It is not necessary but if you want to spend the money and get it changed go ahead.
You may also check your oil level and the quality to reassure whether the change is needed.
Take the dip stick out and check the oil level as well as feel the oil and make sure it is ok. When oil starts deteriorating it becomes sticky otherwise it will give a free flow feeling.

He is talking hogwash, it takes 2 days, i drove my VDi to the TRO office, the officer came saw the Chassis and Engine number and thats it, drove back and left the car and took it when i wanted the delivery.

Default 5027Kms & 2nd Service update

Gone for second service today. Completed 5027 as of today.
  1. With 3kms driving after the service could not observe any rattles.
  2. Charge came to 510Rs. (Only 4wheel alignment and balancing, no other stuff) I am not sure whether they charged these for others.
  3. Mandovi at JP nagar was the service station, service is good except the clean job. Not satisfied with that.

Alignment and balancing are best done by wheel and tyre folks like Vijay Wheel Alignment or Madhu's. That is what I do. Yes these are chargable service. Only tyre rotation comes free with 2nd service.

Guys

During my recent visit home I noticed most of the Swift diesels on the road put out more smoke than other comparable diesels. More than the Safari Dicor, in fact!

Is this a common issue?

i didn't notice any smoke from biju's swift, but i still wonder how did you manage driving like that with the video camera in hand!

as for the swift i have driven the car and have also noticed slight smoke but the safari does leave other car's in a black cloud!

but steer your car was climbing like a petrol engine and i didn't notice any smoke!

@ Biju - yes your car was smoking just a wee bit. I noticed the smoke because the car was brand new and it shouldnt.

Most other Swifts I've seen do smoke quite a bit, though.

steeer i think its the fuel issue, i use ioc regular and no smoke issues yet.. got so absessed that i got the driver to floor her and followed her around, yes if i completely floor it shades of grey comes out

it can be coz some guys will try to floor and see if car pulls, while out of power, band. Thats the only reasoning i can give.

and now way a 1.3 l can smoke as much as a 3 lit moster just kidding
