Is cambelt change part of the service?
I have recently purchased a 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara 1.9 DDIS circa 44k on the clock from a non Suzuki Dealer. Prior to handover they carried out a service and stamped the 45k Service in the book. I have subsequently discovered that the 45k Service should have included a cambelt change etc. Do I have any recourse with the dealer to carry out the belt change, or is it just my fault for not noticing prior to purchase and am now going to have to pay out for belt change having only put 1000 miles on the car since purchase?
A cambelt change is never part of a service. It is always additional to the service. Worth arguing with the dealer, but unless he obliges I don't think you'll get very far. This is a Renault engine so the job can be done by anyone familiar with Renaults.
