Af­ter hear­ing hor­ror sto­ries from my me­chanic about ser­vice costs on Euro­pean cars, I want Cars­guide to run some ar­ti­cles on ser­vice costs. I no­tice the Head-to-Head ar­ti­cle with Golf against Lancer makes some men­tion of costs but prospec­tive buy­ers need to know more. Or are me­chan­ics try­ing to re­tain our busi­ness since ser­vices on new cars are usu­ally done at deal­er­ships?

Geoff Grubb, email

We’re putting more ser­vice de­tail into Cars­guide but ac­tual costs can vary widely, un­less you have one of the new deals – Toy­ota was first, now Nis­san and Mit­subishi – with capped­priced ser­vice costs through the life of a new-car war­ranty.
