60,000 Service for Civic - suggestions

Hi There,

I'm planning to do a 60,000 miles service for my Honda Civic 2000. Our dealer is offering service at $388 (it says regular price is $488). Plus any extra charges for parts to be replaced.

Is it a reasonable price?

Also do you have any references where I can do this service here in Bay Area (East/South Bay).

thanks,
W

Ok for starters no price from the stealership is reasonable, unless its free. I would check all fluids, and belts. Feel free to examine/change your O2 sensor and spark plugs. Might need new tires. I'd do an oil change and trans fluid change. Just change the trans fluid, don't flush it. Also look in your book, it should say what needs to be inspected at 60,000 under the maintenance section. The only time you might ever consider doing it is if you have the extended warranty. They like to not cover stuff if you fail to do the maintenance. Otherwise just do what I said and you should be good to go.

Thanks for the replies.

I've checked with dealer and they says that as per Honda Civic Owner's manual they will do the servicing. Now you may call me idiot as I haven't read the manual yet.

So going back to my question: if I've to get the professional help (as you can see my knowledge with car here), how much would be reasonable cost?

Also any recommendiations to get things done?

I found this discussion forum through google. I'm just upset why I didn't do it early.

Thanks again for your expert comments,
W

Re: 60,000 Service for Civic - suggestions

depends what needs to be done at 60k. usually trans fluid is every 30k, coolant may need changing, brake fluid if its been 3 yrs since the last flush, engine oil maybe, spark plugs, air filter, cabin filters, battery, it all depends what youve already done recently.

Re: 60,000 Service for Civic - suggestions

I called the dealer and at 60,000 miles all they really do is inspect the car.They said they change the cabin and air filter,that is easy to do yourself.Change transmission fluid.All that is drain and fill.They want $325.00 for that.I don't see what all the money is for.

Lol, so true.

Most of the time, the dealer is just gonna take you for a ride. Unless there's something terribly wrong with your car, just do the basic maintenance stuff yourself (spark plugs, oil change, check battery, etc...)
