    Default Interim Service

    Afternoon all,

    I brought a 56 plate Vectra 1.8 sri estate a few weeks ago and it now requires a interim service. The cheapest Vauxhall garage I could find quoted me £138.24 for this and that includes fully synthetic oil. Now to me £138 sounds way too much for just changing the oil and giving the car a once over.

    Does this price sound right or can I get it cheaper elsewhere? The only reason I asked Vauxhall is that the car is still under warrenty.

    Thanks

    Yes, thats sounds about right to me. I pay my VX dealer around £78/80 just for a oil and filter change midway between official service periods.

    Thanks guys. Didn't realise a oil change costs so much these days

    Could someone tell me when the service intervals are? I'll be going for the interim service on Tuesday so the mileage will still be 30,000.

    Thanks
    Ps, its a 1.8 petroll.

    Wait till your MOT. This will give it a once over (not removing wheels etc but it is a once over) and get your oil & filters replaced at your own leisure. IMO as good as a service.

    my interim service was due in april this year, like you i was quoted for £138 for the job. when i asked what they actually did they said change the oil & check moving parts. i asked them to give me a good reason why i shouldn't use joe bloggs back street garage & the response was they use genuine vauxhall parts - what, oil !!. ended up doing it myself. the car is now 5 years old so the FSH that i had til now is probably worthless now anyway.

    i had 3 quotes for the 3rd year interim service today, only 2 sensible ones tho!
    the first one quoted £175, interim service and Emission Control Service - what a load of tosh that is!

    i asked them to quote me for what it needs not what they want to sell me, service on its own £143 - 2nd dealer quoted me £139

    I would do the service my self, i'm a technician by trade, but i want the stamp in the book as if i have any further problems in year 4 i stand a greater chance of obtaining goodwill having a full service history and supporting the dealer network.

    Service 4 will be a different case tho!

    An oil & filter change at my local National when booked online only costs me £35 (and I get Tesco points too) and they check the tread depths, tyre condtions, exhaust condition, visual brake wear all for free into the bargain. I'm sure you can check/change your air filter & plugs when necessary and take a look at your drive belts conditions. Sod paying any garage to do simple stuff like that !
