Pranava, very heartening to read your excellent experience with TASS.
Kudos to the TASS as well.

Any update on the Oil top up ?

Take that with a big pinch of salt.

I would not be happy if it indeed needed a litre of oil to top up in a new car at 2000kms. Please do check your oil level.

In almost 60000kms my Marina TDi has never had (or needed to have) top ups in between the regular oil changes.

Ok guys here goes...

Seems like the guys while doing the PDI at the time of delivery did not top up the oil! The service engineer while checking fluid levels noticed this and did the topup.It's definitely not an oil consumption related issue as the car has run just 2000kms or a leak concern. All the other fluid levels are OK.

So there you go!

thanks for clarifying pranava.
And thats why they gave you free oil topup!
I was really bamboozled as I had never ever heard of oil top-up being free.

Yep me too initially, but then assumed that during PDI the yard/showroom folk must have bungled it up.
Yet, it was a good thing the service guys looked into it and did not take it for granted as it was just the first service.
