    Hi,

    I gave my punto active (diesel) to service in true sai, there is no major replacements only the normal service with normal oil changes(Break oil, coolant oil .. etc ), break cleaning, standard checkup,water wash .

    Approximate estimate cost is 15000, is that normal cost or too much? Please share your thoughts.

    Too much IMO. I just did the 24 months service. Changed all filters and oil. Cost 5800/-. Check the split up. How much the break cleaning costs. And are they replacing any other part.

    FASS here has a habit to overestimate the amount, and then come up with a lesser bill.
    Here's my bill split up.
    Engine oil : 2490
    Oil filter : 432
    filtering element : 453
    Fuel filter : 1775
    Air filter : 232

    Ask for a detailed split up. And escalate it to fiat if anything suspicious.

    What is the split mate.

    INR 15k does seem steep, also why is the service due at 21k, it should either be at 15k or 30k.
    Is this the 2nd year service where the car clocked 21k.

    Cheers,
    Pradeep.

    @shanmugam - Every 2 years or 60,000 kms, all oils needs to be replaced and they have done that. And they have replaced wiper blades and not sure what they did with the last item (Rear RHS Balance Rod). I see a Labour charge of almost Rs. 1000 there. And you could have avoided the Wurth treatment to save another 1k. And not sure what exactly they do with Brake cleaning as well. With all oil change, the fair bill amount should be around Rs. 11,000.

    They have charged you for washing and diagnosis using examiner which are included in service charges. You should not have opted for ac cleaning if there was no foul smell from AC and brake cleaning too could have been avoided if there was no noise from brakes.

    Sorry to say, I think you blindly accepted what they were doing with your car, that's what all SC do is to make money.
