Service savings on your doorstep - How much we saved
Average savings were less extreme, but if you don't give it a go you'll never know how far over the odds you're paying.
The average savings were £32 on the Mazda, £40 on the Citroen, £56 on the Ford and £64 on the Skoda.
Almost every franchised dealer struggled to be competitive with even the most expensive independents, although there was one anomaly in our results. The second-cheapest price for the service on the Mazda 6 came from a franchised dealership (in Battens Drive, Redditch).
The quotes varied within the franchised and independent networks, too. For instance, prices differed within the Skoda network by almost £90, so it's well worth phoning three or four garages.
