I just called the service center kun Hyundai Adyar Chennai and found that there is no discount on body parts/body works very disappointing for me.

Not surprising considering that HMP chennai told me that there are no discounts on consumables itself as mentioned in the ad. In fact the last time this happened, they were giving 10 to 15% off on consumables. Perhaps these discounts are introduced only towards the end of the clinic to minimize their loss?

Hmm, I'm in a bit of a paradox. You see, my car turns one year old on Sunday, 27th Sep 09. Since Spring Hyundai Kolkata stays open on Sundays, I'd planned to give her a special bday treat by taking her for a full service, as well as a Teflon polish service. But after reading about the free car service camp, I'm thinking. 2 options:

1. Take the car for a service by 20th sep, avail free camp benefits. Celebrate cars bday some other way.

2. Forget camp, take car for service on 27th Sep, watch her getting tender love and care . Emotional satisfaction, no financial benefit.

Wattado?

Go for Option 2 and meet the service interval guidelines. 2nd service should be done within 12 months.

Dude, actually the 3rd service should be done within 12 months. First 2 are done already. And in any case, if I do it 7 days before time, it would still be within 12 months, no?

Okies . I assumed wrongly- may be you already crossed the kms limits basis which you are through with your second service before 12 months ( 1st service - 10000kms or 6 months, second - 20K kms or 12 months kind of..).

Get your facts straight. Surprised to see you own a Verna CRDI yourself.

1st service - 1200 kms or 1 month (whichever is earlier)
2nd service - 9000 kms or 6 months (WIE)
3rd service - 18000 kms or 12 months (WIE)

and periodic service at 9000 kms to follow.

@predator - do service internals vary in different cities or something? Here my intervals are 1500, 10000 and 20000 km respectively, and first service was after like 3 months or something.
I'm going through the same confusion as you. I complete 1 year on 14th october, and dont know if having the third service done during this clinic will be beneficial.
Also, the hyundai guys are generally understanding if you go beyond the actual service interval date by a couple of weeks. Its always good to have a good rapport with one of the senior advisors or the service manager there.

Hi guys, I did see this advertisement calling all hyundai customers. I have two cars in my garage (i10 & Santo). I would call up KUN or DSC Hyundai and get a slot booked for their free [COLOR=black][FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']diagnostics[/FONT][/COLOR].

Can anyone share their experience with this free care clinic?

Thanks,

Hey Pras, your comment got me puzzled initially, as I used to think I have the entire manual memorized - so many times have I read it!

Anyway, another reading of the manual was in order, which I did yesterday. Guess what? Both of us were right! This is what the instructions say:

1st Service - 1200 to 1500 kms, or 2 months, whichever is earlier
2nd Service - 9000 to 10000 kms, or 6 months, WIE
3rd Service - 18000 to 20000 kms, or 1 year, WIE.

So while I was quoting the minimum mileage, you were quoting the maximum in the range!

As for the service, here's the way I see it. Since its warranty service, labour is free anyway - camp or no camp. The only thing we have to pay for is engine oil (about 700 bucks) and fuel filter (1200 bucks). 20pct of 1900 is 380 bucks.

So think about it. If those 380 bucks matter, do take your car while the service camp lasts.

I went ahead and booked my service for the coming 20th. They are giving me 10% off on consumables, so I might as well take it. Why let go of the chance they are giving us?

Default Re: Hyundai Free Care Clinic - Season 7

The 2013 hyundai free car care clinic has started today. So, for the past 2 years - everytime it starts on March 15 and September 15. I have alligned my 6 month service cycle with this to take advantage of their discounts.

Took my car for service today even though there was no ads yet on the free clinic. But as I had hoped, the folks were just putting up the boards and balloons for the clinic.

I took my i20 today morning for the FCCC. I took it to Neighbourhood Motors and the service i got was 10/10. I was promptly attended and the car was taken in straight away. since it was just the start of the day and i was there at 10 am, the rush was still building up.

The car was inspected in and out by the team there and given a nice wash. I was also given a complimentary Car Freshener. I know it doesnt cost much, but its the gesture that counts. I was made to wait in the nice customer lounge and a nice cup a coffee to keep us going.

The entire process took a total of 25-30 mins. Once the car was ready, we took a test drive to test / check for any issues.

Over all i would rate Hyundai & Neighbourhood Motors 10/10.

Regards,

This is the link for this year's announcement, but exact details(quantum of discounts) are not mentioned.

http://www.customercare.hyundai.co.i...Clinic-35.aspx

None the less, good time to get it done if you are planning a routine service.
