I usually keep the sensitivity set on 2nd lowest setting. I understand that it will wipe only if there are rain drops around the sensor but somehow it fails to do the first wipe automatically on let's say 9 out of 10 occasions. That's very poor success rate. On the contrary, I have never experienced failure in the first wipe from her German garage mate, Jetta, even when the sensitivity is set to the lowest.
One more thing I want to add is, Brezza wipes faster than Jetta with the same sensitivity settings once it goes going, so overall sensitivity is set higher by germans is also not the case here.

What I feel is auto wiper is engineered a little poorly and the first wipe doesn't trigger on most the occasions.

I will give setting the sensitivity to the highest level a try but again, it's more work than a manual wipe to change sensitivity before and after you start the car.

Wiper in 'Auto' mode doesn't wipe the windscreen even if there is water on the windscreen when I start the car. I need to do the first wipe manually on most the occasions (Miraculously it worked fine once).

Not sure the problem is common or specific to my car.
Adding to Bonecollector's comment. The practice I have is that I turn OFF the wiper from AUTO everytime I park the car. The next morning, while warming the engine, I turn it ON back to AUTO mode. Maybe I would request you to try this once

Thanks for the suggestion.

As it rains less where I live, I have started to keep the wipers off, I change it to Auto if it starts raining.

Vitara Brezza could get an AT Variant in 2017 for the Indian market.

India-made Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza AT showcased at the GIIAS 2016.

Engine option on offer is a 1,248 cc diesel four cylinder engine. This is the same engine which is also offered with the Vitara Brezza in India, but only with a 5 speed MT, and not an AT. India is expected to get an AMT variant early next year.

I was advised by my SA not to take my Brezza out of Gujarat (home state) before the RTO registration is completed. Not sure whether it is legal or not.

Vitara Brezza shown in Indonesia auto fair as "Reference model" to be launch later in 2017.
When going on sale it will come with the petrol variant and most likely to be the boosterjet and also in the AT configuration.

So. IMO, going forward we can expect the configuration offered in India .

- DDiS 200 with AMT
- 1.0 L boosterjet in AT

Suzuki Vitara will launch the Brezza in Indonesia next year.

We own predict the possibility in early 2017. In addition, Suzuki Vitara Brezza which will be sold in Indonesia, it will use a gasoline engine.

If your car is not registered yet, you are not even permitted to take out of your house/showroom. The car can be seized the moment it is out of showroom!

If the car is with you, then ideally it should either get a temporary registration or a permanent one. Without these you are not permitted to take your car out.

Default Vitara Brezza - New Addition

Hi
Been a while since a post was made. Got the Vitara Brezza delivered in June. A minor mod of wheels from 16" to 17" and debadging was all it took to make it butch.

Interiors are stock with only add on seat covers and head rest monitors. Awaiting Light Force compacts to grace them.

Been a petrol head since my first car, so switch to diesel was more to do with no options of Petrol in the Brezza.

Picture of the car in its elements.

Cheers

Your Brezza looks good from the side. If you can make the back and front chrome plates black then it will enhance the looks to a great extent!

Folks,

After a year of squabbling, dreaming, driving, and negotiating (primarily with family members ), I booked a Vitara Brezza ZDI last week.

Other cars considered were the S-Cross and the Creta (E+ Petrol).

In the end, the decision boiled down to the need for high ground clearance, maneuverability, and low purchase and running costs.

I felt the Brezza ZDI struck the best balance. Now starts the long wait!

Congratulations!
It is a great car for the criteria you mentioned. I am sure that you will get delivery earlier than the waiting period given by the dealer.

Guys, my brezza is returing better FE now. After getting around 15kmpl in city around 3000kms mark, she just returned 18.1kmpl in city. Odo reads 4555kms now.

But the sad part is a new rattle comes up almost every week. Planning to get all of them fixed at 2nd service (5000 kms). Also will proceed with alignment and balancing once odo reaches near 5000kms.

I wish MS would have used better quality material in interior to complement brezza's great ability to go over broken roads effortlessly.

An update after 3 months of Brezza ownership,

Drove to Nelliyampathi, in Kerala last weekend. It was performing very nicely in the highways as well as in hair-pin curves of the hilly section. Got a chance to drive through a sticky mud terrain of almost 250 metres. The stretch had rubbles and puddles with curves and slopes. I could feel the tires loosing the grip and getting skid, but managed to get out of it by maintaining a constant speed throughout in the first gear. Had it been with my earlier car, I would not have dared to attempt this.

Got mileage of 19.3 in highways and 18.6 in highways + hilly terrain. Content about the overall performance during the trip of around 1400 kms, of highways & ghat sections, in rain and sun.

But in Bangalore city, I am still getting 16.5, which is not bad. The problems I encountered till now are two; no rattles yet though.

Once both the front fog lamps had to be changed, the updates which I have posted earlier in this thread. One developed a crack and the other lamp's front cover was broken off completely. Dealership changed it and understood that it is wide-spread issue with Brezza.
Secondly, I had my rear seat stitching snapped in a corner where we sit. I had to take it to the dealership. It took half a day for them to stitch it back. They told they have stitched it end to end for the perfect fit. The work was done neatly.

Overall, happy about the purchase.
