    Default Just been serviced!

    Well my car has just been in to Vx for its 2nd year service having done 25,000 miles.I took some advice off this forum and used Vantage in Bury.

    Heres the result.

    Extras done : brake fluid changed,pollen filter changed and long life oil fitted.

    Faults reported:

    Nocking from rear of car ,fixed,exaust rubber mounting missing.
    Handbrake clunking, fixed. adjusted.
    Clutch pedal soft, fixed. new spring fitted.
    Water leak drivers side, no fault found.
    Notchey gear change, linkage adjusted.

    So all in all, very pleased with the service,though the price was a shock...........£219.00

    Still a little on the high side but i suppose you get what you pay for these days, always a bonus to find a garage that do a good job

    £219 and all warranty (ex plate is nothing) fixes. Are you sure that bill was for you and not for V/X warrenty claims @ V/X H/Q.

    Should be a law against this, glad your happy though.

    Glad you got sorted with Vantage, it was me who has recommended them in the past on his site, because I've always had good experience with them. Mine will be going in for its 2 year service in 2 months time, so fingers crossed it will be painless.

    I don't know if your within 10 miles of Bury but they do a "free" collection and delivery service for servicing, which works really well. Pick your car up on a transporter around 9am from your home or workplace and will drop it back before 5.30pm. Saves a lot of hassle.

    Part of the fun of taking your car in for a service is having a 1.0 corsa to thrash about in for a few hours. Or is it just me that enjoys that?
