Apologies for the late updates.

Yup, the alignment and balancing should be done along with rotation every 5000 Kms, that is what I follow and I guess everyone would tell you the same. Small price to pay for safety and longitivtiy of the tyre's cause replacement is expensive.
I played too much with Audio settings but was not able to get decent sound (not even as good as my first gen dzire vdi). That's why I thought I should go back to square one i.e default settings and start experimenting again. I usually play 320kbps songs via bluetooth connectivity. I will give songs via usb a try.
I also got alignment, balancing and rotation done. I was just curious what interval does MSIL recommend? Do they expect us to pay a visit to the workshop between two scheduled services for alignment/balancing?

This behaviour was consistent over the 1+ lakh km that we owned the car.
Thanks for sharing your experience, GTO. On contrary, I have never experienced auto sweep after hitting a pothole on my MK6 Jetta. This might be related to the the fact I usually break harder when I see a pothole while driving Jetta. But again, my sight have missed pothole on quite a few occasions while driving Jetta and she has hit them at higher speeds on multiple occasions.

Regarding Brezza, I feel things are getting worse every day. The swipe was triggered couple of times after driving over a speed-breaker at approx 20kmph . I strictly keep wipers 'Off' and switch to 'Auto' whenever it rains and then back to 'Off' again. Also no update from MASS regarding the issue, I followed up SA twice, I got the same answer "We have forwarded the issue to TSM" and he wasn't able to specify any timeline for the resolution. It has been almost a month since MASS was informed about the issue.

Btw, a TSM is not appointed by MSIL at dealership level, rather he is a company official, Territory Service Manager, to whom some of these dealerships report on a daily basis.
Am sure one of these TSM officials must have got to know your case by now.
Unfortunately, no update from MASS or TSM officials yet. It has been almost a month now. One of my friend is friends with an ex-TSM here. I will use the link to sort out issues if required. I will first try to escalate the issue to MSIL.

Yup, I also feel the same. I haven't created a thread on Tbhp yet. I will go through guild-lines once again and will create one this weekend if the time permits.
Speaking of niggles, a new noise is generated from below of the right most AC vent whenever the car goes over bad roads. The same thing I experienced with my first gen Dzire after 67k Kms, didn't get a chance to sort it out before selling her. I spoke to SA regarding it, they kept the car for 6 hours and told me that it is caused by AC grill and it is 'common', I shouldn't be 'bothered' by it. The noise was gone after they removed the grill. I was in real hurry when the car was delivered to me so didn't argue with him. Also, I have decided not to invest any time dealing with Kiran Motors and their stupid staff. I will contact another dealer (Manan Autolink) and try to sort out issues using their help.

One thing I have noticed is that posts on Brezza have been pretty muted. Either TBHPians are not getting Brezza's delivered or simply enjoying the drive.

50 odd pages is too muted for a car with 1L+ bookings and close to 45K deliveries.

Or we are still busy driving them around and trying to find niggles! Honestly the car is good and I have 12k on my odo. However, I do not find anything exciting enough to post. However my second log on the trip is on the way! Will keep you guys posted.

@gauravdgr8 - to your second statement. TBHPians are simply enjoying their drive and I am one of them .

Every vehicle has its share of niggles, positives and cons; but personally I feel that there are more positives in this car. Moreover Maruti Suzuki has given its customers what they want. Looks, Road Presence, Fuel efficient, Comfort, GC, National Engine and over all VFM... you name it and it has it all. I guess going forth we may see post on the ownership (I will try pinning mine as I have 6K on my ODO) and niggles/glitches here and there.

IMO it a No Non-Sense All-rounder that does not keep you wanting!

Folks,

I removed SD card before handing over the car for service.

I inserted it back into the slot but maps cannot be loaded. It says "No data for navigation". I tried after restarting HU and car but no luck. Any suggestion?

Also, I received a comprehensive feedback form for the car via post from MSIL headquarter a few days back. I will upload the form once I completely feel it. Did anyone else receive the same?

