hmm...this makes me think,

Synthetic oil would cost 1300*3 = 4000 approx for every 10K Kms oil change

OR

Normal Oil change every 5000kms would cost 1300 for 3 litres.

The head says mineral oil change every 5,000 km, but the heart says Mobil1 every 10,000 km.

You have to 'feel' an engine running on Mobil1, you will not use a mineral oil ever again!

Incidentally, in my earlier Swift Petrol, I used to replace Mobil1 every 20,000 km! I wouldn't recommend such an extended change duration in a diesel engine though!

Its 1008.73 INR per liter and for 3.1 litres thats 3127.06 INR in total .
Performance and refinement along with FE will make up for this additional cost that you are paying over the MGO mineral oil .

Went to take the Delivery of our Maruti Ciaz from Pratham Motors Queens road..Finished all the documentation and for our surprise the sales person says he cannot deliver the car today because the car is in the basement and it is flooded with water and we cannot do anything now. Please collect the car tomorrow morning! When I went out to check what the scene is..I was shocked to see how the Brand new cars, which are awaiting delivery are left just like that where the water level has reached so high that half Tyre is in the water ! This happened when it rained last week.

Our Ciaz was parked inside the garage which is seen in the 5th picture.But what about others cars which are left to sink in the water ??

There was absolutely no effort put by anyone to pump out the water. When these guys do all these at their showroom where a customer can see what is happening..Wondering what these guys do behind the back of customers!

I hope you do not take the delivery of the car from that dealership. And if you can, kindly write a mail to Maruti officials. If possible, send mails to prominent car magazines, and news papers. This is worth coverage. And before doing anything please get your money back.

The car was already registered hence we could not really do much and took the delivery of our car the next day. I will write an email to the Maruti guys lets see what the response is going to be!

IMO the dealer has to take back the vehicle even if it is registered under your name. They might have to change the ownership, and take a loss at it. You dont have to suffer for their negligence and utter callousness. But once you take delivery, it will be tantamount to your acceptance of the vehicle in its present state.

Couple of days back I have placed order for 5lit Mobile Devlac1 synthetic oil at 99rpm.com @ Rs 4000/-. Thus per lit cost comes to Rs 800/-. During last service too I had used the same engine oil. Worth spending little more . The drain interval can safely be increased to 15k km even for CRDI engine. I know people extending the drain interval even to 20k km without any problem. This increased drain interval does offset the cost of synthetic by a great extent, apart from smoothening out the engine and possibly extending the engine life.

I have done 850 KM after the purchase and have always used SHVS. Now this thing does not always shut down. In bumper to bumper traffic, it does. When I stop on highways abruptly (not really abruptly) after driving it in fifth, it does not. So I believe, engines temperatures are factored in for SHVS. Besides, it does aid in picking up. I don't plan to drive it without SHVS.

Attachment 1428507
An underage twowheeler rider rear ended my car at the same stop and the rear bumper got a dent at the same place. It happened when I slowed down on a speed breaker on a country side road which was almost empty. I never saw anything in my IVRM as it hid behind the boot! I think boot is too high. Now I check side mirrors before braking.

Hi, 3 months update -

I have done 6880km on my Ciaz ZDI. It has been driving like a dream! Took it to the highest point in South India- The Nilgiris. The car didn't feel stressed on the hills at all.

I have one thing that I have never experienced in any of my past 13 cars - the fuel efficiency never goes below 18kmpl no matter how badly I floor the gas pedal.

Nope, they have tie ups with Mobil 1 (http://www.amazon.in/Mobil-Super-5W-...bil1+synthetic) , Shell (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...nership-7.html (Comfort, Intelligence, Attitude & Zeal - Maruti Ciaz ZXi+ Ownership)) and Castrol (What I got on my car. They didn't have cans, but oil dispensers)

That's bad ! And I am not surprised ! I have shared feedback earlier as well. Pratham Queens Road are the most useless Maruti dealers I have ever seen.
Even we bought our car from there.

The only reason we opted for them was because they promised me a delivery within one week and because they were giving me the best deal on the Amaze.

As soon as I paid the money , the sales guy tries explaining ṭo me on how the petrol version is a better deal than the diesel engined one. When he realised he couldn't do much , he tried convincing me on how the vdi is the best option as alloy rims , wider Tyres , leather seats in the top end were supposedly useless. He kept on arguing on how I can save 1L by opting for the VDi. I asked him to shut up and let me know the VIN details. Then he calls me after 2 days and says they had a confusion and that there is no vehicle in the stockyard. Finally a mail to Maruti ensured that these guys wouldn't act smart

Even at delivery time , the car wasn't cleaned properly , it was very evident that those idiots hadn't even done their PDI properly as the car had a defective oil pump ( replaced later under warranty from Mandovi , BG road ). Moreever ṭhere were swirl marks all over the car. Santosh and Bharat were the sales guys I was talking to. Santosh even tried to make a quick buck by saying I need to pay 500 INR separately for which I wouldn't get any receipt 😀 these guys just dont learn

Useless is all I can about them.

Quick question. The manual says recommended engine oil is FS 0W20 which is available at around 400/ltr in the service stations but most of the owners here I see are filling in FS 5W40 which costs around 1000/ltr which is 2.5 times the price.

So we are going against what the manufacture recommends and we are also paying 2.5 times what is recommended. Is the 5W40 really that much better or am I missing something obvious ? Or are the service stations having a gala time pushing something that is not needed.
