    usually very little as you can pick loads of faults in them.. they check all aspects of the car allegedly.. BUT if they find a fault they are not oblidged to rectify it...thank heavens for the comprehensive warranty

    At least mine gave the car a full service just before I purchased - or at least I hope they did! As the car will not have another service for another 12 months (then 2 years old)

    Its nothing more than a guarantee and commitment from the supplying dealership
    However, in most cases the dealership will replace this with a service for free as part of the sales agreement

    What you should do is get a coipy of the Network Q 114 point check
    It should have the date and completion
    I've bought two cars and neither has really had it performed correctly

    On my first Vectra the car was all signed over, then I went to view it
    The aerial was missing
    The nearside rear brake had a visible mark on it
    The stereo code (Passcard) was missing
    The second key was missing
    So much for the Network Q quality check!

    On my most recent purchase
    There was no handbook
    No service book
    The rear ashtray was missing
    The wrong type of warranty was applied by the dealership, but Network Q corrected this promptly
    I've not even been able to get a copy of the quality check on this one!
    The car wasn't due a service until May this year, or 30K miles
    I also checked with VX and there was no services recorded
    However, when the service book finally arrived last week, it is showing a service a month before I even looked at the car!

    Agree with all that has been said. The 114-point check is not worth the paper it's printed on, and I'm tempted to say they merely check for the existence of a chassis, wheels and tyres, windows, engine/drivetrain, steering, brakes, an exhaust and painted body panels, but I did get a service and new front tyres, and they replaced a sensor. But the 1-year guarantee combined with whatever may be left of the manufacturer's warranty are both good or very good (providing you pester the dealer if you have to). I found the help and information I got from people on this site invaluable in getting all my niggles sorted before the warranty ran out.

    Suppose it should be remembered that sometimes people trade in cars because they have ongoing problems, and in my case I had one such problem which the 114-point check should have identified, or am I being stupid in assuming that the 114-point check should identify problems which are covered under the manufacturer's warranty?

    they should, but the check doesn't oblidge them to fix a thing, as i found out..

    it's normally the sales and service managers who decide how much money is in the car, to then decide if they will bother to fix any faults on the list..

    Yeh, that figures. Obviously they want a 'clean' sale which then obliges the customer to pick up report and chase any faults before the warranty runs out. They don't want pre-sale costs eating into their Network-Q profit !

    At least I got a good trade in on my 2-year old Vectra Active saloon, when I traded up to the Edition 100.
