Even I observed this thing. A couple of new Dzires were sporting the yellow number plate and T badge, which is questionable, considering the last-gen Dzire has already been earmarked for commercial use. In fact, I also saw one of the new Xcents sporting a yellow number plate (OT).

My concern was slightly different. A typical taxi buyer/operator won't wait for months to get a car (typical waiting period quoted by MS dealers). And the car I saw wasn't associated with any premium taxi service either where they want a specific model. It was just an Uber.

Sometimes I feel this waiting period concept is just a hogwash, a game played by the dealers to make some money in allotting car (have experienced this with Nexa).

Booked a Petrol VXi for my mom a couple of days ago in blue. Waiting time quoted was 8 weeks but they will try to get it in 6. Total OTR Mumbai was Rs 727000 including comprehensive insurance and extended warranty. Absolutely no offers or discounts obviously but we did get a buyback of 240000 on our Swift VDi which is 9 years old and in just OK condition.

Dzire leads the revival of the sedan market in India.

From a dispatch of 30+k units in August the Dzire moves ~34k cars to its dealers in September, with 40k bookings on hand!

Maruti Suzuki India Limited is undertaking a Service Campaign for new Dzire to inspect for a possible fault in the rear wheel hub.

Around 21,494 new DZIRE vehicles manufactured between 23rd February and 10th July 2017 will be covered in this campaign.

Started on 3rd October 2017, owners of the vehicles included in this service campaign will be contacted by dealers for inspection and replacement of the faulty part.

Service Campaigns are undertaken globally by automobile companies to rectify faults that may potentially cause inconvenience to customers.

The inspection and replacement will be done free of cost for the customer.

Customers of new DZIRE are requested to fill in the chassis number (MA3 followed by 14 digit alpha-numeric number) on the computer screen. The chassis number is embossed on the vehicle ID plate and is also in the vehicle invoice/registration documents.

Click the following link to check if your new DZIRE is included in the vehicles that may need attention: https://www.marutisuzuki.com/servicecampaign.aspx

PS: The above information is posted in the beta version of Maruti Suzuki's new website.

Its a silent recall for rear wheel bearing replacement of all new Dezire cars. It was unofficially confirmed by a friend who is placed with the MASS.

All new Dezire cars that are either delivered to the customers or at the dealer stockyard are a part of this campaign. The reason for the same is claimed to be some whining noise experienced by the owners of these cars.

Regards.

My Oxford Blue Zxi+ AMT was one of the 34k cars dispatched in September . The car was shipped out on September 23rd and reached the dealer's yard in October 4th. Will be doing a PDI on Saturday or Sunday and will be taking delivery next Saturday.

Congratulations on your new Car. Good that you have booked Dzire, my Baleno Alpha CVT dispatched on 23rd Sep.17 is yet to reach. As per OMR Nexa it has not even come to Bangalore yard. It’s really frustrating, i have even paid the amount on 27th Sep.17.

Thanks. Will certainly post lots of pictures. This thread is crying out loud for pics and opinions from owners. Will be doing a PDI this weekend, so will start posting pics from then on itself.

Thanks ashok_lat. I'm actually finding the regular MSIL showroom folks to be more responsive than the Nexa ones.

Did a PDI of my car today. Looks all good. Will be taking delivery next Saturday. I have opted for the following accessories at the dealership:

Door visors
Body side moulding with garnish insert
Interior Styling Kit - Godswood Brown

They were trying to force their basic accessories kit on me but I was steadfast in telling them that I do not require the basic accessories kit and would rather go for the ones that I really need. Some pics of the car from the PDI. Will post lots more after taking delivery

Are mudflaps part of the standard equipment of the car or are these to be bought separately? The dealer is saying this is not part of the standard equipment of the car and it needs to be bought separately and this is only available as part of their basic accessories kit. I am telling them that I don't need their basic accessories kit (costing Rs. 5000) which comes with these mudflaps, car body cover, steering wheel cover and some exterior/interior cleaning sprays. None of those with the exception of the mud flaps are even remotely useful for me, so I am trying to opt out of these but the dealer is insisting I take these!! The worst part is he says the mudflaps are not available separately.

Hi,

Mudflaps are a part of the factory fitting, I have got them as a standard factory fitting for my VDI AMT.

Thanks. I thought so too. I will now fight tooth and nail with the dealer in this.

Your sales executive has given you wrong info:

Firstly, the mudflaps are factory fitted, as confirmed by BHPian sree5999, and it can also be seen in the images below. They are taken in the factory itself, and mudflaps are clearly seen.

Secondly, the dealers club many parts as kits, but they can be individually taken too. Every single accessory has a different part number. Don't fall for what the dealer says.
