Karan, I would request you to PLEASE contribute handsomely on this thread. While its SUV's forte to get dirty, I really like sedan/hatches to be as muddy as the pic you have posted of your Cruz.

And would you believe if I say, I need your permission to download the pic & use it as my wallpaper?

Thanks

That is really bad! It is so irritating because we can't blame anyone here.
Is your car always parked in the open?
I really don't know about this but will you be able to claim insurance in this case?

oh..oh, Karan! Very bad to see that.

I am sure you are going to claim the insurance for the glass.

Wishing the ride the original form back soon.

Yes the car is parked in open & since 3 years at this same very spot.

It is irritating indeed

Sorry to hear about the incident. Hope there are no dents on any panels. Hope it did not rain at your place yesterday night, that could have made the matters worse.

Please get it fixed asap.

Going by the pics it does look like the trunk got wet in the rain.

Hi Karan,

Good to note that your car is back and back to its pristine glory!

Any further break up of costs available?

Surya,

The cost break up is as follows; (Note: All figures are incl. of taxes)

Rear Windshield cost = Rs 23,584/-

^ Was covered 100% in insurance

Glass Sealant = Rs 2244/-
Glass Precoat = Rs 201/-
Labor = Rs 1573/-
DAM Window Glass = Rs 604/-

^ Was covered 50% in insurance so paid half of the above total of Rs 4622 = Rs 2311/-

Claim form/ Survey charges aprox Rs 2000/-

Total i paid was Rs 2311 + Rs 2000 = Rs 4311/-

Hi Karan, thank you for the information.

Any idea as to what is 'glass precoat'?

Sorry for too many questions.

A Glass Pre Coat is a solution which is to be applied on the metal surface before the application of the sealant
