Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 10 months ago.

ok, thanks for replying, i will send you over the sheet that we follow for the service guidelines. depending on the time and mileage it can vary from 300$ to 800$ also depending on the dealer. they all do not charge the same. i will forward you the sheet. Lou P.

here it is.

Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 10 months ago.

its hard to say what the exact cost would be as we usually check over the car and see if wear and tear items are needed as well. so in essence if you just bought the car or dont know the service history, then you start with a oil change and have them look over the car to see where the car stands and then go from there. hope this helps, Lou P.
