Hi.
Where the warranty is concerned, do I need to have the car serviced by Reno to maintain the warranty or can I take it to somewhere cheaper / more reliable:laughing2:? What is the criteria regards warranty?
£300 for the 1st service seems quite steep when I know £120 of that is oil and filter.
Any / all advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

You can take it to any Garage as long as they use renault filters/oils and up to there spec sheet plus most are just a oil chage £300 is way over the top

Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 £240 at Drive Vauxhall

WOT !!!:dazed002:

So £90 at my local VXL garage.

Might pay to shop abaout.
Some car companies are still refusing Warranty using local garages despite OE parts.[read it in A/Express.]

I am going to go for the new 12 monthly services.

Cheers Andy

£291 for mine which is booked for monday, i said i've known others on the forum be more like £240 for the service and they said its the labour rate in south east and all Renault garages around price match, he could do it cheaper if they put cheaper oil in. I trust this garage so i don't mind really, got a few warranty pieces need doing so want to get it done at the same time.

Cheers lads.
I'll shop around as I live in a little town that has nobody local that I'd trust / know, may have to go Nott's or Doncaster way. If there's any recommended good garages in either location then let me know.

if using an independant, the garage needs to be VAT registered too I believe...

i paid £250 locally, got quoted over £300 but managed to haggle it down. Wasn't worth petrol / time to drive to Ren Tech or K-Tech...

Just had my first service yesterday at 12,800 miles. Cost £239 all in. Pretty reasonable considering some of the other cars I've had to have serviced. Conducted a health check all perfect except front tracking marginally out which they sorted for a further £15 upon collection.
