Default Re: Honda WR-V production begins in India. EDIT: Launched at Rs. 7.75 lakh

The service intervals for all new Honda's is 1 month after purchase, 6th Month and 12th month and then 1 per year, not 6 monthly. ( Kilometre driven criteria applies along with periodic intervals).

If this has changed this is very good. My SA mentioned 10k or a 6 monthly interval which ever is earlier, after the first year service.

Shouldnt the service intervals be mentioned in the service pages of the manual for each of the models? Why this confusion?
Maybe the owners can check and update it here to end the confusion.

Well it seems so from the pricing at least and more so for the petrol. To put this into perspective, why would anybody consider buying WR-V SMT petrol when one can get City SMT by putting just 78000 extra (ex-showroom). That is negligible from the EMI point of view. If anybody ever thought the new City isn't VFM then think again.
There are many people who appreciate higher ground clearance and peace of mind that comes along with it.

I, personally have become so paranoid of Bangalore's Himalayas type speed breakers, craters and shoddy patch works, that ground clearance is now the top most priority for me in my next purchase.

+1.
I would prefer a high GC car even though it brings a bit more body roll. Need not worry about road conditions before start of a trip.

Big shoutout to Rahul Bist for sharing - thank you!

Dear Team-BHP,

I have been following the WR-V thread quite passionately since the rumours started, as my friend wanted to buy one. Here is a piece of information which I would like to share. We came across this during our visit to the showroom yesterday evening.

The service interval for the WR-V is not "6 months or 10,000 kms" but "12 months or 10,000 kms". This was quite surprising to me too, as I own a Honda Jazz and its service interval is "6 months or 10,000 kms".

Attached is the snapshot from the owner's manual of the WR-V.
Finally common sense prevailed at Honda!

My friend shared the Bangalore price list from Whitefield Honda.

Can the experts shed some light on 'TCS @1%'? Strangely, it is applied to only two diesel models. The SA did not have a convincing answer.

There is nothing wrong with the pricelist. TCS @ 1% is charged on variants which cross 10 lakh mark. Here in WR-V's case, only Diesel VX is priced above 10 lakhs.

In the pricelist, there are different prices for Orchid White Pearl & Other colors.

1% of the ex-showroom price is the TCS and is applicable if the ex-showroom crosses Rs 10L

Will this be applicable retrospectively to existing Honda car owners as well or they would be still fleeced with 6 month routine schedule by HASS?

This is only applicable for WR-V. All the other models, including the facelifted City, still have the 6 month schedule. Even if they extend this to all their models in the future, you will have to follow the routine mentioned in your service booklet.

Not necessarily, sometimes manufacturers update the dealership with certain bulletins on service schedules or allowable oil grades etc. Honda should clarify if these service schedules apply to all cars. Since they are sharing engines and mechanical components amongst all their models, why should this schedule only apply to WR-V? They have already switched to synthetic oil and charging higher rates for it. Do they expect people to change synthetic oil every 6 months even if the usage is low.. like 2000km?? If they change the oil grade and charge more then they should also update the service intervals.

What i meant to say was that, until Honda extends the same to all the cars that are sold already, we should stick to the schedule mentioned in the service booklet.

On the contrary, this change has made it cheaper for many of us. Earlier i was paying for costly synthetic oil every 6 months. Now with this switch, they have made synthetic oil much cheaper. I dont think any other manufacturer's ASC has synthetic oil that is as cheap as Honda's.

But I get what you are saying and I doubt Honda will ever change the schedule for cars that are already sold, considering how greedy they are.

Default Re: Honda WR-V production begins in India. EDIT: Launched at Rs. 7.75 lakh

Honda does not budge. I still need to buy their synthetic oil and change every 6 months for my wifes Brio. Even though it runs just 2,500 kms in 6 months time . Have to do it to keep warranties intact. For my City and Civic that's out of warranty now I just change it once a year and it runs fine.

On this topic since I own the 1.8 iVTEC, 1.5 iVTEC as well as the 1.2 iVTEC I don't know how good will the WR-V petrol be since its aprox 150 KG heavier than our Brio.

No matter what people say, I think the 1.2 engine is still a dead dog. You really need to Whip it an Whip it repeatedly to get performance out of it. I feel that in the light Brio as well, if 4 people are seated in the car. So I can imagine how sluggish it may feel on an apparent Recreation Vehicle if taken out of town with family and luggage in the boot.

Had also tested a Jazz automatic last year and even in the apparent sports mode it was still slow. It only made additional noise like an animal but not in speed. And I am a sedate driver, I find the 1.5 ivtec fairly adequate. My friends asked me about the WR-V today and I told them spend 1-1.5 lac extra and get the City SMT if you want to buy a Honda. You would be happier.
