    Hi,

    This is my official ownership thread and I hope to keep it live and updated.

    My car has done 32K Kms and I have given for 3rd service in KHT Fiat, Bangalore, which was supposed to be at 30K. My bad, Couldn't give it on time due to some personal emergency.
    Will this affect my warranty ? Also, I was told that the brake pads have worn off (though they indicated that it has had a good life) and needs replacement. The problem here is that the SA suspects that the discs might have also suffered damage and suggests me to replace the same. I personally inspected the disc and found that there was no wavy pattern the surface though I could feel a dip of 2-3 mm on the surface compared to the edges.
    I own a Vento where in we replaced the discs only at 60K Kms and it was fine till then. I wanted to have your valuable suggestion if I should go for a disc replacement immediately or post 45K Kms. Just to give you an idea of my usage, I drive close to 2K a month with half of it being highway runs at respectable speeds. Kindly let me know.
    I will also post the detailed invoice once I have it as I have been given an estimate of 15-16K INR, which I personally feel is very high. For my Vento which has done 1L Kms, the last service was done at 90K Kms and still I was charged 13K inclusive of Labor, Materials & Taxes.
    Thanks in advance for your valuable inputs !

    15-16K INR for 30K service sounds high. Mine, was about 7K odd. Do they count labour also?

    Please do not go for silencer coating and AC cleaning .. they are optional.

    I think you can go ahead with just the pads, if there was no severe bumps on the rotor. Also , the Rotor could be resurfaced once at lathe. But FASS would not do it.

    Thanks a lot Sujit !
    Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that they were optional. I believe they would have done it already and would have charged for it by now.
    Its better to keep us informed on the optional services provided to help us chose what we really need rather keeping us in the dark.
    Thankfully, I told him not to change the discs as the rotor seemed fine.
