New to this! Any views on service charges, is it recommended to stick with a VW dealership.

Depends how old your vehicle is and if you plan to sell in the future . Many buyers look for a Full Service History by VW so you might take a hit on resale value.New to this! Any views on service charges, is it recommended to stick with a VW dealership.
I don’t think there is anything that specific to the VW service. maybe the Pollen filter but I think The ordinary van has that. If it was coming up to 3 years I would check everything that was subject to the 3 year warranty. An early MOT will pick up most problems. We had problems with our leisure batteries which were replaced on the last day of the warranty also the rear door struts that weren’t holding the door up..You should know your van pretty well after 3 years so make a list of suspect things as I imagine it’s not easy to make a claim if out of warranty.My Cali ocean is nearly three years old, it’s never been serviced at a VW California centre, always at our local VW van centre is there any specific ocean related service items which should have been or require checking before it’s out of the 3 year warranty?
Thanks in advance

The deal at xmas time gave a 20% discount on the usual service plan price for a 2 service plan. So 1 major and 1 minor service costs covered.I decided to keep with vw for ease and take it back to the garage I bought from. I took out a service plan with vw for ours. Just before Xmas they did a deal which was 10% off I think and you pay monthly to cover the service costs.
Probably not a lot cheaper, but as we plan to keep the van long term
it spreads the cost at least! Was helpful this year as knew that the cambelt change was needed as well so at least the service cost was covered.
