I do high speed highway driving so I changed the brake pads voluntarily by 60K in my Swift whereas the brake shoes are stock. Plan to have a look at them in the 80K service and decide.

Brake Pads were a goner!
Got them changed at 50k service
The bill came to 7300/-
Fluid changes (Engine Oil+ Gear Oil)
Brake pads 1400/-
Brake fluid and Coolant were topped up
Clutch Cable was changed
Rest labour and consumables
Maruti Service used to be VFM once, Not anymore!!!

Do you have the bill for the 50K service? IMO what oil do you use?

With brake pad change, if the bill is come to 7K, it is good enough.

You have answered the cost problem yourself.

Brake Cleaning : 350
Rear brake Cleaning : 350
AC Filter Cleaning : 350 (Maruti says to replace filters, no cleaning)
Bonnet adjustment : 350 ( Unless you asked for this)

Total: 1400

So your net bill could be 6K which is pretty good.

Edit:

Missed the rustlic thing. Apologies. Corrected it.

Aren't they supposed to do all these cleaning under the paid service labour?? My MASS bills them separately only if its done as running repair.

Whenever I take my car for "paid service" they do these things under the labour of paid service only-
1. Complete body wash, interior vacuuming and bumper polish.
2. Cleaning brakes, lubricating caliper pins(only grease is charged)
3. Checking the car with SDT
4. Adjusting tuning, timing, etc
5. Cleaning spark plugs, air filters, AC filter etc
6. Thorough inspection and tightening of bolts etc
7. In the end, they apply grease on all doors and you sre good to go.

You have been billed for bonnet adjust and Rustlic spray-what the hell is that??

@LeoShashi: Where do you give your car for servicing at Ranchi. I will ask my dad to give his Dzire there. Sounds great VFM if that is the case.
The Ritz that I Have is in Bangalore with JH registration and over here everything is billed separately.
Here, if we ask them to check for Rattles, they will charge a separate 300 rs
Situation at the showroom service centre is even worse

I can understand your plight. Here also we have authorised dealer(I hope you have guessed its name ) who is exactly like the ones you have mentioned at Bangalore.

I get my cars serviced at M/s Maruti Automobiles. The two SA's there are absolutely gem-Mr Dhiraj and Mr. Yadav. You can tell your dad to just meet them and give them my reference. They know me by my name and if in doubt-just say-"Golden 800 waale owner". I am sure they won't disappoint you. Even without any reference, they strive to achieve perfection in whatever work they do. And as I have mentioned earlier, the place is known for its VFM and honest nature.


For more details about the place, kindly go through my ownership report at -Click to View (The love of my life: A 2000 Maruti 800 DX 5-Speed)

Regards,
Shashi

Sure Shashi, Will convey the same to my dad. Thank you so much for the reference.
And yes, have gone through your ownership post . Even we have a 1997 Maruti 800 done about 1.5 Lakh kms and your ownership report is an absolute goldmine for any 800 Owner.

I have only used the OEM and the Bosch ones
Not very happy with the Bosch ones, less effective and makes swiping sounds-- maybe i just need to get it tightened or something

Hi all,

Ritz CNG has become quite popular with Ola and Uber drivers in NCR. Does anyone know if MSIL has launched Ritz in CNG recently (factory fitted), the official Maruti website doesn't say so.

I have found Bosch better than OEM, checked both in brand new condition. Bosch is slightly longer and wipes droplets better.

Dear Sid
The Ritz is not available as a "Green" option. The CNG kit needs to be retro fitted. The cars available in CNG(factory fitted)are:

Alto
Eeco
Wagon R
Celerio
Ertiga

Surprised to see Ritz with 4K+ numbers. Is it because of any face-lift?
