    Thanks for the detailed report. Indeed looks promising. Though i never had bad experience from Prerana till today . As all the three free services are done from Prerana. Hope Surendra is going to be with Vecto.

    One small question. I wanted to get painted the center music player panel. does all the painting jobs are up and running or do we need to wait ??

    Krishna, Thanks for the report!

    This is quite impressing :clap Hope they maintain it. Such finer aspects brings a smile on customer's face and would remain loyal.

    Interestingly, I had seen these points on the back side of the post-service delivery check list(a yellow slip) at Concorde motors. But they never bothered to give this check list to customer while asking feedback. Checklist included items like cleanliness of the car after service, seat position, steering position etc. among many others.

    Changing the seat position and angle was problem for me because an incorrect posture used to give me back pain, and I always had it adjusted in a particular way.
    It is good to know that Vecto is taking care of these finer details

    But I wonder how it is possible to note the seat position? In a quantifiable way?

    highjacking your thread, krishna!
    No wonder, they always gave the car back with the seat position messed up. My next one week would be for trying different seat positions, until I get the correct one.

    I put the same question to the SA. What he mentioned was quite interesting. They are noting the notches both horizontal and vertical along with the no of strokes the current position is set in on the Job card. Once this is done, it should be quite easy to put it back in the same position.

    Mileage update:

    40th Refill - 223 kms - 17.42 liters - 12.8 kmpl - (MID Mileage - 13.1 kmpl)average speed - 20 kmph.

    Yesterday a funny thing happened. I had kept a box with a couple of thick metal plates similar to the brake pads and completely forgotten about it. While driving back home from office, every time I went over the hump a weird metal sound was giving company. I initially thought the rear suspension is busted and this weekend will need to visit the FIAT service center. Today morning I was checking the boot and this damn box was sitting behind the sub-woofer box. Took the box out and observed the drive all the way to office, now there is no metal sound when I go over potholes or humps. PHEW!
