Diesel car batteries are typically double the cost of their petrol counter parts. So same applies for Ertiga as well.

I dont think Ertiga has any bigger capacity battery. It should be same as Swift diesel/SX4 diesel. Batterybhai.com quotes 7000rs for the same.

But if even minor bump can result in serious injury - then I am worried. Especially since the whole idea is that the kids will sit at the back. I have almost finalised the choice of Ertiga but this one thing is causing some qualms.
@Venkytalks - Congrats for the sane choice.

But, isn't the gap at the rear similar as any MUV with front facing seat you could have bought (Innova, Xylo, etc).

I think you are being scared for something which you should not. I would suggest you to enjoy the MUV when it is at home.

Received my Granite grey Zxi after NINE weeks from booking date. What i found galling is the fact that no feedback is available even to the dealer it seems. On 27 Jun i was told that no news is available and only on 02 Jul would any likely dates be available. However the vehicle was received by the dealer on 30 Jun itself and delivered on 02 Jul!!! It seems that the japanese "Just in time" concept revolves on the information being made available just in time. Anyways time to enjoy my ERTIGA

I took delivery of the car on 11th July -2013
@Kalinga, what proof has your dealer provided to you regarding LBT ?
Have you accounted for all the amount you have paid to the dealer v/s receipts provided by the dealer ?

Yes they have given a "DEBIT NOTE" with Debit No on it for LBT. It's a separate receipt. Also got 2 separate note/ receipt for vehicle value and value for RTO / Insurance etc.

Also got a separate note for Ex. Warranty.

I have paid 2700 extra. So the dealer sent me a refund cheque of 2,700.

Roughly calculated and found ALL IS WELL..

Did you paid extra for anything??

Please share. So that i can tally with my transaction. You can PM me.

I am not sure how comfortable this will be in long journeys, as I bought mine specially for loooong highway cruises. Considering the fact that my other car is a Zen Estilo, and I have made loads of long distance travels, without an iota of back pain , I am a bit skeptical. Only time will confirm.
I presume you have logged quite a few KMs in the car by now. Can you please share your long term usage experience on lumbar support, especially over long travel time/ distance. I am trying to finalize a car, but ergonomics and safety are my foremost criteria, rather than aesthetics. More so since I have had lingering back pain issues over the years.

Any input you have on this will be greatly appreciated.

Mine will complete a year soon and we have logged 15000 kms approx so far. We have done trips of 5-6 people, ranging from 100 to 1200 kms journeys, and so far no one has complained of either poor leg or back support. However, the front headrest is not something that some people are comfortable with. Longest single continuous journey for us is typically 150-200 kms before we take a halt.

I too felt the same initially. The angle of the head rest is slightly odd, but one get used to it after some time as well. Initially I thought that my head is flexed more and thus I started using very soft , neck-pillows for the front two seats. My dad , who sits beside me hated the neck-pillows initially and thus we had to removed them initially, but then he now has got habituated with the neck-pillows. I on the other hand, like and use the neck-pillows always because of the slightly forward bend of the head rests.
But saying that, these front seat head rests are much better than the extremely-bent ones on XUV 500 , which started giving me neck pain after half n hour of test driving !
I use neck-pillows on my other car as well,as it helps to slightly extend your neck,and thus in long journeys, it feels comfortable as well as gives rest to your neck muscles.

Unfortunately, I am having serious trouble with my Ertiga ZDi and it has spent more time at the MASS workshop than with me.
My Ertiga has clocked only 3055 Kms since January 2013, and I have written countless emails to MSIL and two identical letters, one each to Chairman,Maruti Suzuki India Limited and Managing Director,MSIL regarding the recurrent problem my Ertiga is having. Till date I have NOT GOT ANY OFFICIAL RESPONSE/LETTER from MSIL. My car is with the workshop for last one month,and I am plain disgusted with Maruti and its pitiful After Sales Service, the very reason I bought my 3rd Maruti.

I don't know whether I will write here, in this thread , about my problematic Ertiga or start a new thread in the "Initial Ownership Reports " . Mods please guide me. Thanks

Kindly do it ASAP, as
I am almost on the verge of booking an Ertiga . We can take some steps to prevent if it's possible.
Probably we can take initiative and pool all the problems faced by particular car in specific devoted thread, where each problem has a mention in the first post itself edited periodically.

Sorry to know about your plight with your Ertiga. How did this all start? What were the problems you were facing initially. Request you to share more details over here or better still start your ownership thread & share the link here (By the way do we have a niggles thread for Ertiga?)

Thanks for the response guys. I still love my Ertiga and miss it dearly.
The very reason why I bought it, was NOT served on two occasions that I went out of town on long journeys,and on both these occasions, I had to turn to my trusted Zen Estilo ( which incidentally is another car from MSIL stable ).

Please bear with me to prepare a detailed incident report and make a thread,and then put a link here.
