Actually, interiors will look more brighter and airy without Sunfilm. For any color.

If you need privacy, it is a must to have it.

Thumbs up Monsoon Camp!

I had been to the VW showroom today to get the AMC activated. However, I was in for a pleasant surprise! Monsoon Free Service Camp was being held by VW (Without informing the Customers!?). Following things were carried out during this Service:
  • Air filter cleaned.
  • All fluid levels checked.
  • Interiors were vacuum cleaned.
  • Body wash.
  • Overall check of the car - Under chassis, Electricals ...etc.
An umbrella was gifted to beat the rain!! - Humor?


Precaution keeping Bombay floods in mind!?

Bombay Floods... read that as Body Fluids... my mind must be more warped that even I thought!

I like the umbrella, and the tips seem pretty good. Nice thought.

Now... if they'd put more effort into producing those Polos... Please, VW?

Thumbs up AMC for Polo

Service schedule for Polo is as below:
  • First Service is oil-change service done at 15,000 Kms or 1 year - Whichever is earlier.
  • Second Service is Interval service done at 30,000 Kms or 2 year - Whichever is earlier.
  • Third Service is Inspection service done at 45,000 Kms or 3 year - Whichever is earlier.
  • Whatever needs to be replaced during these services, will be done free of cost - for AMC Customers.
  • Cost of AMC for 3 Years - 45,000 Kms is Rs.19,900/- all inclusive.
  • Cost is same for Diesel and Petrol Polo and all variants - TL/CL/HL.
  • 4 Years - 60,000 kms will cost Rs.34,072/- all inclusive. - Since few extra things are changed.
  • Around 1.5% of Invoice value per Year - Sounds VFM.
  • Extended warranty prices are yet to be announced - Expected to be in the range of 7k for 2 years.

Overall, I was satisfied with the prices. I have entered in to the AMC for 3 years. I am thinking of extending it to 4 years. I will also avail extended warranty - as and when prices are announced.

As mentioned in my earlier post, I got my car serviced today. People were courteous and my experience was pleasant.

I got the ECU verified for error logs registered. There were none.

I had a small dent on the oil sump cover under the chassis. This was due to a stone hitting the sump on Mysore road, 3 weeks back. Nothing serious.

Chethan, by any chance did you find out how much the oil-change, inspection and interval service will typically cost if NOT part of AMC?

Even I was amazed that the customers were not informed about the Camp, the service person told me that they have just finished a summer camp and now its the Monsoon camp.

I didnt get the rain tips and the Umbrella

Sounds very competitive

People were courteous and my experience was pleasant.

This seems consistent across the India, people here in Delhi too were courteous and helpful.

I had a small dent on the oil sump cover under the chassis. This was due to a stone hitting the sump on Mysore road, 3 weeks back. Nothing serious.

Please take care, I saw a thick cover or insulation under the sump, even a small dent means it did hit hard. Hope you were not trying to check the ground clearance, in case you do wish to check the same, better get an ostrich egg rather an a stone. Just kiddin..

Engine oil capacity must be around 4-5 liters. IMO, if we calculate separately, each service should cost about 6-9 K, depending on the type of service. I think it will cost us 3K more, if we do not have an AMC for the first 3 years. From my past experience, AMC works out better.

I will be getting the rear parking sensors today. Dealer has found out the way to connect all the couplings, without striping any wire! Will update once I come back.

Thanks, Chethan!

I too will take the 4-year AMC. I guess I can wait a few months after I get the car to take the AMC just as you did, right?

Looking forward to the snaps and damages!

Use it for a few days and please let us know how essential you think it is. My wife has never used reverse parking sensors before, so I wonder if it will make sense for her.

Thumbs up

I got the reverse parking sensors fixed. Looks good - will have to wait and watch.

Also extended AMC to the 4th year. Now - I do not have to worry until 60,000 Kms or 4 years! Rs.34,072/- for 4 years. 7.5K per year. Approximately 1.1% of the invoice value.

There are no damages as such. Very neatly done. I will post some snaps by tonight!

I happened to be present at showroom when parking sensors were getting installed in the car. The workmanship need to be appreciated. Four holes were drilled at the back bumper.

chethan, how are the parking sensors??

Looks good. I feel confident with it - while taking reverse. Worth spending the money.

By damages, I meant the cost. Sorry for being colloquial.

Is this the Rs. 4,200 one? Someone had posted earlier that there is also a Rs. 3,700 one.

Pls tell me how useful you find the parking sensors after a few days of use.

Look forward to the snaps.

Chetan, where are the pics with the parking sensors? Are those after-market or from VW?

This is the 3700 one.

OK. But sensitivity is a bit low. If I drive a bit fast, it might not warn me before I hit some thing. I will get it checked.

This is from VW. I forgot to take snaps during day time. Sorry for that.
