25,000 kms service update.
Got the oil changed - the mechanic said that the oil filter lasts 10,000 kms.
The battery surprisingly drank two bottles of battery water. It always does whenever we take it for its routine service and tuning. I blame the very bright interior lights and the IMID (which stays on for a minute or two after you take the key out of the ignition).
You can't replace the battery water yourself because for that you need to disconnect the connections and a friend did that on his own - his new car went haywire after it (the rev meter and speedometer stopped working, and all electronic systems ceased to work - the car was sorted out by the dealership and he was advised to get the water replaced only by official Honda mechanics)
Total cost : 3800
The brake pads will be replaced on the 30,000 kms tuning..
After the specs update of the upcoming corolla, I'm so glad we bought this car and didn't wait for that.
