I'd be taking it up officially with Motorpoint and the finance company, assuming it is on finance. If the car came to you with the oil life on 100% you'd have every right to assume it had been serviced I would've thought.

Are you with onstar? as this thread below is saying they can get the information, 3rd post. Your car at the time motorpoint owned it may have still had onstar and they may have logged it.

Hi

Surely they can create you a new account and remove the previous owner from the vehicle without disclosing any details to you. If not then anyone buying a second hand Vauxhall with OnStar will never be able to use it which is stupid.

Sounds like you've been down that road then.

So once a previous owner has had onstar on a car the next owner can't have it, that can't be the case, surely.

What length of guarantee are you going to get with the repaired engine?

How do I get started and use OnStar?
When you purchase an OnStar equipped vehicle, you need to register and activate OnStar. You will receive an email from Vauxhall - simply click on the link to complete the activation process. If you purchased a previously owned OnStar equipped vehicle, just press the service button to speak to an OnStar Advisor to set up your OnStar account. If you have any questions, press the service button to speak to an OnStar Advisor.

I suppose it's possible that as a second owner when you get Onstar set up it might only give you the info since you've owned the car, but I'd say it's still worth looking at.
