Vauxhall has announced a new initiative across its national service and repair network intended to position its retailers as “go-to” outlets for parts and service, while offering prices it says would normally only seen in the aftermarket sector. The services are offered under the Vauxhall Fixed Price Repairs banner.
Vauxhall Fixed Price Repairs offers a simple choice of two levels of service. ‘Genuine Vauxhall’ provides original equipment (OE) parts for those customers who insist on Vauxhall manufactured parts. While a second tier – ‘Vauxhall Approved’ – comes with a two-year parts and labour warranty for customers with cars over three years old who are looking for a blend of quality and affordability. Both levels are carried out by Vauxhall’s trained technicians, and include parts, labour and VAT.
Vauxhall is also offering zero-per cent interest on all parts and servicing from three to 12 months. This could mean that a front brake pad service could cost just £24.75 per month over four months (total cost: £99), or a complete cambelt service, £33.25 per month over 12 months (total cost: £399).
|AVG COST||VX GENUINE||VX APPROVED||4MTHS per cent|
|Front brake pad service||£185.00||£149.00||£99.00||From £24.75|
|Battery replacement||£202.65||£169.00||£109.00||From £27.25|
|Wiper blades replacement||£48.45||£39.00||£29.00||From £7.25|
|Prices include parts, labour & VAT|
‘Vauxhall is committed to putting value and quality front and centre in the minds of its owners,’ said Stephen Norman, Managing Director, Vauxhall Motors. ‘With the Fixed Price Repair programme our customers do not need to compromise by visiting aftermarket retailers, when they can visit their local Vauxhall dealer and enjoy comparable pricing, yet with the absolute confidence of being looked after by trained and qualified Vauxhall technicians.’