Thanks,
Bhavik

Attached is the feedback form I mentioned in my previous post. I hope MSIL start sending a feedback form for MASS experiences as well. A lot has been left desired so far in the area. I couldn't resist and made a quick mention of MASS dissatisfaction in QA feedback form. Overall, the feedback form reflects my ownership experience.

Just enjoying the experience. I am happy driving and being driven on Delhi roads and on the highway. Nothing much to add, it's an excellent vehicle, I've got what I wanted, no complaints.

Maruti Vitara Brezza’s Sales Crosses 50,000 Mark in India , some variants still demand over 6 months waiting period.

Petrol and AT variants speculated to come in in 2017.

Quote:
As the demand for Maruti Vitara Brezza remains high, the Indo-Japanese carmaker is planning to bring in the petrol iteration of the vehicle by early 2017. Powering the Vitara Brezza petrol could be a 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine that will make its India debut with the upcoming Baleno RS. This 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol mill pushes out a maximum power of 110bhp and a peak torque of 175Nm

@ bhansali_hardik - How was you 3rd or 10K Service? I know its a free service, but they did the mandatory engine oil change, oil filter change etc. What was your bill amount?
Feedback on how your engine feels with the clean new oil, mileage, any additives, any other info that you wish to share with fellow owners.

Thanks in advance.

Well, the bill came up to 3700/ rs including the wheel balancing and rotation. The car was feeling a little sluggish before the service and it was evident that it needed some pampering. Post service it came out real smooth and I was very satisfied with the service. Got my breaks rectified too. Did a highway run for 1500 kms post service and the mileage on MID was whooping 21.6 kmpl by tankful method it was just a little shy of 19kmpl. Added to it, it was a spirited highway drive so if driven sedately could've achieved 20+. My mileage in city has also bumped up a little closer to 17kmpl. Overall happy with the service and the drive!

The other day took a small test drive and was neither impressed nor overwhelmed when compared to the Scross. It's a neutral package.

However the SA mentioned that the waiting period has come down and can deliver the car in 3 months.

My cigarette lighter accessory socket in the Brezza stopped working when I was using an electric pump to fill up air. It never happened in my earlier cars with the same pump, which I am using for more than 3 years.

I realized that the fuse was blown. Also realized that Brezza has 2 separate fuse boxes, 1 in the engine bay and the other below the dashboard the passenger side under the A pillar. The blown 10 A fuse was in the dashboard fuse box, you have to remove 3 plastic locks using a screwdriver to get access. Owners manual has the fuses marked quite well, so I could locate the blown fuse and replace it using the tool and spare fuses provided in the Fuse box in the engine bay. Picture attached for reference.

I faced same issue in my WagonR. The blown fuse resulted in no power suply to the audio system, the ORVM adjustment and of course the 12V socket. I changed the fuse myself. Later, the seller of pump sent me a connector to directly connect the pump to battery but I haven't tried it that way. Maruti 12V sockets have maximum wattage mentioned, Brezza has 120W I guess. Check if your pump is more than that.

Personalisation comes to Maruti Suzuki - To start with Vitara Brezza.

Quote:
Expression of one’s individuality is finding plenty of traction amongst today’s youth. From clothes to gadgets to fashion accessories, youngsters are increasingly making personalised statements.
To cash in on this trend, Maruti Suzuki, the country’s largest car-maker, is launching a unique personalisation experience called iCreate.
While there are already 500 generic accessories that can be fitted in Maruti vehicles, including add-ons such as perfume bottles and floor mats, with the iCreate the company has made available an additional 90 elements and their various permutations and combinations — especially designed for Vitara Brezza — for a customer to choose from.

Quote:
The average Vitara Brezza customer is adventurous, sporty and glamorous, who is ready to experiment. That’s the reason the iCreate is first being launched with the Vitara Brezza. We are sure there is a scope to bring other Maruti vehicles under the ambit of iCreate over time

The financial express article states that we either pre inform our choices to the dealer while booking or we can pick and choose from various permutations & combinations on the official site. I have booked a Brezza, however unable to find the iCreate link on MSIL site. Please assist.
