Cost of a 75,000 mile check?


Recommended Posts

I bought the car just under 75,000 and now am at about 75,900 and haven't done the check yet. About whats the average costs for one of those? I know the costs are going to vary based on what needs done. But just an average would be helpful.

B, depending on what might have or what wasnt done at the 60k interval here are the items they will look at and replace:

1. Spark Plugs and possibly spark plug tubes dependent on your model year Do them yourself...save allot on labor

2. Drive belt Do this yourself save allot on labor

3. Fuel filter Messy and is best done with a lift but doable with jack stands or good ramps....allot of labor as well here

4. Brake fluid Every 2 to 3 years is best another dealer service...if you have the bleeder you can do it at home

5. Coolant was it done recently? Best done at the dealer unless you have the tool to do the pressure check but can be done at home

6. Oil and filter Do this yourself.....ramp or jack stands save allot on labor

7. Air filter Do this yourself

8. Cabin Filter Do this yourself

9. The dealer will check your brakes all around...rotors, pads, and sensors...this one could get pricey if you cant do them yourself.

10. Check the cabin drains for debris VERY VERY important...do this yourself.

11. Check the battery do a load test...buy a good but not expensive tester and load test the battery

12. Clean out the front radiators for debris...you'd be surprised what gets clogged in there...the front nose has to come off to do this

13. Windsheild wipers Do this yourself

14. Manual trans fluid 90k Tiptronics now if you have one

15. All hoses...coolant...A/C etc

16. Have them inspect the water pump for 'weeping'

17. Have them look at the cam cover for drips around the bolt holes/flanges and also the oil sump pan.

18. Have the top gone over to see that it working properly...a good cleaning and top treatment goes along way to keeping it in tip top shape.

And the normal 'stuff' light bulbs....they will go over the suspension....steering rack....horn....

Thats a long list but it's a big milestone at 60k...since you are at 76k now would be a good time to have it looked over

Total for all of this stuff could set you back in excess of 3k if they do it all...do allot yourself....have the dealer give you a list and estimate before they do any work

Ask questions here there are number of great members who can help

Good luck

Check here for Porsche recommended maintenance:


Pick the Model Year (MY) range for your car.

+1 on mcmike27's take on the situation especially if you don't have any record of prior service. I would suggest following the aboue list of items due to the fact that there are some subtle differences in the cars and the maintenance service needed.

You might also look at your tires and check the date they were manufactured. In general (and specifically by Porsche) six years is becoming the safe age limit for tires....not due to tread wear but the material deterioration of the tire.

If you don't have an Owner's Manual, I would suggest purchasing one. The MSRP is about $35.00 and worth every dollar. Likewise, if you are planning to work on your car, a Bentley's manual - available from Amazon through a RennTech link - is also a very worthy purchase.

I got the manual I was just curious on costs. It had its last service around 72,00 and also had the one at the 60,000 interval but it doesn't detail what all was done on the carfax.

+1 on MCmike27's post.

If you have a record of maintenance at 60K like you stated it was on record, then hopefully it was the full 60K service.

I have never called a dealership and asked for any info but I don't see why they would have a problem telling you what was done

at 60K.
