I think it is Maruti On road Service (MOS). This branding is usually seen on the Omni and Eeco vehicles used for on road service by Maruti service centres. I hope I got this right.

I think it is charged for any such requirement if called for at night time.
So it's on-road assistance. DO you think towing charge will be covered under MCP?

I am not sure because that question was unanswered for me as well when I purchased the MCP for my Alto K10 AMT.

I don't think it would be since the charge is 500 bucks. May be it means they'll come to that spot and help you out if the issue is small and manageable enough. Like battery issue, fuel over etc.

Just gave my Baleno Alpha CVT for the third "free" service (purchased on October 2017, done 10,100 kms on the odo). The service guy gives me an estimated cost of Rs.3150 (for engine oil/filter change, wheel alignment etc etc).

Then he goes on to tell me about MCP. Says if I pay some 4.3k extra now (which translates to a bill of close to Rs.7400), then my next service (at 20,000 kms) becomes absolutely free (only consumables will be charged which will be like Rs.300 odd).

It seemed a decent offer so I said yes. Then while searching MCP, I landed here. Went through this thread and dialled him back. He says I can avail MCP for up to 60,000 kms, and has promised to revert back with the cost of that.

Let's see what he quotes. Overall looks a good proposition to save money.

UPDATE:

Spoke to the service executive again. He says it will cost me Rs.21,888 for up to 50,000 kms.

Does this sound like a decent deal?

According to him I will be saving about 16k on service costs if I take this.

Somehow, I m not very happy with MCP. Infact this is nothing but locking your hard money in their account & reaping interest while we take the car at specified interval & get discounts on bare minimum.

I took my car for 10k service and availed this. By 25k general service, it was exhausted. By 30k, it's totally useless. Nothing covered. Not even wheel balancing.

If you are one of those hard riders, care a hoot about car condition & frequent visit to garage for breakdown, repair then this plan is god sent. For folks who maintain cars like prized possession, this is just utter waste.
