    cd

    Speak to your Maruti Service center...they use a computer to do some kind of engine Scanning....so called .... So they must have a CD of that software available with them... they would give it to you is a question...
  3. Buddy in modern cars there is enough under body treatment done by the manufacturers to avoid any kind of rust.....just jack up your car and look under it... if it has a rubber like coating all over the under body you don't need to spend extra money for that quoting......just get the car coated with Dupont Care product...and that will be all.......
  4. Fiat launches 'Grande Punto' for Rs 3.99-6.11 lakh Excellent news....excellent pricing..... http://www.indianexpress.com/news/fiat-launches-grande-punto-for-rs-3.996.11-lakh/477755/
  5. Just checked out the Honda jazz site..... So here are my observations... Style: Nothing great..features that are available in most of the hatchback available...and One his I couldn't stop laughing at was....3 stop door closing....(Come on...Fiat Palio from the first generation had this feature.) I liked the front two seats though...they look classy and comfortable..... rear seats claims will seat three...but with 60 40 strange looking split..I guess it can only seat 2..the third passanger will be uncomfortable... Safety: only two front airbags ....I20 has 4 with 2 on sides....... rest features are similar to i20.... Performance..a good engine...that's all the car as..... Pricing: Hmmmm.....Its Honda guys...it had to be over priced...... the car is practically imported ...with very less localization so don't expect Honda to subsidies the car for Indians.......
  6. I have been getting "Male ware" alters every time I log on to the forum for the past 3 days...... Request forum moderators to look into this....
  7. Check out the fuel injectors....and spark plugs....if they are fine ...then go ahead with clutch plate replacement...but this would be the last resort.....depending upon the KM covered by the car and your driving habits....
  8. Please take a look at these links and then make a statement: http://automobiles.honda.com/ http://www.honda.co.uk/cars/
  9. At least one company is being truly honest to Indian in terms of launching International quality products. Unlike Hundai, Honda,Skoda, Toyota and Suzuki, who mostly launch the product in India when its is close to the end of its product life. Offering midiocor products to Indians and charging premium. I wish we can have International quality products from Auto makers here in India.
  10. 1. Absolutly no respect towards other people using the road. 2. "Mine is bigger than yours" attitude. 3. No discipline in any walk of life. 4. Sadak mere baap ki hai........
  11. I can't think of any useless feature...but I think we have an overused feature in the car....especially in India...."THE HORN" ......Honk...Honk....Let me go ...my car is faster than yours...Honk...Honk....you son of B%^$% ....Honk....Honk....
  12. According to The Times of India, the Honda Jazz will be sold in India with a price tag of Rs. 7 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It would apparently be a high price for a car in a segment that features Maruti Swift and Skoda Fabia. But the VP of marketing at Honda Siel Cars India, Jnaneswar Sen explains,
  13. Please go to the above links.......the list contains the details on the Approvals ....and Compliance to Central Motor vehicle Act 1989.... Please read...
  14. Look into this link for an approx Idea of Prices .... http://www.carwale.com/accessories/exterior/search.aspx?categoryId=0_2_
  15. Take a look at this link.. it contains a list of all Garware products....along with pointers to which do and which don't comply with MVA. http://www.garwaresuncontrol.com/products/pdf/auto_pdfs/car_packs.pdf You have to chose the best solution for your problem.....I would suggest ...look at ICE cool..for Indian summer conditions...
  16. Try Garware... I got it fixed two yrs back...@Rs.1000/-....with 50% visibility .....at sides and 70% visibility at the back....works fine and lasts long........ Try this link: http://www.garwaresuncontrol.com/products/pdf/auto_pdfs/ice-cool%2050.pdf
  17. A sheer case of not taking care of the tyres..... The wheels need alignment every 3 to 4 thousand KM ....with tyre rotation done every 5 to 6 thousand km...... Maintain good tyre pressure and this will take care of your problem..... This time before replacing the tyres.....take the car to alignment shop and ask him to check if Chamber of the car is out...if thats the case this explains the Noise and tyre worn from the inside......
  18. A scary title.......Great piece of information though...
  19. Let me try and solve your problem , though I cannot guarantee...but this may lead you to some conclusion...... Please elaborate point one and two in your first post..... Lets do a quick diagnose if you want....
  20. You should have quashed the service center guys the first time this problem was not removed.....You are allowed to take a test drive of the vehicle before you make the final payment after service... or may be you belong to the class of people who sit at home waiting for the Service center people to collect and drop the car back at your place... Next time take your car for a service and make sure that the service center guys note the issues in the job card...ask for a printout of the estimate around the job card.... and when you go to collect your vehicle ....make sure that you check each and every job mentioned ....against the work done.....do not clear the payment till the time they resolve your issues........they are answerable to you till the time you have stopped the payment....no one will even look at you after you have cleared the payment and taken delivery... Remember...so called good customer service is a way to make you complacent....you are taken care ...so that you don't use your brain and don't complain.....ever noticed the service center guys getting pissed of when you question them about why this was done to my car.....they are there to make quick money.....and they will do anything to make a quick buck....they don't care about your vehicle ....they are bothered about ...vehicle turnaround time and... profitability.... Its your car...your money....you have to fight for it....and make sure people charging you..... deliver what you want..... viveksonkhla2009-04-28 08:48:16
  21. Hi, You accidently drove over the rubber white paint line deviding the lanes. Don't worry ..... Tyres lose traction momenteraly when they spin over the white lines. Relax....
  22. Just saw the VW add in times of India......in my opinion....its creativity going down the drain.....after creating such a hype over depreciation....they royally F&*^@ the whole mileage they could have got out of the add campaign.... their is no Wow factor in the complete advertisement.... instead they could have done better by just putting a picture against a white backdrop....that could have at least allowed people to take a good look at the car.....this is called "advertising train wreck"
  23. This mentality is precisely the reason Maruti has been pushing 800 junk to Indians successfully for past two decades.
