    Default Yearly Service?

    Ive never serviced a car before and was wondering if any of you south wales members know of any good garages.
    The best quote ive had so far is £150 by a vauxhall specialist in Newbridge.

    Is this a good price?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    That's sounds a fair price for a 1 year / 20K miles service

    For that money I would take it to Hutchins VX in Treforest mate.
    They genuinley are a good Vx dealer and £150 for a 20k service is about on the money.

    If the car is leaking power steering, do hope it's not the rack, cos that is MEGA money to replace

    100K mile service
    You really want to add a brake fluid change to that, but check the service book and history

    As for topups, they should all be included for the price of the service, all you pay for are the parts (oil, filters, brake fluid, power steering fluid, screenwash, and so on)
    A trick I use is to take the car in with the washer reservoir just above EMPTY
    That way the sensor doesn't give the warning, but when the car comes back it should be full
    If it's not, then it's back to the service desk to give them an earful
