Default Re: Maruti Baleno : Official Review

I am getting a creaking noise from the rear suspension (primarily from the left side) whenever a slightly deeper undulation on the road is encountered.

And when the road surface is wet and the coil springs get wet while driving, this noise increases and is heard from both side of the rear suspension, even in minor undulations.

I am suspecting the greasing of the place where the coil springs are mounted.

Anyone else facing the same issue?

Also, update on my earlier rear right rubbing noise when brakes are applied - The issue is still unresolved - brakes were completed cleaned, spindle in the wheel assembly was replaced under warranty, but the issue still exists. Now they are saying that they will try changing the rear axle and see if that resolves the noise

I used to have the problem of bouncy/uncomfortable ride on my Baleno delta CVT. I complained to maruti and they replaced the rear shocks/springs. Can someone confirm the part number for replacement is indeed the new one that fixes the issue (attached part numbers from bill)

I have completed 1600 Km approx so far on my two months old 1.2 petrol. I somehow feel the engine is severely under-powered or is it because i have been driving a palio s10 till the baleno arrived (owned it for a year and half). You have to rev hard and feels like the car comes to life only post 2K rpm mark. This is not a complaint but just want to check if other members feel the same or the engine will become more peppy as i keep adding miles

Atlast got the front suspension replaced on my 2016 Baleno zeta petrol. The work was supposed to be done in two hours but took two days. The less I said about the workshop manager the better. I had to escalate to the Regional service manager to get the work done.

The workshop manager said that Maruti has issued a circular about the suspension problem on Baleno's prior to 2017. I asked him to share it but as I said the less I said about him the better.

Has anyone heard about the circular?

No circular so far on suspension issue, but in the 20k service, they replaced fuel filter and assembly and programmed airbag, in fact i have faced weird issues on my baleno ddis,here are those -

1. Gear knob could not be engage to the right slot & finally jammed
2. Paint corrosion on LHS doors, near window beading
3. Clutch pedal goes free and gears couldn't be engaged, some battery acid leak detected which has fallen on clutch hose causing the oil spill (all these in less than 15k kms)

manufacturing defects continue -

4. Car will not start in one or two cranks, finally ASS detected fuel pump fault after 3 days observation & finally replaced

wondering about my situation as the car clocked other side of 40k kms and warranty due

Pathetic quality of new maruti products,
but my swift D was a gem even after clocking 150k kms,

Has anyone been allotted a Baleno Zeta CVT in July? My RM at OMR Nexa is continuing to claim that there have been no dispatches of CVT variants since June and they are waiting to hear from Maruti on with the next set of CVT allotments would begin. I don't quite believe what he's saying, but don't have a way of independently verifying it either!! I had booked my car on February 5th and I'm still waiting for an allotment. The delivery date mentioned during booking was August 5th, but it is looking increasingly possible that I will not be getting my car delivered by then!!

it seems to be the same story i got from Nexa in Gurgaon. they said that Maruti is prioritizing production of manual variants and automatics have been pushed back. even i have booked a Zeta CVT which was supposed come within July, but now it is unlikely. add to that i booked Red, which according to Nexa is not much in demand, hence production is even lower

Wow! Good news for those who have booked Zeta CVT. Please switch over to Alpha variant to jump the queue.

I would have definitely gone for the Alpha variant if it was available last year

I just called my dealer to change the booking and he tells me this is fake news.

The news about CVT Alpha is all over the web. Almost all leading automobile blogs/websites such as Carwale and Overdrive are confirming this. I guess the dealer wasn't aware yet.

If only Honda can wake up now and launch the Jazz VX CVT. That will be a seriously sweet offering.

Same thing with me too. My RM was not aware of this at all.

They will be informed in coming days regarding New Varaints, this holds true if they have not been notified. Or else, they may be trying to sell Zeta citing unavailability. They may be having stock of Zeta/Delta CVT hence they are not passing the news to prospective customers.

Normally, Media People/Auto Journalist's are informed first regarding a product before dealers. The Company policy is like that.

Ya, they'll be thinking of it from today, but no matter if they launch or not, it isn't going to sell. Because, despite being a good car, it is overpriced. I am not ready to pay 9 lakhs (Ex-Showroom) for a Hatch, unless it has a defining Engine & Feature Packed which the Jazz isn't.

Since he doesn't know it & you know it now, and the fact that you haven't received your car yet, why don't you book/change by confirming this news to the dealer ?

Now, I wouldn't look at Zeta CVT unless I don't like the features Alpha has over Zeta.

You're very lucky, grab this opportunity.

He he, already did that. Gave him a verbal confirmation that I'm going to upgrade my booking. Will give a written confirmation to him tomorrow. I want to talk to the Nexa support once before that.
