    Non Vx Dealer

    Has anyone here taken their MK4 Astras to a non vx dealer for any repairs at all? I know that I will have to pay for it, but if it means the car will get fixed, I am happy to pay.

    I always kept it vauxhall (mainly as i found a decent dealer) - wont it effect the warranty (assuming it has one) if you take it elsewhere?

    I kep the service book stamped from a dealer, but anything that fell outside of regular servicing ended up being done by courtenays.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    It does yeh, under network q and all. I will go back to vx for services, to get the stamp, but for repairs, i was thinking of other garages, as they might listen to me for a change.
