Default Re: Maruti Baleno : Official Review

Sorry Bhpians. I will post pictures as soon as I am able to click more. My car is premium silver. It has made life considerable easy after the Passat. It is smaller and Automatic. The performance also seems adequate for City.

I have been extremely busy and driven the car 400 Kms in the last 4 days, equally split across stop go traffic and open stretches. The mileage seems to be 13 Kmpl. I will know once I get the tankful again. The MID has been reset by me a 100 times as I was fiddling with all kinds of things.

I have two questions:

1. Does the Baleno need under body rust protection from 3M? The dealer did not offer any treatment packages

2. Where should I go in Gurgaon for a cheap paint sealant treatment?

3. During the the first 1500 kms I am trying to keep the RPMs below 2500. Is there anything else I should be doing?

The metal used in the car already comes with corrosion resistance. (Pics & Report: Inside Maruti-Suzuki's Manesar Factory)
However, if you live in a region where it rains a lot or is humid or has terrible laid roads which might scratch things then you can get undercoat done. Only 3M dealers or even Maruti service centers with automatic lift ramps offer under body coating, dealers without the ramp do not and cannot.

Any 3M dealer or even Wurth dealers might have it, not sure about it.

The Baleno's manual recommends run-in up til 950 kms, after which its upto you.

A friend of mine bought an S Cross from there and has a very sad experience. The car was replaced immediately with a new 2016 model car after he threatened to expose to the media the refurbished car that was sold to him as new. This happened about 20 days back.

1. It's a nice to have thing. I liked the clean look after a good under body wash and have the peace of mind that it can't rust. Plus, it might aid in the NVH levels too.

3. Avoid hard braking for the first 1000 kms too, which means, you shouldn't accelerate quickly too, Resort to a very defensive driving style please.

Hi everyone, This is my first post in a TBHP forum

I had booked a baleno zeta 1.2 in march and the after so many correspondences with Nexa, the car has arrived in their yard yesterday.

I have some queries which I would like to post here.

1. Mandovi nexa in sadashivnagar says that only one type of ICE head unit is available ( SONY XAV 68BT).
Now can anyone please suggest a better one for the same price?

2. I read in the news paper today that maruti is increasing the price of all its cars with immediate effect.
The invoicing of my car is over, would I still be asked to pay more?(Keeping in mind that the Bank gives a DD only for the invoiced price)

3. I would also welcome any suggestions regarding the accessories.

Thank you 😊

Congratulations !

Did you get the message from RM only after the car arrived at Yard ? Due to heavy demand Nexa is least bothered about the customer service. If we want we need to call them often and follow up.

When they offered me a Rayblue few weeks back ( which was originally booked by someone, who could not arrange for finance), everything started moving at a fast pace, finance guy from nexa called and asked me when I can provide them with DD and he also offered better rate of interest from SBI. Every five minutes I used to get a call.

Once I declined the offer and struck to my original colour all calls immediately stopped and now I am chasing the RM.

Usual rant of RM, "Sir, I am out of station, please give me a day's time, I shall update you. Your priority number is one, hence you may get it by this month end or September".

As far as the price raise is concerned, my opinion is that once the invoice is raised they shall not increase the price.

Happy motoring and safe driving.

Welcome to Team-Bhp!!

If the invoice is done, it means car with that particular chasis number is billed in your name. You won't have to pay more. Maruti has hiked the price by 10K.

Do post pics and write ownership review

Congrats!!

Thanks,

I got a call from my RM telling that the vehicle has been allotted and dispatched on 26th july from the Manesar unit. He told that the car would come to their yard by today and arrange a dd with in a week or so.

I was told about the so called 'nexa experience' by many. So I always followed up. Even though the waiting period quoted to me was 6 months, I called him very often to make my presence felt

Thanks a lot Dr Naren


Does that mean , I am compelled to take the car even if I do a PDI and find any defects? (hope such a thing doesnt happen..but still)
Will I be allowed to inspect the car in their yard?

I will definitely post pictures and write an ownership review after I do some miles...maybe in the next 10-15 days

Also, Since I learned from the previous posts that you too drive a zeta, kindly throw some light regarding the accessories and head unit (please refer my first post)

My father will be driving this car and he needs a reversing camera (though I am not a big fan). Therefore I decided to have a touchscreen unit installed allowing multi purpose operations.
If I go for the camera and display alone, there would be an ugly console popping up on the dashboard.
