  • first service..

    Now im never really one to read manuals so i should probably check that but i was just wondering, when is first service ?

    The car has done nearly 2500miles (had it 2 months, maybe just over)

    Do all the oils and general fluids need changing already ?


    Please help a V8 noob


    cheers

      1st service is 10k.

      Mine has now done 4k. Finally getting my new exhaust fitted on Wednesday, decided to book it in for an "additional" service at this point too, oil change etc.

          That's weird; I got told it was every 20,000 miles when I bought mine?

              Def 10k interval, that said I have just had mine done at 4k. Probably worth at least having an oil change at that, but when monkfish will do you a service at £136 its worth doing early.

                Oh to live closer to monkfish...
                Might have to book some time off to get them to do a few things at once...

                  Most Vauxhalls are, so that's what the dealers quote without thinking.

                  The thing is, we ain't got Vauxhalls, just the badges. Ours will have the oil dropped once it's run in, and then at it's yearly service, as I can't see us doing 10k per year.

                  You could always read the manual.

                        Well I was told servicing every 20,000 miles so expected to service it once a year.

                          Not what your book says. Ignore it, and you'll invalidate your warranty - whatever you were told.

                            Didn't get to read the manual before I bought the car, assumed the dealership would have told me correctly.

                            Won't ignore it as it's not worth it, slightly annoying spending £23,000 and being told the wrong information though - oh and I'm still awaiting my touch up paint from said dealership.

                              That's weird. I was told "Thank-you, I'll give you a call next week, just to make sure everything's okay" Three weeks later.......
