hi Pyrotek, What is the waiting period in your city for Vitara Brezza? I had inquired in Chennai T. Nagar AIE Motors last week and I was told 4 months (irrespective of variant). BTW, last month they were quoting 6+months minimum for any variant.

Hi concorde24, I have been quoted 7 months, although they mentioned it could be earlier.

Hi Ysak - is it the dual tone version you are referring to? I think it is bad pricing by Maruti after the recent price hike, the ZDI+ dual tone has crossed Rs.10L and thereby it moves to a higher RTO tax rates. IMO, they could have priced it like Creta E+ variant.

May be you could have shifted the booking from dual tone to Metallic ZDI+ ? Just a suggestion.

I agree. You can easily make your car dual tone after a visit to 3M shop, should cost you 12k-15k

Folks,

I have been facing strange issue with Auto wiper mode. Sometimes when the car goes over pothole, a single wipe is done automatically.
I haven't been identify the exact pattern yet but it usually happens at the speed of around 20-30kmph in 1st,2nd gear.
I have been facing the issue for a while now. Initially I though it must have been due to water in the pothole spraying on the windshield but it has been a few weeks since it rained here and it happens even when there is absolutely no sign of water in surrounding.

Does anyone else face similar issue?

That seems to be a weired problem as i couldn't think of any particular reason for this. However i could think of two reasons which are listed below.

1) A rain sensor activates when there is a movement of object infront of the sensor. So irrespective of the object being rain, mud or any moving object, the wiper gets activated when there is a movement infront of it. Please check if the mirror / sensor unit is firmly glued onto the mirror, that it doesnot move when the car hits a pothole. I could imagine a movement of windshield infront of the sensor unit when the car hits a pothole if its loosely fitted.

2) A short circuit or a loosely soldered or attached wire which is creating this issue. You may have to physically open and see the unit to figure out the exact issue.

I suggest you approch your MASS and even ask for a replacement of the entire unit under warranty.

Hope this helps to figure out this itchy problem for you.

I will be visiting Maruti service center for 2nd service soon. Hope they will fix the issue or replace the unit.

Yes it is now TCS applicable and hence this much hike in total. Its just because i dont think the price hike is fair and the VFM factor is not anymore with Brezza ZDI+.

I am encountering a peculiar problem with my vdi(o) brezza. The headlight flickers and vibrates with the slightest vibration. Even when the car is standstill and the engine is on, i can see the headlight vibrating. The mass replaced the headlight unit with another from a new brezza however the problem still persisted. Spoke to the maruti official and they assured that they will look into the matter. Anyone have faced such incident?

So, my tire ran flat and the valve was also broken. While getting it fixed, I encountered this on my front right wheel, the image is horrendous and I am really concerned looking at the state of it! There is rust all over and the SA say's it normal and they will clean it out during the service and there is nothing to be worried about!

I am really concerned, did any of you notice something similar?

I have not able to check the same in brezza but before I purchased brezza, I booked a duster RXL plus 85PS which was lying idle at dealer's stock yard for 14 months(was able to negotiate it for 50k cheaper than brezza zdi+ dual tone, canceled it though after the launch of brezza). It had more rusting on the wheels than yours. There was one more duster which was lying there for around 6 months, it also had the rusting similar to what I can see in the image you provided. So I guess it is normal.

Mine looked similar, which I noticed when fixing a flat. After the car's second service, it turned black. The SA said that they cleaned it with diesel. I am not sure why, and how long the diesel would be effective.

As far as my knowledge goes, this is a mandatory safety feature (In Europe/USA & Other developed countries) during an impact. The technology is designed to activate the wipers during a crash and thus helping the driver and the passenger to see outside the car by clearing the windshield from dust/water/mud/ whatever slush. So I assume the force in which your vehicle goes through the pot hole is creating an alert system and is clearing the windshield. Then since there is no further input of an impact, the wiper turns off.

Well, in the coastal areas yes this is a normal thing and we have to take extra precautions to keep the rust off the bay. But something like this in bangalore and when the car is used everyday since it's purchased seems to be a bit alarming.

The SA here said the same thing and got it cleaned with diesel. The surface now is clean as the top most layer is being wiped off. I bet the rusting process will only get aggregated by this and there will be more of rust coming in. I am still not satisfied with this whole issue and the approach to solve it. It's concerning as it might hinder the functionality few years down the line!

Any one knows of an accessories shop where they sell roof top lights like the below in Bangalore, planning to fix one for my Red Brezza. I am not looking for one with more features / power to have a practical use, but just to enhance the beauty.

I do not advice you to drive inside city with roof top lights. You will easily attract the cops and fines have increased drastically now. Also it would glare oncoming traffic.
