Thanks ,didn't know such a high speed limit exists in India.

This sounds serious, I feel you should get engine mounts checked.
Does it happen when you rev the car hard on standstill, or it only happens when car is at high speeds.

As of now, it only happens during high speeds which I did just twice and its not a good feeling when you experience it happening to your car and more so when it happens to a brand new car, that too a premium one.

Hi all,

My father booked a baleno petrol delta silver on 21 march at NEXA Chandigarh. We were given a waiting time of 6-7 months.
I went to the dealer on saturday and enquired about our status. I was told that we are 30th on the waiting list and should expect the car by august end or september beginning. I was ok with it.

Today my father got a call from NEXA RM that they have a baleno petrol delta silver which was alloted to someone else and he has now backed out of it. The car will leave the factory today or tommorrow and would reach by friday or saturday. If we were interested then the car could be alloted to us, but we would have to make the payment immediately. My dad said payment can be arranged by sunday or monday. The RM said they cannot hold the car for more than 3-4 days and if payment not done on monday then they will give it to someone else.

Please tell me what sould be line of action now? Should i ask the RM for the VIN? Do we make payment after or before the PDI? Any other due diligence that needs to be made?

I know that the dealerships usually charge a lot for the insurance and was planning to get it done from outside directly from the company.
However, my dad has a City ZX 2006 in his name that has a 50% no claim bonus. I want to tranfer the NCB to the new car. Can this be done on our own or is there too much hassle/paper work and should be done through the NEXA dealer?

This is exactly what they do, even I was told that they can hold the car for 3-4 days, however I was able to pay in 1 week and my car was not allotted to anyone else. Its just tactics to ensure customer is hurried in to making payment.

Just tell RM that you are making arrangements for payment , he will surely wait, Don't get pressurized by 3-4 day thing.

Ensure you do PDi before your car is registered with local RTO.
So even if you have paid and car is not registered, you can deny that specific car if you see any issues.

You can contact your insurance company and ask them to issue a NCB certificate. You need to give the original ncb certificate to transfer the 50%ncb.

I transferred 50% ncb from my old manza to baleno. It is a pretty straightforward process atleast with bajaj allianz.

I too tried for 50% NCB transfer from my Swift to Zest from Royal Sundaram. However, the dealer rejected it saying I should have informed about NCB at the time of invoicing itself. So, he suggested to use the certificate during the first year renewal.

So, better keep your RM well informed about using NCB.

Over here (i know for chandigarh, punjab, haryana & himachal) the dealer just delivers the car with a temp registration valid for 30 days. After accepting the delivery it is the owner's responsibility to get the vehicle registered with the RLA/RTO. So payment will be before registration for sure.

Did you do the ncb transfer and insurance of new car on your own or through the dealer/agent?

What did the dealer reject? You could have got the NCB transferred on your own without the dealer. The dealer makes a huge margin on selling insurance so he will try to dissuade you from the ncb transfer. Incidentaly my old car is also registered with royal sundaram. will give them a call.

I got the NCB certificate myself. I handed over the NCB certificate to dealer who did the new insurance and I got the 50% ncb benefit.
I was given a choice and chose to go with bajaj allainz though it was slightly expensive (maruti insurance) as I am happy with their service. However, my RM said NCB is applicable even if I chose to switch insurance.

Good to know. Is it possible to transfer NCB certificate from old car to new car? Or did you sell the old car before getting the NCB certificate? Essentially, does the RC book entry need to reflect the new owner's name?

I looked at the insurance saving thread but this point was not clear to me.

I am not going for dealer exchange for my old car and will need to sell separately.

Rc name change is not needed. You need sale receipt and buyers id/addr proof ( that's what bajaj allianz asked me)

I thought you need not sell your car to transfer the NCB...as long as new car is similar or lower segment,insurance co can tranfer NCB from your existing car. I am not sure about this though.

I could not transfer LML VESPA a two wheeler's NCB to the CRUZE but I could transfer the Junkindica's NCB completely to the CRUZE without a hitch and availed a huge discount on the insurance when I bought the Cruze brand new in the year 2009. I have the Junkindica with National insurance to this day but with third party only. THe Cruze was with NDFC ERGO and now with Oriental.

Thanks. Was the NCB transferred while the insurance for Indica was still running? I think it is easier to get NCB separately while getting the insurance renewed - at that time, you can go only for 3P insurance.

Hi, I have booked a white Baleno Zeta CVT. Really excited to use it around Gurgaon.

However, I am not too happy about the fuel efficiency numbers quoted. I was expecting an overall efficiency of 15-16 Km/L.

Some Baleno petrol manual owners are getting 17 Kmpl on average. I expected CVT to deliver more. Thoughts?

I do understand that the CVT needs to be feathered for optimum performance and economy and that is how my driving style is going to be.
