Default Datsun Redi-GO: Service packages upto 5 yrs/50000 km launched

Datsun India has introduced service packages for owners of the Redi-GO hatchback. These new packages have been introduced to mark the three year sales anniversary of the Datsun brand in India.

Called Datsun CARE, this new initiative has been divided into three service packages, spanning over different time periods and mileage ranges. The 3 years/30,000 km plan costs Rs. 15,500, the 4 years/40,000 km package is pegged at Rs. 21,500, while the highest 5 years/50,000 km plan is priced at Rs. 32,000.

The Datsun CARE service package includes coverage of parts and scheduled service expenses including labour charges and taxes. Additionally, it offers some value added services like replacement of brake and clutch components, replacement of wiper blades once a year, wheel alignment and balancing, extended warranty with road-side assistance, exterior washes and interior cleaning. Datsun claims that Redi-GO owners across India can save approximately 10% on periodic maintenance and general service repairs by opting for the said packages.

Since the aforementioned packages are specific to the car, they will remain valid even if the car is sold to a new owner. The said benefits of the Datsun CARE packages can be availed at all Nissan-Datsun dealerships across the country.

The 5th year is a little on the higher side. But then again you can't put a price on peace of mind. And while these prices seem okay, I don't agree with the crossed out prices.
Do 3 services for a Redigo cost over 22k? That's very high for what's intended to be an ultra budget car. I would expect the price to be under 4k for a service. This higher cost could rather drive away the customer than help him. A Ford Figo costs lesser to service than this.

Also, it's good to see some wear and tear parts to be covered. I would have loved to see the battery to be included as well, because sometimes they do last 4-5 years and in other cases, the prices of the plans would make more sense

Excellent initiative . I'm a huge fan of these all-inclusive packages as they greatly enhance the ownership experience. Complete peace-of-the-mind.

They are well-planned (10k km / year which is the average) and well-priced (6,400 / year for the 5 year plan). Considering that includes extended warranty, roadside assistance, wear & tear parts (brakes, clutch, wiper blades, wheel alignment + balancing) and even exterior / interior cleaning!

Transferable to the next owner too - they've not held anything back.

I hope these plans become popular and they are offered by other manufacturers too. Just get the 5 year plan when you buy the car and add the amount to your car loan. EMI will increase barely by a couple of hundred bucks a month.

Nissan cars have 6 month interval between each servicing, hence I assume it is same for Datsun too. In that case 22k for 6 services equates to 3600/- each is competitive IMO.
