Even the suspension is much better in comparision to my Swift and soaks up bad roads very nicely

I will try to pen down a review later. As of now busy staring at my beauty
Congrats raj for the new Car.

Wish you happy & safe miles.

Even i did not put any filter in AC. As the dealer quoted Rs 1400 for that.
Now i need to check again.

Today i discussed with a accessories guy for floor lamination. Now they have another material for lamination. Thick regine type. They are using Velcro for sticking it to original floor carpet.

He is asking 2800 for Ertiga. I like that material in comparison to transparent polythene type material.

I got the transparent one for approx 1100, which was thicker than the regular sheets. It is still fully intact (no damages) after 11 months of daily use.

But somewhere here in this thread, a member reported that the AC filter is around Rs.400.

Kindly confirm.

Did anyone install a front driver Armrest in Ertiga?

I am seriously considering one. Where in Pune I can get an armrest for Ertiga?
Buddy the AC filter is for Rs 350/-, the other day i got it installed in my SX4 from the Maruti Dealer. Its just a min job.

Such a Shame in INR 10+ lacs car Maruti is not even providing air filter.

Just get it done, as the filter protects dust entering into the cooling coil and blower.

I have a question for Diesel Ertiga owners. What is the Tyre pressure you people are maintaining ?

I mostly drive with 1-2 people on weekdays and 4-5 on weekends. full load of 7 is going to be very rare.

So what is the best pressure for this combination ? I might switch to Nitrogen this weekend.

Congratulations, Wishing you many many happy and safe miles, we will wait eagerly for the ownership thread and pictures. I am taking my ZDi on Sunday, delay from the Bank. ..

Manufacturer recommended pressures aren't appropriate?

What accessories you've added? AC filter ?

Thanks a lot.
the reason why i asked for air pressure is i saw three different values written. so was wondering if owners here have some preference on air pressure which works for different loads

i took the basic kit which included basic floor mats, ac filter, puncture kit, wash liquids etc.

i don't know why they don't give something that costs 350rs for free but then i won't loose anything either by buying it.

i filled nitrogen in all Tyre with 32 air pressure.
Till date i am maintaining that only. No issue till now.

My Ertiga ZDI Alloy Wheels arrived today- exactly a week after booking the car. Thank God for competition.

Thanks are also due to @Vid, @amalji, @Powertrain and others who helped, and advised me, and patiently answered all my questions. I'll open an ownership thread next month.

congratulations

I think most people who end up buying ertiga do consider etios as i did too

if and only if Toyota had justified 50k worth price in terms of better interiors !!

better dash and integrated rear seat arm rest can easily be accommodated in the current on the road price

If you prefer to have a copy of Ertiga's user manual, here it is. I searched for it on the forum and did not find it and hence posting it here. It's always good to have an online copy as well!

Thanks mods (especially Vid6639) for the wonderful review and other members for the excellent contribution to the thread with insightful details about some of the finer aspects of the machine. You convinced me to book the Ertiga - Zdi and I just received word that my vehicle will be delivered day after tomorrow!

I have been contemplating on installing a cargo roof box in Pune but without luck. I contacted Tropicool (based in Pune) but they just dont seem to have interest in selling the INNO roof box. Post persistent follow-ups, they said they do not have anything specific for the Ertiga nor do they have the brackets to install the BR 560 (that they have on their website - www.tropicoolindia.com). I also tried reaching out to the Bangalore based Thule official dealer - Methods automotive but with no luck so far. Please help me if you know/seen any dealers in Pune that stock the Thule/INNO brands.

Raj, your brown ertiga looks great. I have booked same colour, Zxi.
Have you gone for any accessories?
For me, the accessories sales manager was suggesting under body coating for rust protection which costs 4.5k and comes with 10 year warranty. He also told about few others like teflon coating, seat covers, door visors, reverse parking sensors etc.
