Thank you so much for all the information. Now I shall definitely go. If you happen to go on any trips within the UAE would love to meet up and see your 300S.

How I wish this was true!

I went for my first paid service three weeks back and ended up paying 24k INR for the service.

To be fair, the stuff mentioned in the Chrysler service book would have cost me 12k INR. But the dealership managed to convince me that I need to do a full coolant flush and replace with brand new coolant, which cost 12k more.

Also, last week, the battery died, probably since the car is not being used much due to work from home situation. I looked around for Excide or Amaron, but apparently nobody stocks these for the 80Ah battery which my car needs. Hence, went ahead with a brand called 'Varta', which is of German origin. Costed me 10.5k INR.

Apart from this, the car is running well and has no issues so far, touch wood. I'm craving for a long drive, but it's not feasible in this current pandemic. Hopefully, we can hit the highways soon.
