Just had the 105,000km 7 year service. $2154 all up including normal service + new cam belt, new water pump and coolant flush (all recommended on this forum). Labour costed at $140/hr - the most expensive service I have ever experienced (although not quite as bad as the once every five year's £20-30,000 cost of servicing a Porsche Carrera GT - see Harry's Garage)
This is the last year of the 4yr extended warranty that cost $3000 - claims so far have been a new wheel sensor and two new shocks that come to around $1500 but IMHO still worth it as any single large repair could cost more than the premium.
The question now is whether to keep the Tig and be prepared to pay for some expensive repairs or to sell for $15k and buy a petrol version. I love the consumption of the diesel Tig but no more diesel versions are to be imported. Would be happy to go electric but no EV Tigs on the horizon.
Tried a RAV hybrid but felt really tinny and plasticy although with great consumption of 4.7litres/100km. Touareg too pricey - Subaru not convinced - any preferences?
All thoughts appreciated
