A year on and the first service is due 9 June 2008
I took the Citroen into the main dealers for its first service this morning.
Picked it up about 1pm, no major problems just a slow puncture in the rear offside tyre. The total cost was £162.54 which didn't include fixing the tyre, will take it Kwik-Fit later.
Two years on and the second service is due 9 June 2009
I took the Citroen C1 into the dealers this morning for its second service. One of the mechanics there said at the 2 year service it really needed the brake fluid changing, at a cost of £39.00 I have worked on the Land Rover brakes often enough to know that this cost is reasonable, especially for a main dealer so I told them to go ahead.
About an hour later they phoned to say the tyres were close to the limit and the two rear ones had slow punctures so they needed new ones. The Michelin ones were about £68.00 each so I checked on Kwik-Fit and that seemed reasonable too. I didn't want budget tyres on this car since we use it daily and better tyres last much longer, so we'll see!
|Carry out 20000 mile/ 2 year service||£112.00|
|Drain plug gasket||£1.23|
|2 Tyres Michelin||£132.00|
|Carried out brake fluid change||£20.00|
The garage sent me a SMS txt message about 4:30pm saying the car would be ready about 5:00pm which was when I collected it.
Third Service and MOT June 2010
I changed the windscreen wiper blade at the beginning of June 2010 at a cost of about £16.00 from Halfords.
The front tyres had been getting close to the limit for a couple of months so I had two new Goodyear Duragrip ones fitted at a total cost of £130.00 including balancing and disposal of the old ones.
The service and MOT were done by the main dealer on June 4th at a total cost of £129.15 including the MOT test which cost £30.00 so the cost this year all came to £275.15
March 2011 Clutch problem
See the main page for details but the whole job took just one day and cost £322.80
June 2011 MOT
On Thursday 2 June 2011 the Citroen C1 passed its second MOT test at a cost of £49.00
November 1 2011 Power Steering
The power steering ecu was faulty, a second-hand one was tried and this worked, so the repair cost £288.00
June 12 2012 MOT and service
The Goodyear Duragrip tyres had lasted 2 years, they would have lasted longer but I think they may have failed the MOT so I got them replaced with 2 155/65 T 14 Kumho KH17 75T tyres at a total cost inc VAT of £90.00 from Best Tyres at Sandyford.
MOT and full service was done on 12 June 2012
