Yes - you are right - the driver door is sort of a "sensor" to the AMT unit. If you have already observed, as soon as your drver door opens after the car is parked for a while, there is a buzzing sound under the bonnet - this is the AMT unit kicking into action. As long as the driver door is not shut, the car wont move forward. I experienced this first hand while my door was half closed and I hadn't realized this. When I went to crank the vehicle in N, it wouldn't start (or even go to N from D for that matter).

Soon, I realized the issue and closed the door and everything was back to normal.

Even I seem to be getting an avg of 10.5kmpl in Choc-a-block B2B Bangalore traffic. I had a good highway run recently and post that, the avg increased by 2kmpl @ 12.5kmpl for that fill up. The car felt a lot smoother to drive too. I guess the engine needs to stretch its legs occasionally to get the best out of it.

Default Maruti Alto K10 : Official Review

Got a rattling sound on my K10 AMT and took it to nearby Mandovi service Center.. Issue detected as the silencer tube has got rusted and is loosely connected and hence the rattle. See pics. They didn't have a spare part and have ordered one to replace. Not sure if it gets replaced in warranty. See pics.
Wondering if it is common or just bad build quality.
The car was bought in Dec 2014 immediately after launch and sparingly used with just 4300km reading

Just for completeness. I ended up selling the car before taking it out on for a highway spin.

Reason: Didn't need it anymore. Dad prefers the City, wife prefers an 8 year old Swift diesel over the year old Alto.

Nostalgia: I quite enjoyed the peppy engine and the Alto's ability to get into any gap, giving the Mumbai auto-wallahs a run for their money (Well that was precisely why I bought it in the first place).

The car was primarily driven in Mumbai suburbs, and exactly one highway jaunt. I would have hung on to the car for another 10 years, but it didn't make sense to keep it given the number of cars in the family.

Most memorable moment: Given the discussion in the family on buying a 'little' car, my then 3 year old wanted the remote control of the little car for herself.

Possible Improvements: Maruti needs to put slightly bigger wheels and better quality sheet metal on the car, also, start quoting more realistic fuel efficiency numbers.

Net: This car is still a winner for the budget buyer.
