I always give the dealer a checklist of jobs. Always via email to the service GM and the service advisor.
Ive noticed they always print it out and tick it off when delivering the car and I also note the job card and bill (where applicable) corresponds.

Ive been doing this for about 12 - 13 years now. So far so good!

My Kwid is going for the first servicing pretty soon. My friend who owns a EON had a very bad experience during his car's servicing. Apparently, the coolant needed to be topped up and the Hyundai technicians had topped up with water. He came to know about it once he reached home. What are the possibilities of a similar act being performed at a Renault service station and what precautions need to be taken for that? Also for a first servicing at 2000 kilometers, what all is replaced / topped up usually? Is there any check list available for the same?

Some points from my side;
1. Be hawk eyed when it's the last free service. Newish parts may be swapped out for well used.
2. Avoid weekends and holidays. More time pressure= more short cuts.
3. Be firm on timelines, but do not give the impression of being in a tearing hurry.
4. Speak with the attending mechanic. Works best over chai pitstop during post work TD.
6. Beware of extras- interior disinfection, Teflon coating, engine bay treatment etc. These are not required, will be poorly executed and highly charged.
