Any thoughts on price and availability .Also please recommend a good service center in Medavakkam area ( Chennai). I have used Vishnu cars for the 30k service and they are so-so . A little lazy and ignorant.

The Gear Knob of the Ertiga does get easily scratched. My ZXI (2014) had a scratched Gear Knob in one year and I got it replaced under warranty in 2016 from Pasco Gurgaon. It though only costs 300-350 rs. The service cost for 40,000 service would be in the tune of 6,000-8,000 in case your Brake pads are not changed.

If I remember correctly that sump guard was fitted in Bangalore, I am yet to come across any such job being done in Gurgaon or Delhi NCR, if it is available , I would definitely get it done.
I installed a sump guard on my Ertiga. It was made out of 3mm steel sheet used for truck body building and weighs around 7.5kg, and can be removed by removing 6 bolts. Ventilation to oil sump was a major concern for me, so I left few gaps at the rear side of the plate and on the other side of the sump. There is approximately 1 inch gap between bottom of sump and the guard.

Havent finished the work yet, I thought of using it for few days and observe the engine/oil temperature levels and accordingly will make few more holes if needed along with basic black painting.

Here are some pics. Will upload better pics when I get the car on top of a lift next time.

The final dimensions are not taken, but we started with a 3x2 sheet and after marking the holes to bolt on to chassis, rest was cut out.

I will post the final measurements in 2 weeks time.

Wonderful @Arjithin, Where did you get this job done? Was this done at a local mechanic or at a place known to you? I think it's a good investment and definitely makes the car safer. How i wish Maruti at least gave this as an MGA option.

Also I just wanted to ask the members here? Normally at what RPM does your car touch 100 KMPH in the Petrol ertiga. Mine has always hit 100 at 3000 RPM or so. Has been like this right from the start.

Got this done at a local bosch FNG. It can be done anywhere, as its a straight forward job. We used the existing holes in vehicle frame to load the sheet.

Costed Rs 3800; this could have been lower with a bit more planning from the mechanic's side; but thats ok.

I had seen same issue with my estilo. Is it a common issue with Matuti cars? I have not seen this with Hyundai cars. I tried blowing cold air from the defogger setting as well but it did not help. This makes night driving an issue in rains. My ertiga is hardly 8 months old for the rubber to get hard and always parked in basement parking for whole day. Any suggestions?

The thin water film is formed on the outside of the glass.

I believe Rajiv has a new Ertiga, so wipers should be good.

Here is a video of the problem from my dashcam. AC is on, not very cold, but almost same temperate as outside.

You can see that the thin film is formed outside as soon as the wiper sweeps the glass and any waterdrop falling on top of the glass is removing the thin film.

The wiper is Bosch made and brand new (1 week old) .

Now that I could see the video, I noticed what you were talking about and I have to say that this happens in my car too but every time this has happened, I have turned on the Heater, left at the windscreen position for at least 2 minutes to see the real effects. Once this "film" clears, I would turn the Temp knob to 50% and the blower position to cabin side and after that its business as usual.

Yes I think that should work too. It is caused due to a difference in temperature inside and outside the car. And this happens more so during the rains. Had faced a similar problem few months back while on the highway. Balancing the inside and outside temperatures did set things right.

Yash

But I have never seen such behaviour with Hyundai cars including santro and i10 grand. Really interested in knowing what different is there in Maruti car glass if known to anybody. I avoid or rather scared to drive any maruti car in night when it rains.

I do not think it has anything to do with car brand or the glass type. Like I said earlier it is caused due to difference of temperature inside and outside the car. I have seen it happen in all cars ranging from Honda, Mitsubishi and even Hyundai.

Smile Re: Maruti Ertiga : Official Review

Folks,

I have been enjoying peaceful ownership of my Ertiga ZDi for ~3 years now. Got the 3 years / 30K kms paid service recently @ an ODO of 27425.

Key summary of the work done
  • Usual 30K service with Oil, Oil Filter, Cabin Air Filter replacement & brakes check/clean
  • Wheel balancing, alignment & rotation not included as I get it done outside.
  • My complaint regarding driver side seat-belt not retracting quickly after release was attended to. Need to see if the fix sustains.
  • Interestingly the SA told me that the seat-belt replacement (if needed) won't be covered in extended warranty. Is he right? I was surprised to know!
  • Car was not water washed, but some sort of chemical wash was done. Results weren't bad! Is this the case all over Bangalore as my SA claimed?

The cost came up to Rs.6445/-. I hope this is the ballpark price range for the work mentioned above. Let me know if its higher than expected.

Lastly, I noticed that, Brake check & clean is charged separately from the regular service charge. Is this the case with all the service centers? Why isn't this included in the standard 30K service charge itself?

It happens with my Santro Xing, as well as Ford Aspire which belongs to my colleague.

Something which I have noticed for some time is that the Tailgate of the Ertiga is paper thin. You don't get this feeling with the doors, especially the front ones which are quite heavy. However whenever you close the tailgate it sounds incredibly tinny and flimsy.
