    yesterday completed my fourth paid service at Fiat hyson at 43725 km's. i am attaching the service bill . Kindly let me know your feedback on it.

    Total amount was 12328.

    the next service due is at 53725 km's ( 10000 service interval) or 1 year. Please see the attached service reminder on my car.

    The one service check under issue type should be zero as it is free camp from FIAT I guess,

    I got a similar kind of bill, when I went for free checkup.

    Why is the service check Amount 3089? I don't see any other additional work.

    Lock and Actuator - EW - So no labor should be charged.
    Looks like they already charged Rs 650 for Brake pads change (High labor :eek:).
    Engine guard levelling - Rs 400.
    For the regular service - Labor should be around Rs 1650. Where did Rs 3089 come from? :yuck:


    And as far as i know, there is no official notice from FIAT that Service should be done every 10000 Kms. The SC's seem to be doing whatever they want. I would ask them to show me the notice from FIAT if they give me all this BS.

    my engine shield was bent very bad and it was causing huge noise on the run, they have corrected it and gave me a 10% discount since it was checked and corrected on a service camp.

    I would take this workshop mistake with a pinch of salt. Either the service advisor is not aware of the Fiat's service interval or must be a typo error. If not then bring it to Fiat India's notice immediately so that this malpractice can be stopped.

    If it was official, it would be on there website, FB page, at the workshop. Since its not, then I would say its unofficial and illegal too. Fiat has been banking on longer service intervals as an USP for their product's sale, why would they jeopardise it?

    ^Agree with Girish, esp. and particularly when the 60k service is something people don't necessarily feel good about looking at the bills that come along with it. :) ;)
