Made my first visit to the dealer today

Postby RonBranam12 » Thu Apr 14, 2022 8:12 am

Purchased the Quest at slightly less than 40k in September. Hit 45k late last month so took it in for an oil change and 45K service. $436. Here's the breakdown.

QTY PART NUMBER DESCRIPTION LIST AMOUNT
2 83498 Labor $230.98
1 PG4612 OIL FILTER 10.07 $10.07
1 11026-JA00A WASHER DRAIN 0.48 $0.40
5 999BK-00W20C0 0W20 BULK 9.50 $47.50
1 27277-JA00C FILTER-AIR 37.09 $37.09
1 BG703 FRIGI CLEAN 16.61 $16.61
1 BG2984 INDUCTION KIT 63.46 $63.46
1 BG115 MOA EXTENDED LIFE 15.6 $15.60

Question 1: Are the last 3 items - and the labor for it - worth it at 45k? Keep in mind I had no knowledge of anything done prior to purchase.
Question 2: If Question 1 is yes, how often should this be done?

PS: When I typed this, all the columns aligned. Is there any way to keep them aligned when posting. I'll admit, I'm a little OCD about it.

The short answer is, no. There is a work around, but it's not really worth the effort. Type a character in the empty spaces, then use the color tag to change them from black to white. This will essentially render them invisible while retaining the spacing you desire.

I just assumed the other two were part of the induction kit.

If memory serves one is a HVAC cleaner and the other an oil additive.

Yep, you are right. Just as I thought but did not say, something to pad their profit margin.
