It is normal buddy. It is part of exhaust system which is made up of cast iron to withstand high temperatures. Attaching a picture of the same in my baleno.

Any of you has any idea about the problem?
Is your steering getting locked after switching off the ignition ?

Has any of the MASS checked the steering system ?

THanks
Fuel economy of 16 is towards lower side. Also, if you drive the vehicle in high speeds (120+ KM/Hr), the fuel economy will drop.

I get more than 20 KM/L in congested Bangalore traffic (with AC)

If you have any other info, pls share
I have the same "issue" on my 1.6. Depends where your key fob is I think. I generally have it in my right pocket and get this message. So I take it out of the pocket and get it close to the bonnet and the message is gone.
I think the same thing was highlighted by someone in this forum too.

One solution to this is keep the key fob in this small compartment on the right hand side. I find that things work well when the fob is kept here.

Ideally, the start system should work as far as the key is anywhere in the passenger compartment.
I typically keep the key in my bag, which will be in the back seat most of the times.
May be changing the keyfob batteries will help.

I had faced serious starting issues when I placed the key fob in the small compartment below the push button start. Couple of occasions, the car refused to start giving the display "Key Fob is not detected".

Took up the matter with service and I was advised to keep the key in the cup holder near the hand brake. It is perfectly fine till date (8 months) if the key is placed there..

Last month I tried to start the car with key fob in the right compartment near the start button. Just to see if that problem persists. Most of the time it started without any problems, but didn't start once and gave me the same error. "Key Fob is not Detected".

I'm not talking chance and do not want to get trapped in traffic with the car refusing to start.. So, as advised by service center, keeping the key fob in cup holder (Near hand brake) and it's perfectly OK there.

Please refer my original post on this issue at the following link on this forum.

I have also tried the keys in various positions inside the car. The issue I faced was ONLY when the key at the compartment near the push button. Car will start in (may be 99% of the cases). But, it refused to start precisely on 5 occasions when the key was there. So, taking no chances and keep it in the cup holder. Need peace of mind

Not sure if the below recall has anything to do with the S-cross in India.

Suzuki issues recall for S-Cross SUV for incorrect seat stitching


Suzuki has issued a recall for its small S-Cross SUV after it was discovered that the front seat back may have been assembled with incorrect stitch seam spacing.The recall affects 3755 examples of the S-Cross built between 2014 and 2015.The car maker reports that the stitching on affected S-Cross’ may not meet the manufacturing control values around the area of the side airbag.In an accident, the trim may be too strong to tear open, meaning the airbag may not properly inflate. Should this occur, the risk of injury to the vehicle’s occupants is greatly increased.This is the second time the small SUV has been recalled this year. In february, the Japanese car maker had to call back a number of S-Cross and Vitara models over fears its rear axle bolts may become loose.

I mostly do sedate highway drives and easily fetch 24-25 easily no matter whatever is the load. But, during last couple of weeks I have done couple of pretty long drives including one to Munnar and all these were not relaxed rides. With 5 people on board and boot full of luggage, doing speeds averaging 100+ and including lots of ghat sections, the worst I could manage was 21 kmpl.
Even your worse mileage is very impressive, compared to what I am getting
! I have just completed 3200 kms in 4 months, and my second service is 1800 kms or 2 months away. What should I do? And how should I put this mileage question to the service technician. On first service, when I had asked him about it, he said today's modern machines are well calibrated and only driving style determines mileage. I should not worry about oil filter and air filters for the first 10,000 kms, was what I was told.

Can anybody recommend a good service station in Gurgaon. My first service was done at Apra sec-14.

Another thing that has come up is that my central locking alarm starts hooting for no reason whatsoever. It happens during a particular hour and goes on continuously 6-7 times. Is anybody else experiencing the same??

Thanks again.

Congrats on the 1.6
Its sure is a beast.

Hippo is a humble 1.3 forged at a time when the 1.6 was priced insanely.

Good to see that this thread is moving such a rapid pace, thanks to all the members contributing here. Many owners have posted their short reviews in this thread instead of posting separate ownership threads! In fact mine is still in making and lying in the assembly line for quite some time now.

This official thread started by S2 and the likes of Sandygordon's, Sudeepg's, Volkman's are the threads worth reading and there is real kick in the one posted by Mi10. Thanks guys! you are the ones who have made S Cross an exclusive vehicle.

However, I personally would like to thank our Senior Bhpian Prajesh (kpzen) for helping me buy this wonderful 1.6L machine. My other car, ANHC hardly moves these days. S cross nearing 5000km mark in four months, half the time I was out of country!

Prajesh, that is the most Beautiful picture of any S cross till date!

This is exactly what I experienced during during my trip to Himachal in the first week of Jan'16.

If the car needs to be stopped during a steep climb, then bringing the momentum back needs some real expertise. In my case, the car was still within the official run-in period of 960 km during upward journey, so revving the engine high was also not warranted.

Had a real tough time on a steep climb with gravel track; wheel spin, traction issue ... had done such trails effortlessly in my Zen; even dodgy Indicas are able to move.

Perhaps the reason I find the pattern on stock Jks more suited for traction on non-tarmac/ gravel roads.

The first gear without the turbo had no chance, and with the turbo there was no traction since the wheels were being rotated too fast.
Had you gone further down to say Rampur from Thanedar and then tried to come back via same route, things would have been more difficult to manage. I've seen people struggling to climb on this shorter route even in petrol cars where the power is available just at a tap.

If someone can make it to places like Jalori pass in S Cross 1.6, it would need a commendable effort & lot of skill and control over the engine. Particularly from Ani side, from where even petrol cars need to driven in 1st gear. Though I would be trying this in the coming months may be with a support vehicle.

Yes, Maruti shouldn't have changed the grill.

Dude, you bought only one? I was kinda hoping you would buy an entire box of them and re-sell to the folks here who are desperately looking to ditch the chrome grille.
Exactly


One query here, should I get the engine oil changed at 5k service or wait till 10k as per manual.

If expense is not an issue then IMHO go for the best synthetic one in the market right now. I experienced an oil change (standard oil) after 10k @ 3rd service and the car feels like butter now (1.3 alpha).

It would be definitely healthy for the engine too.

Do not go for Synthetic Oil. Refer the car manual.. Manufacturer is not recommending synthetic oil.
