Hi Guys,

Does this happen in your Baleno:

Problem: A clanking/grinding sound from front Wheels.

When & How: It doesn't happen while going over potholes or on uneven roads or while breaking at any speed (low or high). I have so far never driven faster than 100. I have clocked an average speed of 70 to 80 km/h on highways. It doesn't happen if I crawl over a speed breaker at low speeds either.

But I get clanking sound (for around 2-secs) when I start applying break my car before a speed breaker and my foot still on the break pedal. If I have slowed down my vehicle sufficiently and let my car crawl over speed bumper then it goes without any drama. Happened mostly on Highways.

Which is the culprit? Suspension or ABS.... Is it something I should check with Service center.

Maruti Suzuki Exports Baleno with K14 Engine to US, AUSTRALIA & NZ

I found the following data from Zauba. Maruti has exported 20 units of baleno to USA. Did Suzuki not shut down operations in USA?

My Baleno petrol has run 4.7K Kms in last 6 months and due for 2nd free service. Dad got FE figure of 19.8 kmpl with 3 passengers on board to bangalore. He had got 23+ when driven alone. These FE figures for a petrol car is just amazing.

Sad news: Baleno got it's first hit on rear door by a biker trying to squeeze through in bangalore traffic. There is a mild dent which is like a crease. Suggestions required about how to correct it. I will post the pics

If you are still in Bangalore, you could visit Trend Automobiles. They should be able to remove the dent without tinkering. Look them up on the Bangalore directory. I have used their services in the past and I am quite happy with the outcome.

My dad came back to mangalore today. Trend Automobile is just 5 kms away from my apartment in Bangalore. I would have told dad to visit if I knew about this before.
Thanks

Hello all,
To my utter disappointment, I just received the below mail from Nexa RM.
As per them, waiting period has gone up. I booked Zeta Diesel on 10th-March.
Anyone else who booked the car on March is facing this similar situation?

Since delivery is getting delayed, I'm thinking of switching to Baleno RS (Turbo-Petrol version).
Is it possible to buy RS with a budget of 9.5 lakhs OTR?

Do you have any clues if it would be the same for petrol too? I called up my RM(Kalyani Nexa) last week for update on Feb booked petrol alpha trim and he said they are closing orders for Dec bookings now, which means a waiting time of 4 months.

10 months waiting for a car is insane, I have a strong feeling that Maruti is acting up on this by keeping Indian order books not at the highest priority amidst the world wide demand (if any). At least I haven't seen a single baleno in last 2 months in cities like Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Paris, Koln and Düsseldorf ( all big German cities except Paris of course). Not sure about the rest of the Europe. This is getting nowhere.

As I walked in the showroom with my wife and son, I could see some suited salesmen but nobody cared to greet us. After looking here n there I went to the front desk and was told to wait. I kept waiting for half an hour but no salesman came to us. I could see a bunch of salesmen in the room chatting away. After waiting for half an hour i simply walked away from the showroom. I am surprised that Maruti claims that NEXA is their premium dealership.

Quite in contrast to my experience, that is why I asked. I visited them during Dhanteras, which is probably the busiest time for car sellers, but still we were attended well in a private cabin with their airplay devices at work and the discussion went for about 30 minutes over coffee, despite clearly telling them that our plan to buy is not immediate.

You may put a complain, if you wish directly at Maruti about this and they are surely very strict about these stuff.

Regards.

Hi All,

I have booked a Zeta petrol last month. The waiting period mentioned is 5-6 months. I heard the the vitara brezza might be eating into the Baleno sales.
Any idea if this is true and would it reduce the waiting period on the Baleno.
Hoping for miracles here, so any news of reduction in waiting period is music to my ears.

Maruti is concentrating more on Export. Domestic sales figures is decreasing every month. I suggest you to consider boosterjet baleno too if you are going to wait 5-6 months.
Cheers!

Hello Shiv_1984,

During the time of my booking (in March), NRM mentioned for Petrol there is a waiting period of 8-9 months.
Did you receive any further communication after your booking?

For your doubt about Baleno in Europe, here is the picture of Suzuki Baleno spotted at Stuttgart. I guess they have already started deliveries.
