    Default 60k service and only oil replaced?

    I had a 60k service on my 2004 2.0 Dti this week and the dealer said they only had done the oil filter, oil plus a safety check...as it was a 'free service' due to problems earlier so I wonder if they've 'missed' a few things?

    According to the service booklet they should have done:
    replace pollen filter every 60k,
    replace air filter every 30k (so now too),
    drain fuel filter,
    replace fuel filter every 60k.

    Advice anyone?

    Go back show them the service booklet and let them know that your onto VX customer services. If they've signed the book surely they have to follow the service schedule.....

    The service should be done after a mileage of 'x' OR 'x' years - whatever comes first - i.e. just because the car has hit 60k, they might have effectively done the 60k service earlier (this how it works on the 1.9, so I assume DTI is the same).

    Either way, your service history and/or receipts should say.

    Good point.... the only reason something should'nt be replaced is if it aint needing replaced... the mileage/year is a guide, but a reliable one... except for the cam belt change... should be done at 40k IMO.
