    today gave my punto for 45000 kms service quoted around 10k in hyson including brake pad replacement .

    26 k is on a higher side i believe....because of Timing change replacement but timing chain is under warranty right.

    Not for 60K kms service, it is regular replacement item.

    Hmm actually these are called Alternator belts, I think. But not sure.
    And Steering belt also could be part of these.

    Those are Power steering belt and Alternator belts.

    Everything listed in the Original post is correct for 60K service and it will not cost 26K unless they end up changing anything else (Brake pads etc) along with these.

    For the ones listed, i believe it would cost about 20K including labor, could be slightly less.
