I can see many specuation on the Service Cost. I own a First Generation Logan 1.5 DLX with the ODO about to touch 1.1 L Km driven single handedly.
Routing Service Interval is at 10,000 Km but based on my usage and vehicle condition i normally stretch it at times to around 12k interval. Avg Cost Inclusive of Engine Oil replacement, Air Filter, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter and General Service Charge and consumables will come to around INR. 5000, which translates to around 42 Paise per Km. I get a steady average of 17+ Kmpl with 100% AC in Bangalore City driving, translating to INR 3.23 per Km. Now with maintenance included the total per Km running cost comes to around INR 3.65. Which according to my usage is very hard to find amongst the other offerings in the Indian Market place with the typical USP of Space in Cabin & Boot and ruggedness of the Overall Vehicle and the way it rides overall Bangalore potholes.

Over the years i have found the following to be the downside of the vehicle from the mechanical points; Hard Clutch (however you can lug in 2nd Gear in City Traffic); Headlight Brightness and OEM Tires; Noisy AC at Blower Level above 2 (however you would rarely require it). Rear Windows coming down to approx 60% level Only. Dashboard Rattling over rough hilly terrain.

Absolutley no issue w.r.t Steering at 120+ Speeds, i have done 160 in this vehicle with 3 adults and luggage for short stretch; and never felt any cause to be worried for.

PS: Over my usage i have replace the Original Tires with Bridgestone Potenza at 40k and Exide Battery at 38k. Tire replacement is due in another 10k to 15k based on the W&T pattern.

Normal consumable spares are available across all major A$$ without a fuss these days. And M&M service center's Are good for people like us ;as they are easily approachable and knowledgeable.

A 2012 model verito I saw today. Only the bumpers were repainted due to scratches. Maintained in excellent condition. No complaints by the owner. He wanted to swap since his car is BS3.
