Main dealer Oil change

Post by G13 V8 » Sat Aug 01, 2020 5:01 pm

Hi All,

Has anyone else has their car serviced at the main dealer, for an oil change only....

And had the tech take the car on a 7 mile “Test drive”??

I only ask as when I’ve had the car serviced previously and I’ve waited for the service, it’s never left the dealership. This one, 30 degree sunshine and opposite one of the county’s best tunnels....I had to leave it with them....I’ve got not a lot of fuel left and 7 miles added......maybe my Ferris Bueller moment!
Main dealers eh.... :roll:

Is the "Record Journeys" facility great? When mine was in for a new cargo cover under warranty a year ago they took it for a longish test drive, but they had done a few software updates so presumably had to check they hadn't broken anything. Last time it was in the test drive lasted 1.1 miles.

Did you speak to them about it and get anywhere with why they “had” to give it a test??

I’m sure mine wouldn’t have had an additional run if it was January and cold....maybe they get many V8’s in.

Time to find a good Indy I think, that’s the second local dealer (same group) to let me down. Shame jaguar, big shame....

I work as a truck technician at a main dealer. We always give a truck a road test after any fluids have been changed to make sure the oil and fuel filters do not leak .After 36 years in the job i have had several that have not sealed fully.
