This is just another dealership ripping customers off anyone noticed unusual fees and what’s average price for first service

I would contact them and question the £1 for screen wash. It may sound petty but if they are doing this to everyone that's a lot of money. I am charged normally around £159,99for a service. I always book it through the Vauxhall website cheaper than the R&D website.

Yes your correct.£1 charged every car will make them a fortune.Had I not topped mine and my daughters up .I probably would not have questioned it What’s more annoying My car was to have radio / Nav update.That had the car 2 days and still couldn’t do update .So will have to wait on them getting back to me to rebook for update

Hi Lock-N
I have just had my second service carried out at our local dealership.
I waited until the vehicle had passed its second birthday and then joined the Vauxhall Service Club, which entitled me to a discount on service costs.
My first service was £162 which included £1 for screen wash.
Ive just paid £212 for second service which also included £1 for screen wash.

I use Bristol Street Vauxhall.
