    Default Evans Halshaw Service

    Hi just posting this as my car has a major service tomorrow morning and I've spoke to Evans Halshaw to find out what actually gets done on a full service, however they didn't really say anything apart from 'what needs to be done'.
    Im wondering what actually gets done apart from the obvious things like oil change, oil filter, pollen filter, ect...
    But I don't just want an oil change I want it flushing firstly with engine flush, new oil, new filters, gearbox oil, brake fluid... Everything basically.
    Anyone have a list for whats done ? Because I've searched and cannot find one on vauxhall or anywhere ?
    Thanks guys.

    They should of said on the phone of everything what get's done, hence why you confirm to accepting that appointment for your vehicle, and also the price you are going to pay.

    The same goes for when they ask what extras you would like (i.e Brake fluid change, air con re charge ect ect)

    As above,

    Brake fluid (dealer should check first if it is required), gearbox oil are all extras and will be on top on the main service costs

    Ok, but is there anyway I can confirm tomorrow what gets done and extra's I want ? Because this wasn't mentioned on the phone either. I said I wanted everything doing. But they kind of just changed the conversation and surely me asking on the phone what gets done is enough for them to claffify what gets done, I asked this before the booking was confirmed so surely this is down to Vauxhall to inform me ? Which didn't happen ?

    Only way to confirm, is to speak to the dealer

    Is it a full manufacturer spec service?

    Normally oil changed and new oil, air & pollen filters. Key fob battery(ies) changed, washer fluid added and topped up, antifreeze content tested and topped up if required.

    Spark plugs, brake fluid, transmission oil etc are all extras

    Yes full manufacturer service.
    Is it worth getting all the extras ? What extra costs are the talking does anyone have a rough idea ?
    How often should the gearbox oil be changed ?
