After going through many reviews and ownership reports I think alto K10 AMT is better than Celerio AMT. Though I have not decided whether I'll go with MT or AMT. Whats your opinion on Alto K10 AMT?

Thanks
I own a WagonR 1.0 manual and love to drive the car within the city except for a very big flaw, poor low end torque. When the car is moving, there is no problem. But stop-go traffic can be frustrating. Second big flaw is plastic quality in Maruti cars which rattle in a few years time. The advantages are tall boy seating, easy getting/walking in and out, clear view of the road (except for a blind spot in A-pillar) and good FE.

Have you TDed the Tiago?

I have a Tiago in my family so I want a different car. I think I will go with Celerio only. Decent car with good engine and FE.

Today evening after a drive of about 25 Kms started smelling petrol fumes inside the car (Wagon R AMT). Opened the bonnet to checkout and observed that there seems to be petrol leakage in/around the part in the snap below. The braided sleeve had had slipped and the rubber tube had been in contact with the metal part and seems to have developed a leak. I moved the braided sleeve so that the tube is covered now. Plan to call Maruti care in the morning to check it out. Is this a file line ?

Turns out the fuel line had sprung a leak because of the rubbing against the metal part (and heat ?). The pipe was replaced and re-routed. The braided sleeve was also tie-strapped securely. Do check in your cars if this is an issue.

All,

My father is looking to buy an automatic car only for city driving and he's almost 67 now. He's also tall.

Can anyone suggest if Wagon R Automatic will be a better option or will this be worthwhile to shell out more and buy an Hyundai Grand i10 Automatic?

Priorities: Convenience, Price, Maintenance cost and Mileage

Its a good car but I think its due for a change anytime now. You can have a look at Celerio as well. Its a nice car and your dad should be comfortable in that car as well.

Hello all, we own a 2015 WagonR VXI, it has completed about 31000 Kms. Until now, everything was going fine but since a week a weird problem has crept in. The car makes a shrill whining noise during braking. We sent the car to Concept Cars, Sitapur [Maruti Suzuki service centre] for repair. The SA said, "The noise was there because of dirt in the brakes and we have cleaned them", but after a day or so the noise has recurred.

Please, advise me how can we get rid of the problem and what is its cause.

With Regards,
Shreyas Kumar Agarwal

If the noise goes away a while after you brake hard or the brakes heat up then it is normal. If it doesn't, get the calliper pins and the entire mechanism checked.

The whistling or whining as you call it could be because of driving through a lot of water. Pouring hard water on the discs can also cause this noise. This is normal. Get the calliper pins greased as this could be a prime suspect IMO.

Our Wagon R Vxi AMT Option went in for the 6months / 5000km Second Free Service today.

Right from the day we took delivery, I had noticed that there was a thud sound from the front suspension similar to what we get when the bushes are shot. Had informed at the First Free Service. But on that day along with the Wagon R I had taken the Ertiga in for its 3rd Service which included an oil change and hence I was spending more time with it.

It seems the Wagon R was just washed and given to me without the issue not being really addressed.

Today being a Sunday and month end there were very few customers (just 4 others in fact). The staff on duty too were very less. Just 2 service advisors and 4 mechanics.

I raised the issue and put my foot down that it should be solved. The sound was diagnosed as a bad strut bush.

The strut bush on both sides were changed under warranty.

Vehicle in and out in 1.5 hours with​ me acting as the handyman for the mechanic.

The sound is now gone. But need to drive a few more kilometres to be sure.
