Hi mindovermotor, if it's ok for you to share, may we know the reason for sale?

Why are you trying to sell your S-Cross? What is the odometer reading? I am surprised that people are not even ready to buy the 1.3. Are you not exchanging your car?

I'm relocating to Europe for work for the next 3 years and can't see how I can let such a beauty lay idle for that long, hence the sale.

Hey Guys, Remember the MVP voucher (worth 16000) that Maruti had given post the price reduction for the 1.3 models. I came to know that I was not eligible for this voucher as I had taken extended warranty. Now Maruti has offered accessories worth 16000. I want your advise on what I can select. I already have seat covers. I enquired if I can get projector head lamps which is not an accessory. Here are the options I have selected -

1. Subwoofer 17990, will work with the existing ICE
2. Android video entertainment system with a 8 inch display - 19990, this will be fixed on the backrest of the front passenger seat
3. Cool Box, Dicky Chrome, Door Chrome Beeding, Door Visor, Bumper Protector, Body Cover and cool box 8 liters

What do you think, which is the best option of the above, or would you suggest something else?

Both me and my father took a long test drive on this car and the performance ( 1.6L ) is brutishly strong . I ride a Ktm 390 so no stranger to quick pick up but this car is perhaps the only car I have driven so far that got me a taste of real acceleration ( I of course have never driven more powerful cars say BMW etc ) , I didn't find the creta anywhere near as exciting though my test ride on that was through more congested roads . Since the purchase was for my father , he eventually opted for the Elantra but the S-Cross otherwise was the 2nd choice .

Another thing that surprised all of us including even my mother is the handling and the way the car grips the road in triple digit speeds . It also a very comfortable car(my mom remarked - it is like Innova ) though the the fit and finish of the interior should have been better .

We were also very very pleased with Nexa sales rep as well - not even once throughout the 30km+ test ride or the next day at the showroom did the man once impose on us to take a decision . Not even once did he badmouth the other cars we were considering (We were since start trying to choose a sedan ) . My father at 55 may not care much for performance and always wanted the premium sedan but when my turn arrives , it is Nexa that will be my first stop .

Satish - Can you please elaborate how you got this 16k offer? Did Maruti inform you about this on their own or you negotiated for it? I was also told that I am not eligible for the MVP voucher.

I have been following up with Maruti for a very long time through emails. Only last week I got a call from the dealership informing me that this offer has been offered by Maruti to all customers who were earlier not eligible for MCP.

I think you should call your RM and check.

If these are your shortlisted items, I personally prefer the subwoofer. Try to negotiate the price and get it for 16K itself. But then, you might need to get it done with a reputed ICE guy rather than the service centre guys.

Default Re: Maruti S-Cross : Official Review

Got my car back from service yesterday. The bill came up to Rs. 6950 for third free service. The rear axle beam, front disc,l break, brake pads, clutch assembly were replaced under warranty. Today, as I was taking the car out, a grinding noise kept coming. It was as though two metals were in contact and grinding. Also noticed my two spare bulbs weren't there in the car. Immediately called the service advisor and reported both the problems. He told he'll send a person and check about the bulbs. This is really frustrating. My Nexa experience has been quite bad. And my service cost for Jetta, for 15000 kms was only slightly higher. I'm sure if S- cross was a VW car it would received bashing all around. Repenting my decision, should have gone with vento Tsi. Neither is my car reliable nor pocket friendly.

If the parts were replaced under warranty, then what is the cost of 6950 for? Did you get the engine oil changed?

Can anyone shade more light on this? The given bulbs are headlight bulbs or something else? I guess i have to search my car for extra bulbs now My one fog lamp is not working and they quoted 550rs for new bulb.

Bulb replacement is usually always DIY, and if it is hard to access, any FNG can do it. A.S.S always charges an arm and a leg for such things (all brands), better to always go for parts in open market for these generic spare parts.

Folks, a quick question. What is the service interval for S Cross? My understanding was 1K, 5K, 10K and every 10K there after. I completed my 10K service three months back and is now at 18K. I got a call from Bimal Maruti that my 15K service is due. When I asked them about the service intervals, I was informed that the service interval is 5K and 10K is just the oil change interval. Any thoughts?

The cost was for oil, oil filter, wheel alignment and balancing and wiper blades. Other than wiper blades, others were mandatory is what I was informed.

The bulbs were the one I had replaced soon after purchase. I had installed osram bulbs and had kept the original bulbs in the glove box. It's sad when someone steals it at a service centre. The whole trust of leaving your car at the service centre is lost.

The service advisor had again called me back and informed me not to worry about the noise and keep driving. The noise disappeared after driving about 500 metres and hasn't appeared again. He told, may be it's because of the new set of brakes. They've screwed up wheel balancing and alignment. The steering needs to be kept to the left to go straight. It was perfect earlier.

Can you please post the bill of the service done. Will make things clear regarding that 6950 bucks that you paid.

Generally Maruti gives two headlight bulbs in the car during delivery which is kept in the glove box. Not sure if they provide in the S-Cross.

Check your 'Delivery Checklist' to find if bulbs were provided or no.

It can be done as a DIY.

Using the panel/trim removing tool, open the fog lamp housing from the points indicated in the image.

Maruti S-Cross : Official Review-marutiscross15.jpg

This removes that shroud where you can gain access to the fog lamp assembly.

Just use a star screwdriver and pull the assembly out. Once out just turn the bulb clockwise and it comes free. Get a new bulb from MGP and replace it.
