I actually never said I didn't keep receipts,I just said they are required.
And yes,1200 dollars is what the dealership charges for the service,plus I cannot go anywhere else.
I spoke with the dealership and they told me the powertrain warranty is in effect,but then I read the warranty info posted on Kia's website,so now I really don't know.
Using the link provided earlier to an estimator, finding a zip code for Cherry Hill, NJ, (as this was a place mentioned), I plugged in the numbers for my Kia and the 60,000 mile service came out to $238-349. Where are you getting this $1200 from?

Oh and just for giggles, I also plugged that same information in using my old zip code in Miami and the cost came out to $211-314 so while Cherry Hill, NJ may be a little more expensive than Miami, it is not FOUR TIMES as expensive.

You might be going by the numbers on that site... but you don't know anything about Cherry Hill, NJ. You can generally expect everything to be 3 times as expensive (income included) as Miami.

No,I didn't think they covered that.
The 60,000 is the one where they change the timing belt/service the car. It ran me $300 range....

I always hear about timing belt changes that are only a few hundred dollars, but like the OP, I have never encountered one at that rate. That service must be indexed by area, since even the independent mechanics are only about 30% less expensive than the dealerships, at least those with whom I have dealt, but I tend to shop for quality work, which is not always at the lowest price.

I know someone with a Sportage who was quoted a bit more than $1200 for the 60k service, in Northern Virginia, and had Kia complete the service because they were afraid of warranty repercussions as they intend to keep the vehicle to the 100k mark. From what I recall, on certain Kias, that price is not too far out of line as to what the dealerships charge, at least those with which I am familiar. I called around when my friend got that quote, and one of them itemized the expenses, and the timing belt alone was over $500.

Last one I had done, including the tow, was $265.
That was in Ojai (Ventura County) Ca.
Not exactly a low priced area.

Including the water pump? Wow. I think that I am including elements of timing belt service like the tensioner and water pump, not to mention fairly expensive labor rates, and that's why any timing belts I have had done, or that I know of in the family, were much more expensive.

No. specifically NOT including the water pump as it's rarely needed.
Nor the other bits and bobs.

Do you always move the goal posts like this? Tsk.

otoh... if/when the water pump needs to be replaced?
yeah, lay out the extra $$ for the timing belt (and the serpentine too).

hth

Oy Vey...it's not all that hard to get around that provision. They can't "require" you to use only "their" parts. However, they can require you to use parts that meet very specific guidelines. For instance they can require that you only use a 5W20 semi-synthetic. They can require you to use filters that filter down to a certain micron level or use a particular kind of medium. This is not illegal. Also, they all have these guidelines and recommendations, but Hyundai is the one with a zeal for using this as leverage on warranty claims.
