    Please use this thread to discuss the maintenance cost of non fiat cars.
    This can be the cost of your second car which is non fiat or it can be an second hand information from your relative or friends or it can be a link to some information on other forums where such data is maintained. The purpose is for us to know where our Fiat stands in terms of maintenance coast.

    I just asked my colleague who own a POLO 1.2 Petrol and he told his 2nd service(one year) cost was 8.5K. I will work out the total maintenance cost for my alto and will post it here.

    Maintenance cost of my Alto LXI2005-2012
    Total years used : 7 years
    Total KMS : 40.5K

    Actual usage by me: 40K-8K = 32K

    Total amount paid for all maintenance at service station: 56.5K INR (All service/running repair done at dealership service station)
    Alignment and Balancing done at :MRF Tyredrome chennai/Goa : I don't have the details now. Minimum amount will be 5*500=2500
    4 tyres changed cost was 9K(MRF).

    Total cost = 68000 INR

    Maintenance cost = 1.68 rupees/km OR 9714/year

    For calculation I have used total kms on ODO(40.5 K) instead of 32K which was actually used by me since I was a second owner. But this will not change the figure since when I received the car it had already used 2 free service which for alto at that time was negligible.
