Hi all,

I have a 2013 Peugeot 107 and its just gone pass 19k miles so i work out the service is due around 20K which will fall in March or April. The car was last serviced by the dealer so I do not know the cost of this so it will be my first time I have took it for a service myself.

I plan on getting a few quotes from non dealers and dealers just to compare the prices and to see what is included in each quote but wanted to know what sort of price would one pay for a full service. Also suggests in the service manual to change the brake fluid every 2 years so i was going to get this done at the same time as the service.

First quote i have been given is by a local non dealer but a peugeot specialist was £190 + VAT which includes the following. Full service which includes oil filter, oil, air filter, fuel filter, pollon filter, plugs if petrol, engine flush, fuel treatment, brake fluid, check brakes etc.

With regards to engine flush and fuel treatment are these ok to use in a new car or do the manufactures not recommend this as it does not say anything in the service manual about not using them.

Many Thanks
Chris

Neither would I. And the price seems rather high to me. Price up the bits online at Euro Car Parts.

Would it need new plugs already? If not I reckon you could get all the service parts yourself for less than £50, and a couple of hours labour should be all it takes to do the work.

Well am having it serviced on Monday by a non dealer. they are changing all the normal items inc spark plugs etc even that the car has only done 20K they suggest its best to still change even when Peugeot say's they don't change them.

Does it do any harm doing a full service at 20k or is it best as a preventive measure

There's no reason you can't have a full service every time if you'r prepared to pay the money, it does seem a bit of a waste of hard earned cash
though. Personally I would stick to the manufacturers schedule.

One thing that I do is to have an oil and filter change half way between scheduled services as I do a very small mileage, also it's a good idea
if you only ever do short journeys....

Hi

I thought as it's my first service on this car as I am 2nd owner to do a full one this time then follow the manufacturs guidelines after this service.

I always service my 107 myself and parts wise you would be looking at about £60 for the oil, plugs, filters etc.

It's stupidly easy to do it yourself and everything is quite easy to access and remove. The air filter can be a pain to clip back in but that's about the worst of it.

With it being a relatively new car and average mileage getting it done at a garage wouldn't be a bad idea as it would ensure the car has a full service history.As the car gets older it wouldn't hurt the resale value too much if it was self maintained.
