Update: Since I had to do a 1200 kms trip I had to give Shivam for 1st service yesterday. Totally impressed with the service center!! Today came to Chennai. It was a total breeze to drive the car and the AMT didn't pose any troubles or challenges! Unfortunately due to my mistake there is a dent and scratches on bonnet. Once back to Bangalore I will check with service center on repairing/ replacement

Updates from my recent trip. Did a trip from Bangalore->Chennai->Tiruppur->Bangalore. While going to Chennai had a small dent on my bonnet. I got that fixed in Tiruppur. Overall I am totally satisfied with AMT performance in highways. I was able to touch speeds of 120kmph easily. Average mileage was around 17 kmpl with 100% AC usage. Totally completed around 1200kms in this trip and right now odometer stands at 1800+kms.

Congrats on your new car. I am also planning to book an Alto Vxi AMT (O) and your review was very helpful. Thanks.

I am a bit surprised that you took Alto on such a long trip I am a little scared of taking it to the highway (and definitely not 120kmph) having read about the safety ratings etc.

Congrats on your booking! I touched 120kmph and my standard speeds were between 90 - 110kmph. In the highways I didnt feel any shaking or any nervous kind of situations. Alto handling was good in highways. Braking was also good. Overall I am satisfied with this pocket rocket as some tbhpians have been calling it

I have taken delivery of the elusive Alto K10 AMT and took it on a long Bangalore->Salem->Chidambaram->Karaikal->Chidambaram->Thiruvannamalai->Bargur->Bangalore trip. The odo reads 1005 km in just about a week. Your review thread was of very good help. Thanks. I bought it from RNS motors btw.

I have two questions though. 1) When I open the driver's door, sometimes there is a feeble noice. It is like an alarm but of very very low volume and it lasts for about 10 seconds or so and then it stops. The salesperson had no clue what it is. (2) What accessories have you purchased for your vehicle and where ? I am thinking of adding 3M floor mats; rexin seat covers and remote lock using the keyfob (to lock the doors) from Maruti Genuine Accessories.

Congrats on your new car!! Regarding your questions:

1. The noise is nothing but AMT activating itself. Whenever the door is opened, it wont start. If the engine is already started and you have the driver's door opened, then whatever may be gear poistion of AMT, it wont start moving. You need to close the door and press & release the brake for the car to get moving.

2. Regarding accessories- i got the seat cover only, for which I paid extra. Rest all like the side& bumper beadings, revers parking sensors, underbody chasis coat were given as freebies by the dealer for me. I felt the remote key system to be costly. Dealer quote around 10k for that. Hence I didnt go with that.

Congratulations on the new Ride! Wish you many happy miles with it - great to see that you have done some highway runs on it as well

I was curious about one thing - did you consider the Renault Kwid AMT during your selection process? In recent trends, the Kwid seems to have pulled away a good number of Maruti customers and hence the question.

Thank you! I didn't consider the Kwid because it doesn't have a creep function in AMT.

Hi Sairamboko, How much tyre pressure do you keep for city drives and for highway runs ?

Hi psankar - I keep 35 psi for both city and highways.

BTW a quick update on FE figures. I got 18.5 kms/ltr during my latest tank fill. Really happy with the figures!!

Update- 5000 kms Completed and 2nd free service completed.

Service Advisor did a mistake. He said wheel balancing needs to be done and I said I will do it outside. But he proceeded with it and charged me for it. I clearly told him while collecting my car that I wont pay and he spoke to his manager and got it waived. Service station was Pratham Motors, ORR Bangalore

Completed 10,000 kms !! 3rd service was done around 9600 kms in anticipation of a trip, but that didn't happen. 3rd service cost was 4376. I added Door visor and an ac filter. Here are the photos.

P.S - photos being uploaded from mobile . Hence I am not able to rotate it.

Edit : mileage is around 18 kmspl in city ( my commute is 80% state highways ) and highway is around 19 with ac on.
