    Exclamation calling all those in shefield area

    my car needs to go infor a service next months (not brilant timing)

    since i have not been i sheffield for a great deal of time i dont where the best place is to take my car for a service

    what are the main vauxhall dealers likes??

    where do you take your cars?

    i want vauxhall recomended parts but it doesn't have to be a vauxhall garage if that makes sense

    the car has done 55K miles but i want to give it the most thorugh service possible (i.e everything done) just for my piece of mind as i dont know what level of service the previous owner gave the car.
    I know this is going to be expensive and i am not just looking for the cheapest place i want the BEST place i.e realiblity, honestly, quailty of service and price.

    cheers in advance.

    Has it had the timing belt changed (should be done at 40k miles).

    If not that needs doing as well. It's approx £200 for the kit - fitted , including the pulleys and tensioners etc.

    Good, can't recomend anyone in Sheffield. Sorry.
    I do know the part manager at Hartwell Vauxhall tho.
    Doesn't say they do a good service.
    If they are as "good" at the Hartwell Vauxhall in Mansfield i'd find somewhere else!

    Yeah sheffield only takes me 20mins! You do go on the M1 dont you? I had a service and cambelt changed for £153 including labour!! The kit was £63 from CD Brammal in wakefield then got someone else to fit it! (the £63 is included in the price as the guy who fitted it bought it first). The guy who fitted mine has his own garage in Elland nr halifax and he's really good. He even came and picked my car up from work in huddersfield and dropped it off when he had finished it!
