    Default 2nd year service

    Just before i bought car they told me they had carried out a 2nd year service, Now i think 2nd year service is a main service yes/no ?

    Now seeing as i had to take car back to them about rear disks being scored and front pads were knackered i bet they haven't changed brake/clutch fluid either and since i have smelly aircon i bet the pollen filter hasn't been changed...

    Now it means my next service should be a interim service (basically oil/filter) so no brake fluid change

    Is there anyway to check fluid ? and where's polled filler housed

    Check the front section of service book, this will list and detail the items
    Usually the second is the major service, typically adding air and fuel filter plus a physical examination of the brakes
    Therefore ask for the brake measurements (should be reported in mm not %)

    Brake fluid is normally three years, then every second year
    See the back of the service book

    They ticked main service but didn't tick any of the boxes plus handbook says change brake/clutch fluid every 2 years

    Thing is Vauxhall have said if they can't be sure last service was main then it might be best to do main again next service instead of interim whitch will cost me more money.

    Was it done at a Vaux main dealer or Network Q? if so, car should have come back with a vehicle condition sheet, showing things like tyre tread depth, brake condition etc.

    My Astra J service booklet doesn't list what work each service interval comprises of anymore - the Vec C did. So I no longer have visibility of what should be/needs to be done at each service.

    Presumably, they paid for it, so ask for copies of the service worksheet, record, and receipt (marked copy) for records only
    This will then confirm what type of service and parts

    I had this same issue when VX were paying for the service on my car, they wouldn't print out the receipts, but they did copy the worksheets and record
    Now that the receipts are over three years old they now supplied these to me

    Right where do I stand, just off phone with ford dealer they say they just replaced oil/air filter but I was told it was main service and they have ticked main service told them 2nd service was meant to be main but they said they use a firm called autodata and according to them 3rd service is main.

    Two options
    A
    Contact VX, ask for outline of service scehdule
    B
    Visit VX dealership and ask for a blank service worksheet that applies to your car (and this is the option I would go for)

    When I am buying a car I ask for a blank worksheet or at the first service for such a copy

    Might be correct that the service is AABAAC
    If you have a high mileage then the air filter will last two years and the pollen filter one year, so they won't need replacing at every service

    Personally, wait to third service and have that done to VX OE standard, plus confirming you want additional items carried out (if not required)
    However, you should be able to obtain copies of the previous services (even if they paid for them at cost pre-sales)

    Cars only done 17k last service was at ford garage @ 15500k they have only replaced oil/air filter I've spoken with Vauxhall and they say 2nd service is main so looks like I will have to get a main service done end of Dec/Jan.

    But I'm going to have to buy a pollen filter because I get a wet dog smell when aircon is on and it hasn't been changed since new
