    Default 1st service Costs

    Just rang around the following garages for prices for the first service of my vectra 1.9 cdti 150.

    It has only done 6000 since new and i was wondering if the rates ive been getting quoted are right.

    Drive Vauxhall £172

    Sherwoods £160 (They said they would price match anyone else)

    Evan Halshaw £149

    Any ideas on how i can get this done any cheaper and do the rates look right?

    Ours need it's 60k service which is only a small one and will cost £162 from our local dealer!! We know it was done when we brought it but as it wasn't a main dealership it wasn't stamped.

    IMO the dealers always rip the arse out of labour. If your get a parts list the cost of labour easily tops over 75% of the bill....

    Get a good independent look here, http://www.goodgaragescheme.co.uk/. Its a credited list of top indy garages where you can type in your postcode to locate. All garages have reviews from past customers.

    My 90k service quoted from the dealers was £140 for a oil and filter change, and a pollen filter change!!!!!

    Local indy quoted £80. Also the myth that people have about the warranty becomes invalid is NONSENSE!!!! As long as their VAT registered and use genuine parts (why use cheaper generic ones anyway?) your warranty is intact!!!

    Garage we know and trust and are members of this are 30 miles from us, nearest once was almost 10 anyway. We just wanted to see how much Vauxhall was as it's at the top of the road.

    I don't trust dealers wotso ever. My first new ish car (02 reg Fiesta) 6 months old was serviced twice at the dealers so i could keep the warranty and have a nice dealers stamp in service book. 3rd service done by my mate who said the oil had been changed but nothing else!!! Basically i was charged £90 for oil. Oh and the time it took to empty old and put in new!!! I now use a friend who works for a dealer and charges me £50 a service and i get a nice stamp.

    Only paid £136.41 for 1st service 2 months ago.

    One of the reasons I bought the Vectra was I trusted our local dealer, (Goldsmith and Allcorn) less than a mile from home.

    We've used them before (although several years ago, before I had a company car) and never had any problems. Always reliable, phone when they say they're going to and never had a problem with their work.

    To be honest, now that I'm paying all the bills again, I wont take it anywhere else.
