Maruti Suzuki has every now and then proved that it is a customer centric organisation and that is reflected not only on its line of products but also on its services it provides to its customers.
To support customers during nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, Maruti Suzuki India Limited(MSIL) today announced a series of steps for the extension of warranty and service of customer vehicles.
For customer vehicles, whose free service, warranty and extended warranty are scheduled to end in the period from March 15, 2020 to April 30, 2020 are now being extended up to June 30, 2020.
|Schedule to expire between||New Expiry date|
|1. Free Service||March 15, 2020 and April 30, 2020||June 30, 2020|
|3. Extended Warranty|
Since the nation wide lockdown people have unable to get out of their homes other than for attending for essential services or supplies. Many people whose cars might be due service in the given period might fail to make to their respective service centre. Hence such a measure might help customers to avail the due service outside their usual stipulated time.
Other than that, Maruti Suzuki have enlisted some tips so that one can look at the maintenance of their car staying at home. Thses are:
- Tip 1
Start the vehicle and keep the engine “ON” for 15 minutes. Do it once a month to keep the batter in good condition.
- Tip 2

- Tip 3
Move the vehicle forward and backward slightly to check the tyre pressure. It will avoid the tyres from getting damaged.
- Tip 4
Handbrakes could be disconnected and tyre stoppers can be placed instead.
