Servicing Maruti 800 costs some hundred bucks though it's a different matter if the service center points out unrequired works. Let me update here after next service.

Good to see the maintenance costs of the cars straight from their owners. Owning a Scorpio seems to be quite an affordable affair considering those figures.
