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!!!!!!!!!!

FURY CONSUMER ALERT!

Maroone's experience in this case should serve as an example to all the Fury owners. Changing the oil and filter on the Fury is SO QUICK and SO SIMPLE, that I guarentee you'll spend more time driving down and picking up the oil and filter than you will changing them. If you order a couple of spare filters (or even the oil) from the Internet, you can save even more time and money. Believe me guys, a ten-year old kid could competently change the oil on a Fury.

Cheers

Ouch. I am all for doing my own maintenance on all my vehicles but when the price is right, might as well get someone else do it. Sucks to get burnt like that though.

I am with some of the other guys, always a good idea to shop around and be crystal clear on the charges.

Now adays, it pays to have everything out in the open. If the price is too good to be true, have them write it on paper. Weither its for your bike, your car, or your home ... get it in writing. And make sure it covers EVERYTHING from labor to parts to used parts dissposal.

I think with the added pressure of the internet and shoppers being sauvy those who are providing customer service are looking for places to pad service bills.

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.

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..

My dealers the 3 are in really hard to get to spots! TRAFFIC WISE!
