  • First Service help!

    I've been quoted £170-£230 for mys first service from all 7 of my local dealers. This is far to dear right? How do you guys get it cheaper? Also anyone local know where to go?

      My Stealer quoted £182 - Got mine done at MPG for £80 - long way from Essex though!

      Shop around at Non Vauxhall and see what you can find - 1st Service is basically oil and filter ('O' ring) change.

          Don't I need to get it serviced by vauxhall to keep the warranty intact though?

                    You are allowed to go to a none franchise garage to be serviced, as long as they use genuine parts, you still get the book stamped too, far cheaper, phone around for a few quotes.

                      Hi, As Miniman says any VAT registered garage, as long as they use genuine parts & list all service details. Your local VX dealer may not be quite as helpful though if you do get a warranty prob. My 1st service with VX was £123.

                          If it was for the same service then that goes to prove dealers can set thier own prices, argue the cost or go elseware.

                          Or at least go back and quote this thread.
