Ignis was created by Daniel30
So we had the Ignis first service today £186.30
4220 miles done and they haven't even topped the coolant up is this correct?
And do you think it low for such low miles?

Is that cold or warmed through?

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Hmmm. I might have wanted it a bit fuller than that. Have you mentioned it to the dealership?

That is low. It should be on the full mark when cold so check it first thing.
I would expect it to be an inch below the full mark when warm. Chances are the cooling system has settled since new and has had a little air in it which has now been expelled.
What does the manual say?

I started off high and worked my way down ever since :-)

Coolant expands when it is warm so should be below the full level when cold and on or about it when warm.

Phoned the dealer again and spoke to the manager who was apologetic and got it topped up for us while we waited

But just goes to show the health check list they tick off isn't worth the paper it's printed on :)

I put my Jimny in for a service, some years ago, to the local Suzuki dealer who is usually quite good.
When I got it back it didn't feel right and the suspension was a bit harsh. Checked the tyre pressures and they had only put them at 32 psi all round.
I assume they had given that job to the apprentice lol

I expect they just guessed at the pressures as most cars these days are around the higher figures.
Years ago (in the dim and distant past) I worked at a tyre depot and if you didn't know or couldn't find the pressure of an unusual car you just put them at 25psi as that was the average pressure then.
These days with low profile tyres( I hate them lol) pressures are well in to the thirties.

Dead right.
I have a first service soon on my Celerio and am only having it done to get the stamp in the book.
Worrying though.

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.
