I have skimmed my brake discs several times, and finally replaced it

Car : Maruti 800 ( 1996 Carb ).

Condition : Always starts with 1 key, give an average of 18 in City 20 on Highway. With AC figures are 16.5 and 18.5 respectively.

Mileage on odo : approx 75,000 km

Money spent on it : Rs 200 for All Weather Halogens ( 100/90 )and then Rs 230 ( 100/ 90) on Blue Halogens.

Spent Rs 120 on replacement on spark plugs changed at 50,000 km
Spent Rs 4400 on JK Radials Changed at 55,000 km

Changed Engine oil total 6 times : Rs 2500
Labour cost : Rs 300
Changed Gear box oil once @ 40,000 km : Rs 350
Labour charge : Free
Bought and used up 2 bottles of Brake Fluid : Rs 100
No accidents. Actually there is not a single dent on the car.

Except the above the car is running on original parts.
So Rs 8200 in 11 years = Rs 62 per month.
Not bad if I do say so myself !

Car : NHC iDSI 2004
Condition : Starts with 1 key ( duh.. It's a Honda )
Average in City ( New Delhi and Noida ) 18 kmpl. Highway mileage 24 kmpl.
Figures are with AC on. Never drove the car with without AC.

Mileage on Odo : 32,568 km

Service : Rs 2700 approx in three service till date.
So Rs 2700 in 42 months = Rs 64 per month.
Okay I admit it NHC is High maintainance car !!

Regards

Dinesh

I want to add one more to the list.The steering gearbox is being replaced the 2nd time even though it was replaced a year back.This time during the rains water got into it and rusted the whole thing out 3000 bucks down the drain.
I guess every month some evil spirit comes and kisses my car.

Hi All I have a second hand 99 carb Zen that I acquired Nov 2006, it's been exact 10 months since then and I have outlined the expenses I have incurred so far below, It's copied from exl to notepad and then there, so sorry if it's not very readable, but I have logged all the expenses I have incured till date below, here it goes.

Maintanence Cost from 09.11.06 to 01.09.07
Break up of the above Date
Fuel Guage Float Replacement 300 10-Nov-06
Break Oil 75
Labour on the Above 225
Battery Replacement 2600 11-Nov-06
Water Wash 200 15-Nov-06
Break Master Cyclinder replacement 1150 17-Nov-06
Break Fluid 60
Labour on the above and add coolent 290
Change of Gear Oil, Engine Oil, Servicing,
Hand Break Adjustment, Back break shoe change
Hand Break Cable Change, Power Window
Adjustment, Wheel Aligment, Car Inside-out wash 3500 18-Nov-06
Fan Belt Replacement, AC Gas top up,
Sterring and Tape deck 1700 4-Dec-06
Clutch Adjustment, AC and Tape deck 3900 11-Dec-06

AC Gas Refill 650 19-Feb-07
Sony Speakers 1000
Sony Speakers Fitting labour, wind screen water
Pump adjustment 300 15-Mar-07
AC Complete work - Compressor, AC Bottel, 1 piece Pipe
1 Piece Check Valve, Gas Charge and Labour Charge
Wheel Bearing replacement (Front wheels) 5000 15-May-07
Clutch overhaul 1000 4-Jun-07
Exaust Pipe Leak rectified, Parking and AC bulb,
Air-Filter Change 900 24-Jun-07
Power window adjustment, and windscreen washer adjustmet
and door lock service 500 15-Jul-07
Body touch up with Paint, back lights glass change
front parking light change, Engine Oil Change, door side
beeding changed. 3000 1-Sep-07

The above works out to Rs 26350.
I have driven around 6300 Km's and my average maintanence per Km is Rs 4.20, and average monthly spend on Maintanence is about Rs 2635. The majority of it was trying to get the AC to perform, however I have now realised that, what I getting of the AC right now is the best the Zen carb AC can do.

Anyways that was my story so far.

A very interesting and fantastic thread. This will conclusively decide if the cars that have a reputation of expensive/cheap servicing costs actually deliver on that front. But not a single reply yet?

Ok lets start with a car that has a reputation for expensive spares and service.

year/Make/Model: 2003 Fiat Palio S10

Kilometer reading at time of service: 52,000 Approx

Under warranty (Y/N): No

Work done at authorised dealership (Y/N): Yes

Dealership Name & city where work was carried out: Wasan Tata-Fiat, Chembur , Mumbai

Cost of following (ex-tax) Note: leave blank is part was not changed:
Filters:

* Air Filter:
* Fuel Filter: Rs.76.57
* Oil Filter: Rs. 78.67
* Pollen filter:

Engine Oil

* Quantity: 3.8 Ltrs
* Brand: Don't know.
* Price: Rs.371.36


Rates of brake fluid, power steering oil and labour charges can be seen in the attached scanned copy of the invoice. Don't miss the price of the Bardhl Super heavy duty engine treatment and the quantity used.

That's great Amit. I think a scanned copy of the bill like you have posted should also be included. Gives an excellent insight.

I'll have mine up soon as well.
