    Default Vectra 1.9CDTi Oil Change Query

    HI All
    My 55 plate Vectra is now out of warranty so I am looking to take it to a local indy for MOT and service. The car has been on the 20K flexi service and as I have been doing long journeys this has been convenient but possibly not a good thing. So with an oil change coming up I am weighing cost of a fill of 20K longlife oil and filter against 2X oil and filter every 10K miles.

    This has no doubt been discussed here before so apologies but can you give any idea how the costs compare and is it similar viscosity range of oil but normal against longlife?

    Thanks.

    Brian

    i belive the long life oil is for 18,000 miles and standard oil is for about 10,000 and i dont think the the cost is much difference HTH

    I personally beleive the oil should be changed every 10k or 1 year (which ever is 1st) VX advise that as long as you use the GM longlife oil 20k is fine. for peiece of mind i use the GM longlife and have it changed every 10K or 12months... VX have said that if i was additional oil chnages and i supply GM oil they will do it if i buy the filter from them for about £40 plus my oil.. which seemed fair as they wanted over £40 for the oil!, half that on fleabay.

    So its your call... others use the 10/40 and change it every 10k and no one yet has had a major issue... i did say yet!.
