Can anyone tell me if oil is changed in an Antara Diesel engine on the second service from new? I've just picked up my Antara from the Vauxhall dealer and the oil is black! Normal?

I have hadfour services, the first service was an intrim one which was the oil change due to the DPF killing the oil (you will find if you do lots of short journeys this can happen) Then i have had a first service with in a few thousand miles and they changed the oil again. I have had another intrim and a main service and both times they changed the oil.
So basically yes they should have changed the oil and filter. I was told by my garage they change the oil on every sevice.

Thanks for your reply! I thought that but wasn't sure. The dealer carrying out the service didn't give me the 'consumables' list which I thought was a bit dodgy! They said they had topped up the windscreen wash but didn't! Said they'd washed the car but hadn't! They said they'd valeted the car and hadn't. So all in all I've been done! And to top it all there was a 'clicking' noise from the rear nearside tyre which I noticed in the first 30 seconds after leaving the garage which turned out to be a 5 centimetre long screw embedded in the tyre!

Sound advice! I've phoned Vauxhall Customer Service for advice about the oil changes and they are going to take it up with the dealer!

Hi
My oil was changed during my second service - I remember very distinctly as I had to take car back - too much put in, was causing problems and they had to drain excess out

Hope this helps

Thanks. I've spoken to Vauxhall Customer Service UK who confirmed that the oil should have been changed! They are speaking to the dealer on my behalf! Watch this space!
