Cambelt change £250 including VAT, at Redditch Volkswagen not sure about other dealers.

This was for a 1.9 diesel but I think most are the same price.

Usual price is around £350, they said this is a special offer but not sure how long the deal lasts for.

That's certainly a very specific location and deal.

Aargh. Avoid main dealers at all costs........... unless you can really afford their extreme costs. Find a good 'local guy' .

Cam belt and water pump change for my VW 130bhp diesel was £359.47 (local greasy garage). They wanted £250 just for the belt change so dealer costs here seem OK provided nothing else is required.

Dealers will always try and rip you off.

What a stupid attitude. The deal is posted at £250 for a Cambelt change, so how do you quantify that as an extreme cost??

No you don't, you need to use genuine parts at a VAT registered garage who carry out the full manufacturer's service schedule.

You've been ripped off.
I paid £120 for a cambelt change at a local garage (I provided the parts at a cost of around £35) for a Renault Scenic.
Renault wanted nearly £400!
Local garage man gets my vote every time, unless the stupid car throws a wobbler and I have to go to Renault so they can plug their computer in, charge me £73 for the privilige, and then hit me over the head with a wet fish when they tell me how much something costs. By the time I have finished laughing and rolling about at the price, I have rolled out of the showroom, back into my car and have driven to local garage man to pay him a few pence.

That's a good idea to an extent, but some of my experiences have been that when i've taken my car to an independent garage that charges half the amount for labour then a main dealer they've taken at least twice as long to diagnose and fix it.

well maybe for Audi but my Peugeot and Chrysler warranties are very specific about it being approved or a dealer

illegal to apply these conditions I'm afraid. Has been the case in the EU for several years.

Im pretty sure thats against the law now to state this in the warranty conditions. I remember the law coming in as it was a big con to make you use their overpriced garages....

£250 is a decent price and would look to pay this at an independent. I believe stafford audi also do this price. Is what i paid to get my 110 tdi done at an indi

But bomberman i dont see why they charged you £110 extra to change the waterpump, as afaik its easy to change when doing the cambelt...

BTW i think everyone should get their waterpump done at the same time as its easy to change and if it does go at some point all the labour will have to be done/paid for again. They are known to fail.

difficult to comment without knowing which engines and which models.

eg some audis need the front end of the car removing (bumper/rad/intercooler etc), some golfs need engine mounts undoing. Obviously those are expensive whereever you go.

I would say that £250 sounds a reasonable price at a main dealer.

All those holding up the rules about warranty and serviceing - yes its all very well getting it done elsewhere, the problem arises when you are required to prove that it was done to the manufacturers standard. Or when you are asking for a goodwill payment (ie car goes bang the week after the warranty expires) - thats where things get sticky.

Not that I'm defending main dealers - I only use them for parts or things where the fact that a main dealer has done it will be a significant factor to the next owner

There's no way a cam belt should ever go under warranty however.

I haven't got a VW. I haven't got a cambelt either:p

[COLOR="Navy"]Depends on the warranty.

If it is the manufacturer's warranty on a new car, then you are right and you can (in theory) use any garage. (However, you may have to prove that they used the correct parts and carried the service out to the correct schedule if you are making a claim. The resale value of your car may also be affected - and for some prestige cars, they may be unsaleable).

On the other hand, if it is an extended warranty on a used car, then the company providing the warranty can impose any conditions that they wish. My (2001) BMW is covered under BMW's Extended Warranty - one of the conditions of this is that the car must be serviced at an official BMW dealership. BMW are perfectly within their rights in imposing this condition when selling me the warranty.[/COLOR]

you can`t really compare cars when it comes to cam belt changes, I could do rovers / civics in about 1 hr they were easy. VW/Audis can be a cow of a job and take about 4 hours. The parts for a vw cam belt change come in at about £100 but really the water pump should be done at the same time and poss the aux belt so £250 for a dealer is a good price.
#23
Different cars may well have different labour times for a cambelt change, but you can guarantee an independant garage will be cheaper than a main dealer. My bike and van is still under warrenty and i never use main dealers for servicing because of their rip off prices, as long as you use genuine manufacturer parts they cannot invalidate your warrenty.
This deal is cold.
#24
VW have a price promise (don't know about Audi dealers) where if another garage within 5 miles gives a cheaper quote using original VW parts, they will match it. Having said that I would go with the place that was cheaper to begin with, providing they are reputable.
