On Monday I gave my sparky for 1 year/10000 KM Free service. Normally they will charge for the parts, during such services. Since I had CPCO I had paid ZERO amount even after there were some paid services/parts used this time.
While leaving for service I the following points were noted
- 10000 KM Service
- Brake Cleaning
- Low FE
- Hardness in steering wheel
- Crossed steering wheel[The spokes where not straight]
- Tyre Rotation
- Reverse Gear Not properly engaging
- Air filter intake hose was damaged
- Suspension problem
Apart from that I asked about faded plastic parts for replacement and painting in dash board to avoid reflection in windshield mirror. For that he said replacement will not be possible thru CPCO office. Forgot to ask for price. If it is going to be less I can change it. Or I should do some DIY for polishing. Lucas/Chayan can help me in this.
Regarding dash he said all spark owners came with same problem but nothing can be done. He said painting is not possible in that. But lot of our TAIians had did it. Surendar has done it very nicely not only in dash but all plastic parts inside the car. Sai also did nice job in dash painting. I dont know how to do with third party.
And I wanted to fix Remote locking, he said Autocop will directly come home and fix it.
He was supposed deliver the vehicle on next day that was on Tuesday. But on Tuesday he called me and told that because of Tyre Rotation he has to do the wheel aligning and said the vehicle will be delivered by next day that is on Wednesday. I agreed.
yesterday I had came to office by bike and thought of going home and then pick the car from service center. But in the evening he said I have to pick it up by 5.30 which will not be possible i go home and try picking it up. So I took my friend and collected the vehicle. I paid ZERO amount even then the bill was for around Rs.2.5k
i could not check all points which was noted in the job sheet since my friend was driving the vehicle back home. On the way back I want to fill petrol and I visited near by HP fuel filling station and I was about to get cheated and narrowly escaped and save Rs.300 odd rupees.

Today I called up Autocop and fixed for appointment on Saturday evening and he will come home and do the fittings. Its costs Rs. 3500/- with three year warranty [Do not know do I have to pay extra for fitting, forgot to ask]
I will do test run today and give feedback tomorrow.
