    Default Dealer advice Andover/Winchester area

    Following from this http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=25720 I think a delaer trip is in order. If I go on the way home from work I have a choice of:

    Approach Andover
    Picador Winchester

    Anyone used either of these, any recommendations? I can travel further afield on good advice...

    Thanks alot all.

    I'd go to Approach Andover! better service...

    I know a few people in there and pretty much most of the guys that work there own Vauxhalls. There is alot of experience in there, A mechanic called Neil and another Called Grant. Both are really good. Grant has done a fair few bits for my cars down the years

    But there is also Newbury Vauxhall too. ( I wouldnt take my car there)
    And Approach Salisbury.

    Would support Silver V's coments on Newbury Vauxhall. Bought my car from them just over a year ago and had all sorts of issues with the dealer itself - not carrying out work properly before picking car up, headlight fixing screws missing (found this out when I first cleaned it), stereo manual missing from the glovebox........ list goes on!!!

    Have to say though, touch wood the car has always been spot on!!

    Working in Basingstoke, I have used the dealer there (J. Davy) and they did a reasonable job, but nothing over the odds to earn them a specific recommendation.

    I use Approach Salisbury, staff are always very helpful so I imagine the Andover one will be good too.

    Thanks for replies all. In the end dealer visit not necessary as I solved my stuck CD problem; I'll bear the comments in mind though.

    Used to live in Basingstoke, not sure about J Davy. When I first got my Veccy B, they said a full service would be in the region of £140/£150. Turned out to be £200 and they wanted me to agree to more work which wasn't actually required. Never went back after that!

    Thanks for the heads up about J Davy. As I said, they did a reasonable job but by the sounds of things and Silver V's recommendations, will probably stick to using the dealer in Andover instead now.
