Hello!

Has anyone tried out the AMC offer by Tata Motors. This is specifically for the Vista Quadrajet.

A few days ago, I recvd a call from them offering this feature wherein they mentioned that the AMC for my Vista-D (run 32k kms) would cost me 9k for 2 scheduled services. This includes all consumables for the scheduled services and new fuel/oil/air filters etc. Wheel aligment and brake checks are also included in this.

I plan to retain the car at least till the end of 2014 and by then it should have crossed 50k KM.

Should I go for it?

Thanks Rahul for sharing this info, however i got the AMC done just before the 2nd Service. it makes a lot of sense to pick it before the 2nd service which involves consumables

Though I am posting this after an year, still posting it for the benefit of all the members.

When I took my 30K KM run Vista QJD VX for service last weekend, the SA at VST Motors Service (TATA Motors authorized) Perungudi, Chennai, suggested me that I could opt for AMC silver plan. The cost for next 20K KM (or) 2 Years is Rs.8870/- This would cover the current 30K KM service and 40K KM service.

He told me this would cover oil, filters(oil, Air, Fuel), Wheel Balancing, Alignment(weights not included), Rotation, coolant, A/C service, Coolant system - Flush, All Labor charges.

However, I was charged Rs.500/- for Oil additive. So it is not covered.

He showed me an excel sheet that had the details of the cost, applicable Km etc, I asked him if I could take a photocopy in my mobile camera, which he denied stating that it is not allowed due to some internal rules

I requested him to at least note down the details in a paper and give me for future reference. He agreed and provided me the details which is available in the attached spreadsheet. This is applicable for Vista QJD vehicles that has ODO between 40000KM - 50000KM.

Just serviced our Nano for 30000 km/3 yrs paid service at Pandit Auto Bhosari. Actual running was 18K. Nano is under Gold AMC contract which was taken on Jan 2013 at 4555 kms and valid upto 4 yrs / 24555 kms.

I had opted for pickup/drop and was expecting bill upto 3-4k because I knew that clutch cable / clutch plate need replacement. Even if AMC is there we cannot expect each and everything under warranty.

To my surprise, the bill came only 305/-. And those were the pickup drop charges + service tax. Everything from oil, coolant, clutch, clutch cable, rear suspension, brake pad etc etc work was done under warranty.

The service guy who delivered the nano after service was saying that AMC saved a lot of money for me . He also refused tip so I did one favour and dropped him at chaphekar chowk bus stop because my home is almost 1-1.5 km from there.

Go for it eyes closed. Try & get the Gold AMC.

The amount of consumables they replace is mind boggling. complete peace of mind (provided your TASS is not a completely crooked place)

As you have already mentioned, the Gold AMC does not include Tyres, Brakes, Accident-related damages (even rat-bite related damages). Else everything is covered. The only recent clause that has come up is that the replacement / repairs must be done during service - meaning, you cant walk in and demand that the wipers be replaced.

Warranty is for any component failure. Warranty does not cover wear & tear items. Gold AMC should include wear & tear items also - like if your brake-pads wear out during the coverage period.

I do own ARIA Pure LX.
ARIA has service intervals of 15K. so if you opt for one year AMC, it will be for 20K. so only one service is covered.

I had paid Rs 3600 for 15 K service and Rs 5200 for 30K service. So total cost for 30K was 8800/ only.

What are the chances of break pad going bad with in 50K? . what's is price of break pads and labour cost?

Same with clutch, do you think it will go before 30-40K?

Except for clutch , break pads and suspension, what is new in these AMC's? Rest all are regular service consumables.

My Vista Clutch plate lasted 84K. i have changed voluntarily as i have long trip planned and CRB has to be changed due to noise. As the labour cost is same for CRB changing and clutch changing , i had opted to change, even though clutch plate has another 5-10K life

These AMC prices are for cars under warranty. What are the prices of AMC for cars out of warranty? Are they offering gold AMC for after warranty cars?
I dont think so. They are offering only Silver AMC after warranty is over, that covers only consumables. the cost of silver AMC is almost same or little more than actual consumables cost. In such case why should one pay in advance?

Its been a while since the last post. Any thoughts on what is the best time to pick up the AMC for a new car?
Does it make sense to wait a while and take up the AMC before the second free service or the 3rd free service? (I am speaking in the context of the Tata Tiago Petrol).

If I recall right, the prices of AMC increase as you delay it. The best thing to do, and this is what my service advisor did for me, is to get the AMC when you go for the third service, but register the AMC before opening the service register for that visit.
Across the board, Gold AMC the best value for money.
