Seriously why dont people do this?

Peugeot (well atleast mine does) offers a free VHC (vehicle health check) which will most of time cover all top and bottom of your vehicle including tyre pressures

Just decline the work at the end and you know if you have any issues with your car, but dont have to pay. Hell you will even get the free wash and vac (avoid the wash unless you enjoy aqua blades and chammios Shocked )

Its a win win for anyone Cool

Nearly every main dealer does, but they dont ideally advertise this because it is free work at the end of the day Laughing

Some cheeky people request an oil and filter change plus free VHC which is identical to a service (minus battery check/road test) and costs loads less

Free health checks are just a way of scaring people that don't know much about cars in to getting parted with there money for work that could be left until the next service visit.

£99 for a john grose value service

But tbh i would be cheeky and do it yourself. Get a free VHC then get the filter there and the oil at another supplier

I usually do my oil and filters myself Smile

My car is booked in at a garage I deal with tomorrow for new oil, filter, sparks and coolant flush and refill for not much more than that quote Smile I don't get much time to do these things myself recently
