Whoa --- the totally stripped car doesn't look like an excuse does it ? I just hope that it gets fixed.

BUSA: It might not help but do send your feedback to MSIL.

Eddy, rrnsss meant to say the frequent gearbox problems as excuse, not the stripped car.

This is not the first time but third time the car has gone for warranty issues, first time oil seal, then 2nd gear problem and now 1st, have send feedback, they called and apologised for the inconvenience, but i appreciate them for being so straghtforward and having a good approach, that i am not complaining, if i buy a Hyundai i am pretty sure i wont get even close to MSIL type of After Sales Service. Ah, the peace of mind with a Maruti.

Oh looks like MUL mechanics need time to fix the problem, i wish speedy recovery and hopefully they will resolve once for all

I suggest instead of Getz CRDi wait for pailo D which might be VFM, or once Palio d is launched lets wait and see if price of Getz CRDi come down and then make a call.

All the best!

Ravi.

Arre Swift is superior then Palio, if i have to buy a diesel after the Swift, it will be a Getz CRDi.

Got the car back yesterday, they changed 1st and 2nd gear. Last time when installing the gears back, they broke 4th gear, so i have 1st, 2nd and 4th gears as new.

Also got the car serviced, will put a report in the respective thread.

Do diesels require valve adjustment i wonder? Flushed [OWS 210 ?] and changed oil ? And Oil Filter?

He has ordered the part and it will take 2 days for it to come. Damn MSIL and their cost cutting.
Which batch your car belongs too (i.e manufacturing year)?

I have problem with clutch for the past 20,000 kms, since Iam used to it, never felt like replacing the clutch set. Eventually shifting gears has become much tighter esp. have to fight for slotting the first gear. Read in our forum that worn out clutch plate could end up damaging the gear box, which has prompted me to replace with new clutch plate which costs me around 3.5k.

Even after the clutch set replacement, slotting of gear is very difficult and was suggested to replace the gear lever cable (costing around Rs.3k).

Now with you mentioning about synchronization issues, Iam confused whether its a gear lever cable or its a synchronization issue. Any pointers to some simple check or making it as two steps, makes sense (i.e first replace the gear lever cable and see whether the problems gets resolved else next step). Please help

Even replaced the gear cable, but there are no improvements in movements of gears while shifting. I was not happy with its movement while taking delivery, but I was convinced that it will get smooth upon running few days/kms. The problems is getting worse...Any pointers?
