My Corolla 2009 model has done 100,000 KM. I went to 3S dealership. They changed the fan belt and charged Rs. 5400. Later I learnt that this belt is available in market for Rs. 350 and lasts well over 70-80 K. Is 3S charging too much???
Yes 3s charges too much but the catch is that from 3s it's guaranteed you get original part but from outside you are never know and other point is mostly they have outdated products and 3s has latest parts.

The fanbelt available in open market costs <500 and lasts 80,000 KM. So what is the point in getting it from 3S?
Seriously... I went to Toyota 3S they told me to change the fan belt mine is just 40K kms XLI 2011 Ecotec. They quote mein Rs.5400/- for fan belt which I refused. went to my local mechanic and purchased original BANDO USA fan belt for Rs.480/- only
Genuine fan belt lasts ~ 100,000 KM, why did you have to change after only 40,000 KM?
