Hi, Has anyone come across the £29-99 fee to maintain the Vauxhall 6 yr anti corrosion warrantee.
I see that I can register my car for free to maintain the lifetime warrantee

The inspection is free if your service is done by a Vauxhall garage thats why on your on line service booking there is a green tick on left of booking info.
Thanks

The Block Exemption on Car Servicing should do away with Anti competition practices like this. In my experience All car service companies will normally do a check before a service and they would willingly confirm they have checked the car for corrosion or Panel Damage so for Vauxhall to insist that this is carried out by them would be in Breach of Block Exemption rules 2010. Currently confirming with Vauxhall that they will allow another service agent to complete the inspection and tick the book and that this would continue my Anti Corrosion Warranty . Will let you know their response.

My car was done at the same time as the service. The main dealer did it for me.
I think if you have your car serviced at an independent garage with VX parts and to the VX schedule then your warranty and ant corrosion warranty will have to be registered at the main dealer for £29-99. Also if you come to claim on your warranty for a high value item ( I have had to have a new gearbox) I think that VX will ask you to prove that your parts were genuine VX and it was serviced to their schedule. I'm sure that they would not make it easy.

Ok i have just been reeding this post and i have decided to go away from VX for servicing and now going to use a different garage. I have set up a cheaper plan but will give me everything that VX will give, and to be honest i dont like VX garages as they have your car nearly all day when a service only takes a few hours and the techies are not that good!
I have had alengthy conversation with the garage about the 29.99 charge and they have quoted the same as fourvees and they shouldnt be doing it.
I am sure at some piont ill need to get more work done under warrenty as my back door is starting to rust so they should treat me equal to any other person who uses VX.
