Hi friends, I need a suggestion. I am looking to buy the VDi+. Do you think if I change the rims to 16 inches alloys, will it impact warranty. I see ZDi+ has 16 inches. Hence thinking it should not affect warranty. Of course I will change the tyres from 15 to 16 inches.

Hi guys,

I am looking for Ciaz automatic. But I am not able to find any review in the forum. I am confused whether to go for it or not. Recently they launched ZXI+ in automatic. Does anyone has idea how is Ciaz AT? It's performance and mileage. Is it worth to go for it or not.

Mod Note: Please avoid typing like.... this...

After losing my previous CIAZ ZDI 2014, finally I took delivery of the CIAZ ZDI 2016 this morning, for 1 lakh lesser and with the hybrid technology. It worked well for me. The new car is butter smooth, loving the feel of it. Have swapped the alloys from the previous car, so it does not have any cosmetic change to my previous car.

Accessories planned:
Roof wrap
Sunfilm
Magnetic curtain
Number plate
3D mat
Video player


Issues:
Same problem in CAIZ2 - Glove box vibration on cruising speed, have to get that sorted out with sticky tape
The SHVS gives you an irritating and disturbing feeling inside the cabin, it keeps switching off and switching on, as though the car is malfunctioning.
I dont know what long term impact it will have on the starter motor and engine, I am sure it is not good.
It sports a bigger and costlier battery which might need replacement within 2 years.
Electrical loading the battery with accessories is strongly advised no.

Will get back with long term output, but I am seriously considering switching off the SHVS permanently.

Had you managed to fix it earlier? Please share your solution to this annoying problem (I'm facing it as well).

1 lakh lesser for Ciaz Zdi 2016? What is the final on-road price?

After coming back from 1st service, I realised that they haven't updated service checklist in the owner's manual. Anyone else faced this issue? I hope that they actually did all checkup and only forgot to update the checklist.

Anyway, i'm going back to get it sealed/signed by them. In case I have to claim warranty later, I don't want to get in to any trouble, with Maruti telling that I didn't go for service.

I had got the silicone key cover for Smart key from Amazon. It works without any issues and protects the key against scratches, water & dust.

That's not a mandate, so you can relax. Please keep all the bills in a folder so that you have proof you had done the services on time. Alternately, all the records will be available in their systems too.

I never had the services registered in my owners manual and still have availed replacements under extended warranty - no questions asked.

My car got submerged in the parking lot of my hospital at basement 3 and it stayed there for 2 months before getting towed away by the salvage buyer.

Of course I got it sorted out. Remove the glove box lid, screw out the inner panel from the dashboard and you will see packing which is not done properly, add a double sided sticky tape and you are good to go. My previous car had all rattles sorted out to zero. Will try and do a photo update of the process, this time.

I had bought the CIAZ ZDI in Dec 14 for about 11.2 I think. This time the Jan 2016 costed me about 10.5. Got discount of 74+x K thanks to the flood offer, exchange bonus, govt discount, maruti discount and accessories.

I am planning to get seat covers and a video player/tablet set up in the car, has anyone done it in the Ciaz, please give me the options I have.

My condolences Visaster. I read about it on the other thread.

I hope things worked out to some extent with the discounts and all.

Thanks a million for this. If not for this stupid noise, the car is otherwise quite a pleasure to own and drive.

I don't have any suggestions with regard to the video player. Do however consider these accessories. They're not too expensive and are from Maruti itself.

1. Rear sun shades.

2. Illuminated sill guards and the armrest and interior styling kit (the colour is called hickory brown wood and it matches the faux wood panel on the dash).

Have you changed the OE set of tyres ? If yes, balancing was done at that time ?
Did you check the tyre pressure ?
Most of the new cars which have their tyres over filled.
My Swift had 51 PSI pressure and my friend's Ciaz VDi had 45+ PSI, that too a few days after delivery.
Both of us faced issue of wobble during highway drives. Now, after change of tyres and 5000+ kms. after that, there is no wobble.

The tyres are OE Goodyears. Had checked the air preassure a couple of days ago, found it to be 51psi on all 4. Recommended 29psi filled 28psi, which should not cause the wobble. Will take it up at the first service.
