May be because last month alone- 64,143 people bought Maruti cars!

Thats almost three times the second biggest player in the market.

I dont think it is related to number of people owing a Maruti. I am sure that number of Ford owners world wide will be definitly more than this count, but Ford didnt hit the board..Must be count of "satisfied owners", who doesn't have other alternatives..

Okay i must have missed the news in the newspapers. But its next to impossible that team bhp will miss anything when it comes to the automotive world. Glad to know that the biggest car maker in India is the fourth most respected and reputed car brand the world over ahead of its japanese counterpart.
Thanks for putting this up aaggoswami.

At first even I could not believe this. Its only after reading more than one article that I came to know about this. MSIL managed to come ahead of parent Suzuki and global majors like Hyundai.

Its nice to know that Indian Companies are climbing up the ladder, First Tata's did us proud and now Maruti. I would rate it as a very good achievment for them and wish all the success to them to continue making VFM cars and also for their prompt and exemplary after sales service. I dont think there is any doubt in the VFM & A.s.s that they offer.

And some of the people who are surprised by this news, If Katrina (kaif) can be voted the most beautifull woman on this earth (which I believe that she is) I dont find anything wrong or surprising in Maruti's achievement.

Way to go : Maruti Suzuki India Ltd.

OT: All this reminds me of one incident when I was an engg student. I had read somewhere that Britannia is world's largest biscuit producer, mentioned the same to my friends and every one of them pounced upon me as if I had just murdered one of them. And I only said: "Why Not?"
Coming back, I feel proud firstly being an Indian and secondly, being a Maruti owner myself.

Congrats Maruti Suzuki!

Although most of us criticize newer Maruti cars for their poor build quality, inconsistent quality control, delivery issues, etc, most of us still fondly remember our M800s.

And one more thing to be proud of is that Maruti is an Indian company, although they have a Japanese parent company.

Congrats Maruti once again!

Thanks for appreciation. I really dont know the criterias involved!
FAW is china's first manufacturer and was established in 1953.

Yes the main reason for their success is that they keep on bringing VFM products with relative good mechanical reliability, pwertrain performance and After Sales & Service.

@anuragn, blue_pulsar: That made me proud too.
@ blue_pulsar: I think that we still love the VFM attached and the peace of mind factor.

Its a success story that has interesting history also. Suzuki once brought their dealers from worldwide to show them how the MSIL works and manages to sell huge number of vehicles in Indian sales terms.
Maruti, as this result indicates, commands a huge respect.

Yes, it couldnt have been more merrier for Maruti. Maruti must be very happy about it, and why not, they have achieved something higher than their parents.

Here is the link to news on Maruti's wesbite.
