It would have been around 6000Rs if brake pads were not changed. Around 2500 for the pads and 500 for the labour is slightly expensive. Were the pads worn out? Service guys usually push for replacement even if the pads have decent life left. Did you face any issues while braking?

Any quick tips to cover or look for during the third free service? I am at Sai Hinjewadi workshop already and have asked for checking software update available and fixing break &clutch pedal squeaking sound.

Just get all the jobs recommended in owners manual. Also it would be better to get the wheel alignment and balancing done outside in well known tyre shops.

3rd service / 10K km has only oil and oil filter change, cleaning the air filter, routine inspection and wash.

Thanks Dr. As practice, i am going to get the wheel alignment/balancing from outside. The SA was pushing me to buy alloy for spare wheel with reason that fifth tyre gets utilized; when I asked to just change tyre from spare instead of buying alloy to counter his selling reason, he backtracked and said we don't do it. I had no intention to get anything done for tyres / wheels.
The software version of the touchscreen is something 740-15....I am told that that is the latest version available. I had got that upgraded last when free replacement of break shoe was done.

Took delivery of my S-Cross Zeta a few hours ago. It was a fairly pleasant experience. I had sent a stinker to the Suzuki chaps last evening. The Customer RM of the showroom requested me to rescind the complaint and give in writing that I was satisfied with their service and also write that they will definitely install in the IRVM in a week. Apparently, if this note is not signed by the customer within 24 hours of raising the complaint, Suzuki fines the dealer Rs. 10,000.

Yeah Pads were almost gone hence changed them. Also not I skip regular while alignment etc as I always get them done outside.
Till now in 14 months I have completed 34k and with hardly any issues.

S-Cross 1.6 in Europe gets "DPF: Diesel Particulate Filter ". I was checking spare parts details of S-Cross 1.6 in India and was surprised to see the word "DPF". Boodmo online spare parts website lists all the MGP parts with figures and part numbers. I was thinking Maruti would have skipped DPF. Also, I checked for 1.3 S-Cross and DPF is not present as expected.

So got the stock JK Elanzo NXTs swapped for Yokohama Earth-1s. The guy I had negotiated the deal for 9k for the swap went back on his word and now demanded 15.5k. He claimed the market is flush with Elanzos as they are crap tyres and the company is liquidating the stock. I then contacted Ranvir Singh from Pal tyres who is also located close to my office and he pretty much repeated the same thing that the Metro Tyres guy stated. However, he offered to buyback at 2800 per tyre and offered the swap for 12.4k. I went ahead with him. He was polite and extremely professional. I don't know whether it was the placebo effect but I definitely thought the ride quality was significantly better - it wasn't marginal.

I felt a big difference too after I swapped the Elanzo NXT's for a set of Mich P3ST's. I have seen people who don't ever feel a thing when changing tires. But for anybody planning to drive this car for over a 100k kms should get better rubber. For not only the tire life but also the (no. of kms x better handling). How tire brands produce such tire models and why car brands adopt them is till date beyond me! 😂

Diesel Particulate Filters are required to meet Euro V/BS V emission norms. India is still on BS IV so DPFs are not needed to meet regulatory requirements. They are expensive parts and no manufacturer is going to put them in unless necessary. They also need a better grade of fuel from what I recall. AFAIK, none of the Indian made cars come with DPFs (cant say about imports)
