    Vento TDI First Service - Only Rs 14,500/-

    One of my friends got his Vento TDI serviced yesterday. This was the car's very first service. The bill is 14,500/- Rs.

    Some of the items in this bill are pure ROFL stuff, like:

    1) Oil dipstick removed and re-installed - 44 Rs
    2) Idling speed checked - 67 Rs
    3) Vehicle check (what the hell?) - 130 Rs
    4) Vehicle front and rear measure (with a tape?!) - 202 Rs

    For more laughter, see the attached bills.

    Lucky that Fiat Linea / Punto service isn't that costly. I just paid 9K Rs for my fourth paid service!

    What are your views?

    Oil dip stick removed & reinstalled for 44 rupees?

    hope those who bought VWnever cared about the description mentioned in the bill. Thank god my colleague just avoided jumping in to the Lake (VW) instead he jumped in the Well (Skoda).

    hope his fourth paid service bill may come as 90k

    OMG!! This is super ROFL. The guy who designed the billing software should be given a Oscar award for being best Comedian. What all ways to fleece customers? My MJD bill used to be just 2-4k for the first 3 services.

    Dear Sunil,

    The sad part is most of the car owners are not aware and do not know many a fine things.

    They only are paying with a belief that everything charged is fair.

    But if you look deep into the line items you will find small items insignificant description, repetation of the same job with different title and amounts small multiplied twice and all adding up t a hefty bill.

    I think you should advise your friend to take it up with the service station to get the amounts paid back or take this up with the car manufacturer. This is very sad how customers get fooled.

    "I thank God that I back up a Brand that does not make me pay a bill for Such Things"

    God thank you - Sincerely that you have given me "brains to Judge"

    Well to all the car experts,Reviewers - my basic question are for many points - kindly also forgive me that my questions are basic!!!

    Well except: Engine Oil,Fuel Filter,Polen Filter,Air Filter,Wheel Balancing,Washing I am unable to understand the remaining!!

    Have been keeping cars Multiple Brands since Long that too for multiple lakhs in kms - but due to my limitation or may be having Less Knowledge on the subject cannot think that one needs to pay for the remaining.

    Thanks & Regards

    Believe me...if you ask people about this...you will hear them say that VW has indeed a very detailed service done compared with other cars...
    It's all in the mentality towards the brand...
