Sorry for delayed response.

The team at Sai Service Hinjewadi did the job pretty well. I reached the workshop at 5 pm sharp and I got the car back at 6:30 PM sharp as promised.

They showed what part is going to be replaced and also showed the new part. Mr Sanjeev who is Pune area service manager had already informed the staff of my arrival. So no time was wasted and things moved quickly.

First they removed the old brake cylinders of rear wheels. Then they put the new part in place. Bleeded both front and rear brakes properly. The service in-charge went on a rather harsh test drive to check brake performance. All seemed ok and i was out.

The part costs 56xx/- INR otherwise. I signed the receipt and was about to leave. But the service in-charge stopped and got the car washed, FOC.

Overall a thorough professional job and no one had to be told anything. Kudos to Maruti and Sai Service team.

I will try to upload some pictures tomorrow. Cheers!

Good to note that you had a pleasant service experience. So, break cylinders are the part being replaced?

A question for all of you fellow S-Cross owners. I recently logged into the Nexa App for the first time and checked the service history of my car. I took the delivery of my car in January and the App is showing that the car has a service named "Body Repair" in December. I'm wondering what this service was about. Do all of you guys also have something like this in the service history of your car? Please let me know

That looks very suspicious if you have taken the delivery in Jan. Have you done any PDI before saying okay for the car?

Body repair can be anything. It can be simple touch-up for paint to major repair. So, its tough to actually suggest anything with that information. But, better get the full details of the repair and then you can take a call.

I did do the PDI but I did it in the first week of January. This has been done on 31/12/2015. Wondering why would they have done it as the car only had 10 kms on the odo

Body repair can be brushing of a minor scratch. The car might have been subjected to some minor body repairs before you had taken the delivery.

It could be minor repair, may be in transit or post transit handling. I say minor because you didn't detect it during PDI. You may have a re-look at whole body minutely and avoid further anxiety.

To err is human but not so with computers!

I did have a thorough look at the car but didn't find anything wrong. Is it something to be worried about? Because, my car is running absolutely fine without any issues.

I do not think you have to be worried about anything. It might be a minor body repair like scratch or minor dent. If you wanted get the details, you can get it from the service centre.

By the by, anyone knows what is the grace period for the PUC certificate. I thought PUC to be taken after 1 Year of the date of manufacture. But, I could not see any documentary proof for this aspect. During my last week trip to Mumbai, I was caught by the police in Mumbai and was fined Rs. 800 for not having PUC. The car is 10 months old and the police says that the grace period is only 6 months from the date of manufacture.

When the vehicles are delivered to the dealers from the plant, they conduct a thorough inspection of the vehicle, typically known as PDI. If any defect/part failure is noticed, they open a PDI Job Card and replace/repair the affected part as per the guidelines of the manufacturer and claim it under PDI warranty. The PDI Job Card does not appear in the vehicle history post the sale of the vehicle. Even if it does, it is listed under the head 'Before Delivery Work'.

In your case, it is listed as 'Body Repair', which implies that the job was done after the vehicle was invoiced to you, in which case, the Job Card could not have been opened under PDI. Also, it would reflect in your vehicle history till the time the vehicle remains commissioned. Please check whether the vehicle invoice date and the actual delivery date are same or not.

All of this does not, at all, mean that you have been cheated or deprived of a vehicle in perfect condition. If the dealer has done a thorough job, nine out of ten times you will not be able to make out the panel which has been repainted. If it does not hamper the aesthetics or handling of the car, it should not cause any concern.

Enjoy your ride as you have already crossed the break-in mark.

Six months from the date of purchase is correct.

It is 1SOO (One S oh oh). I am assuming you have entered 1S00 (1S Zero Zero) which is wrong. I too did 1S Zero Zero at first and got "Incomplete Chassis Number" message. .

For me the number is 1S zero zero only and it's the correct number.. What I feel is that he entered 'I' instead of 1 (one)

Just make sure you get the job done from a reputed shop and also ask them to use good quality stuff. Tell them you might want to remove after a couple of years and you don't want any damage. When I got the stripes done on my Swift, this is what I told them and they said that shouldn't be an issue.

As I understand, the first PUC is valid for 1 year (factory done) and then you need to renew every 6 months. Not sure what's the "grace period" mean.

I believe this is mentioned on the sticker on the windshield. I distinctly remember seeing it on my Swift (believe it was mentioned on the windshield sticker)

Why don't you take a good test drive of V-Max personally and then decide? You probably will miss out on the fast cruising ability if you choose the D-max, but then it all boils down to your preference. If you sell S-Cross, be ready to take a good hit on the re-sale.
