New to the board, I'm just curious what would be needed on a car with 12k miles that would cost $1,500-2,000. Obviously a Maserati is going to cost more to service than a Chevy or Honda but I'm curious as to what is really being done. Quality of oil and other fluids (I'm used to using Motul fluids) will be more but what else is there increasing the price?
If I were to get one in a few years I'll probably do the basic services (oil, brakes, etc) myself. $400 to put oil in the car is just robbery.
For me this would be a year round daily driver so we are talking 15,000 miles/yr ($2,000 in oil changes alone if I were to go to a dealer). I'm starting my research now to see which cars/brands to consider for my next car.
