Default Keyless entry & security for Santro XO.??

Hi All,

Just got a Santro XO in chennai. The dealer wanted about 4.3 K for installing the keyless entry & security thingy.

The car will be used pretty much sparingly by my parents. So is keyless entry & security necessary in India?

Should I pay 4.3k to the hundai dealer?.

I am told that there are other shops in chennai that do can do the same. Don't know what the non-dealer cost is?

Ask the dealer what is he fitting ? the brand name is it MAX or COBRA and what all features are u getting. and Yes central locking and anti theft systems are required in india.

No chance from dealer... we have paid and now the ball is in his court. I actually missed out on the remote & security although it was in my list. (there was to much crap talk when negotiating)...

no matter you paid him.
but until he gives you the product, the sale is not over.
so right now you can revoke your offered money and cancel the contract of sale and get your money back.

but thats just theoretical! in practical life, you are in trouble.

well, ask him the brand and model and price details (of the "thingy" he is selling to you) and tell us.
if it is of a good brand and appropriate model, then 4.3K worth of locking system doesnot looks a bad deal!

i'll not be harsh on you by saying that why the hell you gave him the money in advance, but you'd have been much more careful in dealing with such people!!

but now do obtain all the warranty papers of that product with requisite seals and stamps, etc.

also try to keep him on hold for some days tby saying that you want some better model of that type of locking device.

i agree with revharder since you paid up-front the dealer has you by the b*ll*s, the best is to calmly negotitate with him by finding out how much this actually costs in the market and also, getting the proper warranty and everything. Personally i've found getting accessories from dealerships is the most expensive thing ever, and usually they just get most of such kinds of things from outside and get them installed for you (sometimes even the technicians for those particular products are not their own)!!

I suggest you go for a Gear Lock. The electronic locks are easy to crack, i have found it out the hard way. The gear lock has saved my car 3 times of being stolen. However, as an additional security feature, keyless security is good. Go for Autocop.

well, getting anything more from the dealer is ruled out as I have taken delivery.

The dealer gave undercoating, teflon coating, fog lights, mudflaps, floormats kit, car cover, sun film

The on road price incl insurance+registration+road tax for this XO (metallic real earth color) was almost 4 lacs.

I had a audio head unit and 2 speakers. I got this fitted from an outside person + two 3 way pioneeer speakers + seat covers + streeing cover + cig lighter pwr socket + reverse alarm for a total of about Rs. 5000

This outside accessory guy had some indian (german collaboration he said) security system. I forgot the name. He wanted 4000 as fixed. It did not have the impact sensor, other than that it seemed to have everything like starter cut off etc.

I decided that remote security is not needed and since th car is for my dads use, i don't want it to be complicated.
