Just been quoted £544 by my local dealer to replace rear pads & discs on my 2016 V40 R Design, (advisory on MOT) !!!
That's on top of the basic service & MOT charge,which came to £335.

So basically if agreed to have them replaced and broke down the the pricing, it would have cost almost £900 for an oil & filter change, cabin filter, software check/updates, MOT (with the rear breaks being an advisory), and a quick wash & hoover.
And that would have been with a 10% discount on parts & labour for their Plus 4 Club, which offers discounts on cars over 4 years old.

They even charged £3.50 to top up the screen wash which I myself did yesterday !

On my way out I got chatting to the sales guy who sold me the car, he said Volvo's pricing, not just on servicing but on new cars in general is pushing customers away from owning a Volvo, especially long time loyal customers who have returned year after year.

This will definitely my last visit to this dealership for servicing.

Not a direct comparison, but front brakes/discs/fluid plus labour and v.a.t. on our V60 early December at a Volvo specialist was approx. £352 total.

Remembering its a Ford derived system any mechanic can do this, or competent diy'er, genuine Volvo items are 160 from the 1st ad on thebay and it's less than an hour on a ramp to replace. The next generation of owners will simply pay out a grand a month, and swap the car as often as the rental agreement allows
