Open the bonnet and you would not find major difference between 1.3 Multijet engines used in Dzire / S-Cross. Maruti has worked on insulation to keep the noise levels lesser inside cabin. Actual Engine noise is more or less the same.

Yes Dr.Naren basically I wanted to highlight the point of better insulation in S-cross from the perception point of a person who handled S-cross for the first time. And it was his very first comment immediately after ignition. Regarding other aspects there is more or less unanimity about S-cross being superior.

EDIT : I extend apology to readers (esp fellow BHPian DRIV3R) for my last post could have more clarity.

Hi Prasanna-Indaje - I don't think I use half clutch method in signals when at stand still. Nevertheless I will recheck on this in my next drive and confirm on this.

3rd Free Service completed for my 1.6 Delta. Paid 5,000 in all including labour charges for Wheel Balancing & Alignment.

Some Points to be noted:
- Cabin Air Filter was not changed & the mechanic only blew air to remove the dust from it. He told it can last another 10,000 Kms.
- Tyres were rotated from Front to Back as the ones on the front were little more worn out than rear.
- It has been discussed a lot here about the pricing of the 1.6 Oil Filter vs the 1.3 Oil Filter. I inquired about the same & was told that the size of the 1.3 Oil Filter is smaller . Still, it does not justify such exorbitant cost.

MSILís Service for NEXA products requires some concern:

- Owing to some circular, they are to open a new Service Workshop dedicated only for NEXA cars, but still no such Workshop has started.
- As a result NEXA cars have to line up among all other Maruti Cars waiting to be serviced along. At my local agency, there is a shortfall of mechanics who attend to Nexa cars. Hence, due to high rush my car was delivered to me 2 hours later than the scheduled delivery time.
- The workers who clean the car are not trained on how to treat NEXA cars particularly the S-cross. They exercise a very rough & damaging approach, especially while opening/moving the car doors, front bonnet, rear bonnet, seats, steering wheel etc. Iíve seen this sort of treatment being normally given to Altos/Swifts/Other hatch backs of Maruti & even on the Ciaz/Ertiga.

I lost my navigation SD card. I had given the car for service in June and only recently I realized that it was missing. I am the sole driver of the car. I checked with my service advisor if he found it as I remember he mentioning that he had updated the software of the ICE. He said he does not have it. Can't even directly point the finger at him anymore as so much time has passed. I don't use the card and hence did not know it was missing. Only recently while demonstrating the ICE to a friend I observed it was missing. A new one will cost Rs. 3500. Have decided not to get it as I don't use it. Suggest you guys take out the card while giving your car for service

That was the first thing that SA asked me to do when I visited the service station - all three times.

Just got me thinking, is there a way to keep a backup and restore it in a new SD card if lost ?

Do not worry, Just buy one SD card of 4 GB (will cost you around Rs400) and follow instruction at following location:
http://www.marutisuzuki.com/map_updation.aspx

Dont worry about data from old card, just download new files and copy it into new card.

Trident Honda has a board inside the service area - remove SD card, coins, valuables etc before handing over the car.

Anyone who bought/ buys the 1.6 S Cross will enjoy the fact of his/ her decision a couple years down the line. Because it is simply so much more car than the others in its immediate radius of "competition".
Seriously, the more I see them, the more I like these cars. They have every qualification to become one of those quiet icons in Indian Motoring and perhaps 10-15 years on, to take on the mantle of "Classic". And the best part is that if maintained well, these have the capacity to remain in good shape years down the line as well.
The better things in life, quite clearly, are NOT for the masses and personally Im quite happy with this fact.

No. I have not yet fitted the antenna. How easy or difficult was it to remove the stock antenna and fit this? Can the stock be fitted back easily?

Basically you'll have to remove the antenna only, the base stays. This has an antenna inside it which is to be connected to the base, and then this is fixed using 3M double tape covering the base under it. No idea if it'll hold good. Haven't you tried?

I have installed the shark fin antenna (from Amazon) couple of months back. It's a perfect fit so far. No issues.

Is it the same antenna which I shared in my post? I found it a bit smaller for the S-Cross. I think the shark fin antenna on the new Honda City is bigger in size, hence I thought that I have got the wrong antenna.
