Brilliant App! I loved how it picked up all my service records instantly. It will be a very easy task to check used cars now for their service records. Just have to assume that the owner of that car gets the vehicle serviced at M*A*S*S and everything is clear as daylight!

Yup, as of now, only services done at dealer service stations are showing up. Even if you do the service at an authorized Maruti service center, but which is not a dealer, it wont show up here.

Wow, this app is outstanding... Just used the Maruti App to get the service cost and unscheduled repair cost of my vehicle over the entire ownership...

The unscheduled repair in 2008 is actually installation of my custom skid plates. The year 2009 had no expense because of initial free service.

Talking re: Maruti Care App for Android, iPhone and Windows Phone users

Now that's what I call an App!

Thank god, I don't have to type in my service history and expenses manually.

I didn't see a fuel fill-up screen though - this would help.

Now if they could just integrate my OBD to this...

Excellent App! I was able to get the service records for the last 5 years instantly. It also gives the cost of regular services and running repairs over the years.

Thumbs up re: Maruti Care App for Android, iPhone and Windows Phone users

Downloaded the app on iPhone and its very good. The best part is access to contact information specific to the dealer and repairs etc. Booking service is the most welcome feature for me. Other than SA who works on my car, I don't want to talk to anyone at MASS Hopefully when I book it online, I get the same SA to work on my car.

I liked the service cost calculator - although we know it by now, I can actually drill down per service item as per manual and some on demand too. And the documents section is too good. Wish our RTO treats these soft copies as valid documents to verify! Leaving aside the privacy and data safety aside

There are few items I will put on wish list though - I can see the previous service records but not the itemised details of each record. For example, it would say Paid service - but wouldn't tell me if the engine oil was changed at that service! Since I already maintain all the details of the service etc in my "Gas Cubby" app, this feature is redundant/ no great value.

Thats right. However, it allows to update the owner name and email address. I just did mine.

It took its own sweet time in coming but is pretty comprehensive.
My 3 years of maintenance and body shop work is clearly specified and tabulated and can easily ascertain my expenses for the tenure of the ownership.

Also, the contact details up dation was swift and loved the way it was handled locally!!
Hello,

Can you tell me how you got it working? I am also facing the same error. Also how did you set the password? Were you registered in some other maruti portal?

Trident, a Hyundai dealer in Bangalore also have their app at the play store to manage your service history and bookings but this app needs lot of improvement and not as useful as Hyundai Care app.
Thanks Grand Drive for letting us know about the Hyundai app. Hyundai never bothered to let their customers know about this app like they did with some of their cars.

Dear Knightrider and other Bhpinans facing issues with the App:

Step 1:
You try to login as a New User.
Here you have to input car VIN/ Reg No.
Automatically, you will come across a screen with your Mobile No. shown as xxxxxxx1234 asking you to confirm.

Step 2:

You confirm that this is your mobile No.

Step 3:

You will be directed to a screen which requires you to input a One Time Password(OTP) which has been sent to your registered mobile.

Step 4:

Enter this 6 digit numeric code and you will be prompted for a creating a password.

Step 5:

One time login using your mobile no. and the password you just created.

Step 6:

Access to the app now and your car details, service records etc are directly uploaded.

Cases where you cannot log in
:

1) Incorrect VIN/ registration No. inputted. Eg. in my case, my car no. is 0924 but in Maruti Records it is 924. So, the 0 will create an error that the car is not registered.

2) Incorrect Mobile No uploaded.
This happened in my case too. the mobile no. ws wrongly updated in my MSIL records.

Any of these can be easily rectified with a call to your dealer/workshop.
Will be updated in 5 minutes.

You can either:
1) Check with new credentials/details in the app
2) Uninstall and re-install the app and you are set to go.

Hope this helped!!

Great app. Surprisingly, Production stopped vehicles doesn't have a service calculator option I guess. My A-Star AT couldn't get through the Service Calculator where as Ertiga have the option.

If they can add a Fuel log tracker feature to this, it would help many of us immensely to keep an eye on cost of ownership.

Kudos to MUL for bringing this out. I just logged in and have all the details for my 2008 Alto. The app interface is a little lazy and hangs but I'm sure improvements are upcoming.

This is excellent app and now I can see entire service history & costs for my Swift. Wondering why can't Maruti provide such details through their website for desktop users? Why these details are made available as mobile app only?
