yeah the shop wa
yeah, the shop was upselling you for suggested routine service interval work. The cabin air filter you can do in a heartbeat, Engine air filter go get a K and N filter and tell them to pound sand as you wash it, spray some oil on it and reinstall it. 5 minutes work on your part. Plugs should be good to 85,000 miles as they are iridium plugs, brake flush is a shop money maker and usually causes other problems down the way, A 20 dollar bottle of quality fuel injection system cleaner poured in the tank usually does a great job. PS I do however recommend adding a bottle of Chevron fuel system additive every 4th tank as this helps control issues we used to replace fuel filters for, crappy fuel conditions at pumps. Hope this helps and yes I know, . 45 years a mechanic. But an honest one the whole time. I got my money from repeat appreciative customers who trusted me to do them right!I brought 2014 kia soul, with 57k miles, for oil an change and tire rotation and i feel like im being scammed. I got a txt saying the following things needed to be addressed immediately:
1) fuel induction service: 199.99$
2) brake flush: 149.95$
3) spark plug replacement: 304.11$
fair condition suggested:
1) cabin air filter: 89.95$
2) engine air filter: 69.95$
What do you all think? The repair rep at the dealership says he does not see my FUEL INDUCTION ever being done and its a priority it gets done.
When i asked him for a copy of the maintenance schedule he was referring to as it was his only copy. Lol really.
also anyone know if i do my own spark plug change with approved kia spark plugs and have receipt of the parts that this will not screw up my warranty on the car? Such a ridiculous easy job, why so exp?
thanks in advance
