    Did the wind shield had any smears or something else which needed a polish? Couldnt a simple wind shield wash helped?

    They charged 950+taxes. Comes to around 1050.

    Girish, it has full of smears and scratches. I did use sonax but did not help. Night driving was becoming a pain.

    Cheetah visited Service Camp today! Happy to identify a reason for critical issue Lower link rod bush torn, resulted in tak tak sound (initially I thought I need to replace the shocks). Good Job Pandit!!

    Then the famous thing happened :)
    A technician came to replace the number plate bulb, opened the door, turned the Key to MAR and THUD closed the door, within few seconds CLICK autocop auto locked the car!!

    Since I had to rush to office called Rahul and explained told him what happened. Immediately he sent the crew and within 5mins all are in action. They took 20mins to unlock it. Kudos to Imbrahim Chaha, he is master in it :)

    Also I requested to open a job card today to avail the service camp discounts. And Suhas Patil happily agreed! I'll be droping the Palio on monday to get the fixes done.
    They also gave me a windscreen washer for free :)

    Time in : 9:30am
    Time out : 10:45am

    As always PANDIT Auto did a wonderful job!

    Good to see that Channa.

    I think you should not post pics and your experience to open the locked car by jugad on public forum.

    Kudos to the cheetah !!
    Looking forwards to this thread for updates as I am also a proud owner of a Palio Style 1.6 and am located in Pune.
    It seems that you have pretty good experience with the Pandit Auto for you cheetah. Nice to here that. Will try them next time i am due for my Palio's service.

    Thanks sarang, I am trying my best to keep this updated.

    Yes, fortunately cheetah is getting nice service there.

    You can try them next time. Just make sure you approach Babar(SA) not anybody else.

    Thanks for the tip Channa, It would be great if you could inbox me Babar's contact in case you have it.
    BTW.. I got my Palio serviced just a week back from Ravi Gaikwad in Pune (Most fiat guys know him). Nothing major just the regular service. Extra things carried out were Injector cleaning and throttle body cleaning. Also some RPM/engine tuning was done by Ravi. Quality of the work done was good, just that the professionalism that i expect was not there. As in, he kept the car with him for 7 days and did not complete some of the other things that i insisted him to do.
    Anyways, the car is not butter smooth after the service and i just checked the average using tank full - tank full method and it returned a unbelievable 12.2KMPL in Pune City conditions with 20% AC under sedate driving. What else you can expect from a 1.6 mill churning out 100 horses ?
