    Default Oil Change Cost

    Spoke to my local dealer about an oil change only to be told that the new Vectra does not need it for 20,000 miles or 12 months (I think) but was quoted a price of £88 for the oil change is this correct?

    I was told the oil should be 05 - 30 grade fully synthetic...but still sounds dear.

    The interval and oil grade is correct..

    The price is just a rip-off IMO..the oil and filter will cost them no more than £11.00 max..once you start buying engine oil in 205 litre barrels the price per litre just gets stupid..

    What you are paying for is the 'expertise' of the dealers and the shiney showrooms..

    But £88 is one of the cheaper quotes i've seen.

    My local vauxhall dealer (where I got the car) quoted approx. £60 for an oil and filter change.

    The fully synthetic oil is the long life and as you found , seems to be Circ £90 . This is suposed to be good for 30,000 or 12 months. The 20,000 or 12 months oil is semi synthetic 10-40 & is about £42 for a change, Or £20.50 for 5Ltr over the counter. Look in your service book it should tell you what they have been using. So you would be better of having 2 semi synthetic oil changes for £82 and this would cover 40,000.

    I've just been to the dealer down the road from the office and he wanted £38 incl VAT for the oil filter alone!!! i was stunned!!

    he said there are two variants of the 3.0 diesel engine, Z30DT, and Y30DT - how can i determine which engine i've got?? bearing in mind i havent got the handbook or service book to hand.

    £38 was for the Y30DT, the Z30DT was £34.

    What a scandal!! Its only paper!
