Dealer $1200

I don't know what the 105,000 includes on the Challenger but when you say fluids what fluids are we talking about? Does it include engine oil, transfer case, diffs, coolant and transmission oil? Air filter, oil filter and fuel filter.

Labour alone for tappet adjustment is 3 to 4 hours plus gasket kit.

Shouldn't really matter. Quote is for the 105,000klm service. Just another example of a dealer rip off.

Yep includes all oil & filters as per log book.
Must admit I was surprised at the difference, expected maybe $200.

I used this mechanic for a previous vehicle & thought he did good work,should have went back as soon as the Challengers warranty expired.

Youíre not getting valve clearance checked for that money.

Maybe, maybe not. It really depends on what fluids/filters etc are done on 2013 plate 105k service. The service schedule changed between models so its hard to know. If its just a basic engine oil/filter and valve clearance then its a good price and your not getting ripped off.
I reckon plenty of peeps coughing up $1200 are not actually getting a cover off valve clearance done anyway

One or two discreet pencil marks on rocker cover bolts will indicate if it was removed......just for peace of mind..

Default Service costs.

Finally got the bill for the service, $842 as labour was more then the computer model & rocker cover gasket not included in original guesstimate.
Even had a wash, dealer never did that.

Almost exactly what I paid recently for 105k service with valve clearance check. Private mechanic.

As an aside, this was the first physical clearance check since 30k. I asked them to note what was required in regard to adjustment. 2 slightly tight, the rest a bit loose. None out by much though the counter jockey couldnít quantify exactly as they donít actually measure the existing clearance. Either the correct feeler gauge fits or it doesnít and is adjusted accordingly. Saves time.
Engine is noticeably quieter though now.
