Default Re: Maruti Baleno: Full suspension replaced under warranty!

Hello Dr.Naren,

Pardon me for the Off-topic post, is there any way to find if the newer Wagon R's are among the list of Maruti's with stiff suspension. I find my new Wagon R dropping excessively(like an aircraft in turbulence) for the depressions on the road. The effect isn't observed when the car is fully loaded with passengers. And unsurprisingly, the service technicians do not find anything abnormal with the car.

At times on uneven roads the ride is similar to that of a jet-boat in a lake, albeit a little harsher than that of the boat. Is it due to a stiff or soft suspension? I do not know the term that defines such ride quality.

Although this might warrant a different thread, it would be great if someone could define the type of suspension in conjunction with ride quality.

Hi Naren, the part numbers for the Front Struts mentioned in your bill and the ones in my bill don't match.

I have asked the service manager to check the part numbers correspond to 2016 parts.

I shall keep you posted once I hear back from them.

Can you share the part number? It should be the strut meant for Diesel Baleno

Not necessarily buddy. It can also mean different vendor. In almost all Marutis I have seen, they have 3-4 part numbers for different vendor. For example swift diesel had 3 different numbers for struts corresponding to different vendors and then petrol swift also has 3 different.

Its written on the strut whether its for petrol or diesel.

Regards,
Shashi

Many owners have faced the same issue. The dealers had installed wrong struts. It's even mentioned as Gasoline and Diesel on the strut. Still many dealers have done this mistake. Another possibility is 2016 make struts.

The supplier for Baleno is Tenecco India / Monroe. I have not come across any other brands.

Hi Naren,

The service manager says the part number mentioned in my bill corresponds to Type 1 struts (which translates to 2016 make).

I told them I'm not satisfied with the replacement. So, I've asked them to check and replace similar to the ones mentioned in your bill (Type 2 struts 2017 make)

Yes, he is correct. P20 is type 1 struts. You won't find any difference . Try to get the full setup replaced under warranty

I got to test the car extensively today. The ride quality improvement is very significant. There is no noticeable difference in high speed stability. But I find that car is not as sharp as before on hard cornering. Overall, I can say that 50 percent improvement in ride and may be around 10 percent reduction in handling
