Hmmm, that is interesting since I was told the same thing of Sai by a friend of mine. I got my first service done by Sai, Kondhwa branch. The fuel level was slightly low, but that is Ok I guess. I reckon Chowgule is the best for servicing. will give it to him from now on.

Sai service engineers and others were more interested to sell me Teflon coating and some underbody coating and extended warranty rather than know what my problems were. Another surprising thing was I wanted him to put in a prismatic mirror, and the supervisor told me to buy it outside, even sugested a shop, when it was avlbl in Sai parts shop!! He tried his best I don't go in there to inquire. I wonder if I can trust these chaps for servicing again. A small thing, but better be careful after the small things have happened rather than wait for a big thing to happen.

my brother in law has M800 he always gives it at Chowgule, he is very satisfied with them. They even have drop & pick up facility at some petrol pump on karve road (will let you know details if u want - PM me)

also Chowgule had\has some offer for discount on servicing, free wheel alingment and such stuff dunno for sure (non-maruti user) but if u want will let you know

Chowgule is probably the best for Maruti, my sister always goes to Sai for her M800 and they always seem to run up a huge bill ...frankly nothing wrong with the car and I for some reason don't trust them (Sai on JM Road)

Hi all,

I was wondering about one more thing. When you pull the wiper lever, water is sprayed on the windsheild. Should this be only water, or some soap solution? If one can buy and put some better product for this, do let me know.

I am asking this coz in the Santro, it looked like a soapy solution, but on the Zen, it looks like pure water.

Thanks!
Simran

Hi There,

Dont use Colin as it tends to leave stains on the glass. Use a product called Weurth Screen Wash. should be available with most reputed accessory shops. Alternately use any good home glass cleaning spray. Add a capful to your water resorvoir.
