    I believe your car is still under extended warranty. If so, glow plug is covered under warranty. You shouldn't have paid for this.

    no wonder we have a fixed notion of selling cars after 5 years.
    if the bill keeps escalating like this that too for labour costs who would want it?
    wonder if RTI can be put to use here to actually know what is going on
    The general tendency is not to look at cost/km but cost/service you see ;-)

    No way. RTI is applicable for government departments/undertakings/agencies and not for private firms. All the political parties [secular, pseudo secular, communal, communists, right wing, left wing, regional, included] are unanimous in one issue, i.e., political parties should be exempted from RTI! High cost of servicing is inevitable for low-volume brands. We have to live with it. :(

    I came across this page from Autocar magazine, about the cost of various frequently used spares and other misc.

    Which issue of Autocar is this ? The cost of bumpers , wipers etc for the Punto diesel are more than what's quoted in the magazine.

    Me thinks the details are pretty precise. The bumper and wiper blade prices are definitely correct and so are many others.
