Service

Post by nelson1.r@bigpond »

First timer here! I pick up my EQA 250 in a few days. They want to sell me what I think is an expensive fixed price 5 year service deal. (dearer than my petrol VW Tiguan was). Any advice on service companies other than Mercedes? I live in Perth, south of the river. Most service garages tell me they don't yet have a qualified person!

My work (Autospark Rockingham) does servicing and are qualified to do EVs. If Rockingham is too far away the other Autosparks that are dotted around are also being trained up in EVs but I don't know which ones have had the training yet (or do servicing in general).

Alternatively RAC are putting some of their techs through an EV training course so they also should be able to do it (though I wasn't overwhelmed with confidence in that particular course....)

I had a look at the service schedule and there are 2 different services which should alternate each year or 50k. Both are pretty minor.
