Maruti has launched this limited edition to celebrate their 10 million domestic sales. It comes with some extra features like premium fabric seat, body graphics, some chrome lines here and there....nothing much to be talked about.

But, the important factor is they are offering some discount. I got some 35K discount with 10K accessories free.

On road is 11.01 lacs excluding above discounts.

I am going to get it in a weeks time. But, won't be the same case (speedy delivery) now on due to the lock-out at Maruti's Manesar Plant, where this car is being manufactured.

Thanks & congrats to you as well.

Have you gone for any additional accessories. I will get 10K acessories free and thinking what all to take, as it is already a fully loaded version.

Buddy, what are discounts your are getting, that matter the most. Instead of accessories, get the 4th year warranty done.

Also i am not sure, whether this engine has Synthetic oil or mineral oil as the celebration model were manufacturerd in Feb and March 2012. My dealer is saying that oil change will be done at 10,000 where as the owners manual says first service at 1,000 and replace engine oil.

I have an Ertiga ZDi that uses the same engine as SX4. Just got the 1st service done 2 weeks back. No engine oil change. As per the manual also engine oil needs to be changed after 10k Kms.

Hi Buddy,

That is the problem i am facing now... my manal says change engine oil at 1,000 kms. So i am assuming its mineral oil not synthetic.

Mine is SX4 Diesel celebration model, which was manufactured in March 2012 and last week only i have bought it

Can't understand why this difference between SX4 and Ertiga. I guess SX4 manual may not have been updated since my manual says oil change after 10000 Kms. I think you could check with the dealer again. IMHO, you need not change oil now.

PS: Check the manual again; even I was confused initially. In first service, it says engine oil, coolant oil, while under 3rd service it said engine oil change as a separate line.

To be honest, i am planning to go for oil change at the first service, i know it will cost a bit about Rs 3,000, but peace of mind

Hi Buddy,

Could you please check with Dealer, is the SX4 diesel filled with mineral or Synthetic oil?

As i mentioned, i took the delivery last week of Celebration edition.The owners manual says about oil change on first service, which is pointing out towards mineral oil, but when i comfirmed with the Dealer, they said first oil change will take place at 10,000 since its filled with Synthetic oil.

Hence i am dam confused

SX4 Diesel is fitted with Variable Geometry Turbo and hence should need SAE 5W40 oil (in line with other cars using same Fiat engine with VGT). I had read somewhere on the forum that Maruti dealers use Mobil Delvac 1 5W40 in SX4 D. So in all probability, it is a synthetic oil filled from factory and your dealer is right.

Also remember, normally a dealer will not refuse you for an oil change, that too for synthetic, since it's very profitable for them. Hope this helps.

Congrats on booking SX4-D.

IMHO, ~11 lacs for such an aging car is way too much. In the same 11 lacs or even lesser, you can get many newly launched cars I believe. For instance, did you consider the Rapid, Fiesta, Vento, Verna and all?

Thanks for your kind reply, i am planning for the oil change at 1,000 kms. Though it will cost a bomb shell, i believe because of the brand new engine metal shavings, it would be beneficial to get the Engine oil and filter change or perhaps i am

Hi People,

Could anybody confirm whether the Oil change is mandatory for SX4 diesel on the first service and which one either mineral or synthetic?

The reason i am confused because the Owner's manual suggests to change the oil where as if see the maruti circular, it says only 10,000 kms. Even contacted MASS centres, those SA are giving proper answers

Hello Amit,

The Manual says 1000kms for sure thats why I had changed the OIL myself , please make sure that the manual your given talks about the DDIS engine and not the VVT one ... A year ago three were no Diesel manuals available and I was told that would have to stick to the Petrol one .

The OIL that needs to go in is the Synthetic one .... the MASS at my place puts in the Mobil Delvac 1 ... Check out my Posts/Ownership thread for more details !!

Hope this helps

Thanks Peter, for your useful input. I was also in the same mind to replace the engine oil at 1,000 kms. I contacted multiple SA they all have different version of story, some says its needs to change and some says it would be changed at 10,000.

If Original oil is also synthetic, which needs to replaced at 1,000 kms, that means the owner cost would be very high isn't?

Thanks your input.
