  1. Is ther any chance to get the programme(ecm) cd of maruti Swift

    Speak to your Maruti Service center...they use a computer to do some kind of engine Scanning....so called smiley2.gif ....

    So they must have a CD of that software available with them... they would give it to you is a question... smiley5.gif


  2. 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.......


  3. 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.......


  4. At least one company is being truly honest to Indian in terms of launching International quality products. Unlike Hundai' date=' 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. [/quote']

    Hey as per my knowledge you should exclude HONDA from the list.

    I think they have been providing India technology at par with rest of the world.

    Eg, Civic Hybrid, Accord V6, New City, and new Civic already expected

    Please take a look at these links and then make a statement:

  6. hey friends ' date=' just wanted to know something from you people.

    i've just bought the 3rd gen city. ( to be honest my dad gifted me on my 18th b'day).

    i wanted to play songs from my usb. i was worried that if i transfer songs from my laptop (which maybe has some virus) to the usb and then connect the same to my usb cord in the system in the car , can some virus go to the music player and cause some harm. please advise as i am not very tech-savvy.

    regards saurabh.

    Relax,

    The Car Audio System and the ECU in the car only share one thing in Common...."The Power

    " or your car battery......And the virus will not travel through an electrical system.......

    If you are scared...just scan the files with an anti virus or any other security software before transferring them to your USB or MP3 player.......


  7. 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,


  8. Slight correction here Vivek it's wheel camber' date=' must be a typo! I guess that is done when you align the wheels

    [/quote']

    Sorry for the typo there....

    Yes almost all alignment Machines test the Vehicle for Camber also........if the camber out beyond the tolerance limit then the Alignment guy will adjust the same by either using a smaller nut on the Shock absorber or some people may do the extreme mistake of welding the hole in the shocker ....thats too risky ... mostly the front camber will need to b adjusted as the load on front tyres is more than the load on the rear tyres...viveksonkhla2009-04-29 11:56:27


  9. 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......


  10. 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.....

  11. 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"
