Well been munching about this and then thought what the hell; let me as well post it and get the opinion.
My Santro is very rarely used, as you know my Bullet, RD350, Jawa and Jeep needs take 90% of my travel time.
My car is now 5 yrs old and has done 29700 KMS. I last serviced my Santro around 10 months back at 29,100 KMS. As most of travel is with my bikes I hardly use the car. So you can see the car has traveled 800kms in 9 months.
I usually start it every Sunday and take her for a 2-3 kms spin and park her back thats all...if i am not in town my next house driver does this duty. Occasionally mom takes the car to visit temple which is the actual reason for 800 kms in 9 months.
Now my question is:
1. Knowing this will be my usage and its gonna come down once my Jeep is back...what is the service interval?
2. What other checks I should do since my service interval will be long?
P.S: Sometimes I just take the car to listen to my ICE

see to it that if you dont drive every alternate day just move the car neutral a lil bit to avoid flat spots on tyres.
keep air filled 2 to 3 psi above normal recommended.
use the AC if not used for 5 to 10 mins every week irrespective of the winter to keep the AC system in good condition. (its actually for the seals, O rings)

1. Sell her off. You don't seem to need her anyways.
2. If you do retain, then use it for a 10 - 20 km round trip atleast once a week. You may get it serviced once a year....no need to make this more frequent.
