I had a similar squeak from the seat base when 'getting-in' and 'getting-out' of the seat. At the 70K service they applied grease on certain points on the seat base, the squeaks were gone.
Thanks Anurag for the inputs.
Seat rails checked now and they are well lubricated. I drive with the seat height adjustment kept at the maximum. Let me keep the height at the lowest and check. Will update if any change is there.

Our Swift had a clicking noise from the driver seat throughout its life, I recall making a note of this in the ownership report too.The service guys could never get it corrected. It used to be there whenever you take a corner aggressively.

I used to keep the seat at the lowest position always. So not sure whether that's going to help. From what I know, it's coming from the height adjustment mechanism. None of lower variants that I drove had this issue.

Sree73, like Anurag has suggested, the lubrication of seatbase will most probably solve the issue. I was having the very same problem in my S-Cross also. A very irritating squeaking sound from the Driver's seat while taking turns or over bad roads - the frequency of which went up from rare to occasional to very frequent over the last 6 months.

I had to visit the Service Center recently for another issue and I pointed out this. The service manager asked the worker to use a 3M lubrication spray and told me that that will solve the issue. I was not convinced - I thought something needs to be tightened or fixed - Hence, I was adamant for a test drive after the lubrication is done. We then went for a decent test drive over broken patches and bad roads - the sound was gone. I have done over 1700 kms after that in all conditions - the sound has not returned yet. Touch Wood!

Thanks Vigkey. I will try this. If the lubrication of seat base helps, nothing like that. As you said, the frequency of this squeaking sound has become more frequent now and it's really irritating.

Thanks again to Anurag.

Just spray WD40 onto the sliding and lift mechanisms, it will take care of all 'squeaks'!

Wonder why Maruti hasn't incorporated SVHS tech in S-Cross. It would help them lower the tax bracket and attract more customers.

It is also a god car and we should not be saying that if you are happy with s-cross, then you will be unhappy with the ecosport. Both the car as its own merits, the end user should weigh the pros and cons.

For me the seating comfort,ride and handling, more premium interiors and maruti peace of mind were more important than 4 additional airbags and 2cm of ground clearance.

Thanks guys. I was very much inclined towards the Ecosport titanium+ for the solid build and 6 air bags. Interiors i agree were a little cramped at the rear bench. I still feel the 1.5 TDCi is one of the most drivable units in city traffic and highways due to its linear power delivery.

But, now considering all the pros and cons like long term support(as im looking at a vehicle for atleast 7 or 8 years) and the very good follow up by NEXA(they came to our home atlest 4/5 times and offered pretty long test drives whenever we wanted. Here i would also have to mention that the FORD showroom staff at Vizag were pretty damn professional as well and gave us a very good demo and test drive experience) and also considering that scross is infact a segment higher than ecosport, we booked a 1.3 ZETA in white.
We have informed the RM from NEXA that we would be taking the delivery sometime in December or for PONGAL. (hoping that some other discounts are thrown around in December and also im in middle of a relocation and job swap and dont really need a car right now)

Im looking at paying about 7L downpayment and take the rest 5L on loan. NEXA says SBI is the best bet which i might want to agree on.

Congratulations vamsi.
A wonderful car to drive in city as well as highways.

I do own the same 1.3 Zeta in Granite Grey. Done more than 20K KMs in last one year. I have done quite a number of long drives on 1.3. It has enough power for highway drives.

Enjoy the car and miles..

Congratulations, I own a 1.3 Zeta in Granite Grey. Upgraded the mirror to auto day light mirrors and the loan is from SBI as an over draft account, so I get more flexibility than regular car loans.

Thanks Govigov.

would you able to tell me how much the auto irvm costed?
Also, what about the steering leather wrap? is there any decent steering wrap offered by NEXA or aftermarket is the way to go?

Our deal with NEXA includes the basic accessorries and leather seat covers which i guess my father agreed to pay for about 5000 (they said they costed 12k+5k for basic accessories).

Any other accessories that i need to be looking at for the Zeta? (As, before the delivery is when i would be able to bargain the best for any sort of accessories from my prior experience. Once the vehicle is delivered its always the MRP on any accessory price)

As im currently posted in bangalore, my father has been taking care of all these activities for me as i wanted to get the car in Vizag. I would be taking it to Hyderabad to where i would be relocating back to.

I have installed fog lamp projectors from Xenon Planet and the output is massive. It is a bixenon projector and has both high and low beam. Output is miles ahead of stock headlamps and I was shocked as the fogs are placed lower.

Details to follow soon, just one pic for now

Wow. What an output . Really lights up the road ahead very bright. Is this only the fog lamp output or along with head lamps also?

Quoting you from another thread for the head lamp assembly upgrade. You had mentioned the cost as 19.5K. I just checked their website. Mini D2s 4.0 (pair) is costing Rs. 9000 only. So, the installation charge is approx Rs 10K?.

OK. may be along with the bulbs/ballst/installation it might be 19.5K. Right?

This is high beam output of both stock headlight and XP micro. Stock headlight high beam was just average.

19.5K is for the full kit which includes projectors, bulbs, shrouds, harness and ballasts. 9000 Rs is for a pair of Mini D2S 4.0 projectors. I have Alpha variant and did not want to open stock headlight assembly. So I went for XP micro projector as replacement for stock fog lamps and very very impressed with the output.

Cheers!!

Thanks Naren. I'm looking for a plug and play Projector assembly upgrade for my 1.3 Zeta.(May not be possible in Zeta as it is not with projector). Have contacted XP on their Whatsapp number. Prefer Mini D2s 4.0. Do you have any other suggestions?

Also, where exactly is their Bangalore facility?

Mini D2S 4.0 is a very good option. It has good build and very strong high beam. You can also upgrade to OEM D2S bulbs like Osram NB/CBI/CBH.

Mini D2S 4.0 wouldn't require cutting of reflector and an easy fit. If you do not want to open stock headlight assembly, go for XP micro as replacement for stock fog lamps .
