    Pentagon Garage - Derby

    Hey guys,

    I bought an 06 Mk5 Astra SXi last month and it's due for it's 1st service in a month or so. I live in Derby and so the Pentagon garage is my nearest Vauxall dealership, so wanted to know what they were like for servicing? I've been reading on this forum (or was it on Astra-SRI?! ) about the variation in prices at Vauxhall dealerships for servicing, so appreciate any comments on them.

    Cheers

    Never used them before myself for servicing. but best thing to do is ring round if you don't mind traveling you will prob get it cheaper.

    if you ask nicely someone on here (( cough) me works for a vauxhall dealership but in nottingham.
    life's to fast to go slow. so get the turbo.

    I've always used Smiths of Ilkeston, nice family run business with reasonable servicing costs & good service.
    My family has bought 3 new cars off them so far & they service my 888.

    After getting various quotes from Pentagon Vauxhall for a number of different things i have to say they are rather expensive and alot of people have the same opinion! Marehay Vauxhall just outside of Ripley is reasonable mate if you want to try them!

    Thats the three to ring.

    Reg Vardy's (Evans Halshaw) in Nottingham....see astragsiturbo.

    Smiths of Ilkeston, two of the lads there are VxSCC members and very helpful

    Marehay in Riply, never used them but only heard good things about them.

    Pentagon.....i'd NEVER take my or Zoes car there. I'm a member of vx220.org and the horror stories are quite eye opening.

    Oh, Tim you have PM.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I work in Derby city centre so for convenience, Pentagon is the prefferred option, but if they're not great then I might reconsider!

    I bought my car from Marehay at Ripley and have it serviced there. They were a friendly and helpful lot when i bought the car and gave a good service.

    I'm not sure how they compare to other local garages, but if you're happy with somewhere, why move.

    I took my mk5 astra to a garage just round the corner from pentagon vauxhall on west meadows ind estate Called bulldog motors they did a full service in enginge treatment and oil treatment for something like £130 i think(i got that price buy quoting Astra club when booking naughtly got that from another site works for all astras and gets 10%of other stuf and cars i think to).
