For those of you in the Washington state, where did you get your maintenance plan and how much was it?
Got ours through dealer (Porsche Bellingham), had 40k maintenance on our base, and squeezed 2 years out of them when we got the S.

If you call your dealer service they can give you an estimate. Since at 3 year/30k miles they change spark plugs in addition to all the other service items required at that point; e.g., oil change, brake fluid flush, etc, I'm just guessing around $800.00 but again that is just a guess.

still looking for typical pricing for the 30K service hahaha
This is my 30,000 receipt, from Sept. 2019. Note that the car was one month shy of two years since its delivery, so a brake flush was included, in addition to the normal 30,000 work.

I'd say that my sole local dealer has typical prices for its work, but that's just an educated guess.

My 2017 S has about 36k miles on the odometer and I'm planning for its 40K mile maintenance. Would someone please enlighten me on what the maintenance involves and how much I should expect to pay? I live on the mid-Atlantic coast.

Has this already been answered online somewhere? Thanks.

Just thought I would share and wanted to see how this compared to others?

2018 Macan Base - 30,000 Miles

$240.53 for Oil Change & and Yearly Service ( 125 Labor / 115.53 Parts )
$215.00 for Yearly Service ( 215.00 Labor / 4.69 Parts )
$452.10 for Spark Plugs ( 322.50 Labor / 129.60 Parts )

$907.63 Total
I had a 10% discount so I ended up paying $882.48 after taxes ect.

They said I could have waited on the Spark plugs IF I wanted, but he said the 40,000 mile Service is the most expensive one and that if I did this now it would help offset the next service. He left it up to me and I decided to do it now rather than next year.

$215.00 for Yearly Service ( 215.00 Labor / 4.69 Parts ) <-- what does this include?

The rest looks fine for dealer service.

I cannot compare as I bought the prepaid maintenance plan though it seems inline with what dealers charge. I prepaid $3500 for all maintenance up to 50k.

Now we wait for the posts on how some are DIYers, or use an Indy or make skip certain steps... nothing wrong with any of it but I look forward to the usual replies. LOL.

Plus, since I’m close to 48k, my last service is coming up... I will be looking at an Indy for future service.

The oil change should already include a comprehensive inspection. Now is the cleaning worth $215?

This is close to the numbers my dealer gave me when I inquired, before I bought my Macan.

My local SA knows me real well. He's been my SA through two Caymans and helps with my VW. Every 10k miles, expect to spend a couple hundred at a minimum. (Five hundred is way too much) The 40k is the "big one", and he told me around 1200 pending what needed to be done.

He did add one thing when I asked about preventative xfer case steps. He said before doing an all out xfer case replacement (around 4k) for one customer that started with the symptoms, they changed the xfer case fluid to see if that helped. So far that resolved the problem.

So for a few hundred with some customers who were out of warranty or CPO, they are doing the same. He hasn't seen any come back needing replacement. He wouldn't declare it was a remedy or a sure fire prevention, but so far it seems to help with that issue. He still sees it more with the Cayennes.

My dealer might be less expensive than the average, I dunno. Standard service/oil change on my previous Porsches always seemed to run 100 or 150 less than what I read from others elsewhere. Never more than 3-400. One poor guy on another board was hit with some astronomically stupid price, like 800 or something.

Holy Crap. I just spoke to my local dealer for the cost of a 4 yr service visit. MY 2015 Turbo with 19k miles (I bought it CPO and have purchased an extended 3rd party warranty through the dealership).

The estimate for oil & filter change, air filter, inspection, transmission fluid was $1,952. My last service at 3 yr was $900 and I was able to digest it reluctantly but almost $2k seems like complete BS. I just ordered the Mann air filter from Amazon so that will save me $150 so my total goes down to $1,800. The service advisor said that it takes 5 hours for the transmission service and the fluid alone costs $250.

My issue is that it is CPO until next year and I have the extended warranty through the dealer.

I am not a DIY person regarding the other service requirements.

What is reasonable for this service?
Any suggestions what I should do?

Sounds cheap. This person was charged $3007 There will be others found probably from a couple of years ago less than $2K. Adjust for inflation. 4 yr/40K is a Major service for a Porsche. Be glad you don't need a new battery too.

Yeah, those 4 cylinder Macan's are really expensive on plug changes 'cause you don't get the volume discount. And the plugs are so hard to get at. 😉

This thread inspired me to make a call today. I was quoted $2400 for same 40K. Seems a bit egregious and more research is clearly in order. I may have them do the important stuff and take the chance that a DIY cabin air filter won't void my transfer case warranty.
