Just booked my Kona in for its first service. I asked how much it would be, the dealer said they would get back to me. They did say being on the Isle of Man it would most likely be more expensive than that provided by a UK Dealer (they didn't explain why). It will be interesting to see how much they wish to charge.

What did others pay for their first service?

They need to spend time polishing the special "M"s on your number plates vs us over on the Big Isle

Mine is due first week in September, but I'm Edinburgh. However, this lot might also by worth a look for you in IoM - secret-service. I have requested a quote for the Kona and it came in at £39.85 at the official Hyundai dealer nearby. Using the Hyundai site (service) to book the same dealer came in at £70.20.

My last car was due a big, expensive service the week before the lease company were due to uplift it and deliver the Kona. I needed to have it done for the contract and would have paid a significant penalty if returned without up to date service and valid MOT, but not too keen on paying £400+ for a car I was handing over in less than 10 days from the due date. Someone told me about this lot, so I checked - the same (official) dealer that quoted me £400+ came in at just under £200 for service and MOT! Only slight problem is that you get unused slots, so I had to have it to them (across the other side of town) at 8.30am the next day. They are the only Mitsubishi dealer available in Edinburgh and had carried out all previous services, so no issue at all. I got exactly the same level of customer service as previous, exactly the same official service as had I booked without going through this lot, but all at half price.

The quote I received for the Kona is with the official dealer and is a very short bus ride from me, so an added bonus.

It's worth checking the Hyundai website to see how much they think it would be. I booked my first service through the Hyundai website, £59.40.

Note that if you do book through the website you won't necessarily get the time or date you book: the dealer rang me back a few minutes later to say they didn't have the time slot the website had offered me but we arranged a different time. The price though is fixed by the online booking so you might as well see what it offers.

I'm leasing my Ioniq 38kwh with full maintenance, so I didn't pay, but it was about £60 on the first service that's just been done.

Hyundai actually sent me a quote for a plan for the next 3 years (despite being on full maint). Very bizarre charging. Year 2 is £151.95, year 3 is £63.02 and year 4 £519.90!

I have no idea what thy are doing on year four, but on the schedule it doesn't look any different to the other years - most of the items are just 'check/inspect'...anyone had that for their Kona?

Year 4 is the big one, batteries have to removed and balanced.

At 4 years they replace the coolant

FWIW the schedule for a 2021 Australian Kona is inspect (not replace) the coolant every 4 years/60,000km. My model has the blue coolant.

No mention of removing the battery to balance cells. It is my understanding that an occasional charge to 100% balances the cells in situ anyway so, like the brake fluid replacement in another thread, I suspect the dealer is dealing a shonky.

I can only tell you what the dealer said. He said they drop the battery down from under the car, check everything over and rebalance any cells that require it. I would expect the battery pack to be removed to check terminals and rebalance cells.
Your dealer had been taking illegal substances! Cell rebalancing is done insitu. My battery pack will be coming out for replacement but thats a separate issue.
Time to change your dealer.

To be fair I knew far more about the Kona than the dealer as it was all new to them. When it was at the dealer some clown registered the blue link to the dealer email before it was sold to me. The service guys hadn't a clue how to deregister it to enable me to register. They'd never had that issue before so they all traipsed out to see how it was done.
