    50k for sure, no more. Go and find a better service or... tell them to change it regardless. Although I would search for a better service.

    The AF 40 have "liftime oil" but driving under severe operating conditions it should be changed every 80000km (50000 miles). Most automatic transmission experts will say every 60000km. Opel/Vauxhall procedure is only drain and fill this will only change about 3 liters but the total of the system is about 7 liters.

    I changed oil on mine today, look at the picture on page 6 http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...t=74585&page=6. Will recomend you to read the hole thread.

    I was told if you dont have any problems with the gearbox then leave well alone, some people have had problems after changing it. I experienced this when I changed mine in my previous car. If the box is running ok then dont touch it.

    Then it would be a bit like saying "if the engine's running OK, don't change the engine oil" .

    If VX recommend an auto box oil change, then that's how it should be IMO.

    Of course VX would recommend it and probably state at "your local VX dealership". More money for them.

    I changed mine at 100,000 in my Ford Scorpio and caused problems, before I changed it, it was running fine. Iv learn from it and wont change it again until it seems to be playing up.
