Phoned my dealer today to book it, Arnold Clark Linwood, all sorted except they said its £175 for the 2nd service, but the 1st service I had done on my car was only £99 why the £76 difference in price.
secondly, what additional things are they meant to do in the second service that are carried out in the second service but not the first to justify the extra £76
also, see when a car turns 3years old, do they just disregard the 3rd service, 4th service, 5th service ****, because my dealer also does fixed price £99 major services, which they will only carry out to cars over 3 year old, and my mk3 astra gets 1 of these every 10K miles rather than the 6th service 6years/60K miles service as specifically stated in the service book or is there stuff a plain vauxhall dealer major service wont include that an actual 3rd service, 4th service etc. would specifically include depending on what car it was.
all this specific servicing, 2nd service, 3rd, etc. confuses me a bit as I've never had a car under 3year old before so I'm used to just saying "car needs a service," and they (any garage) looks at the price for a bog standard service and says, thats £79 etc. not "oh its 2years old, they are meant to get new remote batteries **** thats another 100quid"
lastly, is anyone else allowed to service my car other than a dealer but still keep the warranty and do many independent garages have a tech2/facilities to reset the service due light.
