    Those all say "over 3 years old". My Caddy was 1 year old and the first, interim service cost over £350 at Whitequay Reading. I shall have a look at Phoenix for the full service next January at those kind of prices.

    technically your car I bet is 3 years over, but it was unregistared.

    I hoping there's a Phoenix nearer me at them prices.

    I might phone a couple of local Saab Dealers and see if they have fixed pricing

    Re: UK Offical Cadillac Dealers/Servcing

    Mmm, yes, my first service was £344.29p with BM. I kind of forced myself into it though as my Caddy had to have the electrical problem rectified covered in another thread and I didn't want to make the return trip to Manchester within another six months.
    As for the age of the car, mine, a 2009 model, was at least 10 months old by the time I had bought it on my birthday last year. If you contact GM and quote the VIN number, they should tell you the exact day/date it rolled out of the plant in Sweden.

    and I imagine that it rolled off a earlier then you actually think !

    if you have a look on Wiki it says the BLS was made in Russia as well

    Re: UK Offical Cadillac Dealers/Servcing

    Well I am comfortable in knowing that my Caddy was built in Sweden. The VIN plate is the first giveaway. The first two letters YS tell me straight away it is Swedish. If you own a BLS with a VIN that starts with XS, XT, XV or XW, it was built in Russia - if any were in fact ever built there??? My own vehicle was built in the summer of 2008 (sold as a 2009 model!!) Therefore, as I am now aware, my 'new' BLS was actually almost 21 months old by the time I bought it. I would love to know where it had been in that time! The car had accrued 45 'delivery miles'. I know it wasn't driven from Exeter where it had it's PDI, to Truro where I bought it, because the distance from garage to garage is almost 90 miles, so it must have been transported. I am so very glad that I did not pay £24500 for it, because, in reality, it wasn't a new car anyway! Lesson to be learnt here by anyone considering buying a new car. IMHO, if you go to a dealership, check out the VIN of the 'new' car you are buying. If it is more than six months old, I would seriously haggle for a big discount. A car sat on tarmac in a very large car park for over 12 months in my opinion, is no longer a new car. My Chrysler Neon (which I still have) was built in Belvedere in the USA and was only six months old from the time it rolled out of the plant in the US to when it was sold in the UK.

    Re: UK Offical Cadillac Dealers/Servcing

    Hi all,

    I had my BLS serviced yesterday, a year to the day from my first one. I took it to Milton Keynes, a 90 mile journey each way for me, but so much less hassle road wise than going anywhere else within the official Cadillac approved network. My journey down the M1 (mostly in 6th gear on cruise control) averaged 56 mpg at 60 mph, yes I was driving like an old geezer! but as of this morning, following a journey to a relative in Oxfordshire straight after the service, I have done 300 miles so far on less than half a tank of diesel, so I'm pretty chuffed. To have a 1.9 TiD that can knock out almost as much mpg as a tiny modern 1.2 litre petrol unit, imho, is fantastic.

    As for the service, well I had only done 9600 miles since my last one and this time round, my fuel filter was changed along with a few other bits and pieces and of course nice clean fresh oil. The service team were excellent and the job was completed in just under two hours. The team at Milton Keynes were friendly and courteous and I really didn't mind the wait whilst they did the work. I would go back to them again. The cost of the service was spot on too, which justified my decision to go there this time. And of course, I got that all important Cadillac stamp in the Service Log.

    270 quid, which when I compare the service sheets from this year and last, it was good value. The cost might be subjective to some I know, but they have used genuine GM parts and they have the tech II support for Cadillac which unfortunately most independents and other GM garages, in all likelihood, won't have. All in all, I'm happy.

    Re: UK Offical Cadillac Dealers/Servcing

    It was (as far as I am aware) an intermediate service, which is the same as I had last year but this year at a lower cost. It will be due a main service next time, so I am fully prepared for the additional expense. The service indicator has in fact been set to reflect MAIN for its next service.

    For those UK Cadillac owners who live in the South Central/South East of England, the Whitequay Group has closed its sites. See link:
