I was not satisfied with Indus,Tevara. On your suggestion tried Autoteam for my 5K and 10K services. No complaints. For 15K service just tried Indus, kakkanad, since it is very close to my home and office. Was satisfied with their services and continued for 20 and 25K. There is no much rush and my car get good personal attention. Now I am well known there too (so frequent service visits).
But need to try MSM, now they are in a very big setup.

Congrats on the 50k milestone buddy!! you do drive a lot and I guess if the DDiS was available for you at that time, it would have been a better buy.. But at the end of the day, you are happy with a troublefree ownership of the car which matters the most

Cheers! and Drive Safe

They still haven't come out with an ZDi version!

Dzire ZDi is there, but is more like 'book it and forget it'. The car has a huge waiting period!

Hi,
My 25 K service was priced 2650. In which 900 Rs for 3M body treatment is included. Otherwise, 625 for general km service and 490 for engine oil and 350 for break cleaning. (taxes extra).

Regards

Abhilash

Hi abhilash,

No oil filter change? What is the oil change interval? Isn't it 10000kms?
