    @mindspin: Though manufactures claim 15K service interval, many people feel that changing engine oil at about 10K is better. I was sticking to the manufacture schedule for 2 years for my Vista, but now since the car is 2 year old, we are going for a 10K interval for oil change.

    Engine oil change can be done as a DIY, but safe disposing of huge quantity of oil is a big concern.

    Thanks Guys ! I guess it does makes sense to change the engine oil before 15 k considering the Indian conditions as mentioned by Italia-Linea! I think I will change mine at around 8 or 9 K! Question I have :

    1) how much will the Oil Change cost if done at TASS ?
    2) Which Engine Oil do you recommend ? Should i buy it from outside or just get it at the showroom?

    Thanks Again

    Sorry for this repost , One thing I for got to mention : Do we need to do a oil filter change too with the oil change?

    I do not remember off hand how much it costs for an Oil change since I have only read about the costs but have not done it yet.

    If you plan to buy your own oil, check with your SA first. I do not think many service centers will be really happy if we start bringing our own oil, but if you have a friendly SA, this should not be a problem.

  6. Yes. Oil filter will be changed most of the times if i am not wrong.
    It will be less than 500rs.

    I am not sure about this but during a casual chit-chat with a service personnel in Prerana motors in Kudulu gate, i remember him saying around 6k for oil change. :shock: is it so?

    Though i have seen that many times the oil change is accompanied by oil filer change, I am not 100% sure you need to change oil filer every time you change oil. Batter ask the experts :)
