Regardless of what they actually charge, if they told you $44, then you should only be paying $44. Don’t let them stick it to you like that. That’s their mistake, not yours.
Went to a 9am appt.today at a Honda dealer in Knoxville to have the emission recall done.While there i figured I'd ask how much a oil change cost & they replied "$44 plus tax".I am a automotive tech with plenty of tools but i figured it would cost me around $30 for parts so i figured for another $14 it was worth it to have them do it & let them dispose the old oil.When i went to pay for the service..he said $90 please! Turns out they charge $44 labor PLUS parts charge! Meanwhile we charge $25 total where i work to change oil in cars!!!!!!!!!!
My same feelings. I had to call the service dept at one place IN route and Im like you ready now. I had to cab it home and cab it back so I wasnt playing service games. The only tome I have needed service was at 600 so far..What I don't like is the waste of my time. I would let the dealer perform my oil change if they would make an appointment, do the service and let me ride away. Who knows I might even buy something while I am standing around and waiting the 30 or so minutes it takes, but the 2 dealers within 100 miles of me will not make any kind of service appointment, will not give you any kind of estimated time of completion of service and all inquiries are met with the standard " we'll call when it's ready. Reminds me of my ex wife.......dang, now I am mad again.
