    Default Service Interval for the 1.9CDTi

    I've just been reading a pdf version of the Vectra manual and noticed that the service interval for the 1.9CDTi engine is 20k miles.

    Do you 1.9CDTi owners think this is too long? I have the same engine in my alfa and its interval is 12.5k miles. I had it done last week and it has been a lot quieter since, but I think if I had let it go another 7.5k miles, it would have clapped out it was getting that noisy.

    Yes it is 20k miles, but like you I too thought it was quite a long period between oil changes even though it does use fully synthetic oil. Therfore I have always had the oil and filter changed every 10k miles, just for peace of mind really. Maybe just wasting money, but I'm sure its got to be beneficial in the long term.

    I am pretty sure its actualy 30k interval max not 20k,could not imagine letting it go that long.
