    Default 4007 servicing costs - RIP OFF !!!

    Watch out for the 120,000 KM service which costs in excess of $1,000 plus the transaxle oil change and the DCS transmission service with the auto fluid costing from Peugeot $1,700 plus dollars and the filter in excess of $300.00

    The same gearbox service from Ford or Mitsubishi costs $500 for the fluid and $250 for the filter -- its bloody ridiculous and does mot do any justice to the Marque here in Australia

    I suppose the next thing is to get the NRMA or RACQ involved.

    Cheers and tears

    I'm not sure your post is clear - is a Peugeot dealer charging you $1,700 for auto fluid alone?

    Guess it always pays to ask.Most Dealers have overheads that are extremely high but that does not imo is definitely not an excuse to 'price gouge' PLUS a lot of greedy people fail to realize that it BURNS customers & instead of telling their friends how great the car is they tell EVERYONE not to buy the car as they are a RIPP OFF.

    Could always [however try one of those so called 'GOOD CARS' and pay 6 or 7 or 8 grand for a service PLUS Tons of depeciation-more than a Pug will cost to buy..
    Surely someone on A/F will tell you where to go !!!!-That is of course to get your car serviced @ a reasonable price.

    P.S.Just noticed that you learn't to drive in 203 Convertible-I recall when I was about 16 seeing 203 Convertibles for sale for 20 -if only I had known where the thought was coming from that I should buy one!!Quid

    The Dealer is doing the right thing by me and offering me the fluid at trade price $1700 _ I have not reached 120,000 yet but wanted to change the Transmission fluid since the problems that I had earlier experienced --- the rest of the issues came out in the discussion. Up to that time the dealers had not any idea of the cost... they were most embarrassed.

    As for the 203 convertible - it was in PNG and Mum and Dad were looking after the car for a friend.

    more rip off costs replacement front disc brake rotors cost $230.00 each and the pads $290 for a set.

    Come on get real its just a rebadged Mitsubishi

    Cheers

    One more reason not to buy an automatic. $1700 just for fluid? That has to be a mistake or, as the OP said, a rip off.
    You sure they didn't use ink jet printer refill?

    This obviously leads to the question: much does Mitsubishi charge for this fluid?

    More obviously it leads to the question, who makes the fluid, what is it known as on the shop shelf as neither Peugeot or Mitsubishi actually make the stuff, they just buy it in from somewhere.

    Similar problem with the Evinrude Etec outboard motors with their similarly priced 2 stroke oil.

    The fluid is made by MOTUL and is the same as ford, BMW, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz Nissan, Mitsubishi and so on --- Ford is 37.00/ltr as I said Mitsubishi is $500 for the correct quantity see http://www.motul.com/system/product_..._DCTF_(GB).pdf this is the spec referenced in the service box documents --

    The latest info I have found out is that the filter as fitted may be a cleanable stainless steel one or a paper one but only Peugeot know and the don't tell you --- so you may not need the filter.

    Gives me the sh**** I am contacting the RACQ next week to get them to complain.

    cheers

    Reminds me of the one and only time I took my car to Peugeot for a service. At 30,000km I was told I needed new brake pads and disc machining, possibly disc replacement if they were under size. Never got them replaced and now approaching 80,000km, still not scraping metal. I wonder why we don't trust them?

    Meggsy,

    just got of the phone to my local mitsi dealer to book in my only non Peugeot, my Triton 4x4 Ute for its 160,000 service and asked the question how much for the trans oil for an Outlander and he said $345.00 + GST. pays to look around.

    Yes it does but the outlander does not have the DCS or SST as Mitsubishi call it that's on the EVO --- don't start me on the other rip off brake rotors about $300 each and pads $250 for a set ... all up from EAI its less than the cost of pads and that includes freight to QLD
