    My avvy mjd is now 2 years old,but has covered only 11234kms. When I approached a fiat service station at trivandrum(continental fiat),they are claiming that the service costs about 9500 rupees. I find it not justifiable as the car barely covered 11000 kms, please be kind enough to provide me with a suitable opinion

    9500 bugs is too much for normal servicing. Ask them to provide detailed estimate of what parts are they going to replace.

    Also your avvy should be underwarranty so any defects should be covered.

    Can you please give the break up of all the work that is being done on your Avvy?

    It might reach this figure with WA+WB and new brake pads but then it sounds implausible.

    @Ekalavya Thats the normal cost for servicing . In Mumbai its 10,143.

    Cost are as follows
    Engine oil -2220
    Filters -3279 ( Oil filter + air filter + cabin filter + Fuel filter)
    Windshield liquid -76
    Consumables -250
    Wheel Weights -400

    Labour for all job is 3422 which includes brake cleaning , egr clean and wheel Balancing.

    These cost you cannot neglect it . as per my experience if you want to service outside the prices are as follows

    All Filters 2200
    Engine Oil -2000
    Wheel balancing -750

    Labour 500-2000

    In this above case many of them dont clean EGR but as you have clocked 11k only dont require to clean the egr.

    U just need to change oil and oil filter....u can change air filter (although intervals are 15000 kms for warranty), even diesel filter the change interval is 15000 kms (for warranty).Don't let them touch the alignment (only if u feel the steering out etc).EGR cleaing etc at 11000 kms big "NO",brake cleaning not required. Nothing else is required.Tel them to charge the labour for the parts or service performed.

    Remember to adhere to the time and kms for all oil change, coolant, transmission oil,air filter, fuel filter etc to keep the warranty and Extended Warranty alive.

    Hi Guys,
    I have covered 6500kms so far in my punto Evo Dynamic purchased last Year 2016 April , So now its time for the 2nd free service ie., Either 15000 kms or 1 year service

    What and all I need to change?

    Engine oil - Mandatory ?
    ( Oil filter + air filter + cabin filter + Fuel filter ) - Mandatory ?

    Wheel alignment and balancing done at 5000 Kms outside , not in FASS.

    @sudharson Thats it , tell in advance to the service center that you dont want wheel alignment. You approx price for 2nd service would be 5800 without alignment .
