I am at 15k and only noise I experienced was squeaking sound like old sofa from the tray in the back. This was fixed by taping the tray locks about 2 months back. It is coming back now. The glovebox and dashboard area rattles were found to be due to stuff lying around loosely even sunglasses in the holder above makes noise and it seems to be coming from the window. Just ensure that glass case in head unit is empty and confirm back if you still get the sound.

It is interesting that Rattles is a phenomena that tags alongs with any Maruti product whether premium or not. I know this from two previous cars with them. It is amusing they cannot do much about it even now.

I have my s-cross in trivandrum and there is one other 1.3 (brown) in my same apartment and works in my same campus. Also, There is a regular white 1.6 Alpha that reaches technopark phase 3 at about 8.30 followed by a blue 1.3 at about 9 am. My colleague also owns a 1.3 zeta. So, that is 5 s-cross in technopark phase 3 alone.

Annoyingly, there is an s-cross with yellow plates. :( I will take a pic if I can find it again.

I too found them, and to my annoyance found that the passenger side seat lever for the reclining options fowls with the seat, creating this irritating noise. Just a dab on it to push it slightly away gets rid of the noise for a while and then it returns. :(

Gear to Explore is the tagline for S Cross, to be unveiled shortly at the Indonesia Auto fair. Expect the petrol variant to have the same configuration when launched in India,

Petrol engine will be the M15A - to confirm on the final output. Will come in both MT and AT variants.
Quote:
The power of the M15A engine to be applied in the new Suzuki S-Cross will produce around 100 Hp at 5,900 rpm and 133 Nm at 4,100 rpm just like the previous Suzuki Swift.
OR
Basically there is a bigger M15A output with 111 Ps and 142 Nm like fitted in the previous Suzuki Ignis, but with a high 11:1 compression ratio.
OR
For Indonesia version, probably it will apply a lower compression ratio to produce 109 Hp and 138 Nm.

I have had a plastic rattle / buzz from front left corner of dashboard in 1300-1800 engine rpm range (its a 1.6 delta) almost since day 1. It vanished after 2nd service when that corner was opened and packed with foam. Its back now - intermittently.

OT:

Slightly OT question i like to ask.i have scross 1.6 alpha bought in feb 2016.to be honest i am more than happy with performance.at the time of booking dad opted for maximum loan which calculates to emi of around 24k/month. Now my dad and i had discussion over this and we came to conclution that we are not using the car regularly( 7k km in 6 months with 90% driving in city) somehow dad are now looking to sell the Scross and thinking about buying hatchbacks like swift or grand i10 and invest remaining money in our business which is the best bet according to him.as expected i am not that happy with this saga but somehow i have to accept the fact that we are not able to justify the price we paid for it. Right now i want to know is there any way i can reduce the current emi by paying additional amount to the bank? I just want to reduce the emi so that i can convince my dad to keep this car

Thank You
Update - The part arrived within 48 hours (inspite of the heavy flooding fiasco in Gurgaon)

But I managed to drop the car yesterady for the change. It took about 4-5 hours (including a complemenatry wash). Issue resolved - the sound has disappeared completely.

This was the first S-Cross to get the "dead axle" changed at Pasco Gurgaon, although they claim to the biggest Nexa dealer.

I will post a copy of the bill later, but was told that the part costed INR 18.xx k

The infotainment system seems different to the one that is on offer here. There are 5 lights below the screen, unlike the placement on the right side for the indian version.

Dear friends,

Need your suggestion and may be any of you had a similar observation as under:

My SCross was recalled for brake work, and though brake never felt like an issue, but after the recall and work it seems the sharpness of the brake is gone.

I now have to press the brakes harder and even then I feel brakes lack teh punch and effect they had earlier.

I discussed the issue with service centre and the response I got was, "earlier brakes were bad as they were bringing the car to sudden stops, that is what has been rectified". Does this seems acceptable?

It is now very hard to prove that brakes are not effective as the service center guys can easily push brakes much harder and say 'see it is working fine' :(

This may be a silly query but is annoying me. Not to mention the sound from dead axle is very much there is my car, they are just saying we are calling the experts from maruti to check that?

Thanks for your responses and help.
Regards

My S-cross has covered around 6000 kms and I have changed the bulbs to a 130/90 hella and the horns as well . The car is suprisingly fast and it does need a better set of horns .

The problems with the car is that the suspension is woefully soft and bottoms out at the rear . The steering is a bit vague on the turns and is not so confidence inspiring .

I'm surprised to hear that you are finding the steering some what vague. I found the steering is precise and inspire confidence in turns. The steering feedback is very perfect.

I have driven almost 20K KMs including very long highway runs and bumper to bumper city drives

There is something that I have noticed in almost all turbocharged Diesel engines that I can hear the turbocharger wheezing if I kill the engine too soon. Have experienced this in Nissan, Ford, VW but not in the 1.3 DDIS national engine. Any idea why? Infact in other engines I can hear a whistle when the turbocharger kicks in but have never heard in 1.3 DDIS.

I am really shocked to hear woefully soft suspension as a problem of S-Cross I have drove over 9k kms and has never bottomed out once. I have always felt the suspension to be relatively stiffer than other cars I have driven. Also, with respect to the steering - it is lighter than our Dzire's EPS but it not as vague in corners. I felt it to be pretty straight and very confident inspiring. The feedback can be better, but is not a limitation in any sense of imagination.

Nice to know there are quite some S-Crosses in technopark. But I dont think that will comfort him. In my opinion, if you love the car - just go for it. Why worry how many people have already bought it? Unless resale is the priority, one should not be really worried.
