worth shopping around for the best price [some do price match if you're lucky] and quality of customer service [probably more important than price alone]) to ensure any goodwill if the car should develop a fault within its warranty period and perhaps beyond.  It can give you a decent amount of leverage if you're going to keep the car more much more than 3 years if something does go pop.

I paid 170 gbp for my 1st service and to my dismay, they haven’t rotated the tyres and changed the windshield wipers. Sucks eh? 😩

A couple of things - unless you specifically ask for such work to be done (make sure it gets put on the worksheet that you sign before they commence the service), they won't be as they aren't on the list of standard items on ANY service (including the big services).  It's likely that most main dealerships (and I would've thought most good indies for older cars) will rotate the tyres (where possible)  for free, as long as you ask them; as regards replacing the wiper blades, that will always be an extra - they may say they need replacing (especially if the MOT is going to be done on the same day or by them in the near future), but again it's down to the owner to ask for this because it is chargeable.

I'd personally NEVER get wiper blades replaced at the service as they almost always overcharge for doing so - you can very easily buy and change them (each in less than a minute) online (I find that the Bosch ones are best) on Amazon and the more reputable Ebay sites (about £20 for the front two, about £12 for a rear wiper blade) - far cheaper than doing so (same stuff) at Halfords (at least 50% more expensive) as well as at the dealership.

It's easy to see when they need changing anyway, as long as you clean them reasonably regularly.  I find that they need changing every 1-2 years for annual mileages from 10k - 20k, every 3 or so if you do less.  How long they last really depends on a) keeping them clean and b) if they face the sun quite a bit, as the rubber-type material (like tyres) will deteriorate quicker if regularly left in the sun (heat/UV damage).
