Just purchased my mark x not too long ago... was reading online and realise that mark x beside standard oil change need to change rear axle oil... asked ex owner and he say he nv do that before. he also told me that his spark plug not changed since day 1 as can last 100k. Current milage is 115k. No wonder the car is very sluggish... now i thinking he prolly skip many other required maintenance for mark x...
Was wondering any fellow X owner here can enlighten me and the estimation for the cost so that wont kana chop carrot.
TS, I hope you would have gotten all the basic maintenance stuff done on your X by now. You should have changed 3 oils (engine, gearbox, axle $150-$200+ depending on type of engine oil), changed plugs (costs $200+), decarbonising ($150+), changed oil/air/aircon filters. No timing belt to worry about though.
Check condition of brake rotor/pads, shock absorbers, suspension arms and bushes, rear axle bushes, engine/gearbox mounts and wheel bearings. Then do a 4-wheel alignment.
Your 1st comprehensive service should set you back about $700-$1000.
Don't know what you mean by the car being very sluggish, cos it shouldn't be, with 212bhp and 260Nm of torque.
If you need more advice post here or PM me. I know the Mark X quite well, having owned one before.
