    Default Service - Main Dealer or independent

    Cars just flashed up 1,000 to service warning
    Not sure what to do, car has dealer history to date but its now out of warranty
    Car will be up for sale very soon (yes I know been saying for a while but its got to go soon not allowed to run a car over 3 years old for work)
    Service is the 3rd ecoflex service and the car is on 63,000 miles
    Services 23,000 and 42,000 (so much for a 30,000 interval)
    Rang dealer looking at £300 (not doing brake fluid that was done last year at 42K) seems a lot for a few litres of oil and air, oil and fuel filter.
    So what do I do???????????
    Take to an independent service agent, would this have any effect on the residual value when i come to sell.
    Or let Vauxhall pull my pants down and spank me
    The car is a 3.0 CDTI SRI Auto (May 2005)

    use the independant.. it will have no effect whatsoever on your resale value.... the punters only ever look for stamps in books....

    I have my own stamp, and not been beaten down on any of my trade ins due to service location (self). Private purchaser may ask more questions though.
