    Hi
    I had my annual service in June and it cost £200 and a few pence. That was in the Highlands, not a lot of competition up here you should get it for less.

    I work for a Honda dealership and we would charge around £150.

    Hi Jake69,

    I assume you are the original buyer/owner, then to keep the Honda warranty alive, as it were, I believe you should have it done by an authorised Honda dealer. They come with a 2 year warranty and I personally wouldn't want the risk of Honda having a "get out clause" should anything go wrong big time.   :003:
    The service book does state you should all services, maintenance, and repairs carried out by a Honda dealer of course and pay their rates  :023:

    Having a dealer stamp in the service book used to add to the trade-in/potential sale price, when you want to get rid of it.

    They are my thoughts only, I will have mine done by the supplying dealer, until my warranty expires. I have a Honda trained mechanic friend who will probably work on mine thereafter.

    Well done mate, I would keep with Honda and get the book stamped up, etc. just for your own peace of mind too.

    Mine will be in shortly as she is a year old and 6000 miles. Just got to bite the bullet and pay unfortunately    :111:

    That's my plan, pay for the first year service then after that DIY as the warranty will be expired when it comes up to its second service. I lost about £500 on trade in price on my 6 year old Pan Euro due to no service history, but it would have cost me at least £2000 to have it done by the dealer, no brainer IMO. I am a mechanic though.
