    Vehicle : Lada

    Trim : Riva

    Engine : 6.0 V12

    Year : 1954

    Mileage : 567890987

    Default

    Add brake fluid and a coolant change to that list. I have iridiums in my 1.8, are the worth the extra, dunno, but they were not that more expensive. Pollen filter too, get a carbon impregnated one, much better than standard.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : lots !

    Default

    I'd only do springs and solenoids if they need it. If it's a VVT, the belt is actually 100K but that's your choice.

    All fluids change / check is good advice I'd say - including having the air con serviced

    Default

    I have to agree, based on projection it will reach 90K miles at next service
    At that service I would do the Cambelt and Water Pump

    It would also be helpful to know what was done on the previous service, when these were and at what mileage, to work out what is due to be replaced now

    For the current service I would consider at least the oil, oil filter, pollen filter, and fuel filter
    If the last service did not include an air filter then add that
    If the Brake Fluid was not replaced since 2011, then add that too
    The Spark Plugs can last up to four services / four years, so these should have been replaced in 2010

    For the other components the service schedule should highlight if any steering and/or suspension components need replacing
    If they do, then replace both sides, not just the faulty one

    Don't forget that the water pump isn't driven off of the timing belt on the VVT, it's off of the aux belt, so not essential to change you could argue. That said though, I have just had a timing belt kit fitted to my own VVT at 58k, and opted to have the pump changed at the same time as the garage was in about that area anyway.
