Which Service?

Recommended Posts

Just been to see Mr T to book a service in...the Rav is a T180 March 07 (5 and half years old) 35000 miles and 6 mths late being serviced!! :o

I was quoted standard service - Oil & filter, kick the tyres etc £139.

When I punched the details in Mr T website it said Major + service £299 plus couple extra fluid changes??

Who's right??? :o I'm confuzzed!! :(

On the 4.2 the services alternate annually between 10K miles intermediate & 20K miles major. The main thing seems to be that the services need to be done at least once a year even if the mileage hasn't been reached. So it's yr1 = 10K inter, yr2 = 20K major, yr3 = 10K inter, etc.

The 4.3 may be different mileage periods but I'd have thought that an annual service was still mandatory.

I suspect it's Mr T the garage.

If your previous services were on schedule - i.e annually because of your low mileage - then your last service would have been a major at 4 years. You now due an intermediate, and six months late getting it done.

[unless you want to go straight to the next major - six months early?]
