    Hi ramesh... thanks for your reply. I have seen in one of the thread in TFI saying maintenance for diesel engine is somewhere approx 1.0 Rs/km. that's the reason i want to make sure.

    Also do you need to service every year or 15000 kms is fine?? bcoz for me 15000 may reach every 1.5 years.. can you clarify me??

    For my Linea regular service with no spare changed had always cost 10 k plus in Chennai and only at Pondicherry the service cost was around 8k.
    The scheduled service is once in one and a half year or 15k kms, which ever is earlier.

    Service costs are debatable. The service costs of Linea should be par with Punto . I have spent only Rs 32k till now that includes
    1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th service and couple of times replacement of brakepad at 24500 kms & 52000 Kms.
    Now car ODO is at 73750 Kms.

    Hi shashank can you put a break up of the service bill that you did very recently.. will be very helpful to all of us.

    Also it will help people in saving the penny on service part. thanks

    Hi

    On an average for any vehicle petrol or diesel in same segment / price range, It would eventually be an average of 1 rupee per km or even more

    Once you would have touched 50-60 K kms , it would be 4-5 / 4-5 year or services till your warranty

    It will include all the paid services done along with consumables & parts as per schedule and assuming some accidental repair or tyres

    Diesel Car Maintenance is 20-25 % costly compared to Petrol ones and you save that part of your money with your extended usage and 20-25% Fuel Consumption which is better for Diesel ones

    Service bill break up is easy.
    They will charge Rs.200 separately for each and everything like filling coolant, wiper washer fluid, oil, etc.
    Too heavy a service cost for not so premium car.

    100% wrong , either its part of service or for any other task its half hour or full hour labor charges

    As per my 6 yrs of owning cars Fiat labor charges are cheaper than Maruti in Delhi

    I too agree that fiat service cost is cheaper than that of Maruthi even from my experience, but certainly higher than that of a Toyota Etios
