Are you trying to find out how much the 60 000KM Service on your VW Polo Vivo should cost? Then you are at the right place. As long term car rental specialists in South Africa with offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, we have a lot of Volkswagen Polo Vivos on our fleet that we service regularly and thought that we would shed some light on the service costs of the Volkswagen Polo Vivo.
As at 14 September 2016, the 60 000KM Service Quote on your Polo Vivo should look as follows:
|1.6 Hours Labour @ R700 per hour||R1120|
|Engine Oil 3.7Litres x R107.28||R396.94|
|Spark Plugs 4 x 54||R216|
|Total Ex. VAT||R2280.94|
|Total Incl VAT||R2600.27|
In this service, you might also be asked to change the brake pads, wipers and antifreeze.
As a general rule of thumb do not change the brake pads at the dealership, you can get the exact same brake pads from Speedy at a fraction of the cost.
Is the quote for the 60 000KM Service on your Polo Vivo higher than the above? Remember to check the amount of time as well as the amount charged for labour (the further away from Sandton or Hatfield you are, the lower the labour charge). Also check the amount of oil charged, the dealerships use 210 litre oil drums with automatic dispensers, so they should not overcharge you on oil.
