Explained: What does “Full Service History” mean?

If you’ve ever bought a used car, you’ve probably heard the term 'full service history' (FSH). But what does it actually mean? And is it worth paying extra for?
 

The Vauxhall Insignia is now on sale with a 200hp engine, becoming the top power option for those who do not want the car with all-wheel-drive.

Available in both Grand Sport hatch and Sports Tourer estate versions, the new 1.6-litre sits just below the 2.0-litre 210hp engine – which is only offered with all-wheel drive and is the most potent Insignia option.

The new four-cylinder direct injection turbo unit produces its peak power at 5,500rpm and also offers a 280Nm torque figure, on tap from 1650 to 4500rpm.

In Grand Sport form, the new 1.6-litre Insignia will complete a 0-62mph sprint in 7.2 seconds and go on to 146mph. Provisional efficiency figures are quoted at combined cycle fuel economy of 44.8mpg and CO2 emissions of 146g/km – these to the new Euro 6d-Temp ‘real world’ emissions standards.

   

Vauxhall supplies the 1.6-litre model with a close-coupled Gasoline Particulate Filter, which more effectively oxidises particles and helps to improve its emissions standards.

Dealers are taking orders for the new Insignia model now, prices starting from £25,610 for the Insignia Grand Sport version in SRi VX-Line Nav trim.

The latest Insignia went on sale in early 2017 in its hatch and estate variants, joined later by a ‘Country Tourer’ version with a extended ride height. Currently, alongside the new 200hp unit, there are six engine choices: a 1.5-litre turbo petrol unit with either 140 or 165hp, the range-topping 2.0-litre with 210hp, and diesels with 110, 136 or 170hp.
