I have been leasing my Jack (2000 3.5SE Petrol) and not seeing the servicing costs. I am buying it at end of lease at end of April, about to have 140,000 service paid for by leasing company. I am trying to budget - can anyone give an idea of holden service costs for jack? - Would average of $300 cover it? Is there a monster service looming at 160,000 I should be aware of - Timing chain etc?

There's a huge variance in costs.

A basic service like the 70,90,110 or 150000km seems to be around the $170 mark at my dealer just for the service. That is with no extras.

The dearest service I have seen on my Monterey so far was the 60000km at around $620 which was done while under lease. If I recall correctly, the 20000km and 40000km service were around the $300-$400 mark.

I believe the 100,000km and 160,000km can potentially crack the $1000 mark.

So going on that, you can guess that the 150000km service should be around $200 and then there will be the wallet burner 10000km later.

My 100000km is about a year away, so I'm saving up already.

PS ... make sure the timing belt is done on time. The Isuzu 3.5 V6 is an interference type engine which means valves and pistons will crash into each other if the belt snaps. The 3.2 in the older Jacks was non-interference and would suffer no internal damage if the belt broke.

I'd get your timing belt done prior to end of lease.
May as well have the taxman pay for a share of it

Hi, I own a 99 Se Jack, and to keep it simple, the go is with service's is that the real biggy comes up every 40,000 k's.
At every 40k they drop every fluid in the vehicle and replace it.
If it helps the most I have paid is around $750.00 for the 80k service and the cheapest about $220.00.
I think it is a fact of life owning a fourby that they are going to cost a lot more to run, but I reckon it's worth it.

My tactic, after being totally burnt off the dealer through deception, is to pick through the service schedule, do the staright forward stuff myself and get my reliable and trustworthy accredited mechanic (small businessman) to do the rest. He is happy and so am I.......on the issue of Holden and the aggrieved Jack owners appearing here over the months.....I reckon it must be that they never wanted the Isuzu product but had nothing else available in that market sector......talk about poor goodwill and promotion. Do they want a Paj, Patrol or LC ?
