    Service Intervals

    Regular servicing and maintenance by your Vauxhall Retailer will help keep your vehicle in peak condition.


    You’ll benefit from expert care by fully trained technicians, genuine Vauxhall parts, and free checks for safety enhancements, recalls and software upgrades.


    We recommend that cars are serviced every year or 20,000 miles, with:


    • An interim service every 1 year or 20,000 miles (whichever occurs first)
    • A main service every 2 years or 40,000 miles (whichever occurs first).


    Most vans should have a main service every 2 years or 25,000 miles (whichever comes first). Of course, if your service display light comes on sooner than this, do get it checked out straightaway.


    Please check your owners’ manual to confirm exactly what your Vauxhall needs.

    Regular Driver Checks

    You don’t always need to bring your car to us. Some checks can easily be done at home. Before you start, please ensure your vehicle is parked and the engine is cool.

  • A technician checks under a vehicle’s bonnet

    Under the bonnet

    It’s the driver’s responsibility to make checks under the bonnet. We’ve coloured the caps of the essential checks in yellow, to help you identify them. Don’t forget to turn off the ignition first!


    • Screen wash: Top up regularly so you can keep the windscreen clean and visibility good.
    • Coolant: This reservoir is clear so you can check the level without opening the cap. Gently rock it to see the fluid move. Ensure it’s between the MIN and MAX markers.
    • Oil: Pull out the dipstick and wipe clean. Re-insert completely then pull out again. You’ll see the level of the oil, which should be between the MIN and MAX markers.
    • Brake fluid: This reservoir is clear so you can check the level without opening the cap. Gently rock it to see the fluid move. Ensure it’s between the MIN and MAX markers.


    If you need any of these topping up, pop in to your local Vauxhall Retailer.

  • Exterior checks

    • Wheels and tyres: Check they’re undamaged and ensure your tyre treads are over 2mm in depth. Check your tyre pressures (and don’t forget the spare).
    • Lights: Keep all exterior lights clean. Check for cracks in the covers and blown bulbs.
    • Windscreen: Check it’s free from chips or cracks, especially in the driver’s line of sight.
    • Windscreen wipers: Check they’re in good condition and can keep your windscreen clean.
    • Bodywork: Check for scratches or damage and get them repaired before any corrosion starts.
  • Interior checks

    • Steering: Check your steering isn’t excessively loose.
    • Handbrake: Check it holds and that the lever doesn’t pull too high.
    • Pedals: Check all pedals are working as they should.
    • Mirrors: Check all three mirrors are clean and in good condition.
    • Instrument lights: Check they all illuminate when you turn on the ignition, and check your gauges are working too.

    What is an MOT?

    An MOT, or Ministry of Transportation test, is an annual inspection that tests your vehicle’s safety and exhaust emissions to ensure it’s roadworthy.


    Your MOT will be due on the third anniversary of its registration, fourth in Northern Ireland, and each year after that. You'll need to renew your MOT before it expires and you can do this from 28 days before the due date.


    Our Vauxhall Retailers are approved to conduct MOTs, and use their expertise to look after your Vauxhall.

    Prepare for your MOT

    Here’s what to check ahead of your MOT:


    1. Lights: check all lights are working properly - headlights, sidelights, rear lights, hazard light, indicators and brake lights. Ask a friend to help with brake lights in particular.
    2. Number plates: ensure the number plates are readable and clean.
    3. Wheels and tyres: check the wheels and tyres are free of damage, and that your tyre tread depth is 2mm or over.
    4. Windscreen: Check there is no windscreen damage larger than 10mm in front of the driver and 40mm across the rest of the screen.
    5. Windscreen wipers: Check there aren’t any tears or holes in the rubber of front and rear wipers. They need to be able to keep your windscreen clean.
    6. Screenwash: Top up the screenwash before having an MOT – if it’s empty, you can fail an MOT.
    7. Fuel and engine oil: Check the fuel and engine oil levels are okay, as technicians will need them both to test the vehicle’s emissions levels.
    8. Seats and seatbelts: All seatbelts should be undamaged and lock if you tug them. The driver’s seat should be adjustable forwards and backwards too.
    9. Horn: Check your horn with a short blast. If it doesn’t work, it’ll need to be repaired.
    10. Instrument warning lights: Check your lights all come on then go off when you turn the ignition key, and check your speedometer is working too.


    If you need anything checked ahead of your MOT, your local Vauxhall Retailer is on hand to help.

    Why Vauxhall?

    Vauxhall Retailers are government-approved MOT testing stations. Our expert and fully-trained technicians can test your vehicle in our Vauxhall workshops, and are on hand to provide advice and support. They’ll use equipment designed for the job and genuine Vauxhall parts if anything needs replacing.


    If you’re in Northern Ireland, you’ll need to attend a government testing centre – but you can still benefit from your local Retailer’s expertise if your Vauxhall needs any repairs.

Will watching the video use up data allowance on my mobile phone?

How long will this video be available to view?

Your video will be available to view for three months. If you wish to keep the video longer, please request this directly with the Vauxhall Retailer who sent you the video.
