  • Hi Sanjay- I have a swift dzire VXI purchased on 30th April. During first service i got the following done - teflon coating on all paint areas, anti rust (chasis), coating on engine and zinc coating on exhaust. Have it done before the rains as driving on wet / flooded roads can cause early rusting of lower body. I spent a total of about 8000 for all these. For the anti rust, you get recoats for a 3 year period as and when required. For the teflon coating you get 2 more coats during a 1 year period. For the engine and exhaust coating it is a one time coat only.

  • unless your car is overly exposed to rain/water-logged roads, there's no use for both teflon coating and anti-rust treatment.
    15 days back i bought SWIFT glam and got both treatments done to which one MARUTI personnel told me it was all sales gimmick and waste of money as the company already does these things in all of their models.
    During monsoon, get your car's underbody washed and aired at regular intervals which will ensure no-rusting. As for outer body cleaning, dust out loose dirts first and then wipe clean with clean, damp cloth.

  • all maruti delaers are also offering the service of this pv coating at rs 1600-2000 and antirust coat for rust prevention at rs 1750 and it may used as and whn you buy car.

    you can negotiate with maruti to do this for your car free of cost. it is possible to save the money and do the work.

    our maruti at chougule has done this for my wagon R model two months back

  • Expert Hi,
    Its not mandatory to get teflon coating as Antirust treatment.It however does help to prevent the rust formatin if the car is continuously exposed to moist conditions..All automotive parts especially body parts, door hinges,etc which are more exposed to moist weather have coating of anti rust got done done during manufacture process.It will be good enough to get it done after one year of usage or during monsoon season with which you will have extra feel of security of the vehicle so does the condition of car.

  • DO NOT DO THE ANTI RUST COATING : I personally called up the plant manager/staff at Maruti Suzuki Manufacturing facility and enquired with him in very clear terms if it is necessary to perform an Anti Rust Treatment (FUCOT) etc..on my ertiga. I was clearly told that there is absolutely no need for any rust treatment because all cars from maruti are given adequate rust treatment for indian conditions. He even told me that if dealers are recommending it..we should flatly refuse it. he reiterated that all parts are given rust treatment....
