    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : lots !

    Default Mods & warrenty?

    If I do a few minor bits and bobs - reversing sensors & heated washer jets, on a car still under 3 years old, what effect will this have on the warrenty?

    In a similar vein, I take it fitting any service part myself, even genuine GM, is technically a no-no ( thinks rear brakes are looking ropey and due 30k service soon )

    fitting the parts you have fitted should not affect the warranty apart from the washer jets,if there was a fault that was found to be caused by your washer jets then that fault would not be covered,as to the warranty all servicing should be done by the dealer in the first 3 years,that way you will have more comeback if anything should go wrong when the car is just out of warranty,plus any reworks that your car needs will get done,DO NOT do the service your self as this may void the warranty as all service work must be done by a vat registered garage,but us your main dealer for possibly less future hassle.as to rear brakes there is no reason why you cannot do this yourself,but should say the caliper break then the warranty wont cover this

    Brakes etc would be fine, a main dealer mechanic will not question who fitted pads as long as its genuine parts fitted and it wasn't damaged whilst fitting them. Thats about the only thing you would change as the rest would be under warranty.

    I self service, and have never had warranty claims issues. BUT my warranty always expires well within 3 years due to the mileage I do.
