I just paid £220 from a vx dealer but others were quoting anything up yo £300. I think it depended on your dealer and if they were pushing service plans. Most seem to quote a higher price to scare everyone into buying a service plan.

Does anyone have the Vauxhall Antara service plan or has anyone bought a "service" plan from another manufacturer for another car ?

Basically I am being nosey to see whether these plans are competitive or whether it is better just to grab the best deal available for each service.

I have a plan with Bristol Street - 3 years servicing (60,000 miles) for £24 a month over 32 months. The dealer I bought the car from wanted £37.50 ish over 36 months!!

I live in the North East and contacted all the VX dealers in the patch as a customer for the first service and was quoted between £250 and £296 (they all said 1st and 3rd service was the same price). I did the same for the 2nd service and £380 ish was the average.

One thing I will say is the price of plans vary and I was told that there is a laid down price plus the dealers labour charges, which dealers can then offer discount with the alleged maximum being 24%. I was quoted a price from Evans Halshaw and Bristol Street beat it by giving the 24%. You also qualify for a load of other so called benefits and discounts by having a plan but whether they are worth anything in the real the word is to be seen (10% parts discount, free tire repairs, collection and delivery service etc....)

I went for the plan so I know what the cost will be over the 3 years, however, come the time if there are any offers on the go, the plan will be cancelled as it is really just a glorified savings scheme with a chosen dealer!

Spantara has gone in for her first service today. She has not done any great distance - just 6,755 km or just under 4,200 miles. She would have been due her annual service next month but, as I will be away almost all of September and as the month is to end with a drive to Gib. and back, I considered it best to get the job done now.

What can I tell you? Well, nothing really at the moment except that the charge for labour (both for mechanics and painters) here in Vigo is ‚ā¨52.90 per hour plus VAT.

Hopefully, Spantara will be returned to me after work today and I will be able to let you know the total cost.

My first service and warranty reactivation was carried out back in March - £270 all in, not too bad really for main dealer servicing

Not looking forward to the next one though

My first service was back in June, garage originally quoted £350, then when I started looking elsewhere discovered they had made a mistake!!! and it should be £249. They offered me a service plan when I bought it but that was going to cost £1000+ and I thought that was expensive for three services even with a free MOT. Guess you just have to shop around each year

Contacted my Local Vauxhall Dealer and they wanted £348.56 for first service when I have only done 8000 miles !!
Contacted other local Garages and got a quote of £171 so yes a difference of £177 , when I contacted the local Vauxhall Dealer again and asked them to match the best price they made me a special offer of £250 !! Still £75 for the same service.

I really would like to keep my Car Maintained , serviced and repaired by a Vauxhall Dealership but they clearly don't need my custom even when I literally live just 2 miles from the dealership garage.
Coupled with the Vauxhall demand that you pay them £29.99 for a 5 minute check otherwise you lose the 6 year anti corrosion warranty.

Come on Vauxhall - Really is the way to treat Customers who have placed faith in your product ?
