    have contacted cls to service the habitation area of my van so that it continues my warrenty but does anybody know if i really have to go to a fiat dealer and get the engine and other stuff serviced for the warrenty or do you just get it serviced after so many miles like a car
    this is my first year at doing this so hopefully wont need to ask again next year
    if i do need this doing does anybody know anywhere near nottingham or grantham that does this and what is the price for ths to be done
    thankyou

    no mate, you dont. (have to go to fiat that is)

    you must use a VAT registered, preferably reputable, garage and any parts used......oil, filters, fluids ect must be the equivilent spec to fiats own parts.
    best to use genuine parts anyway then no come back at all.

    same applies to chassis warrenty.....ANY fiat main dealer can do warrenty repairs, if they want to is another matter.

    im sure Geo can confirm this :thumb:

    servicing

    I live in Cropwell Butler just outside Nottingham and have used BJ Leisure at Shelford for years with complete satisfaction for any work on my venerable Burstner. While he keeps me going I will stick with what I've got,it suites us. Give Pat a ring on 01159332645 / 07815906428. You will not be disapointed.
    Just a very happy and satisfied customer

    i went through the same process .last month as our van is one year old .
    went to fiat in end it cost more but with all the problems with these cabs .
    i had the water ingress sorted at same time and other warantee jobs carried out as-well
    i don't like there cost but they do a good job and you do get a loan car for free if you want one .

    No....dont panic, it the same service as your engine service.

    'chassis' is just a term used for the fiat part of your van:thumb: same as 'mechanical'
