I know it has been a while, but i just felt the need to add that the invoice shows that they checked ALL oil levels.
To me this would include Gearbox right? Well funny as my gearbox died 4 weeks ago, the oil in it had a preservative added by previous owner and it has turned into a paste, the gearbox specialist told me it's been like that and that the guys duing the service would have noticed this if they checked it.
I ended up spending $2890 on a brand new gearbox and clutch and flywheel....but yeah, just goes to show....my dad also suggested a trick he always does, before you get ur service put a mark on all ur spark plugs with a permanent marker and stick clear tape to oil lids etc...he said in his time he has had several mechanics rip him off...so not a bad idea i rekon, hey ill consider this a lesson, at least now im safe for next time, even still I will be getting a service soon to check they did everything they said they did.
