  • Warrenty Vs 1st Service

    i got 2 years left on the warrenty of my 57 plate astra vxr , is the warrenty and service connected in anyway at all!!!

    got my 1st service soon in jan time want to go to my local garage rather than vaux bridgend as they treated my corsa c **** when it was in to have air mass sensor fitted and dont trust them as they also left my mates corsa c engine bay in hell of state, just wanting to know if i go to my local garage for the 1st service will it void my warrenty?!

      getting the service [email protected] vx is more for keeping value wehn it comes to sell you get to say 'FVSH' plus if its done @ the dealers its on the system therefore if anyhting was to happen then they wouldnt say you havnt servcied the car etc and askfor proof

          you dont need to go to a vaux garage to get your servcie done as mentioned but if you do decide to get it doen @ another garage make sure they are VAT registered an you keep proof of your service and parts in case

          plus you could always take it to another dealer

            As said by Bad Boy above^^ Block exemption means you are free to service anywhere (vat registered) as long as you used GM or OEM parts and they stick to the schedule of whats needed at what mileage etc

                  Best getting vx to do it as if there are any warrenty issues that you havent spotted you will find that the vx tech's will find it and you will get it done where as your local yokal wont know about these issues, like the vx techs will get updates to check for when cars come in.

                  Mobil 1 oil, go on the vxr part on the vx site it tells you there.

                          look for a guy called oilman on the site he will sort you out with the best for your car and at a better price than vx charge also does the filters as well

                              Im sure that was just one of the techs, if theres more than one at the local garage then you'll be fine, just ask for the head boy to do the work. I dont think a service warrents a test drive really!?
