I am just coming up to 12.5K miles and its time for a service! I have heard
that Haynes are bringing out a manual in autumn, but in the mean time, any
tips or guidance from you experts out there? I have always done my own
maintenance and was surprised to find that there was no book, apart from
what Citroen give you. It's going very well by the way. Much better
acceleration than I expected!
Thanks everyone for the comments.
Yes, I am going to service it myself. I bought it October 2004. I have
always serviced my own cars and they last well towards 200k miles before I
sell or pass on to the family. I put this down to changing the oil on time,
changing the coolant, etc. Relying on the MOT to tell me when suspension
components need changing, etc. Concerning the warranty, I suppose that the
car would need to be "fit for purpose" during the first year or so and
therefore covered by consumer legislation. I see myself as very competent,
but whether I could convince a Court of that is another question. Does the
EU legislation allow for, say, a mechanic to service his own car at home and
still maintain the warrantee? Provided that he can show that he has
properly serviced the car of course!
gurgled happily, sounding much like they were
