    Hi All...

    I gave my car for 3rd (free )service at exclusive fiat service centre kashyap motors okhla, phase III (delhi). I was told that 3rd service needs s lit to be done. Gear oil change, power steering oil change, oil filter change in addition to regular coolant and oil changes. Now they have given me an approx billing of around 8500 INR. Is this ok. Usually i exoect it to be around 5000 INR....is this a genuine billing or they trying to fleece me.....please pass on some info on this......gud day

    Your SA is right, check manual once.
    All oils need to be changed during 3rd (or 2 years) servicing.

    Generally all oils apart from regular engine oil,filters ( Power steering, Transmission, Coolant ) will be changed at 60k Service or 2 years whichever earlier. When did you bought your car ?
    If your car already crossed 2 years then Estimation is correct.

    I think the estimation is reasonable, all fluids will changed at 3rd service (2 yrs). I was in similar dilemma when TCRS quoted 8k but then got it done for sake of warranty/insurance.

    Hello All,
    I did my 3rd free servicing from Pandit Auto, Bavdhan Pune. The total bill is Rs. 12785. The cost escalated due to change in Brake Pads(Some Rs. 3290 is billed). For the rest he said it is as per the manual and they did not do anything extra. Wheel alignment and wheel balancing was also done at the cost of around 700.
    Not sure if I am happy or not. Even I thought that the bill will be around 5-6K.
    I am going to bangalore this 15th august and don't want to take any chances.

    Normally 60k Service would cost you around 9000 Rs with labor. In your case Brake pads + Wheel alignment are add on.. so ...12k is reasonable amount.
