    I have given my car for 3rd service today. They will start working on it tomorrow.

    Below is the estimate
    ENGine oil 2600
    Oil filter 450
    Ac filter 200
    Air filter 450
    Fuel Filter2100
    Consumbales 180
    Gear oil 1150
    Brake oil 300
    Coolant 1000
    p/s oil 600

    Since it's not been 2 years since the purchase of the car I asked them not to change gear oil,brake oil,coolant and P/S oil which will save 3050 now. But the SA is insisting that in the new manual (2014 manual) it's been recommended to change these once the car hits 30k kms irrespective of the time. (even if the car is not 24 months old)

    Please let me know if the SA is well informed and what should I do.


    Also, I was told that I will be billed only for 3.2 litres of engine oil. Will 3.2 litres cost 2600rs?

    I would suggest go by the rule-book to avoid any warranty issues that may (if) creep up later.

    The engine oil wil cost around 2200 rupees, the additional might be for the labour charges.

    As per the 2012 manual and the posts here gear oil,break oil, coolant and power steering oil have to be changed only after 2 years or before 2 years if the car hits 60k. The SA says you have to change it after 30k as per the new manual. Someone who has the new manual please help. But even the latest bills uploaded by members shows these weren't changed.

    Is 2200 the amount for 3.2 litres or 4 litres. I don't think they charge 400 for labour. Either they are billing for 4 litres or SA gave a wrong estimate.

    Per 2014 manual (pre-facelift) -- July 2013 print -- Page 11 in warranty section:

    Brake/Clutch Fluid/Transmission Oil/Coolant : 60k/24months whichever is earlier
    Power Steering Oil: Every 24 months (nothing mentioned about mileage)

    Ask the SA to show you the manual where it says otherwise.

    The actual amount was Rs 2127/- and is for 3.2 litres only and not 4 ltrs. I confirmed the same by ensuring the oil was changed in my presence.

    BTW, which FASS have you left your car for service?

    I wouldn't worry about what is written in 2014 manual car if I am not owning one. I would definitely go by what is written in my car's manual. If there is an amendment, Fiat would have issued a Service advisory like they did for the Timing chain replacement.
