a16 service

Was wondering how much you guys paid for a16 service. I was quoted for $293.04 ouch. Kinda steep for oil change, tire rotation and rear diff oil change IMO. O i forgot to mention I asked for a loaner also. I'm thinking the cost of the loaner was the bulk of it LOL. I have an appt tomorrow at 11am. I have to admit Acura of Concord sevice dept. has really great customer service. Takes away the pain or at least part of the pain of dishing out all that cash.

That price is probably normal for a dealership. Sounds expensive. Labor is the bulk of it, but from what I hear they charge a bundle on the rear diff change. Maybe $90. Save the money and DIY or go somewhere else. I remember Sinecure saying he had a shopped he used for Honda/Acuras in SF, but I forgot the name.

Did you mean a B16 service?

If so, I had mine done at 10,654 miles and it cost me around $150.00

It's got to be B

I paid 107, but just for oil change and diff. A major tire chain rotates tires for free, so I take mine there.
True, I miss all the inspections, but I'll take that risk.

Hah! ya think $293.04 is alot of $$?
Here's what the dealer spent on my X to certify it:..($2221)
$220...cert inspection
$891..new tires & install
$461...new front/rear brakes, front rotor resurface
$140...cabin & engine filter installed
$328...rear diff fluid service
$62.....front diff fluid service
$69...oil change
$50...zmax micro lubricant treatment

Yes, you'd save money if get the tire rotated for free from other tire dealers just like one member posted. American Tires even fix flats for free. For a lifetime balance and tire rotation, WalMart offers it for, I think, less than $75.

Front Diff. ? The last car I had with front diff. was not an awd vehicle but 4wd vehicle.

I think you mean the transfer case, which I believe is included in the transmission service.

My A16 service just popped up also. With my oil life at 15%. I called my local dealer and was quoted $170 with tax I think.

I guess that isn't too bad of a price then since most shops charge close to $100 for fluid changes.
