Jeebus, I've already gotten used to $400+ oil changes, but the Porsche dealer just tried to charge me over $1,700 for:
Brake Fluid Flush
Cabin Air Filter
Now, the detail job was $200 and like I said I know the oil changes used to be around $400, so the service guy tried to say that the rest of the cost was from flushing the brake fluid. Which works out to 2 hours labor and $1,1000 total for that job.
Anyway, luckily I remembered that I had signed a written estimate for $1,200 when I dropped the car off. The service guy had to clack away on his computer for a few minutes to get the price down and then claimed it was because they recently raised their hourly rates and the system was "in between somehow" when I signed the estimate. As if the $1,700 was the right price and I was now getting a good deal.
I guess it's warranty work only at the local Porsche dealership from now on.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that the "detail" job included waxing the car. Well when I went to pick the car up it looked like all they did was give it a good wash and then spray it with SpeedShine. They had to keep the car a second day for this work and claimed the detail job took all day yesterday. Well, the paint felt like shit and you could still see all of the little minor scratches that were in the clear coat when I dropped it off. So I had to leave the car with them for another day, making this whole thing a 3 day process.
Last item: No loaner car. Apparently they've just decided to completely not do that anymore, but they lie to every customer and tell them that they just don't have any cars available "today."
