Can you post a snap of it, as I haven't found anything like that.

That's a lot of BS, must have been fed by some over enthusiastic sales person.

I have driven my Brezza for 19000+ kms and I have had just a few issues unlike so many that others are facing! *Touch wood* I don't have the rattles, however since 1000km service I've been complaining about the squeaky break pedal and the ASS absolutely doesn't budge!

I have gone off the paved roads recently and it turned out to be a good one! I'd expected it to be lousy and might have got stuck in a few places- however it didn't. The suspension really works well for me. It wasn't meant to off road and the reason I picked this was to have a higher GC and it fared well. I have done a lot of highway runs. The car feels solid even while doing triple digits and is a little underpowered. But the down side is the mileage while hitting triple digits. Like I've told earlier there's nothing really great about the car that you "have" to buy it! But however it ticks almost all the boxes and you wonder why not?

So that's been my story for 19k kms and will be ready to do many more trips! You would fall in love with it, but over the time you surely will appreciate it's lil things and specially the ridiculous pricing trend in the Indian market will put a smile when you see your baby fare well!

I think this is what your friend saw.

It's a rubber cap over the rear strut mount as far as I can think. This image is from a fellow member of VBOC ( Vitara Brezza Owners Club), Dr Madhav.

^^This is exactly how it looked like. Thanks for uploading.

My friend was able to remove it and fit it back again. Thanks all for the clarification. I fell for it thinking that it was some FEATURE added to the new models. :(

Vitara Brezza still reveling its success . Still 45000 bookings pending, waiting period of 24-28 weeks depending upon the variants.

I find this i-create customization packages available for the Brezza from Maruti. Can someone confirm if individual elements can be chosen separately irrespective of the variant? Say for instance can I choose Alloy wheels alone (which is approx. listed at 24k in the icreate brochure) at the time of booking for a LDi (O) variant?

Yes, you can!! Every accessory has a separate part number. The customization will be done once your car arrives at the showroom.

I was able to drive carefully and save my Brezza from scratches in a city like Pune for 6 months. But finally on Valentines day a scooter driver emerged from nowhere and brushed the left rear door - I really did not need such love. A similar brush in my Palio earlier had caused no visible dent. The dent in the picture shows that Maruti sheetmetal is thin, and small nudges can become unsightful dents.

I will get this fixed by my trusted mechanic Vitthal (Fiat specialist) and not rely on Maruti service which is expensive for such work. I do not wish to sacrifice my 50% no claims discount with this.

Bird droppings have etched two portions of our Brezza's bonnet. How to fix it? Looks like a collection of white spots. Year end 3rd service is due in a month.

Any pics??

Wet sanding/compounding with proper products should take care of it.

Haven't clicked yet. It was a painful moment after a wash. I had tried to clean it with water when I first saw the droppings but some portion was left on it which I thought would get cleaned during a shampoo wash. But it ended up badly. Is it a common issue or the paint on Brezza is poor? This was the first time I had left the car without waxing it and this has happened. Have you tried wet sanding? Won't it create a level difference with the rest of the surface?

Its not an issue with Brezza alone. Bird poo has acidic stuff which damages and etches clear coat. It should be removed as soon as you spot it. I keep a bottle of water in my car specifically for this purpose. Having a layer of wax helps, as it provides some resistance to the acidic weathering.

You shouldn't do wet sanding if you have never done it before. You should IMO take advice of some professional detailing centre.

Shashi

You may try rubbing some toothpaste with some cotton cloth followed by a good polish (wax/ liquid). Hopefully this should work. I tried it on some minor scratches that I had got on being hit by an auto rickshaw on the front bumper. I managed to remove most of it and it's not visible unless someone takes the effort to look closely/ minutely. Please do share your results. Thanks.

Maruti Vitara Brezza rides UV wave, likely to cross 100,000 sales in less than a year.

With strong demand continuing the Vitara Brezza is likely to increase production as the Gujarat plant is now functional. Maruti Suzuki is likely to add the petrol variant and the diesel AMT , mostly during the festive season. Engine speculated to be the 1.0L boosterjet for this compact UV.

Quote:
While Maruti will announce its February 2017 sales numbers on March 1, suffice it to say that the Vitara Brezza would have sold at least 8,500 units, if not more. This means the vehicle will have crossed the sales landmark of 100,000 units in less than a year since launch.

There's just too many of them on the roads these days. All the swift buyers from 5-6 years ago have moved onto Brezza I guess. Not loving the loss of feeling of exclusivity that I had driving it in the initial 3-4 months after the launch.
