    Stupid koshun: My first service is around the corner - I brought the car on May 27th, so on nov 27th, the car will reach 6 month mark. I will not be around here during that time, so how many grace days I have to get the service done? I plan to leave to Kerala on 24th and will be back most probably by 29th or 30th.

    Can I wait till December to get the car serviced, or is it better if I get it serviced by mid November itself?

    Always better to get it done before the date, just to avoid any potential warranty issues later on.

    That said, our Linea is a full MONTH (31 March purchase) overdue for its first service (checkup). The dealer never called to remind, and we also forgot. The car is yet to go for its first service, but has gotten the rear axle replaced already. There is a bit of flexibility in the service + warranty schedule i would assume.

    First servicing is nothing but some check-ups. Shouldn't take more than couple of hours. I suggest get it done in NOv itself.

    just back from Prerana, kudlu gate - got the first service done. There was no issues, so there was nothing much to check. The SA was Surendra, and this time also, it was nice dealing with him.
    When I got the car, there was a minor scratch on the front right door - I showed them that and they guys who does the 3M care fixed it using some rubbing compound from 3M. In retrospect, I think I should have done it myself.

    The car was very dirty inside and it was cleaned thoroughly before handing it over to me - overall, a pretty satisfying first service.

    The bill came to 100 INR, for windscreen washer and other top ups.

    Well, not much to update here and that is why mainly this thread is sleeping. Adding few pics I took when we went out yesterday -the car was waxed 3 weeks back.
