Pardon me if I'm posting the question in the wrong thread.
Two of my friends own the Baleno Delta petrol. The cars are so smooth to drive. Upon enquiry they told me that the engine oil change is only at 10k kms. I found it amusing because as the engine smoothens up the metallic parts are deposited in the oil. If the debris is not removed at a shorter time initially won't it damage the overall engine life? Also are the users expected not to revv the engine past 2000rpm till 10k kms?

All maruti cars have first oil change at 10k kms. Gone are those days when maruti recommended first oil change at 1k kms. Yes it is good to follow engine run in method.

[b][mybhpthirst93B], we own a Maruti Suzuki Ritz petrol which uses the same K12M engine as in the Baleno petrol. The service booklet indicates the first engine oil change to be performed at 10k kms but we replaced it as soon as the odo read 7500 - 8000 kms as we felt it to be the ideal time.
2000 rpm seems to be too low for a petrol engine, I believe that 2300 - 2500 rpm would be ideal for a petrol engine during the run in period.

As per manual run-in is 1k kms. Waiting 10k kms is very painful

Yes, we can increase the rpm gradually after 1k - 2k kms but what I meant was that the engine reaches it optimum operation stage post 10k kms (after the first oil change). Am I wrong?

Hi Tojo

You are right. I wonder if I can request a oil change in 1st service. I am pretty sure I will not be able to constrain myself to 2-3k rpm till 10k km

At last got the much awaited call from the RM that my Delta Petrol will be delivered in a week.
I request an definitive answer to the following question:
Does Nexa fit a gear lock on request?
If no, if I get it fitted elsewhere, will it void the warranty?

Hi all,

I am planning to book a Baleno. I like the dark-grey and ray-blue colours. Between these 2 colours, which is relatively cooler when parked in the sun? I understand that lighter colours are better but there's no light colour that I liked in Baleno

Well, Ray Blue is lighter compared to Granite grey.

Congrats for your upcoming car, Maruti Baleno!

Shift lock is provided as an additional accessory (MGA) in regular Maruti outlets, hopefully there should be one with the Nexa dealer too. If they have, do cross - check with the price in online sites. For example: http://www.amazon.in/Autocop-Car-Gea...dp/B00YE6N52G#

There are little or no chance for the gear lock to void your warranty because they don't interfere with any electric components of the car, still make it sure by consulting your RM at the time of delivery.

Nexa or any maruti dealer are not providing gear lock for baleno.
It should be fitted from outside. Even Nexa is not confirming that it will or it will not effect the warranty.
I am in the same dilemma and not able to decide what to do. In NCR gear lock is a must have accessories considering the theft.

Maruti Suzuki has announced that the Automatic (Continuous Variable Transmission-CVT) will now be available as an option on the Zeta (Petrol) variant of Baleno. It has been priced at Rs 7,47,701, ex-showroom Delhi.

A very good move by Maruti.

I totally agree the necessity for a gear lock.
I'll try to find out about this from Maruti & inform you in case I get a positive response.
Would you also plz do the same if you get some info?
Thanks.

Why would one need a gear lock in a modern immobilizer enabled car?

Many modern cars are getting stolen, even imported ones, in Delhi.
A mechanical device,such as a Gear Lock is a very good additional protection.
