I would take it and get it a full service, the full whack. Do you know if it has had it's belts done and the water pump? Get them to check that and if that hasn't been done get it all done as a matter of urgency.

Well it passed its MOT in December so I just presumed an interim service would do
When I got the car I got the little blue folder with the books in, what I got was "owners handbook"
"Sound system"
"fiat service"
And "blue and me"
But in non of these books is a service stamp

Ouch, buying a car with no service history, but you pays your money you takes your chance I guess. How old is it/mileage?

Re: Service

Ok, so that's coming up for 5 years I'd get it all done now. My water pump was leaking when I got it changed at 4 years!

Re: Service

There's nothing wrong with the car (of what I can see) ill probably get a full device done when I get paid then
Do you think it's worth ringing the garage where I bought the car to see if they have the device history book ?

Yes! Was it a used car dealer or a chain i.e Arnie Clark? If it is the latter they can contact the dealership/garage where it was originally sold and see if there is any record of it's servicing.

If it is a used car dealer...then not much luck.

Re: Service

Yeah I was a local used dealership, plus I got it about 2 month ago now so I'll not bother.

But honestly thanks for your help everyone, I've never had a car serviced or took one to a garage much so I didn't know.

Re: Service

As said Jack, I'm happy to have a look at it. I've done oil, filters, brakes and a few other jobs on a Grande before. It's not that far from Donny to here
