Most convinient place to me for the key fob is pocket. I assume it has something to do with charge potential left in cell / battery, I mean diminished charge could have its effect on effective range. Could it be taken as signal to replace the cell/ battery of key fob?

Trouble with this storage spot is, if I accelerate hard, the key fob falls down

I used to keep the key fob in my upper pocket but that isn't feasible with tshirts & seat belts. So I started keeping it in this cubby hole, faced similar issue of fob not found. Faced the same error when kept below the ACC unit. The best location for me now is right beside the gear stick. Mine snags well everywhere in the leather and never falls out thanks to the silicone key fob cover!

S-Cross 1.6 : Stock Vs Remap Dyno Run :

Maruti S-Cross : Official Review-suzuki_sx4_scross__16_ddis_1598_cc_2013on_118_bhp_stage_1__154_bhp__273_lbft.jpg

I found this dyno graph in Celtic Tuning website. It was done on Dastek dyno. I have checked dyno graphs of other cars with same 1.6 Multijet engine and all are similar in terms of peak figures.

It's surprising to see 110 BHP at wheels and 132 BHP at crank. I wish Suzuki held the torque curve for longer like Alfa Romeo Mito.

Maruti S-Cross : Official Review-img20161024wa0021.jpg

I am planning to dyno my remapped 1.6 S-cross soon and 130 plus BHP at wheels should be the target .

Note : Torque is mentioned as lb-ft in graph. Please multiply by 1.35 to get values in NM

It has nothing to do with the cell of fob. Any where inside the car, the fob works perfectly except in the cubby hole near the Push button. If it is there, it behaves erratically some times. (Not often, just once in a while). So, as a practice, I do not place the key fob in the cubby hole near push button.

As a matter of fact, in the 11+k kms, I have never placed the key fob anywhere except my pant pockets and touch wood, it has never played foul with me. I am not sure of the reason why some of us are facing this issue - but ideally it should work till the time the key fob is inside the car.

By the way, the mirrorlink is again working and I will post the pics soon - very soon

Trivia: I am not sure if anyone of us noticed - but I do not remember seeing this anywhere in the whole 397 pages in this thread.

The compass on the "Drive" quadrant of the infotainment system is actually a compass. It changes direction to show in which direction the vehicle is actually moving towards.

My scross have crossed 10k Km marks in 8 months of ownership. Going for 3rd service tomorrow. Only complaints are noisy armrest or seats( will get it rectified from them) .will get engine oil changed as well.anyone like to be more specific on which engine oil brand for 1.6? Will do wheel balancing( no need but its advisable to do it after every 10k km ) from MRF shops or somewhere outside but not from maruti as i have heard they never do good work with balancing and all.
Also would like to know one more thing .is it normal for 1.6 engines to emit black smoke if you accelerate for around 5-6k Rpms In neutral gear? My scross used to emit black smoke earlier every time but after changing air filter in last service it only emits black smoke puff if i accelerate it hard(say overtaking in 2nd-3rd gears) is it normal?
Note- this is my first diesel car so have less knowledge about how diesel engine's behave in different circumstances.

A brief puff of black smoke coming out of tail pipe during hard acceleration is perfectly normal. This is expected behavior in all diesel engines wherein the fuel mixture goes momentarily rich. If black smoke is visible all the time and the inside of the tailpipe is coated with heavy black carbon deposits then it is a different thing all together. So in your case there is nothing to worry, you can enjoy your ride.

Yes true. It has not been pointed on this thread. When compiling my ownership report, I kind of noticed it and have mentioned it in my report:

Hello fellow BHPians,
Any news on the rumored petrol AT with the 1.5 engine? A friend is looking out for a car and needs a petrol AT considering his low running.

He's keen on the BR-V but is also willing to wait till early 2017. Please don't suggest the Creta as he doesn't want to own another Hyundai.

TIA

I am also looking for compact SUV Petrol AT.
Just curious to know why you are not considering Ecosport AT?

Ecosport AT is very fun to drive and is fully loaded with 6 airbags and all the bells and whistles for under 12lakh. I had booked once too. Only reason I changed to diesel l later was because the DCT transmission doesn't do well in slow crawling bumper to bumper traffic which is what I have to deal with everyday.

Maruti has no plans to launch the facelift in India anytime soon, even though the sales that they currently have are miserable.

Rest assured that a petrol AT will take its own sweet time.

His friend probably does not want a sub-4mt SUV. Else the ecosport is a good buy.

Your MA$$ should have only one brand of oil, so it shall not matter. Plus, not all MA$$ stocks the same brand; it's all their preference.

Good tyre shops recommend balancing & alignment at 4-5K kms interval. Not sure how did you arrive at a 10K kms interval.

An Indian manufactured Petrol AT was recently launched in Indonesia -



You can check the interiors here and probably grasp the gist of the review through the sprinkle of English words.

Let's hope they launch it in India soon. Seems like a genuinely good alternative in the segment if they do.
