I wanted to change the oil but the Service Advisor, maintenance Engineer along with the mechanic persuaded me to wait till 2000 Kms at least. Their logic was that let the car run for some more time as per their experience. Mechanic was using a term " Engine ko ramne do " , I don't know what it means but i will wait for 2 months and then change the oil.

Having driven the Ritz Diesel for over 90k kms, I can definitely vouch that the cluch is way better than the Ritz, so is the gearbox, not much effort needed to slot it in gear and as somebody already mentioned in this thread, a gentle nudge in the particular direction and the gear slots. Quite easy to drive in bumper to bumper stop and go traffic.
Having said that, the cluch is not as smooth as some of its petrol conterparts and if coming from a petrol vehicle, you would definitely feel the difference.

There is one week trip planned for brezza starting this Sunday. Current Odo reading shows around 200kms. After the end of the trip, odo reading is expected to fall between 1100-1400.
As I understand from the thread, first service is just routine checkup. Can i wait till 1400kms for the first service or should I get it done during the trip itself?

Also, I am not planning oil change till 10000kms service as per Maruti guidelines. Is it safe to follow?

The real world question, how is it to handle, in traffic? Unfortunately got caught in traffic today - Bangalore's dreaded crawling traffic! All I can say is, it's a piece of cake. Thanks to the light clutch and the eager 2nd gear to be always there to save you.

Have got the faux side skid plates installed and that's the only accessory I got yet. I surely am going to have sleepless nights ahead.

Congrats and happy motoring buddy!

Brezza looks good in this shade. Is it ZDI or ZDI +? Brezza has the best driveability out of all cars with 90 hp multijet engine.

I have also upgraded from RITZ which was Petrol though.

With due respect to my Ritz i can safely say that Clutch of Brezza is much more softer than RITZ Petrol. Gerarbox is also soft, feels like full of Butter and fits in the slots very comfortably.

I am confused between Breeza ZDI and Ecosport trend. I am taking this on company lease so i will be stuck with the car for 3 years. Both the cars are more or less costing me the same 26k for breeza and 24k for ecosport Trend.

I was looking at the Breeza for its ability to seat 5 people comfortably and because its a newer model compared to Ecosport which is almost 4yrs old now.
But Ecosport is more powerful and built better with better interiors. But i am told that it can only seat 2 ppl in the back seat and 3rd person will be a tight fit.Is it really so? How much difference is there between the rear seats of the cars?

I currently have a Figo TDCI Titanium. Does ecosport have the same back seat as Figo.

Please suggest. I have to make a decision by today evening.

If you can get the Trend+, then I'd advice you to go for the Ecosport over the Brezza. The Trend misses out on the airbags.
The Ecosport might be older, but if you ask me, it still looks better. The Brezza has a conservative design and only the top end dual tone variants are attention grabbers.
How often do you need to carry 5 people in the car? If it less than 10% of the times, then there is no need to make the backseat width a priority. Otherwise, yes, the Brezza would be better in this sense.
The major plus point for Maruti is its A.S.S. However, I can see that you already own a Figo and if your experience with Ford A.S.S. has been decent, then I think that you should go ahead with the Ecosport. It has much better interiors and has a better engine. Being a Ford, it is better to drive too.

No headrest on the back seat. Whiplash anyone?

My friend has an Ecosport. The rear bench is actually not fit for 3 adults. If 5 adults are to travel in the car frequently, my advice would be to go with the Brezza. However, if that is not the case, I would take the Ecosport anyday. Much better fit and finish, far better interior qualities, solid build and although the Ecosport is 4 years old, I still find it to be more stylish and futuristic as compared to Brezza. The Ecosport engine is now well tested and appreciated.

If seating 5 is not a regular thing for you, go for the Ecosport.

Thank you! Congratulations on your purchase too. Indeed yesterday's traffic was a nightmare. Added to it a new car made me super cautions, however it did handle all of it with a breeze.

Thanks! Yes, it indeed is worth the wait. I was on the waiting list for baleno and had got a call just a few days before the scheduled delivery. It was a battle between the heart and mind, heart took it away and I landed with a brezza! Go as per the recommendation of pundits and the A.S.S. I am yet to make up my mind about the oil changes and other stuff. I wouldn't be too keen to change it earlier either.

You can get it serviced, if you have time and it would be nice to have a clean service car for the return leg! Which is good. If, so book an appointment and have them informed in advance that you would need a speedy service, which they will happily do it if informed in advance. If it would be tough to accommodate a service. Then I would advice you to talk your service manager before the trip and have him informed.

As of now I would also go for the oil change as per the MSIL's guidelines.

Please don't be "stuck" with a car. That's my first advice. Added to it things no paper are different than that in real life. I would have maybe, maybe picked an ecosport. However the claustrophobic interior and the folks back at home not liking it's design made me go for the brezza. Not only that, i loved the design of brezza more than that of ecosport, which ended up being the driving factor. Brezza falls under neutral, where you would want one and you cannot complaint a lot but not really boast about it.

OT : If it were only based on my decisions I would pick a polo GT.

Took delivery of my Cerulean Blue Brezza VDI(O) from Rana Motors in Delhi. For now I couldn't be happier, but more of that later, in the meanwhile here's a fun fact (or gossip).

My SA claimed that although the waiting list was 6 months plus for most models, what they're seeing on the ground is that people are getting their Brezza cars in 1-2 months. The SA states that they themselves can't understand it and while it is making everyone very happy, some customers are inconvenienced- having planned for a cash outflow 6 months from the booking date, suddenly they are being asked to start payments in a month!

Not sure if this is an isolated incident or why it's happening, but I though I'd pass it on.

Its the same story here too. While the official board says 27 weeks for a ZDi+, the SA's are hopeful to deliver it in 2 months time.

Congratulations on your new car!!

I am being offered a car that someone booked and cancelled. So even though my original choice was VDI(o) red I am settling for a Blue ZDI

It looks like this may not be an isolated incident.
