    Default Service Intervals

    Just had a letter from sherwoods my local gargae for the first service of my car, Its a 1.9cdti 150 and its only got 6000 on the clock. I was under the impression that it was 20000 or 2 years which ever came first like on my previous astra.

    Is this the garage just trying to get a service ot of me or does it have to be done to keep everything right, coz i reckon it shouldn't need much after 6000 miles

    A service every 12 months is a good idea. Minimum of an oil & filter change to keep engine wear to a minimum.

    The miles are low, but for the price of an oil change its worth it.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    All facelifts Service every 10,000 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. Pre-facelifts had the option of extended service intervals up to 2 years and 20,000/30,000 miles (petrol/diesel respectively) if they were set up for Eco-Flex servicing, like mine. However, I am a low mileage driver, and my car gets properly serviced every year.

    TBH I actually thought it was 12 months or 20k miles whichever comes first.

    I assume you dont do very many miles if your've only got 6k on it.
