neo, do you get only 2 free services for the Palio ?

I was thinking that my 24000 kms in 3 years is low running. Stand corrected after seeing your 9300km running. I wonder why you are wishing for a diesel car, when your running is just 250kms per month.

Hey Bro, we get 3 free services with Palio as wel.. Due to my low running I exhausted the period in which you need to get your free services done.

The low running is due to my daily travel to my office. My office is just 3 KM from my place and it takes 20 min to cover this distance in car.. so I prefer bike.

About diesel, as I am married now, me and my wifey have done many long trips.. In 2 months almost covered 1600 KM. Another reason is, in 2009, petrol would be touching 80-90/- mark

Default Marina upto 40000kms.

Hi,

This is a long post. Sorry.

This is the maintenance history of my Marina bought in 29/10/2005 with 24kms on the odometer. At the 40000kms service on 03/05/2008 (918 days) it had covered 40094 kms averaging 44 kms per day. The average as well as the distance covered would have been more had I not used the City purposefully to cover adequate mileage within its scheduled free services. My daughter's daily school run is a total of 62 kms shared equally by both the vehicles now.

The maintenance is divided into scheduled and unscheduled services or
expenditure.

Scheduled:

1 25/01/2006 5046 125.00
2 27/03/2006 7716 953.00 oil change
3 12/05/2006 9996 168.51
4 29/09/2006 14958 964.54 oil change
5 24/02/2007 19950 632.85
6 14/06/2007 25085 1749.24 oil change
7 18/08/2007 29640 1106.04
8 12/10/2007 32515 1061.54 oil change
9 18/12/2007 35011 2068.39
10 03/05/2008 40094 2395.87 oil change

This adds up to a total of 11224.98 After the 15000 kms service, oil was changed only at 25000kms as per a message in the Indica group about the 10000km oil change for turbo charged engines. The then supervisor at the local service centre accepted the changed interval. But later personnel there insisted on oil change at 7500kms interval and since I could not trace the actual bulletin, I reverted and did oil changes at 32500 and 40000kms. The first oil change in our vehicle was at 7500kms only. The oil definitely lasts comfortably for 10000kms without much degradation in quality as well as quantity.

At the 35000kms service the front ball joints were replaced.

Nonscheduled services or expenditures:

1 19/06/2006 11923 80.00 shifting wheels from front to rear
2 28/04/2006 290.03 175/65R14 tube
3 24/06/2006 12220 40.00 shifting stepney to rear right
4 31/10/2006 60.00 pollution
5 02/06/2007 60.00 pollution
6 18/07/2007 27410 90.11 Rt door mirror
7 23/10/2007 32991 1702.00 glow plugs 4 @ 363 + 250.00
8 03/12/2007 34580 60.00 pollution
9 21/12/2007 3000.00 JK Toronado 165/80R14 tubeless tyres 2
10 24/12/2007 35064 535.00
11 15/01/2008 36834 111.79 fluid leak
12 18/01/2008 36927 255.43 fluid leak
13 29/01/2008 37284 160.20 thermostat seal for coolant leak

The unscheduled expenditure comes to a total of 6444.56 and the total
maintenance costs stands at 17669.54.

No. 1 was when the rt front tyre developed a bulge. Since Apollo kindly refused to honour a warranty claim, no. 3 was done and the damaged tyre with a tube was put in as the stepney.

Nos 4, 5 and 8 are the mandatory pollution certificates.

The right door mirror glass went missing in a theatre car park and was replaced by a flat mirror bought locally (No. 6).

No. 7 was when it refused to start one day without any prior intimation. Since the cranking was healthy, glow plugs were suspected. Help was sought from a private Maruti service centre and the replacement was done at home. Sadly I would have saved the glow plug cost had I done it at a dealer and also if I had known that they were covered under extended warranty. Read about it later after one more incident (of somebody else) later.

No 9 and 10 - After feeling that the ride of my City was rough, I had
the opportunity of getting these second hand hardly run 165/80R1 (original spec Swift tyres) at that price for 2. I thought the taller sidewall would be better for ride. I hardly ran it for 60kms (and the ride was better) when a long distance journey for the Marina forced me to change the front pairs with these tyres and so the unique downsized Marina continues with them in front and the regular spec tyres in the back. It makes a difference in the Marina's
front ride and the other parameters like braking and cornering are fine. The wet testing would be on once the monsoon starts. It did well in the summer rains.

No. 11 and 12 are related. It started off as a small leak in the centre of the engine compartment, ruled out coolant and guessed it as gearbox oil. The service centre changed some tube but the leak persisted. On the second visit, confirmed as power steering fluid, suction tube was changed and the problem solved. I think this was also covered under extended warranty, but did not check then.

Maybe all the excitement caused the coolant to leak in drops and this was rectified by no. 13.

Local service has been very reliable except in the fluid leak diagnosis. I will give the benefit of doubt to the service centre.

At 40110kms (after the service) it had consumed 2894.14 litres of diesel of value Rs 99637.93 giving an average of 13.96 kpl with AC on all the time.

In the past 22000kms my car has cost 1.65rs/km to repair.
That includes some major work like
1. Alternator(10K)
2. Ac Compressor work(3500)
3. Clutch replacement(4500)
Now I am expecting close to 1rs/km repair cost going forward if nothing major requires overhaul.
