    whats a full one as opposed to an oil and filter change ?Your service schedule will be much longer than 5,000 on a modern engine, changing it at 10,000 is a wise idea even with longlife oils. My Vec was variable servicing (on an Astra now) check your handbook.

    Look at the castrol site for a guide on oil change mileage and grade of oil ... http://www.castrol.com/castrol/ifram...tentId=7044829

    I can't find any Vectra C with a 5000 mile service interval
    Only the old Vectra B with the 1.7TD was 5000 miles
    The early ones were 20K miles, but this was revised back to 10K miles
    There is no harm in reducing from 10K to 5K miles, especially if you are a low mileage driver

    Vehicle : CDTI 150

    Trim : Design

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Default

    Vx recommend 5W30 every 1 year or 20K.
    I personally change mine at half these intervals (6mths or 10K) as I intend to keep the car for a few years.

    Aren't the latest models (see OP) 10K mles / 1 year though?
    The 1.8 was originally 20K miles / 2 years
    Equally, not all models are 20K miles / 1 year, from memory some are still 20K miles / 2 years
    Mine is 2 years / 30K miles (eeek!)

    Personally I always do an oil change half the specified interval. On the Vectra that was 10k.

    The Lancer's interval on 507.00 oil is 12.5k - £50 for 4 litres.
