Re: Servicing is so confusing!


vehicle servicing is generally done on mileage or time whichever comes first. So if lets pretend you had a car that was due its 2 year or 24,000 mile service, the service would have to be done at 24,000 miles or 2 years whichever came first and the necessary components replaced and checks made. As a rough guide most vehicle's require a service once a year or every 12,000 miles. First service is usually a minor service, then next is an interim service and after that is a more major service, but this is only a guide as it is variable amongst manufacturers. The engine in your vel satis is the same Isuzu unit the Saab use in their 9.5 and vauxhall use in their Signam so you could ask a saab or Vauxall dealer the recommended service intervals and service requirements.

Currently in Haree's garage:
I don't have a garage just a driveway. The Modus 1.6 16v VVT Dynamique Auto is my Grandparents car which I also drive.
