    Default Would You Pay For Vauxhall To Service You Car

    Need some advise....

    Purchased my car in August of this year...i at the time opted for the 3yr service programme..costing me £18-70 a month...fixed for 3yrs...i have made 1 payment and anothers due soon and sat here constantly asking WHY....

    Its out of warrenty in march next year and most of what goes wrong has been replaced under warrenty...

    Just saying you can do the service yourself...oil/filter check round in-between and use the very good independant i know...

    What would you guys/gals do...stick with the main dealer and paying every month or stop it?

    I've never bought such a policy, unless it pays for any subsequent reported parts / repairs
    The service only costs about £200 and is typically only required every two years / 20K miles
    Equally, once out of warranty you can do it yourself (if you so wish)

    Check the policy, it may only allow one service every 20K miles which may be two services in those three years
    However if it is one service per year / 10K miles, then that is fairly good value for money but ironically works out at about the same cost

    That works out at £224 a year just to change your oil and a couple of filter,s
    Stop it i would say for the price of two of your payments you do it yourself
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it

    I'm booking mine in to my local Vauxhall dealer at the end of the month for a service and to sort out the auto headlight leveling. Reasons for booking it in to the dealer is
    1. I am wanting to keep the service history up.
    2. Being a 3.2 i don't trust myself.

    Nope not after the mrs bought a corsa C on a Y reg this year 94000 miles full dealer service history .. went to change the fuel filter that looked like it had never been changed in its life and was proved correct.

    took it to 3 garages all said " It aint coming out unless you break the fuel line" £30 for fuel line and filter replacement considering the book full of stamps not exacly what you would expect.

    Additionaly the pollen filter fell appart in my hands and the air filter i would guess was newer but probably a year or 2 old.
