Depends on the service being done, different things are done at different intervals.

What is due though? What age/mileage?

Sites like clickmechanic.com and whatsmyservicecost.co.uk give an idea as to service costs.

As i said above, also if you get your service done at one of the participating dealers you get a years breakdown cover, this is a full relay type cover not just the basic.

Yes, as discussed on other threads this is well worth having and needs to be taken into account when comparing costs.

All depends where you live too, is that at a dealer? My low price is at a family run Ford business the high price is at a big franchised Ford dealer, the family busness gives me a time slot the franchise want the car all day, both give the breakdown cover.

Breakdown from what?  do you mean whilst taking the car in or bringing it back? I have break down cover with my car insurance so why pay another£18 ?

You get a years breakdown from Ford when it's serviced by a dealer. But if you've already got breakdown then fair enough. 👍

My local Ford garage charges less money than the village independent for a service.  The last one was around £160.  Breakdown coverage included too.  This is for a Focus though.
