    They handed over the balance oil in the can to me, there is no issue with that.
    But apart from the engine oil, I feel the cost of the filters also seem to be on the higher side.

    But how can I get a confirmation about the actual cost of the items ?

    but why did you changed this : "Diesel fuel filter with sensors : 2059.00 " so early just with 2500 KMS

    Hi Arryan,

    Please escalate issue to FIAT and confirm from them.
    Its not fair to charge almost double the amount. I remember in Hyderabad all dealers charge 580 to 600 Rs per litre.

    During my four services Engine oil Price range was always between 1800 & 2100 Rs.

    Regards,
    Shashank

    The engine oil change was not done at 2500KM, but at 11000Km actually.
    I know that Fiat recommends the engine oil change at 15000KM i.e. second service.
    But I personally feel that even the synthetic oil should be replaced at 10K max.
    However, I was waiting for the new dealership to become operational, so I waited for some more time.

    But the bigger question now is how can I confirm the present rates prescribed by Fiat ?


    From the forum I got the following information about the cost of the items :
    FIATOIL 5W40SYN D – Fiat DIESEL Engine Synthetic Oil 5W40 : Rs580/L without VAT
    0059063972 Oil Filter Diesel 1.3MJD : Rs380
    59116318 FUEL FILTER WITH SENSOR DSL : Rs.1,969.42
    The thread is of June, 2011 (by PaddleShifter) and I'm not sure if there was any revision of the costs after that.

    Engine Oil change at new excl. dealer - excess charged and refunded after complain

    My sincere thanks to Ganges, Shashank Reddy, Rohit Tunga for your valuable and timely advise on the issue of excess amount charged by Fiat dealership.
    I had to ultimately raise the matter to Fiat, and who else than Mr. Mangesh Kodalkar. Promptly got a reply that the regional manager / dealer will revert back to me.
    By evening I got a phone call from the Service Incharge at the dealership admitting the facts and they tried to give some lame excuses as usual.
    Today morning I got a mail from him containing the revised bill and a call from him for how to refund the balance amount.
    They have charged Engine Oil @ Rs. 650.00, however, there is no change in the cost of Oil Filter and Fuel Filter.

    The final bill (after revision) now stands as follows :-

    Selenia WR 5W40 - 4Ltr. @ 650 : 2600.00
    Diesel fuel filter with sensors : 2059.00
    Oil Filter : 411.00
    Total Spares : 5070.00
    Labour : 250.00
    Service Tax : 31.00
    Vat @ 14% : 710.00
    Grand Total : 6061.00
