Below are the figures:
Initial Quality Study per 100 Vehicles-
Honda City: 72
Hyundai Accent: 114
The Data is not suprising to me, as I would have assumed Honda would have better finishing and product quality than Maruti. Hyundai on the other hand is quite close to Baleno.
But all those trigger happy fellow bhpians who were challenging the credibility of the earlier data, and calling the previous survey extinct, invalid etc. please read the 2005 survey which continues on the same trend as 2004.
This thread is not about how good VFM Baleno is, how great its engine is, or how dated the car is, or how it looks, or the cheap spares, this thread is about the JD Power survey which finds the most number of intial quality problems in Baleno in regards to its segment.
The survey for 2005 can be viewed at:
Click to englarge the picture, and you can see the stats. Lastly, lets all disagree, contradict each other, state our opinions, but in a healthy spirit. Let this thread not become another one of the Baleno duals, where mods have to jump in.

After 47 posts this thread still doesnít have any conclusion.
And venkatrx, youíll not get any clear answer if your are looking at any.
If you have a serious problem with your Balenoís mileage and quality, then you should consult/discuss with members driving Baleno in your city. Theyíll be more than happy to help you.
I donít want to start a new discussion on mileage but hereís a small example:
My car gave me 16 kmpl + last time on highway. AC was on right through except one hour (all put together) of smoking time. Speed never came down below 100 and never went up above 160. You can surely discount city traffic from Hosur to Indiranagar.
In city I never get any more than 8.5 kmpl. I cannot or I should not complain because we all crawl here. Thatís the reality and thatís the condition of our traffic. From a car weighing above 1250kg, I think itís pretty ok.
I donít know about your driving style or where you drive. But having a Baleno and continuously complaining about it doesnít really make sense. You should try to sort out your problems fast. Unless youíre trying to find excuses to get rid of this car.
Since weíre not going to get any solution or answer from this threadÖIíve no choice but to lock it.
