Truly inspired by your DIYs and your love for cars. keep pouring more! Your reviews helped me in buying my Amaze VX idtech nov-2013
My car has clocked 48k Kms till now and i have loved every bit of it behind the wheels !
And now to the problem, few weeks back a bus overtook me and pulled/rippped of my bumper, fog lamps and a dent in my Right fender. left it for the 50k Kms service and for the damages.[Rs 6k and 16k] and today after a week went to take delivery. inspected the vehicle and seemed good. but as i left the ASS
noted that the Malfunction Indicator Lamp was on
. called up the ASS
and immediately went back to check.
After 1.5 hours they came back saying that the IAT sensor(air intake) is the problem
then i remembered during Christmas 2014, the car lights and the wiper failed to work and the ASS
said that the fuse is blown. (5 fuse in total !) ASS
is now quoting me 11k for the IAT as i dont have extended warranty and i have crossed 40k Kms. and they are trying to upsell me with AnyTimeWarranty which is around 7K and i can claim the IAT after a months time.
I was arguing with them that this happened in their premises and i cant be responsible (i might be wrong.) and my engineering mind was telling me that it cant be sensor fail so easily considering the previous blown fuse.(there has to be a reason for the fuse to break)
the manager told me that they will inspect wiring in the next 2 days and get back to me. however im not satisfied and really confused on what to do now. any suggestions. ? should i escalate to honda care if they ask me to pay for the IAT sensor or get the AnyTimeWarranty ? Other TAI
members - insights would be helpful.
