4. I see T/M oil being changed 4 times, 25k, 40k, 60k and 80k km intervals. And after 80k, there has been no T/M Oil change. Is this normal?
5. Last Service Recommendations are "POWER STEERING OIL LEAKAGE ,POWER STEERING NEED CHANGE". Any idea if this is complete assembly or only power steering pump?
There is every likelihood of accident repairs being carried out outside the ASS if the odo has been tampered. And quite possibly ownership not at all changed after the first, careful owner sold it at 80k. Someone drove it another 60k (probably reset it to 0 at 80k after buying and drove it, probably drove it like a rural taxi) and then sold it with the first owner's papers.

It didnt cost the dealer a penny to put it to whatever use he wanted, beyond diesel costs. He only had to monkey with the odo and resell it.

My bad, fuel costs. Though I am not at all sure why someone would use a gas guzzler petrol SUV for that long without being an enthusiast in which case it'd be lovingly serviced. This one seems to have seen a complete drop off in service after 80k km - forget doing it at an FNG, issues don't seem to have been touched all that much. Weird.

I have attached the service record of the vehicle here. Experts can comment on it.
I do not have a way to communicate with these members since I do not have PM facility yet. Is there any other way I can get in touch with fellow BHPians?
What puzzles me though is, is it a routine service schedule to change T/M Oil so frequently?

Looking at the service records, I believe the odo tampering has happened after last service, probably after owner company decided to sell this vehicle. What say?

I had a look at the records. The ownership is clean as evidenced by the regular servicing.

A couple of points struck me :-
1. Hard gear shifting is a recurrent complaint. That may be why the MT oil was changed so frequently.
2. Engine belt has been changed twice - the second time after only 20k kms. That needs to be investigated.
3. Steering pump noise and leakage
4. Braking complaint throughout.

Contact me on 9423005043.

Have a 2007 GV 2.0 MT. Recently crossed 1.17lac kms.. issues / repairs carried out - front shocks changed, engine mounts, steering fluid leak, lower arm replacement & AC compressor clutch plate replacement. I bought mine at 92K. Most of the parts on the list are common replacements on a GV as I understand it crosses 1 lac.

That's going to be always an issue when you buy a 8-10 year vehicle.
