1 year completed - First service update
Completed 5800 kms / 1 year. Did first service of my Polo which falls 15000kms /1 year interval. No major issues so far.
Following works have been carried out:
1. Engine oil replacement – 3 ltr.( 970/- per litre Castrol Megnatec Professional B4/OE 5W 40 synthetic oil)
2. Oil filter replacement
3. Air filter replacement
4. Pollen(AC) filter replacement
5. VAG-Com analysis
6. A lot of checks for which they shown me the list which includes a specific check for battery power also (report shown).
7. Shown me underbody of the car to check for damages. It was touchwood. I found that in addition to special protective coating of paint, thick plastic plates are installed on the underbody of car which takes the hit in case your underbody kisses somewhere.
8. Washing ( Engine compartment not washed , only wiped with wet cloth in approachable areas)
9. Vacuuming ( they claim that they have vacuumed the car, but I can’t comment as my interiors were in its original condition, say factory fresh. So there were more chances of its getting dirty at workshop. I take too much care of my car.)
Total bill was around 5300/- which includes around 1000/- as labor and remaining parts. I have paid ZERO
, since I have AMC. So I feel that buying an AMC is good because you don’t need to worry about service bills.
Now my driving experience throughout the year.
1. Driven at a speed of 100 kmph during raining. Believe me I could know the speed only when I saw the speedo.
2. Comfort is excellent. Did 13 hours/ 600 kms. Distance once.
3. Have tried some spin in ghats with wet road and tires( Without ABS
) .This car sticks to road so well and gives you feeling of safety.
4. Fuel economy ranged from Min. 13.75 to Max. 16.75 kmpl.
5. Overall I am satisfied with the car as a product, a great product indeed. VW workshops are still to learn things as far as customer satisfaction is concerned.
