S-Cross 1.6
0-100 : 11.3 seconds

I believe many felt this is slow for a car with 320 NM torque. But, look what Wolf Moto has done to my car

Hi fellow Scross 1.6 Owners, whats your take on the clutch operation. I recently acquired a preowned 1.6 and noticed that Clutch is very hard to operate.

I have upgraded from Honda Amaze diesel which didn't have a light clutch as well but still it was better than Scross.

S-Cross 1.6 made in 2015 has hard clutch and little notchy gearshifts. I couldn't find out the reason till date. All the part numbers are same in 2015, 2016, 2017.

Finally bit the bullet and booked the S-Cross Zeta. We looked at a wide range of vehicles, right from the likes of Ecosport, Nexon, Brezza to big hitters like Hexa and Compass.

The S-Cross stood out for the space and practicality, as well as the VFM quotient. For just over 11L OTR for Zeta, its really good value as well. Expecting delivery by mid February, as the dealer already has the car in transit (2018 Jan manufactured according to them).

One thing I wanted to ask, what is included in the Genuine Nexa Accessories? The quote includes GNA at around 5.8k. Wondering if I should leave it out or not.

Congratulations on your booking and welcome to the world of 'Above the Ordinary'.

GNA is not standardised AFAIK. It vary from dealer to dealer. You can ask the RM to provide the information on its components and decide accordingly.

Congratulations on the booking. What color did you book. Your's must be the second s-cross in the new model in our forum after laluks. Please ask them to install the auto dimming inner rear view mirror for about 5.5k. This is worth the investment.

Congratulations ! Hope you have compared the insurance quote from dealer with what is available outside.

All right, will ask the RM about it then.

I opted for the Nexa Blue. This, along with White was the top 2 choices.
The auto dimming IRVM is something I am looking into myself too. Opted for Zeta over Alpha, as I couldn't justify the 1.5 lac price difference for whatever it had to offer.

I didn't compare insurance from outside, but the dealer quote was very reasonable, so didnt feel the need to.

2) Re-routed air intake by Blackworks, Bangalore :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...h-money-6.html (Is Cold Air Intake actually worth the money?)

60,000 Kms Service Update: Took my car to MASS today for 60,000 kms service. I had estimated close to 10,000/- for the service but MASS gave me a estimation of 12,000/- and the final bill came to about 14,200/-.

I told them to do the following Inspection/Replacement:
  • Engine Oil - R.
  • Engine Oil Filter - R.
  • Diesel Filter - R.
  • Air Filter - R.
  • Brake and Clutch fluid - R.
  • Coolant - R.
  • EGR Cleaning - Clean.
  • Gear Oil - I.
Extras:
  • New Wiper set.
  • Rubbing and Polishing.
  • Extra bottle of Coolant.
  • Bumper repairs.

It was a long day at MASS, EGR cleaning does require a lot of effort and time. The odometer is at 62,233 Kms, no complaints from the car. The mile munching will continue this month with trips planned to Sambhar Lake, Narkanda and Jim Corbett.


Pre-Service test drive - had no problems to report

These Elanzos have another 60K left in their life. I'm also waiting for them to wear out so that I can buy new shoes.

I have completed 45K and they are as good as new. Looking at them, replacement appears difficult.

Agree Sree. While performing my WA and WB, I was generally checking with the tyre dealer on the JKs and he was stating that these tyres will run 60-80K comfortably and only downside is the road grip and the road noise.

For me, I had encountered 4 punctures till date and lot of stones being stuck in-between the treads.

Ah, my favorite topic on one of my favorite threads!

Unless they belong to a certain enthusiastic medico, JK Elanzos last long, really really long .

But once they reach a certain stage or age, they will start showing their real colours - in the form of slight deformations, twists and bends. Also, they will start losing grip, resulting in aquaplaning and wheelspin. Braking efficiency too will reduce.

On the brighter side, after you get used to these tyres, any other tyre, however bad, will appear like an upgrade; the ride, handling and dynamics of a machine as beautiful as the S Cross will change for the better.

Yesterday, while travelling from Sakaleshapura to Hanbaal, I spotted a total of six S Cross', four of them new (facelifted) ones. One in particular caught my attention. We had parked on the roadside and were having lunch. The road was straight and I could see afar. I was observing the way different four wheelers were coming towards us and found that most of them were experiencing lateral movements because of the uneven road surface. However, the said S Cross zoomed in and out with utmost stability, akin to a low slung sedan. Pretty impressive .

JK tyres will last really long if the purpose is only to drive between Point A to B .

But, these Elanzo's are just horrible for those who look for more fun and comfort (Grip, high speed stability, ride, tyre noise etc).

Thanks to multiple 0-100 runs, Wolf remap, aggressive cornering JK's lasted only 19k km in my car. I am actually surprised with my present Continental MC5 tyres. I have run more than 13K KM and still have 50 percent tread left. For sure, I am getting more life with MC5. Do not ask me how .
