    Vehicle : Vectra Hatchback

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.2 DTi

    Year : 2003

    Default Service Overdue? Advice Please :)

    I've owned my Vectra since 30th October 2006 (2.2 DTi SRi) with 42k miles on the clock.

    Now, I havent managed to get an annual service completed, and with the millage at 62k I'm sure it would be due (20k interval, though it is 14months since service)

    I would just like advice on what had to be done for this mileage, and what sort of costs I should prepare for.

    I want to get this completed ASAP.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Chris

    More than likely my main dealer (Platinum Vauxhall).

    Am I right in thinking a Cam Belt should be due soon?

    no cambelt on the DTi's..just a nice maintainence free chain....

    At the age of your car i'd strongly reccomend that unless you're fastidious about a main dealer history i'd go to an independant as you'll save loads on the labour rates....

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    Just had a look at my costs from VX

    Service No2 £192 Service
    No3 £192 Service & MOT
    No4 £210 Service & MOT & Brake fluid change

    I would still rather a vx service than an independent one IMO.
