Our 2020 Jimny has just been in for its second service at 2 years old (new in January 2020)

The first service after 12 months cost £199 which l thought was okay as they changed the gearbox/diff oils as well as the engine oil.

This time it's £270. This is obviously more than last time, is it about right? The vehicle has only done 7,500 miles.

Apparently the extra cost was due to it needing the brake fluid changing.

What are others paying for a main dealer service?

Mine goes in next week at 6,600 miles and £258. There is more to do at 24 months.

I know on the first service they change the diff oil. I know this because they were moaning because i have diff guards fitted. I thought the second service had less parts. I always have the pollen filter done due to living amongst the farmland of Lincolnshire and collecting a large amounts of bugs and assorted chaff.

lt looks like the charge to replace the brake fluid was £100. unless there were more checks to do than last year.
l suppose it depends on their hourly rate, l know my local Land Rover dealer charges £100+ VAT per hour.

Using my Sealey pressure bleeder l can change the brake fluid completely on my Defender in around 30 minutes.

Land Rover were changing £400 to service the Defender back in 2007, which is why they never saw it again once the warranty ran out. The local independent Land Rover specialist charged around £200 although l've done the service myself for the past ten years.

Sounds about right. Second service is meant to include valve clearance check and brake fluid replacement.

Mine has just had it's 3rd service which cost £270 including valve clearance which was pushed back from 2nd service. First service was £202, second was £309 which included fitting extended brake lines by no valve clearance check.

l suppose it depends on the mileage. There's no mention of a valve clearance check on the invoice, but it's only done 7,500 miles so it will probably get done next time.

First two are free here, but because of "delivery delays", we got an "upgrade", so first four are free - we did 8500 kms (just around 5000 miles) in the first year, the second service was done Thursday last.

For some reason I can't figure out, the service schedule here appears to be different to what you guys have - we service at 6 months or 5000 kms, which ever comes first, you seem to be doing it every 12 months.

Almost certainly. I was at 11000 miles for my 2nd and they advised waiting. Even at 17000 for my 3rd it was probably a bit too early!

Valve clearances are checked at 2 year or 25,000 mile intervals. The actual checking is reasonable but changing, it involves the removal of the camshaft and each defective cam follower, would be very time consuming. They wouldn't show it on the invoice as it is part of the service covered by labour. I have no idea, but I will check, what they do if the inspection reveals out of gauge clearances.

Adjusting the valve clearances certainly is fiddly but as Suzuki use the "penny washer" shims, on top of the valve bucket, only the individual camshaft caps have to be removed to fit the valve lift tool and not the whole cam which should make the job a little easier. Its the smaller shims which fit under the bucket, on top of the valve stems which are a pain and require cam removal with all the re-timing care it entails.

I have just rechecked the info. on the servicing manual and it refers to replacing the whole bucket tappet. There is no shim to be seen on the illustration.

Well, that's a surprise. I assumed that it was the same as the 1300 engine. Having to source and fit a whole, sized, cam bucket just to adjust a valve clearance sounds way too complicated. Possibly on a competition engine to remove any chance of a shim being displaced at insane rpm if air or hydraulic systems were not available perhaps, but not on a road car revving to 6500. Quite baffling !!
