Re: 4 year service + belts and tensioners, is this reasonable?
Brien N, looks like we are in a similar boat. Nudging, that 12,000 recorded. Do still fuss it though, why not keep one for best, if cicumstances permit. People often say, ( think they may want to buy it) " Whats your'e car worth then mate?") reply, "What it would cost to buy a new one." daft maybe? Going on your service costs, suppose that includes brake check, brake fluid replacement,coolant replaced, plus that essential oil and filter, air cleaner, pollen filters, lubricate hinges, pivot points, check lights,everything on the service schedule in fact for low mileage servicing. Fortunately, I can, so have done, most of this myself. Sounds quite an outlay to me though.Of course, the belt's, and asociated, are a different issue, which I will probably ask that recommended chap on the Cambs./Herts border to do, if he can fit me in.
