@shk sorry for being out of the Forum for long. was stuck with family issues. Mine finished first year and going strong at 17k on the odo.
It is great hatch back overall.
Will be updating my thread soon.
Meanwhile any good suggestions for Alloys?

Late update
First of all ,I am apologizing for not updating regularly.
Sandy crunched 39,900kms upto date.Some glitches are present.
There is a foul smell from Aircon.This smell is prominent in all fan speeds.
The second problem is poor paint job done by the workshop.The Rear Left door was dented and was repainted from Popular Motors but now it cannot match the original paint quality and reflects irregularly.There is also some paint drops at a corner.Please suggest what can be done.

Sreehari, congrats on a successful 40

Before commenting on the service costs, please outline what all work was performed (and the charges for each component). It could be that the 40K service is a major one, and the charges are justified. That said, some Maruti service stations are known to fleece customers. My bhabhi's Maruti 800 cost 5,000 bucks a service (even the minor ones) until I stepped in.

Awesome photos of your Ritzy, I must say you have really maintained her well.
From the details provided the amount charged is justified according to me, can you please tell whether you have opted for the mentioned services or it was suggested by the service manager?

Thanks Sourov,the works done are mainly according to the service manual .The Aircon vent cleaning and engine decarbonising was done as per my dad instructed.The engine is now a lot more smoother than before.

Scam! There is no need to get engine decarb done so early (if at all), especially as you have changed your oil on time. This has contributed to your service advisor's monthly target.

This is the fuel filter I guess.

I don't see anything extraordinary with your 40K bill, except for the thousand bucks spent unnecessarily on engine decarb. A lot more work than a basic service has been performed on the Ritz.

Thanks for sharing!

Sreehari's dad specifically asked the service people to get engine decarb done (please see Sreehari's reply to .sourov)

When ever i goto MASS they always suggest me engine decarb. My car is a petrol ritz with 21k kms. Till now i have avoided their advice. When is it actually needed as i follow the car manual for servicing regularly.

@GTO
Thanks GTO ,for the clarification.My dad asked to do engine decarb to the SA.Engine decarb was done as there was some mount of black smoke after 39k kms.

Congrats on completing 40K kms Sreehari. What attracted me to this thread was the breathtaking pictures that you posted today.

The scenic background is really beautiful and serving a great background for your toffee colored Ritz

Btw, there is one TBHPian from Hyderabad who has clocked 50K kms in his Ritz in about a year. Crazy isnt it?

Have fun and drive safe!!!

Thanks avinash fir the complements.The ritz is still very fresh and there are no signs of age apart from a few scratches and swirls.The engine still feels fresh and also inspires confidence.I have planned to get her an ID-TBHP Sticker.
