Somebody got a complete car detailing done for around 1K for an Innova. There was a thread on this. I just have the person's contact no. but haven't yet utilized his service. From what I read from the thread they were extremely professional and did a very good job. So probably you can get that done for your car which would also involve full cleaning.

1.8K is too much for a car cleaning.

The charges are a pittance to what i have been paying for my santro in HMP (Hyundais own service center). I typically pay 5k+ for service and that does not include washing (they want 400 bucks for outside wash)

major charges includes engine decarbonization (1500), engine flushing (500), service charges(750) and then rest is for spares and labor.

So i think its cheaper than what i pay to hyundai.

Costs look ok. Only the interior cleaning is on the higher side. Dakshin Honda in Bangalore charged me 900/- for interior shampooing and cleaning. This can be got done outside for 400~500. When I renewed my insurance with TATA-AIG, they gave a free coupon for interior cleaning .

Also be wary of Honda service men and insist on checking with you. Once they filled wiper fluid and charged me 200/-. Though the fliud was impressive, no way I would have paid that much amount.

Feeling much better after all your inputs. I'm no miser but don't like the idea of being duped especially after being on this forum which makes us wiser by the day. Cheers!

Got the interiors cleaned (by an outside agency) for 750/- yesterday (shampoo etc). They have done a fair job. No exterior cleaning though.

Hi guys, I have a Honda City ZX EXI 2006. Fabulous Machine.

I was in Arya Honda, Mumbai recently for a regular servicing, and the guys there suggested me the replacement of lower arm on the McPherson struts. And the cost estimate was Rs. 15000. This would include both the lower arms and bushes. Is it justified?

Also, there was a bit under-body damage, which caused some pressing on fuel and brake lines. Now the mechanics say that the perpetual car starting trouble I have is caused by the pressed fuel line. And I believe its a faulty starter motor. Any insight on this.

And last . Same underbody damage has caused some damage to fuel tank. A little bit of indentation. No leaks at all. The cost of new tank, they say, is Rs 11000.
Is this justified?

Can anyone from Mumbai suggest me a place for Honda parts please.

A Million thanks !!

Anupam, your car's now 4 years old. Thus, its probably time to start considering the after-market for repairs (though you can still visit the authorised for simple services).

At Opera House, you'll pretty much get any part you want. I typically shop from Shetty Motors (old and VERY reputable shop). And on the repairs, I cannot recommend an independent better than Sunil Shanbagh (at Dadar East).

My Honda City ZX 2006 has done ~50k KM.
The key lock system of the ignition under the steering just gave way and the key would not turn!
Called up a garage and they said lock needs to be replaced, had to get it done immediately.
I was charged Rs6500 for the whole set of Locks and keys. (driver side, passenger side, ignition and 'dikki' locksand 3 keys.)
Is this price reasonable?

Hi,
I have recently shifted to Bangalore and am in need of a good service center for my City ZX(Sept, 2007, covered 59 k Kms). However, most of the dealer feedback was very negative so not sure if I should visit these dealerships.
It would be great if someone could recommend me a good service center near Koramangla. It could be a private garage as well, given their service is not as paltry as that of most of the dealerships in Bangalore.
Further inputs on emphasis to specific repairs or replacements are welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Guys,

Our Honda City ZX Gxi (2008) recently went for it's routine service (has done 30000kms all these years) at TVS Coimbatore and the rear brake wheel cylinder assembly was found leaking.
We have replaced both the rear wheel cylinder assembly as per the request by service team. Though it's a wear and tear part, does less/minimal usage of the vehicle leads to such early (30,000) replacement?

Was there any kind of rust or damage to it found after opening?

What does TVS have to say for it?

It was found leaking during routine check-up and the service guys told it's better to change since it would affect the braking ability. As per TVS service team, It does happen since it's a wear and tear part.

On mailing Honda customer care, got the below two replies.

"With regards to your communication to us we would like to inform you that brake wheel cylinders push the brake shoes against the brake drum, causing friction that slows down the car. They are located in the rear brake system, inside the brake drums. Over time, wheel cylinder seals may wear out and start leaking brake fluid, reducing the effectiveness of brakes.

Being a wear and tear part and with reference to the above context, a similar observation is found in your car wheel cylinder's. We have further advised our dealership to detail you on it."

"Reference to your trailing communication, we wish to reiterate that the wheel cylinders are wear and tear part and can fail irrespective of the mileage covered in the car. Also on account of less usage of car, such wear and tear is acceptable as a general repair to the car."
