Thanks very much.

Actually thats the first thing they suspected and checked. If the engine light comes again, they said they will change the brake sensor/switch.

When i checked that with Motorcraft noida, they found that there was some problem in braking system because of which ECU was disabling Cruise and Engine light was getting on. They changed small part at Driver footside and never faced same problem again.

Both air and oil filter is priced just under 1000 Rs for 1.6 S-Cross while it's under 300 Rs for 1.3. According to SA, fuel filter is same for 1.3 and 1.6 .
1000 bucks for a lowly oil filter element. Well, they've gotta pay for all the Nexa showroom investments, sales advisors coats and ties too.

1.6 in a Maruti car may use the 360 rupee oil filter.

Not sure I can make out where it is? Doesn't seem to be anything that looked like a filter there.

I think he's referring to this one:

Maruti S-Cross : Official Review-img20160824wa0004.png

And it does look like the filter's plastic housing with the hex nut outside.

That's one inconvenient location. Seems like you need to remove a tyre to access it unless there is some way through the engine bay. But using that route I can just see oil dripping all over the engine bay as you pull it up.

Hi,

I am getting the OEM alloys which has ran just 40km (according to the seller).
These are the grey ones, so from new batch. I need to know,

1. Whether swapping the OEM tires will be straight forward?
2. Do I need to take care of anything while swapping?

Most probably I will be getting the new shoes for my blue mystique in the evening.

Straight forward swap. Why is the owner selling it? If the donor car was in a crash, then the alloys may have been compromised, look for cracks or repair marks.

Just do wheel balancing and you are good to go.

Since they are OEM you need not worry about a lot of things. Just have the alignment and balancing done right away and subsequently every 5,000 Kms.
Other than that, take a pick of the brand of tyre's you'd want on your ride. You'll have to just choose the right size of tyre's

Thanks for the reply. He has changed the alloys immediately after getting the car. No accident.

I'm not going to get new tires. planning to swap my existing OEM. JK tires that came with my delta. Since my car has already done 6k km, was thinking about wheel alignment. This might give perfect opportunity to get it done.

Thanks very much for the replies.

Yes, I have used Shell diesel. I did not find much difference. I found difference in Reliance diesel though. Now I fill diesel only at Reliance pump.

It seems fuel supplied at Reliance pumps is qualitatively better than others. Fuel adultrartion is big problem in our country. While some pump owners can maintain requisite specific gravity for particular fuel even after adulteration and some others can con you by giving less quantity.

The total cost for third service was Rs. 5576. The items that was chargeable in the service are as below.
  • Engine Oil
  • Oil Filter
  • Wheel Weights
  • Labor for Wheel balancing and alignment
  • 1 set of Mud flap- Front left mud flap went missing a couple of days back
Since I complained about the wiper not working as per expectation, the SA gave me 2 packets of wiper fluid shampoo to be used when I do the refill.

Yes Naren, you were right. the labor was for wheel alignment and balancing.

As an afterthought, I think I should have left the alignment and balancing as it was After the experts at Maruti did the job, the alignment has gone for a toss - the vehicle is pulling to the left as I was driving to Chennai this morning. There is slight vibration on the steering wheel in high speeds as well.

I see that the steering is pointing a bit to the left by default which is probably causing the leftward drift. Not sure if it was wrong alignment or if the steering calibration has some issue. Need to check with Maruti guys and demand refund for the excellent job they have done once I am back in Bangalore.

It's advisable to go for the tyre rotation once in 10K KMs.
Thanks Sree. I have done the tire rotation this time.

Yes, this is the reason why I do not get this done if not required. It's better to get it done regularly but most of them do not do it properly and mess up.
