    Default

    Not all models, varies by year and engine

    Mines a 2005 (2004MY) and these were :
    ECO Flex
    20K miles / 2 years
    except, Y30DT 30K miles / 2 years

    This then changed to ECO Service :
    20K miles / 1 year

    The service follows the following pattern :
    ABABE
    A - oil
    B - oil, pollen filter. air filter, fuel filter
    E - oil, pollen filter, air filter, fuel filter, cambelt
    Spark plugs may also be required, varies by engine
    Sadly this doesn't apply to the 3.0 V6 CDTI, the service pattern is ABCE
    C - oil, pollen filter

    The flexible service intervals were a bit of a flop and caused confusion.

    It required the use of 5W30 GM longlife oil GM-LL025 from the start.


    As others have said 1yr 20k

    All Vectra C are supposed to use GM-LL025 oil, no matter what the age or engine
    However, it now appears to be an option at dealerships and you have to actually request that they use it!
    Otherwise they use 10W40 which is fine anyway as it will last about 20K miles / 1 year

    Even though mine is on ECO Flex 30K miles / 2 years it never reaches that!
    It lasts to about 20K miles, which means mine is in for a service roughly every 9 months
    Strangely the VX brochure doesn't mention this long service interval, specific to the Y30DT
    Equally, the Isuzu specification is also for 20K miles / 1 year, so I've no idea where VX got theirs from!
