And like all members, I too request you to kindly remove that front bull-bar.

Thank you very much! Yes I have noticed that most Ertigas have the door beads at the center. I personally did not like it.

And yes the bull bar will be off in couple weeks from now. Have couple things planned for the car.

God forbid if ever have a collision, the sensor will not be able to estimate the force of the impact and the airbags may not inflate. Then what is the point of having purchased a ZDI variant.

You have written that you were specifically interested in V variant Innova just because it has airbags. Then my friend you should get rid of the crash guard as soon as possible. I am not ridiculing you or anything. Its for your own good.

Take care.
Yes sir. Thank you for the kind words. And as mentioned above, the bull bar will go in few weeks.

You should keep the rear one IMO. Its quite low and really saves the bumper from bikers and rickshaws who use our bumper as brakes.

Yes the rear ones will stay. Though now everyone likes the car without the front guard now.

The LUV is chugging along very nicely. Just been under 10 months old and the ODO stands at 26,413 kms.

The LUV is almost going to touch 29,000 kms. Probably in the next month or so, we will be sending it for the 30K kms servicing.

What all needs to be changed in this servicing? Is it a major service?

My LUV turns 1 year old today with 32,683 kms on the odo. It has been a lovely experience so far. The car just racks up the kms flawlessly and without throwing a single tantrum.

Congratulations on completing one year of experience with your Ertiga. Lovely feedback Kisarchit. Enjoyed reading through.

How much has the absence of an infotainment system on the Ertiga affected your driving experience? I'm asking you because nowadays, a touch screen infotainment system is considered a must have in at least the top variants.

Well, I've grown out of it. I really missed bluetooth connectivity initially because the Polo had it but now that's gone, I don't miss it anymore.

I have not used much touch screen infotainment systems, to be brutally honest, so it is something I never got spoiled by in the first place but yes, being a top end, a little more equipment is required like ACC (automatic climate control) and folding mirrors, bluetooth connectivity, armrest, and leather seats but i guess that is asking too much and yet hoping price remains under 10 lacs.

And I have got some bad news to share...

My LUV met with an accident. I was driving alone to nearby market and it was a wet road. I took a turn and the car skidded as I misjudged entry speed and understeered into the nearby sidewalk. The airbags also popped out (I really do not why as I was not too fast).

Good thing is car is gone to repairs. Had to be towed to the service center. It is being fixed under zero dep insurance and it will take roughly a month to fix everything. Total Bill was roughly 2 lacs.

Default Re: Maruti Suzuki Ertiga ZDi: Things get really Sucky

That sucks, I had an accident too, hit the pillar while making sharp turn in the basement and damaged the rear wheel arch area/quarter panel.

Looking at how the bonnet and fender are out it looks like there may be suspension or frame damage.

I hope its just crossmember.

So the Maruti People mess up again. First was the car was supposed to be delivered last week. They discovered a broken steering rack so took another 3-4 days to fix that.

Today they called to do delivery but discovered they forgot to order an alloy to be used in spare tire so car is delayed again.

Whoever said Maruti is cheapest and best is quite wrong in today's times.

I thought the air-bag is deployed ONLY if the driver/passenger has put the seat-belt. Any idea why the passenger air-bag was deployed when you were alone in the car? Is this a case of malfunctioning air-bag sensor?
