    Default Recommend a garage in Sussex

    As the title suggests, can anyone recommend a decent garage in Sussex for a service?
    One that 'knows' Vauxhalls, both strengths and weaknesses.

    The one I currently use is more of a VW/Audi specialist.

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh, apologies if this is in the wrong section!

    The best place to get a service is in your own back garden. Its quite easy to carry out a service, you know exactly whats been done, and what parts have been replaced, and you know its been done properly. Its also an ideal opportunity to have a good look around your car and check items for wear and tear. A short service consists of an oil and filter change a so called major service will consist of an oil change and perhaps an air, fuel and pollen filter plus the door hinges greasing if your lucky.If you look at the itemised bill you get a lot of the items listed are visual checks, which is something anyone can do. In most garages this sort of work is carried out by a YTS lad or a apprentice.
    Find out how to do your own servicing, the information is easily obtainable in books or on these Forums, you'll get a lot of satisfaction, save yourself a lot of money, and will soon move on to doing things like changing brake pads, etc.
    By all means find a good local garage you can use for more complicated tasks like cambelt change, etc.
    Good Luck

    I have done my servicing in the past on other vehicles. My main problem is the time - two kids and a missus!

    Thanks for the advice though, it's put a seed in my head!

    About 11 miles from you (and a few hundred yards from me) in Worthing is a "Vauxhall Specialist" Called Sea Place Garage. Quite a bigish outfit, been a VX dealer and service garage for many years...AVOID!!
