    Thanks for all help buddy! I did exactly what you mentioned here. I had listed down all the stuff I wanted to get done and instructed the Service Engineer on what all things needs to be done and with extra care!!!

    Thanks for picking me from service center and dropping me at my home![/quote]

    You are welcome Buddy. I had a nice time driving my friends Ritz for a change and combined it with catching up with you was a good start to the weekend :)

    All the best with your car mate :)

    Re: What do I feel after 20000 kms? And now After 45000 KMs.

    Came back along with my car at around 6 pm (26th Mar) from the service center. The car was behaving very well, drive was smooth and I was happy. Before taking the delivery after the service, the service engineer Mr. Suryavanshi explained the work done on my car along with my list which I mentioned him while giving the car for the service. Regarding the suspension they reported the stud are doing fine and need not to change it now. They however tighten the bolts and I could felt the difference while coming back to home.

    I'm pretty happy with the kind of job done!

    Things got changed and treated under 4th service:

    1. Engine Oil - 3.3 ltr[/*:m:19gdniex]
    2. Oil Filter [/*:m:19gdniex]
    3. Fuel Filter [/*:m:19gdniex]
    4. Air Filter [/*:m:19gdniex]
    5. Coolant - 5 ltr[/*:m:19gdniex]
    6. Gear Oil - 1.8 ltr[/*:m:19gdniex]
    7. Brake Oil -0.5 ltr[/*:m:19gdniex]
    8. Power Steering Oil - 0.9 ltr[/*:m:19gdniex]
    9. Elastic Pad (steering) - Under Warranty[/*:m:19gdniex]
    10. Brake Pad Set[/*:m:19gdniex]
    11. Alignment + Wheel Balancing[/*:m:19gdniex]

    Certainly my car is feeling fresh and so am I and we are ready to do thousands of mies together again!!! :)

    Attached is the bill and the total expense was around 14k.

    1. 5 litres of coolant?? i think coolant is mixed with distilled water with fixed ratio... how does 5 litre coolant go in?
    2. Polish paper ? other item consumable? - what is this? if they are using some spray, grease etc during service they shouldnt charge it.
    3. Front wheel alignment - Rs 450 - costlier than other manufacturers. 10 min labor required.
    4. Std check brake pad replacement Rs. 650- a total loot. 10 min job. just 2 bolts to be removed.
    5. Brake pad set - Rs.2399 - very costly
    7. 900 rs service labor should have included power steering oil top up and other small things. maruti and hyundai dont charge seperate labor for gear box oil , brake oil top up etc.

    6. Engine oil, air filter, transmission oil, oil filter, fuel filter - very reasonably charged
