Default Re: Honda Brio : Test Drive & Review

My Brio is going to complete 2 Years in this August, as of now it has clocked 9800Kms. After August-2014, there is an additional warranty for next two years. Considering my usage pattern, I won't be crossing 20,000KMs in next two years (during my additional warranty period). But to maintain the warranty intact, I have to follow the 6 months maintenance schedule which looks a waste of money.

What should be the best way to go ahead.?

For my Brio VX AT i have been advised that the service schedule is

1st Service : 1 month or 1000 kms

2nd Service : 6 months or 10,000 kms.

and then on every 6 months or 10,000 kms.

That's the right amount you paid for an oil change. They use a semi-synth oil for the Brio and require it to be changed every six months. However, if your running is low you can stretch it to a one-year change interval once the car is out of the warranty period.

The only way to maintain your warranty is to follow the 6 month service schedule. Once the car is out of the warranty period you can then shift to a one-year service interval. Ask the S.A for the 'paid minor service' option on the job card for these 6 month services which is a slightly cheaper option.

They had a crazy three month schedule on the City. Once out of warranty I am going 12 months /10000km. Doing it right now on my Civic. Brio from November.

Thanks for the reply. Will surely try this route.

It was not a service for 9th month.

It was a periodic check up which was called up by the dealer, if interested we can have it checked up.

Since I was planning a long trip, I gave it for check up.
Rs 843 was the final bill for the check up, which included a good wash and polish.

Has anyone fitted alloy wheels other than the Honda's offering? Also anyone has done tyre up size on Brio?

This check up or Minor Service was standard for vehicles prior to the Brio. See the wall chart in the dealership! I never took my Civic in for that. My son is also not going in for it in his City Mk.III AVN. The dealer should not have called. You can go for a quickie anytime but it is purely voluntary. In fact now that my Civic is completing four years I am switching to an annual cycle since do less that 5000 km a year on it.

Honda is recalling the Brios, manufactured between Feb 28, 2013 and Jan 16, 2014 and not having ABS, for inspecting and if necessary replacing the proportioning valve in the brake system. Those of you owning one falling within these dates, please contact your dealer or visit Honda's website for more information.

Got a call from my dealer for the brake valve check up. Would be going in on Thursday.

Any comments?

Are you sure? This may have changed this year because I remember seeing this on the final bill when I paid for the service in Dec last year. IIRC, it was also mentioned on a board inside the service station.

Is this cost of oil or labor. If part of labor you can get it refunded if it is cost of oil it is the usual practice.
Oil or any consumables will be charged across the industry.
