Wheel Alignment is there in 2 of the pages. Once for 300 & once for 215.

@SirAlec, bimal asked me old battery for only Rs. 200 which i refused to give and it is still with me. The car does Self, plays music, LCD and even operate power windows with this stock battery, so i want to sell this at a little higher cost.

@carboy, the other wheel alignment you saw was for my other car maruti 800

I have already paid, so no point in looking at the bill.... SirAlec and other can you please recommend me good maruti service centers, so that next time i dont get cheated again. (pratham and bimal are now in my blacklist)

Please follow the new TBHP "Directory section" for details.

The listings there have been used by other bhpians and tried and tested.

I could not enquire the cost with other MASS as i needed the vehicle urgently and bimal was the one which was close to my place. I know many guys here had issues with bimal and even i had small issues once a long time back, but as it says "its better to go with the known devil than the unknown God", so i chose to give here

I am attaching my bill for both Swift and 800.


This bill is quite a rip off. I had the battery recently changed and got it for 3K (Amaron Go- modelwise price differences should be considered). Likewise, I can see they have oozed quite a lot of money from you. I always instruct Maruti A** to intimate me before they repair/ replace any part. I do make it very clear that if they repair/replace anything without my consent, it won't be paid. Honestly, I have had the worst A** experience from maruti for the past 5 years. Despite clearly mentioning that I don't need a wheel alignment, they tried to trick me mentioning that it was done accidentally and I have to pay for it! same with the air filter which I had mentioned not to be replaced. Well, I told that I am not paying a rupee extra for things I did not ask for. After all these experieences, I decided to quit opting services from maruti A**.

About the clutch, I have heard from many and I do agree to what you mentioned. I am sure, even a professional driver would tend to stall the car from standstill, at least once!

About the noise you mentioned, I think I have a similar problem. after getting no answer from BIMAL/ MANDOVI/ PRATHAM, I decided to give up and live with it.

I do not know which manufacturers' A** can be relied upon. I can assure you that many of them are crooks. You need to watch your back. I found a reliable mechanic who does a honest job infront of my eyes. I am quite happy and will continue to avail his services. Anyways, my car is out of warranty and hence I do not have to listen to Maruti A** crap about 'Warranty Void" if serviced outside.

However, I do not regret buying a SWIFT! It keeps me happy despite these silly issues and I intend to keep it for long.
