I too am using BT, but its only been a couple of months so too early to comment. But took a risk since it costs only 60% of the Amaron cost.

Thanks for recommendations, I bought Amaron Pro 74DIN for 7500 Rs. Base Terminal was available for Rs5800 (66DIN variant),I checked Base Terminal packing, it wasn’t mentioned anywhere about National Panasonic, it’s manufactured in Nalagarh (HP) and marketed by someone else located in Bangalore.
Sorted out the Caliper issues as well, it took around 2 hrs, got it done as suggested by fellow member. Changed the Wipers and Horn to BOSCH, they do clean better then OEM Wipers.

OE battery in my swift lasted 2 years and 1 month. Brought Base Terminal DIN74 for 5300 after exchanging old battery.

+1. blorebuddy, kindly list the items done under warranty.

Jaggu bhai: How many kms has your swift run now?

BTW is there anything specific about the suspension to be checked during service? Everytime I do tell them to check the suspension and torque the same. When I ask them on the suspension bit, they say everything is fine and no issues. I even doubt whether they do a proper inspection sometimes.

Mine is touching 50k and is more of regular wear and tear. Need to thoroughly check the suspension parts like lower arm, tie ends, bushes etc Only issue most of these parts needs to be removed and inspected and hence the workshops try to avoid it as much as possible.

Otherwise re-torquing all these parts is good enough and generally is part of standard check list during service.

Sorry I do not have the invoice with me however as I remember it is bushes, Lower Arm and Tie End. Tie End was not available hence there was a delay of one more day. I am wondering why there is a scarity of spares. During the 60 K service Diesel Filter was not there.

Got my car back from 20k servicing yesterday. Costed 5k including the following :
- Diesel filter change
- Oil Filter change
- Engine Flush
- Drum / Disc cleaning
- Coolant change
- Gear Oil Change
- Radiator Flush

Used Mobil 1 Fully synthetic 5w-40 oil this time & didn't change the air filter.

Since the servicing I feel the turbo to be missing, what do I need to check to find the cause ?

Could you give the brakeup of the parts and labour. My 20 k servicing at vitesse prabhadevi cost me 8K that too with mineral oil

Lesser pickup may be because of air filter.
Often times service folks say that it "looks" good, but 20K is recommended level to change air filter. You will see noticeable change in pickup on change of air filter

MikilBhatkar, A couple of queries:
1. Any reason for the engine flush at 20K?
2. Why was the air filter was not changed as it is supposed to be changed every 20K and generally a clogged air filter is one of the reasons for people to miss the turbo whoosh.

Jaggu and others,
I needed some advise from you guys, my car meet with an accident recently and is being worked upon in the workshop right now , my car has covered around 9k till now and my 3rd servicing is due in next month or when it touches 10k, but when i checked the engine oil level before giving the car for repairs , it was almost in min level.

So , wanted to know , should i get my 3rd servcing done along with the repairs or just get the oil topped up.Please advise , so that i can advise my SA to do accordingly .

The reason why im confused is because im planing to travel around 400 -500 kms with my family this month end, so i dont want any hassle while travelling, so kindly advise .

Cheers

I would suggest you get the service also done bcos you are going to travel out. Also do keep a very close eye on your oil level. These have been cases of swift diesel drinking more oil than recommended.

Hence once serviced do check the oil and keep monitoring it every fortnight just to be on the safer side.

Cheers
