Default XETA's First service coming up and Brake Issue..!

Hi guys,

Well today my XETA is 4040 Kms old, Since the first service will come up by next weekend or so..Just wanted to enquire What should one get checked up in a Indica besides engine oil change, filter change...!

Secondly,
Now that the monsoons are over, I have noticed that XETA's brake are becoming sluggish than before, Earlier the car used to stop immediately now the braking time and distance has increased.
I have noticed that the wheel bearning cover has got a rust layer and so has the Brake disc on its circumference.

Advice, How to get this rectified, Since today I almost ran into a donkey on the 34 Sector Area in Noida, the dumbo just ran in between the road..!

Ya , I understand the brake cover having the rust, but sluggishness in brake usage after the rains has me worried, What could it be..I don;t think its time for the brake pads to wear out so soon, On my lancer they wear off after 20- 28 K Kms..!

Wolf, have posted this point previously, separately. But here goes:

If you are getting an oil-change, Check engine oil level after you get the car back. The recommended level can be higher than the upper level on the dip-stick. Have noticed this on our Marina & Sumo.
Marina's recommended is 5.5 litres, but 5.0 litres is enough to bring it to the upper level on the dip-stick.

The brake pads are okay most probably.
In indica such problem is rectified by bleeding the system.
Most probably you have moisture/air in the brake system.
They will drain the brake fliud, put in new one and expel air from the system.
