    For $151 that is all you got was an oil change. I dont think all the dealers are doing the whole service. I love that people pay $15000 for a commander and then complain about maintenance.

    Well lets see I paid over $40,000 for my pickup and its first service was less than $100 What I think is happening out there to make the price different from dealer to dealer is that some dealer appreciate their customers more than others. The 10 hour maintenance is not only to make sure that you get any left over particles from the manufacturing but also to make sure that the factory and dealer who assembled the machine did their job correctly. If that was not true then there would be no reason to check clearances and look at things like the belts it would be a fluid change only like my pickup was. I really like my dealer and when people talk to me about my machine I tell them about my experiences with my dealer. Several of my friends have now done business with them because of this, each of us willing to drive 30 extra miles or more to do so when there is one dealer that is within 8 miles of my house. Can you guess which dealer is selling more BRP products?

    I also believe that some dealers are over charging hourly for their servicemen to "learn the Commander on the owner's dime "....was that possible in your case ya think?

    Where did you have your service done or did you do it yourself? Yes i think there was a learning curve for the technicians but the fact of the matter is that if you do everything that BRP ask you to do in the 10hr service it takes time. This time with todays labor rates gets expensive unfortunately. I am all for customers doing there own work but remember that when there is a warranty issue it becomes that much harder to deal with Can-Am when the dealers have no paper trail to show. There have been several customers that had us torque the heads and adjust the valves but did the rest themselves and that was an option that saved them some money. I dont know if all dealers are willing to do this though.

    Did the 10 hr myself... it took me a full day and was everything except the oil and filter change .... there is a lot of labor time involved with it....honestly I wasted some time just gauking at it....like wondering why BRP put the throttle body inside that big black tube ...ROTFL!

    Well LBR a whole day? The way things work around my house it would be three days minimum. The first day would be looking at the machine trying to make sure that I know where everything is located and how to get to it. When the neighbors would stop by to see if they could help me. Not with the machine but to drink my beer. The next day would mostly be tracking down which neighbor or relative has my tools that I need to use. Get a little work done and the third day taking it to my dealer and Paying them because it don't have time to get it done before the next big ride

    But the beer was good and cold

    Dealer is charging me 199.00 for the service. I want valve adjustment,head torque ect on file for warranty purposes. Service guy said I can hang out while its being done as I might learn something. Ill take him up on that. Had to take half the interior out to install the doors so the schooling has already started....

    That is worth the money to hang out and watch... I'm assuming that may just be the labor only?.... and if it includes all fluids with filter, cool.... you got a steal of a price either way, then no maintenance intimidation for ya in the future.
