    Typical Maintence Costs

    Hi, I'm considering an 06 C2 S coupe Six speed. This would be my 1st Porsche and was wondering what "typical" maintence items like oil changes etc. would cost at the dealer. Thanks!!!

    Re: Typical Maintence Costs

    About $200 for an oil change annually and ~$1200 for new rear tires every 8 - 12,000 miles. Fronts usually wear at a rate of 50% to the rears. You'll need a quart of synthetic to top up your oil once in a while too but that's negligible.

    Re: Typical Maintence Costs

    Welcome to Rennteam. I live in Canada and I can only tell you the costs over here at my dealership. A typical oil change will run around $250 CAD and the first somewhat major maintenance appt at 30,000 km was around $1,000 CAD. It's by no means cheap to maintain a Porsche. Is it worth it? For me it is because of the enjoyment I get when driving my car. Plus oil changes are recommended around once/year or 20,000 km I believe so it's not too bad.

    Re: Typical Maintence Costs

    If you want to save a couple bucks and change your own oil and filter (I like to do it every 7,500 mi) the oil pan drain plug and oil filter are reasonably accessable. I drive up on 2X12s and slide under the rear, reach up and there it all is. Figure 9qts of Mobil 1 from Wally-World at $5 per and $15-20 for oil filter, crush washer and "O" ring on line and about 45 minutes including clean up and you've saved yourself about $200 if not more. My dealer is looking for $300-325 for a simple oil change.

    Re: Typical Maintence Costs

    Annual oil service - $200 - $300
    20K/2yr service - $500 - $800

    Re: Typical Maintence Costs

    Kind of an old thread here, but looking for some advise.  I've got an '06 C4S and the dealer in New Orleans is closed - they gave the franchise back to Porsche.  So I scheduled a major srvc due to age of car - 4yrs(not miles - only 19000) at the next closet dealer 1.5hrs away at the same time we were to be next door picking up a new BMW.  The dealer said they would call w/ an estimate before they did anything.  I told them specifically not to do the oil change as they were going to chrg 350.00 for that alone and I told them I could get that done for much less or do it myself.  Needless to say they did not call w/ an estimate for anything and did the oil change for 350 and on top of that they said the car did not need any of the work the manual suggests for a major as I only had 19,000 miles.

    So, is this a little steep for an oil change AND whose right, the manual or the shop re: no major needed?  The manual specifically states that certain work is to be done by miles OR time???

    Tks for the input - hate to get screwed if something does go wrong.
