First scheduled maintenance completed on one car.
Transmission service - fluid change $118.00 plus tax at the dealer.
In my garage - $12.88 for the real McCoy Mitsu fluid. Took 1/2 hour including pics and a PDF for the records (just in case).
Super easy for anyone who can turn a wrench IMO. Didn't need a lift - easy to reach.
So $118.00 + $8.26 (tax) = $126.26 at the dealer
at 1/2 hour for the job (including documentation) that’s a savings of $113.38 or 226.76 per hour. But wait, I didn’t have to make money that I don’t spend so . . . no income tax either! So $314.94 per hour before income taxes.
The down side is that I had to wash my hands three times.
The up side is that the other car gets the same service next weekend
it takes longer to drive to and from the dealer than to do the service myself. Not to mention the hour waiting there!
