I did not enquire much about the list. There are 2 MASS and 2 Dealer service centers. Hence opted for Popular maruti (Dealer) service center.
As Vibhor said , for first service if you can wait for 2 hours you can take back the car with you again.
2 hours is quite a less time Dhaya. If we need to get the vehicle checked up and serviced properly, i believe in giving them time. If they do not perform upto my expectation then my bad side would start. Have given the vehicle for service today in a dealer service station.
KMS clocked: 1100.
Below are the jobs that would be done:
1. 1st free service
2. Oil, filter, Etc change change,
3. Fix bolt for underbody cover (Which got lost few days back).
4. Fix the fender mud covers
5. Fix the rear mud covers
6. Tighten all bolts and nuts
7. Checked for steering rattling (This was informed by their driver who came to drop me back home).
8. Interior, exterior water wash and cleaning
I came upon a good info from a SE. He informed that oil change would not be necessary as Maruti has sent a certain batch of engine numbers to all dealers not to change the oil.
Later when he checked my car's info, he had found that the engine number was not in that batch. Hence, had to change the oil (Unfortunately).
When enquired further, he informed that the batch numbers mentioned were Dec end/ Jan manufactured cars. Those cars were given to customers with premium oil (Synthetic) by Maruti to avoid any performance issues if any.
No major complains in the car except a very minor scratch on the bottom left of the front bumper while parking. Hopefullt it would be resolved by rubbing polish work.
Delivery is scheduled to happen today late noon but i would be able to take it only tomorrow morning. Will keep this thread updated with the service results and differences.
