Fourth Service update at 18100 Km - earlier than the schedule, due to the 3rd been done at 9.5 k km + needed to do it before April showers/ monsoon!

Prior to service !

Experience at Service center ( views are in comparison to the VW service center that I visit frequently)

Overall - Extremely satisfied and rated 9/10.

- On Schedule both on receiving and delivering the car.( 9 AM - 1 PM)
- No fuss in customer being with the car while being serviced and additional
unscheduled minor work accommodated
- Got a discount( without asking) on total billing as I never take the offered
free washing.
- Very well informed SA.

The regular niggles like the vibrations on the glass ( when not fully closed), squeaking driver seats ( looks a foam issue) was not pressed for as I know there is no immediate solution to it.

Pictures during service :

This is how consistent the S Cross can be in FE figures. At 130 km after service,gives exactly the same mileage as just before the service ( so no tampering or software upgrade - a few reported cases)

With almost the same figures on ODO, my 1.6 gives around 10 kmpl less in Bangalore traffic I consistently get an average figure between 12.5 to 13.5 kmpl in pure city driving. Hell, only a very sedate session of driving on open highways gives me figures that you boast of.

The 1.3, especially on your car has some magic in it, Im sure No amount of pussy-footing can give me similar figures.

BTW, is the service center Bimal, Mahadevapura? Looks very very familiar to me.

During my car hunting process last year, abhinav.s and myself spotted your car in evening hours while it was coming from HAL junction. We were on a bike and I immediately told it was your car by just looking at those alloys To be honest, we literally followed your car until Bimal NEXA in ORR and the alloys look awesome in motion.

In approx. 19 months of ownership and crossing a milestone of 20k km, it is great city car with very little to complain about- both the car and at the Service Centre.

But I do the following while servicing the car,
- Will not use the pick-up /drop facility
- Will stay with the car during service and get things done if minor and not listed in job card( MASS is very okay in this- unlike VW where you are prohibited from entering the service area)
- Never use their 'free' wash facility - will always do a full wash at 3M ( thrice a year)
- Power shine at 3M ( Once a year)

Now am getting to know the meaning of reliability as my other ride is a VW


Crossing the milestone on a sultry evening in Bangalore city traffic,

...and here is the typical traffic seen,
