Hi All, I am having trouble with my new Maruti Ritz Vdi. Currently it is at 15000 kms and it has never returned me mileage above 15.5 even on the highway... I have complained regarding this to all MASS but they simply try to convince me that the mileage is correct and dont do a proper checking. The only thing they did was clean the air filter (which i have done myself many times) and loosen up the hand brake!! ?? they told me that a tight hand brake would slow down the vehicle and cause low mileage. How i checked my mileage: 1. I used full tank to full tank method. 2. I travelled from Bangalore to ooty via the longer salem route during early morning. No traffic, perfect highway for most part. Drove at around a constant speed of 120-130 for most part upto avinashi, and then in and around ooty. Total Mileage returned 15.5 kmpl 3. Travelled from Ooty to Bangalore via mysore, maintained constant speed of 80kmpl and some Bangalore Domestic Driving. Mileage returned 15.5 kmpl 4. During my day to day traffic stop and go within bangalore city, mileage returned is around 12 kmpl. Any idea why this is caused, anyone out there experienced the same, and please let me know a good service station who actually are not afraid of checking my car using some diagnostics.
Suzuki China will give a cosmetic update to the A-star (Sold as the Alto in China) very soon. There are various spy pics doing rounds of the updated A-star from China. The ultimate question here is that if Maruti brings this to India, will it help boost A-star sales? We all know the A-star aint doing that good in the Indian market. Maruti still sells it here because basically India is the export base for the A-star which is sold as the Alto or Celerio in other international markets. Well here are the pics of the China market A-star update, looks quite nice to me, I feel it will give a boost to the sales in India if it comes here.
After the launch of the new Dzire, Maruti did not stop production of the older model but kept it alive by making it available only for the taxi market or fleet operators by badging it 'Tour' . The Tour is a bare bones Dzire stripped of even the basics like body coloured bumpers, door handles, central locking and even the left side door mirror Now, however, due to overwhelming demand and long waiting periods for its new Dzire, Maruti has made the Dzire Tour available to private car buyers as well.Also, for an estimated Rs 12,000-15,000, customers can get the front and rear bumpers painted, along with the door handles and the wing mirror. To get central locking, the left wing mirror and other accessories installed, buyers will have to shell out extra. Swift Dzire Tour prices (Ex-showroom, Mumbai) Diesel: Rs 6.16 lakh Petrol: Rs 5.12 lakh
Folks, which is the best budget hatch currently available in the country? The Tata Nano 2012 or the long-in-the-tooth Alto and Spark? I personally like the K10 and the way it drives but the interior and the 1990s styling now look a bit boring as compared to the fashionable new Eon which is again an okayish car with poor driving dynamics. What's your say?
