    Terms and conditions will be in your documents
    Rule of thumb
    within 1 Month or 500 Miles of due date and mileage
    If you over shoot stipulated times and milage you might as well tear up your warrany:Doh:

    Hi you will have a time limit. It will say how long in your handbook. Mine is with the explorer group and they allow 60 days. They will penalise you if miss it. My problem with this is that they call it a service but they don't service anything they just check it, so if it goes wrong at a later date they may not cover it fully under the warranty but it's not like an engine service where there is some maintaince involved it is just a check.

    both,if i brought it second hand from a dealer and have had it a year is that the point that i have to get it checked, even though it was not first brought by the previous owner on that date but from new six months earlier

    The mind boggles............

    In theory the services should have been done when the van was 12 months old but if your dealer did a mech and hab service at six months.......................

    If he did not, then your six months out of date.

    i would asume that they would have do an habitation check around the same time as that and just before they sold it to me wiouldn't they
    looks like i have got 90 days before and 60 days after to get this done and i have the fiat part booked in next saturday and the hab check by cls 17th april so i should be ok but it is worth others checking that these are done when you buy one especially if you are new to it all
    thanks for your help
