Shifting 2nd gear in my SX4 is very hard. Also, Reverse Gear not locking properly. Informed to Garuda and Sales Executive and a Dirver came and tried. He suggest me to inform this during 1st service. Any other had such problems? How it got rectified? Garuda;s after sale service is very good. I appreciate Garuda Team.

Got my car after second service, reached 5000+ kms.
I didn't pay anything for the 2nd service as there is no oil change. I got one tyre punctured, so they fixed them and they charged 100. First I tried to fix the puncture in outside shop but the guy told that fix it with the dealer itself which is good. Seems to be a problem that every time the puncture needs to be fixed with the dealer. Since it is maruti it is good that we have many dealers to fix it.

Whats so special about the SX4 tyres that they have to be fixed at the authorised dealerships? IMO, the dealership must have themselves got the puncture fixed from an outside shop.

what you say might be right, but the outside puncture shop guy was not confident in himself. he said that "if I fix also it will not be proper,again there will be leak, better you fix it with the company itself", that's why I took it to the dealer.

You can always keep a puncture kit and its very easy to fix the puncture. Even i had a puncture on my rear left tyre and i took it to a maruti authorised person where he took only 5 mins to fix the puncture(costed Rs 100/- per puncture). He also recommended a puncture kit which costed around Rs 400/-(bought it 2-3 months back, sorry forgot the exact price). I also got a 12V portable air compressor which will be very useful in the long trip when you get a puncture on a tubeless tyre.

Default The average is consistent 14

674 kms 38.5 lts: one long drive 500 kms, rest city: all ac/heater on

I still have not done second service. The speeds have been below 110 always. City drive is real bad.

Shell Normal is still available in Hyderabad. Only normal diesel has been stopped, per the Shell bunk owner.

Has anyone been able to modify the rear seat (using extra cushion in seat cover/ cutting the arm rest thickness) such that the entire seat back is level ? I'm interested in the SX4 and a little concerned about the seating comfort for the middle passenger when 3 are sitting abreast.

After I put seat covers, I felt that it's better than before - I may be wrong. Please check my garage for photos.
