Due my year 2 service - know there are a lot of Scottish members - any recommendations for good value servicing in West/Central Scotland area ?Needs to be approved etc to keep warranty


Some of the prices quoted so far are horrible - close to 400 pounds !

If you intend to keep the car for 2/3 years and you can afford to pay upfront, Arnold Clark service plans are unbeatable on price. Downsides are during the warranty period the plan needs to be purchased 60 days before service and they are not transferrable to a new owner.

As Swinton says, if you join the Vauxhall Service Club you will be discounted on service and MOT charges within Vauxhall's network. You can do it online but you will have to verify ownership of the vehicle at your dealer before registration is completed. I was asked to take the registration document. Quite straightforward. The 2nd year service is more expensive than the 1st and 3rd.

You can of course have the car serviced at any VAT registered garage you choose under the EU Block Exemption Rules and it won't affect the terms of your warranty so long as they use genuine parts eg Dexos2 engine oil and VX filter. Gives you a bit more leeway to shop around and see what's on offer. <!--if gte mso 9>

You can take it to the VX garage for that, however they will charge you £29-99 for the privilege.

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !
