I checked out service costs before I bought it. Here's the writeup from previously:

They couldn't really explain why apart from the fact that they included a valet and a MoT in the third year. It's not as if it's a "posh" garage at all - edge of town on a small site with "old" buildings...
So with their agreement I've taken out a monthly service deal direct with Suzuki, who were significantly cheaper even if not the cheapest. It also means that I can switch garages if I either fall out with them or move away.
Here are the figures:
1ST YEAR SERVICE _97 118 125 181 191 191
2ND YEAR SERVICE 216 266 294 346 356 364
3RD YEAR SERVICE 120 143 150 206 216 216
cost over _3_ years 433 527 569 733 763 771
SERVICE PLAN at "my garage" - Garage F:
cost per month - 21.33
cost over 3 years - 767.88
Initial payment - 46.71
32 monthly payments - 18.01
Total - 623.03
When I booked it in for the year 1 service they hadn't realised I had a service plan, but fortunately I'd left all the documents in the car and it was done without issue.
