    Default Vecta 07 1.8 - service questions!

    Hi

    I have a 07 Vectra 1.8 petrol. Bought it at 23,000 miles. It is now at 47,000.

    1. I think i am correct in saying that i should have done a full service at around 40,000 miles (cam, pump etc) is this correct?

    2. Never owned a car so new before. My car i believe was registered in May 07, which means it is due its first MOT next month as it is now 3 years old. Do i get a reminder about the MOT being due or is it just a case of getting it done?

    3. What sort of price is a full service. Was quoted £280 from my nearby Vauxhall garage. Does that seem about right?

    Many thanks for any advise given

    Matt

    Cambelts on a 07 1.8 are 100k or tens years if you want the official line, wouldnt leave it that long myself but they do last alot better than the pre 06 models and pump isnt driven off the cam belt on xer engine cars.
