Service kit includes the filters. I asked for intercooler cleaning as I experienced unusual lag at times (inspite of throttle input, the rev meter/speed did not increase like it usually does). Turbo kick was absent during those times. Even wheel alignment and balancing were asked by me( also recommended by maruti at 20k)

I think then service cost is quite justified. To compare, my Swift D at 20K intervals used to cost 6.5K without any add ons. Now, I had mineral oil in Swift D and adding another 2500/- for synthetic, I think the service cost comes upto Ciaz's range discounting the add ons.

For a 10L segment, it's really good considering you pay similar amount for a VW or a Fiat.

PS :: Did the performance re-appear with the intercooler cleaning job?

The performance was affected very rarely. Say, in 1000km of driving I would experience lack of power for 10-15 km. It will get back to normal after a restart.

Post cleanup, i feel the turbo kick is amplified, can be felt sharper than before.

I too have the same question, did the cleaning fix the issue faced earlier.

With FIAT, the service interval is 15k / 1 year. The average service cost @ 15k on odo is around 6k (including WA & WB ) and @ 30k / 2 years costs around 8k -9k (this includes complete flush out and replacement of all the lubricants).

Cheers,
Pradeep.

No major issues till date. Some minor ones. Requires regular cleaning . The nuts used to come loose once in a while, taped them up, no problem now!!

In city driving, I am getting FE between 13kmpl (stop-go traffic) to 17kmpl (flowing traffic) with air con always ON in my ZXi+. Of course, these numbers are on Pune roads which probably have more inclines/slopes as compared to may be Delhi. I have a sedate driving style and my daily driving distance is ~42kms.

Petrol manual transmission FE numbers would be more for sure. But then you have to factor in the ease of driving, less fatigue & peace of mind which you get in an automatic. It's a trade-off....you gain some, you lose some.

Dear Ciaz Owners

Please help me decide. As i wrote earlier , i am too confused between the petrol automatic and diesel manual ciaz. My Daily running is apprx 75 kms.
Logically thinking , i should go for a diesel ciaz . But then the pathetic traffic conditions have forced me to look for an automatic which i am not getting in a diesel in my budget of <11L. And to confuse things further, in Delhi a ZDI+ would cost me around 10.8 whereas a ZXI+AT is costing around 12.08. My heart says extend the budget and go for an automatic petrol. Mind says , save money and go for the diesel. Here comes the third option, buy a VXI+At at 10.2 on road and have some of both the worlds but then i would miss all the features that i liked. I have to finalize the car in next 7 days. Please advise. Also , please confirm the Ciaz AT mileage in city for a Delhi to Gurgaon like route.

Thank you in advance.I hope, i will be able to make a decision soon.

Sorry to confuse you. But I would go for the Polo/vento tsi if i were you.
Zxi AT is the minimum barebones version worthy of buying, if you insist on Ciaz.

Vxi loses a lot of equipment that is necessary.
Ciaz AT fuel efficiency- City - 13kmpl Highway- 19 kmpl

My reason of not going with a VW or Skoda is the fear i have in mind of their ASS. Also i dont have a nearby one to get my car serviced there. So i dropped the VWs and Skoda from the list. Otherwise with the new Rapid facelift coming soon i am getting good discounts on rapid diesel DSG.

I agree on the VXI, it doesnt have the ZXI+ Charm

Don't you have Hyundai Verna on your list?
Please go through the Specs of Verna CRDI S AT. It fits in your budget.

I see that the Verna CRDI S AT has an ex showroom of 11.2 which comes out to be 13 L on road by adding Insurance and RTO charges

Sorry, I misread the price of Verna.
It may seem a crude option to you, but Tata Zest AMT looks like a better bet.
It all depends on your mind if it can overcome the Tata-phobia.

75 KMs a day means a lot and diesel AT seems the viable option.
In your budget, I see two options either MS Dzire AT or Tata Zest AT, provided you don't want to buy those Ghostly Mahindra sub-4 meter SUVs.

MS Dzire comes with 74 bhp mill while Zest has a more powerful mill and more features on offer.

Now I might have confused you further and have started a new war in your mind on Status vs Practicality or Brand Value vs. Affordability.

Actually only a diesel AT makes sense for your requirements. City petrol AT gives 9 kmpl in average conditions, will it be OK for you? If not, then drop petrol option altogether.
If I were you, I would book a Zest XTA and be happy. Yes, its not as long as the Ciaz, but Zest is loaded with features too, is spacious on the inside and rides like a dream over any surface. No speed breaker can touch underbelly of a Zest. In city conditions, it's reduced length is a boon and afterall, it uses the same engine as the Ciaz does.
High speed stability of Verna is poor, so whenever you would leave city limits for a highway run, the Verna is going to let you down. Plus Hyundais have not fared well in really long term ownerships.
Zest is going to surprise you at really high speeds. It just glides mate. Much mature suspension than City/Ciaz.
With VW/Skoda, you get the best AT with the most powerful engine. Don't ignore this. Also, there are many Rapids on our roads, I don't think servicing is as a major issue as we think.

I got my car remapped by Tune o tronics. From my experience, don't look elsewhere, if I sum it up.
