    I bought a 2010 Model Punto Multijet on Dec,2012. The car had completed 10k on Odo. The owner partially used and serviced this car. He had done 1st Service, skipped 2nd service and 3rd Service at 7000k (in 2011 year end).

    I believe fiat is programmed with Service reminder. Due to low usage, I wont receive any service reminder alert (correct me if I am wrong). Now ODO is 12,780 and I would like to give this car for Service (for my satisfaction).

    Kindly suggest what are the things need to be serviced/changed during service.

    I did the below outside ASS.

    1. Re-filled A/c gas.
    2. Wheel alignment and Tyre rotation.

    Below are my doubts. I am confused which one need to be opt (with cost effective).

    1. Should I give service to ASS ? If yes, what are the things needs to be informed to service person.
    2. What is the approx. budget if ASS do basic service (oil change/air filter / fuel filter).
    3. Can I change engine oil/oil filter / air filter from outside ASS ?

    Thanks.

    I beleive that vehicle is still in warrenty and I am not sure why the previous owner skipped the 2nd service. this will void the warrenty of the car.

    Just give it to service and ask them to do the 15000 kms service ( 2nd service). I would suggest you to stick with ASS but if you feel to do it outside you can always do.

    Engine oil, oil flter, fuel filter and air filter needs to replaced in every service(1 year or 15,000 kms) and Coolant, brake fluid, gear oil, power steering oil every 2 years (It might be time to change them if previous owner didn't changed them)

    If you want to get work done outside you can as your warranty is most probably void if service were skipped by previous owner. You would save mostly on labor charges only.

    @dhinakaranselvaraj , My sincere advice to you would be to do the service at the TASC instead of scouting around to procure the spares from here and there. If they are not doing the warranty, so what ? The car is still very young and in the wrong hands it will get spoilt. You are lucky to have got such a car with so less Kms on the ODO. The parts that would go into your car will be only what the FIATs require. So give it a thought again.

    Another point is once you service your car at TASC , the car gets an entry into their system again and it can always be argued that the owner was out of country...etc and maybe you can win back the extended warranty. Missing service is not a crime. It is only a technical flaw.
