    change of tyres

    went for 45k service ,got suspension GC kit fitted,done routinee maintenence,rear left window coil replaced,changed stock tyres with Yokohama avs db v550,in all spend Rs.90,000/- for doing 45,000 kms so about Rs.2/km on just maintenence with out fuel!! thought this was a bit expensive ? guys tell me if this is what it is with dsl cars.in petrol the rough thumb rule was the number of kms done is the no.paise per km for example if you have done 40 k kms then approx cost of maint is about 65 paisae per km. quite happy with the tyres .after the GC upgrade i noticed a slight body roll but the handling was just as good and to my great relief i could now drive my linea like an ambassodor,go anywhere,climb any pit just does not scrape your under chasis.After RDC fiat the service experiance is much better,but i feel the spares are still expensive.all said and done its tsill great to drive this car and once you hit the road you just dont want to come back!

    PS- also changed my battery to amron paid 4.8k after xchange with old one,yokohama tyres Rs.5.5k each all inclusive from Radial trading centre north usman road.Great guy Mr.Jawa Kannan you can call him on 9444168982.gave me wheel alignment,balancing free and was a pleasent experience unlike whites road where everybody is treated like a driver!!

    Now, you spent around 40 K out of the 90 K on things that are directly irrelevant to the Diesel engine that too after 45000 Kms. How does that make maintaining a diesel expensive?

    Rear left window coil should be covered under warranty :confused: if your car has extended warranty. How old is it?

    And the title of the thread does not make any sense to me.

    Even I am confued whether the thread wanted to focus on the maintenance of Diesel cars or the tyres change.

    Anyways what was the stock tyres? Appollo Acceleres or Good year? Any particular reason for changing battery? Had it gone bust?

    I guess the OP post was not structured to understand the thread title.

    Getting GC done is optional and not under maintenance and same goes with tyres.GC kit -Rs 15000, coil - Rs2000, tyres - Rs22000, service- Rs7000 pluys battery Rs 4000 thus total Rs 40000 roughly .If u can elaborate how did u spend Rs 90000 on 45K service it can be of great help.

    I think the OP is saying that 90,000 is the total spent on the car in a total span of 45,000 km's . Unless we see a complete breakup of the costs, it means nothing really.

    3rd service @ 28500Kms - 5200 Rs

    Thanks for sharing the discussion, My Punto is still in the service center for last 2 months, they have changed booster, new brake pipes with new specs, still the issue is not resolved. Now they are going to reinstall the ECU. Lets hope for the best. I will be in touch.
