    Hi All,

    I was communicated that the service intervals for Fiat vehicles in south has been reduced to 10K kms or 6 Months . Has any other members got such communication ? What could be the rationale behind such decision ?

    Br,

    Prabosh, did you get this communication through FASS or from Fiat Customer Service?

    Sometime back also this kind of news was floated, and found to be untrue. I think it was from RDC Motors, Chennai.
    Don't go by some Service Adviser,s words. If he/she can show you any communication from FIat, let us also know.

    Having said that, changing engine oil at 10K kms, is a good idea.

    Communicated by who and how ? I don't see why vehicles in south should have a different service interval from those in north, east and west.

    The communication is wrong.

    Hmm. How does a vehicle's geography changes its service interval ?

    The service interval is there in the owner handbook & unless FIAL contacts you, the handbook's interval stands.

    It might be that the service centre is trying to get some extra money at your cost.

    This was communicated by SA FASS( Hyson Fiat, Kochi, Kerala). They have mentioned the same on the bill(next service due date)

    I googled and found this link..

    http://www.myfiatworld.in/showthrea...ce-Schedule-for-MJD-s-of-Fiat-Linea-and-Punto

    I have written to service[dot]india[at]fiat[dot]com to officially confirm the same. Let us see any reply comes !

    Ok, please share the response you get from FIAT. That will clear the confusion.
    Could you post Hyson's bill where the date is mentioned? Date should be 1 year from current service.

    Guys,
    Sorry for the delay. Was busy with Onam holidays.

    Before going for vacation I took my vehicle to Hyson for a checkup. I asked SA to show the communication from FIAT regarding service interval change. He said no official communication , but it is a recommendation from FIAT.

    If MJD has 35K service interval in europe and FIAT in India recommends 15K( harsh conditions already factored in !!) the communication from FASS seems to be for making some quick money.


    Bill with next service due date attached. It is 6 months.

    Anyway thanks all for clearing my doubts. I will be giving it for service in next March, but would be changing engine oil after crossing 10K
