    Exclamation Surely this is ********

    Had a chat with a Vauxhall dealer today, the 3yr/60,000 warranty was mentioned. News to me that if i done 22,000 miles in the first year then i would be out of warranty by 2000 miles. Someone confirm that he is talking b***ocks.

    He's talking boll****. Warranty is 3 years/60,000 miles regardless of how you clock up those miles.

    He wasn't referring to servicing was he? If you do 20,000 you should be having it serviced to keep within Vx service schedule. If you don't, then they can refuse future warranty work - but your warranty doesn't just go if you go past a service schedule mileage, especially by only 10%. If that's what it is, then simply get a service ASAP.

    What dealers BTW Anthony? Hopefully not EMC?

    Default check the small print

    but surely all warranties are specific miles/specific time span whichever comes first, so as long as you have met vx service schedule you should be fine, if not i think this could be a precadent for us all, again, this is where vx seem to let us down, imbeciles called dealers.
    hope you get it all sorted out soon mate

    The warranty is for three years or sixty thousand miles which ever occurs first, as long as you maintain the vehicle in accordance with the manufactures recommendations, ie every 1 year/20,000 miles which ever occurs first due to block exemption this does not have to be a dealer, just as long as you have a reciept and genuine parts are used.
    the mileage limitation can be removed at a cost if you are a high milage user.

    Yep, complete rubbish mate. My car had done 45,000 in the first year and they still did Warranty work on it. Had an exhaust problem a few weeks back at 55,000 (year and half old) and it was still done for free !!!

    60,000 miles is weeks away for me, has anybody got any info on extended warranty, is it worth it, will they cover my high mileage. I applied for some info online but nothing has come through

    Cheers

    Just phoned them up, they do a 4th year extended warranty but that is still limited to 60,000 miles. They don't do a policy which extends further than 60,000 miles

    Anyone have warranties with other firms ??

    Cheers

    Not yet but I am looking into it. Warranty Holdings looks to be about the best but I am open to suggestions if anyone knows better?
