Same price as halfords
Voted HOT. As they are VAT registered this counts as Service for your service book if still under warranty, for example a KIA with a 7 year warranty.

Further 10% off available @ halfords if you sign up to student beans. You just need a child aged 17 plus with a school email account to sign up and then all halfords deals have a further 10% off.

its not a stamp in the book you need, you need proof of the work which the VAT registered receipt will give you so not pointless at all, anyway halfords is cheaper still with the studentbeans code. And say you lose your service book, are you suggesting they wont honour a warranty without an ink stamped booklet (lol)......its the invoice you need and thats what you get

I'm sure there's some codes floating around in their email news letter which might apply to this as well bringing the price down.

Just the oil and filter change is £20 more expensive from Halfords on mine. It's from £48.99 but you're only getting those 2 items (although they are the main things)
Please note: Kia UK do not maintain a centralised service record database, if the service record booklet for your car is incomplete you should contact the dealer that carried out the work

.....so even the manufaturer does not keep a record of the stamped service book, as I say, you just need to keep the VAT invoice to prove you had the work done.

There are also some extra charges to be aware of:

Some vehicles may require a sump tray to be removed in order to carry out an oil change as part of the service. If required a labour charge of either £5 or £10 (depending on the size of the tray) may apply which will be discussed and agreed with you in branch before any work is carried out.
I'm picking up a new Kia on Monday on a 2 year lease deal. I've got to cover the cost of the first service and I'll be handing the car back before the second one is due. Can I use these to do the service and keep the invoice (and a copy) or do I need to get it done in the Kia garage? The finance/lease is with ALN not Kia themselves.

You do not need the KIA dealership to do anything. You can go to anyone that can give you a VAT receipt for the work done. KIA cars do not run on some magic KIA oil etc, they use standard stuff. I remember years ago having a service on my Sharan being done at a VW dealer, in the workshop they had 50 litre barrels of Shell oil. When I asked why are you not using the branded stuff that you sell in your parts dept, they said its cheaper for them and it meets the spec - that's the VW dealer ! Learn from my mistakes, will never get a main dealer to do service work. They have no more knowledge or skill and there mechanics are actually only "technicians".

Seems reasonable to me. Some trays can be a right pain to remove.

......true, and I always removed mine from my Sharan before driving it there.
Apart from the air filter & service book stamp the Interim service doesn't seem to do anything else, apart from daft things like, check interior lights and stuff like that which you can check yourself. Not really worth an extra £45! It's quoting me £54.95 for the express which isn't too bad if they are using half decent oil, that and the filter would cost £30+

Halfords are quoting £91 for the same thing!
Handy to know. Thanks for that. So anyone who gives a VAT receipt is fine to do the servicing and it doesn't affect the warranty at all?

Check your contract. Most of my lease contracts have a clause stating that the service must be done at a main dealer. I would be surprised if it didn't.

FYI, Kia service plans are peanuts.

Compare that to my next "major" service at VW at £349 for a Polo!

agreed, the pay up front plans are very good value and I do not know if they still do it but the approved used cars with the wind back 7 year warranty are also good.

Think their retail prices have gone up a lot since 2007 when the Picanto was £6000 new on the road and in 2008 with the government trade in you could get one new for £4000 and it was only £30 a year to tax

But it's not just those 2 things is it? the express is 25 and the Interim is 39 and includes a road test. If you add the cost of the filter and the time involved in doing those extra checks, that's where the extra £45 goes. They're a business after all. Most local garages aren't under £100 Inc vat for this type of service.

For warranty you need it to be done to manufacturer's specifications, the £50 service doesn't even stamp the service book so it's not going to be anywhere near manufacturer's specifications. I think you would need to go interim or full.

Which is fine, but they are almost all noddy checks which could be done by any unqualified motorist. Also if you look at the checks they do they are all aimed at checking things they can flog you like new wiper blades. I would rather they didnt road test my car... I dont trust these outfits.
So glad I became an Engineer so I can do all this myself, it’s not so much the cost of getting outfits like this to do it, but their techs are so pushed for time they rush jobs and take shortcuts.

Oil and filter you can buy for £20-£25, I urge people to attempt this themselves, it’s not difficult, but appreciate it’s not for everyone.

By the way, much of these deals and “checkpoints” are to simply get you through the door, so they can “advise” you on replacement parts that many times you simply don’t need.

There's more to it than that. If you make a warranty claim the onus will be on YOU to PROVE it was done to manufacturer's spec. That could include the filter too (some aftermarket ones are rubbish), etc. KIA services are cheap anyway: is it really worth the risk?

Agreed but the point is a lot of people just don't know how or don't want to do these checks. I'm no mechanic but I once fitted a new air filter on my car and it was a right pest to do. Took me half an hour and my back was killing at the end hence why for people like me, this seems a great deal.

I asked about this but no charge with a Ford Focus i took in for oil and filter change.
Guy had to remove the plastic undertray but no charge.
Also my current car (BMW) doesn't have a service book it's all displayed on the infotainment screen.
Do NT have the gear to edit that ?
A lot of people seem to think as long as you get a car serviced at a VAT registered garage your fine, but this isn’t the case at all.

Manufacturers are not allowed to specify where cars get serviced, but they are allowed to specify service intervals and requirements.

As long as you you have your car serviced by a licensed garage and they use the recommended parts at the right time, you will be covered. You also need to prove it. So, a breakdown of the work done by a licensed garage (who will probably be VAT registered) is sufficient proof.

You can’t just get it serviced at any old VAT registered garage. For example on my new ST I have just picked up, Ford state that the plugs have to be replaced at 12,500 miles. I disagree with that, but it doesn’t matter. To preserve the warranty that’s what needs doing. It’s my choice where I have it done.

EDIT: make sure you can prove that they have used genuine parts too, as this is a warranty requirement.

AA members get 20% off, show your card instore

The flexibility to get serviced away from the franchise may change too, back to how it used to be before EU rules intervened on behalf of the consumer. There's a lot of consumer friendly law which will probably get weakened or ditched post-Brexit.
