First Service A

Had my first Service A completed yesterday (1 year, but only 4,000 miles). All went while. The question I have, is $238.79 in the ballpark for this service. Labor = $130, Parts = $74 and Shop/Disposal fee = $29.23.
No tire rotation at this time. Also what can I expect for the cost of Service B?

Somewhere in our forum I saw a discussion about how the "Close Center Compartment" warning light comes on when exiting the vehicle. I have this false warning and the dealer has ordered replacement parts under warranty.

One more item of interest. The day after purchasing the vehicle my wife noticed distortion on the Multimedia screen. My guess is someone used the wrong cleaner when prepping the vehicle. The dealer has also ordered replacement of this unit under warranty. $1,135.98!!!

If you are wondering about only 4,000 miles in one year. WE HAD 9 MOMTHS OF WINTER HERE IN WISCONSIN LAST YEAR AND 6' OF SNOW!

I just had my first Service A as well -- $216.17. The brake fluid flush was extra on top of that.

Had mine done at 5570 as it was just over a year old. $240 American. BUT, they did not change the filter and I caught them! I checked, and the filter case was dusty, no way to change it and not disturb the dust. Confirmed by taking it to another dealer. They gave me a new filter as I did not want them messing with it again. Billed me for a test drive, but vehicle tracking showed no such thing happened (ALWAYS use that!). I brought this to their attention as well, tough snot. Meant to write this up but never got around to it. Too pissed.

You don't rotate the tires on an SLC 43. Different sizes. Just don't let them rotate your spark plugs. Dealers are dealers.
