Recommended garages for car service - Mk 4 Clio 1.5 DCI

Hello,

I have a 2015 Clio with around 10,800 miles. I've booked it in for a service at the dealer for the 30th September and by then it would have close to 11,500 to 12k miles. They had advised me that the 1st service only consists of a cabin filter change!! and that they will only look at the oil and then determine if this needs changing too (ive heard them reject oil changes with cars at 14k). They advised that the oil only need changing at 18k and air filter at 36k. Since i have my 1st and 2nd service free i'm forced to get it done however if they don't change the oil then i would like to do this (and the air filter) at another garage to save costs.

To keep the warranty i would get the part from Renault ( oil from amazon) and would need the work to be done at a vat register garage. Can anyone recommend a garage to have this done? ( oil and oil /air filters changed). I'm based in Shaw (OL2 8RW) and happy to travel.

Also does anyone know what my engine oil capacity is - 1.5 DCI 2015 EDC

Thanks

Komi

If wanting to show job done on Service History, I'd ask garage to supply oil (check the spec) or get the oil from Renault so there is no argument.
Check with garage if you are okay to supply the oil , some get funny.
Don't forget oil filter.

Thanks - Will check the good garage scheme, just didn't want anyone playing with my new car not knowing what they're doing

Will get the oil and air filter via Renault and probably see if i can get away with oil from another supplier (Renault want 50+ while i can get for <30.00)
