Take a look here for an idea of cost. Service Cost - Civinfo Wiki

If you have a few dealers within reasonable travelling distance, then shop around as prices do seem to differ considerably.

Inchcape in Writtle are very helpful, you could try them.

You could always ask the most local dealer to you if they will price match as a lot of dealers will. That is assuming they aren't the cheapest in the first place.

Southend is meant to be shutting matey, no idea when though.


Looks like a drive to Grays or Writtle

Agreed. Mine had it's 25k service on Friday and flew through. Only needed rear brake pads. Front pads still the same and tyres still the same from new too.

Staff there are very helpful.
Did you know Inchcape Writtle move at the end of the month to Springfield? Where the old Volvo garage was.

Off the roundabout Steve? Just after the Boreham interchange?

Mum used to take her Volvo there.

Hi,
Does anyone know if i get my Civic serviced at http://www.tdi-north.com/ , How will this affect my warranty? As Tdi-north isnt a honda dealer but is 70 cheaper.

If they use the Honda servicing schedule and parts they recommend then no problem. (They're obviously VAT registered)

Yes you'll be fine and your warranty will remain intact.

I assume you have seen this?

I really need to learn to read things fully, sorry.
