Time limit for Free service.
- Is there any time restriction for the Indica V2 Service?
I was not told about this by the dealers. Now they say that
its mentioned in the service book that all the free services
should be done with in 1. 5 years of purchase of the car.
Is it true?
My car has just covered nearly 11000 Kms and given for
the service. Now its 17moths old.
A person from the service station just called and told that I will have
to pay for the labour also for the service.
Can anyone advice?

- Hi Ajan,
> Is there any time restriction for the Indica V2 Service?This is for any car. The free services usually have a km as well as
time period associated with it. This in fact extends to regular
services also. The policy is that even for low running cars, service
should be periodical.

years because the warranty of an Indica is for that long. If the
warranty is for 1 year, your free services should be within that
year. This has been the general policy of the car companies. The cost
of the service is given by the companies and they would insist on the
km or time schedule to be adhered.

consider that fact. After the 18 months period, you have to pay for
the labour charges also.
