What tyres are best for ciaz? My zdi has done about 26k KMS and the stock MRF ZVTVs don't show any signs of wear and still looks like new. However, ride quality is pretty bad and feeling wobbly. I am planning to keep it in stock size 185/65 R15 confused between xm2/ bridgestone B290/turenza. I am looking for a superior ride quality and decent handling. Any suggestions?

Include Yoko Earth-1 in your list. I swapped them with stock tyres on my new car and the difference was nothing less than astonishing. Excellent grip, low road noise and smoother ride. Earth-1 tyres have got slightly thicker sidewall compared to Michelin XM2s and Yoko A-drives, to be more abuse friendly while retaining all the goods of the A-drives.
Btw, why don't you consider upsizing?

Cancelled my Ciaz booking as they were forcing me a different colour and variant, the sales guy said if I am keen on promised discounts then I have to be flexible with the colours and stuff. I simply refused to accept this and cancelled my booking.

Re-looked at the Honda City, went through the entire forum and studied the pro's and con's of the Honda City and then took the test rides. Somehow at the back of my mind there was always this crush for the Honda City, but the problems narrated by owners in their threads was keeping me back.

Negotiated the discounts to a hefty 1.21L on the V variant and we booked 3 cars with Western Honda (one for me, one for my friend and one for my brother in law), with my choice of variant and colour (luckily these were available). Rumor's state there are chances that all car makers will hike prices by 2/3% from January, which translates to around 30K.

Got the VIN number today and it dates to October 2016, I couldn't be happier.

Thanks. Yokos are cheaper than bridgestone/michelin.
I didnt consider upsizing as I am not sure on what to expect with different option. Besides I am little skeptical on suspension and didn't want to screw up warrenty.

Guys, 20K servicing is around the corner. Need advice on what all to change/top-up etc. Dont want to spend anything extra than what is there in manual.

Anything else apart from the below >

Engine Oil , replacement with Semi-Synthetic = 2000
Oil Filter = 375
Air Filter = 400
Fuel Filter = 1350
Brake Oil = 400
Coolent = 600
Labor Cost = 1500

Approx 6500 or so for the whole cost.

Do we have to go for Brake Shoe cleaning ? Any other add-on one has to take care of in the bill ?

Oh Yea, to make sure none of these are selected & added >>
1. Windshield Fluid
2. Mineral Water
3. Nitrogen
4. Wheel Balancing and Alignment
5. AC Pollen Filter
6. Any sort of Additive to Engine Oil.
7. Pollution Cert
8. Oil flush

Found the foll added to a team-bhpian's diesel swift > Daylight Robbery !
1. Calibration and electrical system check up - Rs. 350/- (labour)
2. Brakes service (brake pads, liner, disc etc.) - Rs. 100/- (parts) + Rs. 950/- (labour)
3. Tyre rotation - Rs. 210/- (labour)
4. AC blower cleaning - Rs. 350/- (labour)
5. AC disinfection - Rs. 780/- (parts)


Anything else to take care of ?

I paid 11k for the 20000 km service of my ciaz. :(

Yes, i did opt for intercooler cleaning and disc brakes cleaning. But I am sure the scheduled service alone (which obviously includes alignment and balancing) will make you spend 8000-9000 bucks.

PS: My 30k km service is due next week. Another 6k expenditure awaits.

Who says owing a maruti is cheaper now ? Gone are those days ...it's almost in par with other manufacturers.

Whats with the following >
Intercooler Cleaning
Blower Cleaning

What are the above for ?

I faced sluggishness at times(very rarely), the accelerator would be fully pressed but the rpm won't climb as it would normally do. The 2000rpm turbo push was absent those times. Once i restart the car, it behaved normally.

I complained it during service and they told me intercooler cleaning would rectify it. It has been 10k km since then, the issue did not come up again.

The Diesel Ciaz is really good. I felt it is more silent than the Diesel City and the interior feels better too.
Plastics are very tight- no rattles even in a 40,000 km run test drive car.
The only down side is the road noise. I think it is not a car wherein you can have a conversation at normal talking volume if you are driving above 80 kph. You have to raise your voice.
The mileage figures are superb- the SA claimed 20+ kmpl in the city with AC.

When did you hand the car for service and when was it returned?

What I find funny is in the labour rates in mentioned in the bill.

Intercooler Cleaning: ₹298

Blower Cleaning: ₹ 690

Opening the blower of the AC motor that is located behind the glove box (near the passenger footwell) just requires them to unscrew 3 bolts that hold the blower to the assembly. Once that is free they'l blow low pressure air and if required clean manually with a piece of rag.

Coming to the intercooler, one needs to remove the bumper, undo the hose clips, remove the plumbing connecting the turbo and intercooler (manifold side) and then un-mounting the intercooler from the chassis. Once set free, they have to wash it free from oil traces collected in it and once done, refit this back.

Looking at the overall process which one is difficult and which job demands more money?!

Another word of caution Prasanna Sir, Intercooler cleaning IMO is recommended every 30K kms in the DDiS engines so beware that the SA may add this again in the bill when you go for 30K service. Keep an eye buddy.

I have never done this intercooler, Blower, EGR etc etc cleaning at MASS. I have sternly asked them not to touch. I do it myself. Same goes for balancing too (₹900) down the drain.

What is this "engine cleaner" - No. 4 in the bill?!

This the A/C blower cleaning. Not sure if they genuinely do it (Applies for both intercooler and Blower cleaning).

Got the rogerabs fitted today and I feel like driving a totally different car.

No more wallowing, no more rear sagging, no more ping pong on undulations. It drives like a European now.

Would update more after I test with full load on the highway.

Good to know. I am planning to order them as well. Did you put this in front as well?

A set of 4 would cost you around 6200 or so with free installation.
