I did a quick math, and here it is:
Year 1: 960.40
Year 2: 1323.60
Year 3: 1128.55
Year 4: 1714.45
The first year there is the two first services which are free, so this is why it's less expensive. I usually do about 40 000 kms per year, but in fuel, I'll save approx. 12 000$ in gaz in 4 years, so I'm doing a good deal with the CT anyway! But geeze the service is exensive! Premium service, premium price hehe!!
I have even heard of Prius owners going up to 150K miles before needing their first brake job!Maintenance cost will be lower than any other Lexus out there. An oil change isn't needed till every 10,000 miles. The 5,000 mile service does not include an oil change, just rotate tires and check this and that. The regenerative brake system will save on the brake pads and will last longer than a conventional car. Prius drivers have had their cars for more than 80,000 + miles and have not changed their pads. The best think is to look at the maintenance schedule that came with manual and booklets. That will be the best judge. Just use the Prius as a good estimate to what things will cost since much of the car is a Prius system.
when i went to my lexus dealership all they had was some costco cookies..But does the Toyota dealer offer free sugar coated donut holes, biscotti, chocolate chip cookies, saltwater taffy plus an assortment of complimentary beverages?
What do you mean the Toyota dealer doesn’t provide free biscotti? Gasp!
I took my prior Lexus ES to Toyota for all maintenance and received great service. Since CT is based on Prius engine, I'm planning on doing the same with my new CT.Is anyone going to do this? Take their ct to a toyota dealership because it is cheaper? I was thinking after the free 10k service is over I will likely head to Toyota to get everything done there.
What do you guys think?
