Default Re: Renault Kwid 'Live for More Reloaded' 2018 Edition launched

A half-hearted approach to clear stocks of 2017, they could have provided at least Day/Night IRVM, adjustable ORVM's, headrests and special edition alloy wheels. This does not deserve a new thread.

Apart from the parking sensor, I don’t see anything useful. It’s a marketing trick to garner interest. And I think it’ll work (for the masses).

The front grille gets silver accents, while the wheel caps and the ORVM housings get lime highlights.
Itís wonderful, the sticker job on the bonnet and doors helps in better wind deflection, and the lime highlights on the wheels add to stability!

Either Renault think-tank is really dumb or they think they are extremely smart; so much to think that their target buyers are super-dumb to give into these special editions!

This can be very well added to the existing official Kwid thread.
Merged, thank you .

Kwid does come with interesting sticker jobs. It is almost as if it is a small kid who tries real hard to stand out and frankly it does succeed to some extent.

Some times it looks good and some combinations are quite bad, but evidently there are some customers who like it and retain /buy those combinations. Every thing we see on the road is finally something that the end customer has liked.

While I do not appreciate new editions which just a sticker job in general, I could actually appreciate it to some extent in the Kwid segment at it's price point.

Wish it was safer though.

Completed the Second servicing at 105XX. Seems the lock buttons on the doors are pretty weak and this time I had the Rear Left door's replaced. Covered under warranty off course.

I also had placed an order for the IVRM of the Pulse and its a perfect fit in Kwid. Other Kwid owners can go for the same.

[Price : 450, Part Number : 963211HD0A]

For my upcoming trip, I took a bottle of the coolant, the SC uses. Below it is :-

Can anybody please advise how its different from the one Shell uses? (I understand that the one SC uses is premixed and there is no need for additional diluting unlike the shell's)

Let me see if I get a response here, else will post the query in the engine oil section.

Did anybody else face this issue? This is due to faulty A pedal sensor.

A few of my colleagues in our Kwid's WA group have reported facing the same issue.

Was it fine after replacing A pedal sensor?

I observed one more issue yesterday. High beam light, turn signal light was not working in the cluster, but they were actually functioning. The issue got resolved on it's own today .

From what I have understood reading their posts is that when this issue comes up, a visit to the SC is a must and the A pedal (sensor!) is replaced under warranty. I have asked for more information on this from them.

Dad had visited service centre last month. They did agree to replace under warranty. The part was not available then. I am planning to visit them soon.
