Cleevely Electric Vehicles near me in Cheltenham work on all types of EVs (mainly Leafs, I3s, Outlanders and Teslas) and they have said they'd be more than happy to service my Ampera if I didn't feel like the drive to Wantage. They are familiar with the Ampera and did do some brakes maintenance for me a couple of months ago without any problems.... I haven't yet found an independent that will touch them and to be honest, I don't ever expect to.
Thanks for the advice, what I'm getting is it may be best to check with Bellingers.It depends on the dealer. Getting an definitive answer from Vxhl can be tricky. Have all the services been carried out by approved Ampera dealerships and are they within 6 weeks of the previous one? If not, all might not be lost but it might depend on the dealership. One of my services is a couple of months out but Bellingers service manager told me that would not affect the warranty (as there are no serviceable parts on the HV system - with the possible exception of the HV coolant change at 5 years- has yours had that done yet?) and he claimed he was the one who would decide.
I hope I never have to find out what would actually happen if I had a claim, but I think Bellingers would be the best bet compared to a lot of the other dealers.
From reading these forums, that is the conclusion I'm reaching! I can see it would be easy for someone to be put off buying one of these cars (poor headlights, steering lock issue, 12v battery weirdness, servicing requirements.......) Plenty of "nuances".It's a bit stroppy
