First Service - Vauxhall Insignia

Ziggy in 2011

‘Ziggy’ went in today for its first service – I’ve covered just over 11000 miles. I’m continually impressed by the standard of customer service at my local Vauxhall Dealer – Forest Gate, Kettering. For a volume manufacturer, they demonstrated all the right moves – happy smiley people, small talk, efficiency and a good explanation of the work carried out – nice one folks!

As far as the car was concerned, no major worries after a year of ownership: a replacement switch is needed for the rear wipers and a small re-occurring issue with the paint finish on the rear bumper – that’s all. I’ve got a small scuff on the front offside alloy (my fault!) – but I’m amazed that’s the only damage I’ve experienced, given they’re massive wheels and ultra-low profile tyres (and, I live in Northamptonshire, the county that certainly seems to have its fair share of pot holes!!)
