Dear BHPians,

Please let me know if Maruti has addressed the poor brake issue in the base model of the Dzire? Also, is the issue pertinent to base models of both Swift & the Swift D'Zire?

Thanks.

I was told yesterday that the facelift is likely to be announced by end of this month. Apparently the production has already started. I booked my Dzire last week so will most likely be migrated to the new version.

Default re: Review: The 2nd-gen Maruti Dzire

I have something to report. I visited Hyderabad over the weekend, I drove from Bangalore to Hyderabad on Saturday and drove back to Bangalore on Sunday. It was on NH-7.

Most of the cars that I saw on the highway were Swift Dzires, and a majority if not all of them, were white. They were the new version, not the current facelift, but the one just before, which was on sale a month ago, based on the new Swift, the notchback Dzire

All of them were carrying an average of 4 passengers atleast and were doing 100-120 with air-conditioning on. I followed a number of them and they looked very planted from the rear, with no nervousness at speed or at curves or during hard braking. They were also able to take on the undulations on the road at speed and I did not find them braking and slowing down to take on small rough patches

The cars were VDi, noticed a few VXi and LDi models too. I drove during the day time on both days, and the competitors I could see were the Amaze and Xcent, the Xcent looked puny while being followed and did not look as planted as the Dzire, the tyres also looked very thin on the Xcent. There was only one Amaze that I noticed and it was a Zoom Car.

I'm impressed with what I saw of the Dzire. It was driven by people from different strata of society, you could see the 'software engineer' crowd in it, the 'middle-class office goer' crowd, the rural middle class, the nouveau rich and city dwelling nuclear families. I spotted the car at intersections and towns en-route, easily treading around on bad roads and navigating through challenging road conditions

What I was able to conclude is that for the consumer, the Dzire comes across as a winning proposition. Its boot is capable of carrying sensibly packed luggage, its got a fuel efficient and easy on the pocket engine, its able to carry good speeds and reduce travel time, its got good comfortable seating; since I did not see many passengers taking frequent 'stretch-your-legs' breaks which Swift, Wagon-R, Bolero, Indica and Sumo/Trax passengers were taking and it is backed by the Maruti service network where even in the middle of the highway, you are likely to be only a few kilometres from a Company authorised garage

PS:- I was driving a black TCIC Safari

Thumbs down re: Review: The 2nd-gen Maruti Dzire

Hi All,

I test drove the new Swift Dzire(2015) recently and found that the overall interior quality lesser than the previous one. But most importantly, the light color interiors attract a lot of dirt. For instance, the doors have two tone concept (both light colors) and the arm rest(where you find the power window controls) gets so dirty that it pricks your eyes.

Have a quick qn.

My baby sister and husband recently drove down from Bangalore to Thrissur (Kerala) rather our driver drove them down and back.
Some nincompoop SA had asked my BIL to use D2 mode for Driving in highways.

Long story short - Close to 1200KM @ highway speeds was done in D2 mode.

Car is 1.5 Yr old and had done "765 KM" prior to the trip.

I have asked them to get the oil changed. Is there anything else that needs to be done.

Appreciate the help.

Maruti to retain its leadership in the sub compact Sedan segment is now gearing to release the DZIRE in AMT Diesel variant.
The car spied is a ZDI version equipped with ABS & Airbags. Expect the segment to heat up after the new launches - Ford Aspire - VW Compact, etc.

Dzire AMT - will hit the market this festive season. WagonR twins too will get AMT at the same time,while the Swift will be by the year end.

This filter is fitted in the passenger side footwell.
The car AC filter performs same function like normal home AC filter. So you can judge its importance now.
This is surprising news. A/C cabin filters are part of the A/C system and if you are buying car with A/C, it should come by default.

How can Maruti give this as default in one model and not in another ?

Either we are mistaken in our understanding of this situation or should be a scam to get A/C motor destroyed.

Maruti is also testing the Dzire equipped with an AMT gearbox. The Dzire could also receive the fuel-efficient SHVS upgrade in the near future. The current diesel-powered Dzire does 26.59kpl, and after the upgrade it could better the Ciaz’s 28.09kpl figure.

Default Headlamp Replacement

My dad uses Maruti Dzire (the one earlier to the latest one). He wants to change the stock headlights to something more powerful. Could someone suggest which brand and rating headlamp to use without changing wiring? Also, is there any advantage of white over yellow? The stock ones are yellow.

Hi i have one query, the green color liquid (i believe 'coolant') is on low levels in my swift Dzire petrol 2013 model, i had serviced the car 6 months back but the car is lying idle from last two months. Can i just top it up? or do i need to flush it first?
If i can top it up, then what brand shall i use?

You can top it up. You should be able to get collant from any of petrol pumps. You have to add water to the coolant if it's not premixed type.

Do not mix brands.Maruti Service should have the same brand.you need to top it only. But look around for leaks especially at places where hoses ends. Coolant levels dont normally drop.

Hi everyone, I have a Dzire Diesel for about 2.5 years now and I have been extremely happy so far with my ownership but I have problem which I hope, the astute BHPians can solve.

In October, I started the car and went to the grocery store. But on coming back the car would not start up. It would crank but not start up. We tried a few times, and then called Maruti service. Since it was close to the service station, the guys came in about 20 mins. He tried to start the car and it started up on the first attempt. We were baffled to say the least.

Anyways, since it was close to 40K kms, we decided to give the car for service and investigate this problem as well, but the technicians could not find anything and we forgot all about it.

Yesterday, the same thing happened. I went to a restaurant, picked up my food and tried to start the car and it would not!! I tried multiple times but it would not start up. So I went home and came back after 2 hrs and the car started up on the first attempt. After that, I went to multiple places and did not face a single issue.

What could the reason be? Could it be anything with some electronic circuit not getting reset or something?

Thanks in Advance!

Before cranking the engine, always wait for 5-10seconds in 'ignition on' mode.

My friend's i20 used to behave in the exact similar manner, but on following the above advice he never faced the issue again.

And in my 2 years (35K km) of ownership, my diesel Dzire always started on a single crank (even in chilly hill stations) just because I wait in ignition on mode.

Since it is a diesel engine get the glowplugs replaced./check the circuitry of the glowplugs.
