Honda Fit: Scheduled Service
February 23, 2007
I am an idiot. I know, I know, I hear you're howls of protest but let me convince you - no, really you need convincing.
I just spent more money on one compact disc than it cost to service the Honda Fit. It's a long story but let's just say I wasn't intending to "win" the auction and now my Pay Pal account is $45 lighter...If you must know it was for the Eric Martin Band. Gotta love the 80s.
In the past we've been surprised by how much the manufacturer recommended service can cost on some cars. Prices in excess of $150 are not uncommon. We just spent $72 on servicing the Hyundai Azera and that was a slightly discounted price. The Hyundai service did include a tire rotation while the Fit's service did not.
Total cost for the Fit's first service - $36.64. Inexpensive cars should have inexpensive service. Well done Honda.
We used Honda of Santa Monica and were very pleased. The car was ready earlier than promised and our service writer, Howard, did not keep us waiting at drop off or pick-up.
