Dear BHPians

Looks like Creta SX(O) isn't a very fast moving variant.

The cars allotted are both March 17 manufactured ones and hence wanted to check with other SX(O) owners if they were in a similar situation when they were to register a SX(O).

The dealer indicated that they received the car only late April in their yard and the reason is because it is the SX(O) variant

I am not an SX(O) owner but a AT SX+CRDI one.
I wont call the SX(O) a slow mover if you are looking for a Manual Transmission, the SX(O) is the one. 6 Air Bags, a MID which is fantastic.

But like all the Creta variants it is over priced.

If this SX(O) has got the updated Infotainment unit with Android Auto go for it.

Seems my service centre trips won't stop anytime soon

So last night while returning home, I heard a loud sound from the co-driver side. It seemed like a rock or something metallic came under the tyre. Nothing critical. There was no contact with dividers or another vehicle whatsoever. We were cruising around 80kmph on the Akshardham flyover and since it was almost midnight, I didn't stop. But there was this tiny sound that I could hear and it looked like something is stuck to the tyre and is rotating with it.

Upon reaching home, I bend to look underneath when my wife pointed out that the plastic moulding on co-driver door is missing

There is hole in the skirting and it seems whatever impact pulled the moulding out was so strong, that it took 4-5 locks with it.

Notice the rupture in the moulding below

Notice the broken and missing locks

I'm still struggling to figure out what was the impact, especially when there was no contact. I ruled out theft because it is not an expensive part (1300 new with fitting at HASS) and not easy to remove.

Has it happened to anyone else? Any way to cover up that rupture?

Mods - please move this if you think there is a more appropriate thread for wider audience.

My Creta SX(O) has now completed 50k, thats even with me not using it for close to 9 months during the ownership.
I am not sure if anyone else has issues with their Creta's suspensions.
All my springs have gotten hard, very hard actually. I will be replacing them on Monday, that's if they have received the ordered springs at the service center.
(I did notice a bit of stiffness when the car was new, but that helped me in the handling department - Loved it)
No complaints when running on highways & the stiffness works like a dream, next to no body roll. Its the bad roads where it breaks the back.

I would need to find a solution to this problem else I donít see all the planned road trips happening.
I took a TD of Creta today and I was left longing for a good seating position which offers me good lumbar support. What I felt was
a) Being a 6"2 guy, I have to keep seats pushed back and since telescopic steering is not there, I have to bend forward and drive
b) Height adjustment has been really good as compared to Verna from where I come but still for the most convenient position, lumbar support was missing
c) Seat compound was very hard

How is your experience after few years ?
I come from Verna and have been really disappointed with the seats for otherwise an excellent vehicle and have constant back/shoulder aches driving it.
