The recommended service frequency of most of the Maruti cars are 10K KMs / 1Year whichever is earlier.

Let me throw my hat in this discussion with a real life case study. India, or rather the roads, do throw a lot of challenges at the cars. Most of the time unpredictible!

I had set out to check out a commericial site on mysore road in the family hyundai. You cant fathom how careful a driver I am, driving at a liesurely 60kmph, but one of the road humps managed to hit the engine guard below, and the car was barely drivable. Being a sunday the authorised workshops were closed but along the way one could see only maruti service stations, that were open. Finally flat bedded it to the city incurring 4k in cost. The car was repaired on monday. It was a 10 minute job. I really wished my car was a maruti that day.

So its not that we dont trust the vehicles, its the terrain, the roads and the infrastructure that throw googlies at you. Imagine if I were in a high end German car. I'd have gone bankrupt that day!

At least Fiat is on top of the charts somewhere!

Toyota is doing a fab job being able to almost double its revenue share vis-a-vis volume share. Goes to reiterate the point why they are happy selling their SUVs and are not bothered about getting new smaller cars.

That's where Maruti takes a beating considering they sell a large number of small cars. Would you have similar figures for 1 year back? Would be interesting to see how Maruti has moved since then considering their increased focus on bigger cars.

Do consider that much more money is made in after-sales than the actual point of sale. And for most manufacturers including MSIL, money comes in via financing, insurance, extended warranties, maintenance packages, value added services (coatings, cleanings etc), regular services, over-the-counter parts sales and in the end - if the customer wants to replace it with another Maruti - a much bigger profit in terms of True Value resale. Volumes do matter.

Here are some amazing facts,

- July saw total sales of over 2.98 lakh units in the passenger vehicle segment that has registered a growth of 15.12% over last financial year.

- Over 50% of the cars sold in July 2017 was by Maruti Suzuki, the market leader sold over 1.53 lakh cars in the domestic market

-Maruti Suzuki managed to sell almost 4,945 units every day last month

- Five of Maruti Suzuki’s hatchbacks, one sedan and one SUV featured in the top ten list

- The demand for the entry level car seems to have increased due to GST benefits as the Alto gained highest ever monthly sales after ten months.

-Within the Passenger Vehicles, Passenger Cars, Utility Vehicle and Vans grew by 5.15 percent, 14.98 percent and 0.09 percent respectively in April-July 2017 over the same period last year.

I have done this exercise for last year from Sep to Dec '16. The link is given below:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...its-maker.html (Revenue calculation of cars sold in India - How many $$$ each model brings to its maker)

Maruti Suzuki always have a difference in the range of -7% to -9% since most of the volumes are made up of the entry level cars, with new premium models notwithstanding.

Even this month, see the jump in volumes of Alto, Wagon-R and Celerio and that offset the jump in premium segment.

Also do note that this just gives the approx. level of revenue, but as someone said, the main revenue for the OEMs would be the A.S.S. and other ancillaries. And if you count in the fact that most of these entry level cars are from older platforms there is very little cost involved in manufacturing them due to no investment in their machineries, the main example being Omni and Alto.
