    Hi Roger,

    You don't have to go to a Fiat garage, you can use any VAT registered workshop facility without impairing the warranty, subject to using recomended lubricants and parts

    For arguements sake you can even come to us if you wish.

    You should have had a Fiat handbook and all the dealerships are in there, or try the Fiat site HERE

    fiat servicing

    Hi,
    Just look up for a commercial vehicle garage in your yellow pages. They will service your Fiat at probably half the price of a motorhome dealer. I use one in Fareham and he does all the garage jobs at a really good price Ie Full 20000mile service £145+vat

    rodger when i asked this question .i was told the same as you .
    can use any garage ect or the dealer said wile having the habitation check
    have the oil first service done at same time.
    then some one said think about this if you have a judder problem keep taking van to fiat till they sort out all the judders ,
    they will then not be able to blame any one else
    if you pay that little bit extra and go to fiat .

    servicing

    as long as the garage you use pays v a t the warranty will be intact, no matter who services your van fiat will pay for any rememedial work under guarantee.
    habitation is a bit different ( it shouldn't be) as some supplying motorhome dealers insist you have this done by them.

    live long and prosper :Smile::BigGrin::Rofl1:

    Hi Johns Cross,

    I take your point but I have to work off the quotes given to me by Dealers in my area. I would be quite happy to come to you if you would include the cost of my trip from Southampton in the £140 +vat.

    Keep em waxed.............. Ned
