I don't know if they told you this, but my dealer mentioned that if you do the work yourself, but buy the product needed through them, then you're good. Don't know if that's true, but that's what I was told. It ran me about $110, to do it myself.I think I paid around $330. It was more of a convenience and thinking the warranty might be effected if I didn't. I will do the next one myself.
my dealer quoted me :
"Good afternoon Larry, I have attached a copy of the first break in service for your maverick, The cost of the 10 hour service ( engine valve adjustment included ) parts and labor will be $1,050.00 dollars. Please let me know so we can set an appointment. Thank you…"
I'm pretty sure I'm doing my own service.
I've thought about having the dealer do mine, because it might help with warranty issues down the road. But after my first warrant work on an axle and wheel it took me 5 min of looking at it to find that "certified techinican" didn't do anything right. He shouldn't be let around toolsI was going to have first service done by dealer because they adjust the valves and want to make sure certified technician looks at it.
I would stay far away from that dealer. They are truely what I would call a STEALERSHIP!!!no kidding - that was a cut and paste from the email I received.
I looked over the list of what needs to be done on the 10 hour, and its not that much stuff.
I've done every service on every toy I have, but due to time, was going to look at having them do it.
as it stands, I'll do it in the middle of the night by candlelight before paying a grand.
If they actually did the work... My main concern is paying them and they really do not complete all the items they are suppose to. I do like the idea of it being on record at a dealer for warranty stuff down the road.Got the 10hr service on both my Maverick and Commander for free from my dealer simply because they didn't install the windshield and rock sliders on my Maverick when I purchased it. Now that's service!!!
