Kia Seltos – Service and Maintenance Cost
The Seltos owner arrives at the service centre where the Service Executive inspects the condition of the SUV. After taking pictures, he asks the owner if he is facing any particular problems. The YouTuber explains that there is a rattling noise in the front seat. He also asks the man to check the braking. Thereafter, the service begins and the owner makes a video of the entire process. The regular service includes changing engine oil, checking the air filter, oil filter, ait purifier filter, brakes, cleaning of spark plugs, knock sensors and general engine inspection. Out of these, the engine oil, air filter and oil filter are replaced.
Also, the rattling noise in the seats was due to a lack of lubrication at the joints of the seats. The technical recognizes this and applies a gel to all the joints behind the seat. After some time, he puts the seats back in place and the problem is solved. Following this, the car is taken for washing. The washing involves thorough exterior and interior cleaning. The YouTuber then shows the bill that was paid for this service. The 5th service cost the owner mere Rs 5,316.
