I think 4 years is major. 3 years is just interim again.

This is the schedule. My next is my 4th, weighing up whether I have vauxhall do it or a chain garage like Halfords. As the Major changes all filters etc.

At 1 year - interim service
At 2 years - main service
At 3 years - interim service
At 4 years - major service

What happens in a 'major' service versus 'main'?

I noticed in my service book the garage ticks 'no' on most of the service items, should they tick 'yes', or do they just not change much?

On a major my understanding is. Spark plugs, cabin filter, air filter, fuel filter, brake fluid are all changed. All locks and catches are greased, battery terminals are greased.

They are the main differences I see, air filter may be done at a main too. Brake fluid is usually recommended every 2 years.

Can anyone tell the difference between Mr Clutch, Halfords and Vauxhall garage?

You can see what's included in an interim, main and major service here: https://www.vauxhall.co.uk/owners/maintenance-and-repair/servicing.html#_fixed-price-service

Expand each type of service on the "Select Work" page.

Hi

Not true. You can have it serviced anywhere and still keep the warranty provided they use genuine Vauxhall parts.
