    Default Servicing 1.8vvt

    I've a 2008 1.8vvt Vectra LIFE - (very basic model). I bought this in April 2009 with 16k on the clock. The car we first serviced in March 2009.
    Question:
    The car will need serviced within 12-months or 20k - so March 2010 or 36k whichever comers first - I'm fine with this.
    Does the car inform me 9automatically) when the next service is due or due I need to refer to the service book.
    Is there someway I can find the mileage via the instrument cluster
    To my knowledge the central display only does the time and radio station.
    The main instrument panel only shows total milage & previous milage since the last rest.
    Does this car also have a service indicator.

    What is the typical cost for a 2nd Service (40k) and what do the actually do for this amount of money.

    Sorry for a lost of questions on this forum - Thanks in advance.

    You should get the word InSP briefly appear in the odometer display instead of the mileage when you first turn the key when a service is due. Mentioned in the handbook somewhere.

    Go to vauxhall and see what they say and folow it. My VVT 1.8 was dead at 30k and vauxhall wouldn't change the engine despite me have complained about the car @ 2,000 miles and them sayingjust see how it goes....

    I had to change it myself which wasn't really fun!
