This is what I suspect as well. Wonder if the dealer will compensate me in some way . Can I wait? that is a difficult question. I am trading in my old swift, whose clutch and battery could give away any day. So not sure if I want to wait for 4 weeks.

Whatever I have read here, plus heard from my friends, it appears that the servicing costs are higher, as compared to Maruti.

Car: Wagon R

Color: Passion Red
Dealer: Fortpoint, Thane
On road price: 5.40L

Estimated date of delivery: By end of Aug 2016

This variant is made to order as per the dealer hence waiting of 6-8 weeks. Delivery may be preponed by few days if car arrives early.

Nano fetched 70K under exchange (including exchange bonus) which I think is a good amount for a 2011 LX model.

Fiat Linea 125s.

Otr : 10.85 lacs ( Incl zero dep insurance)
Color : to be decided once shipments roll in. I'm confused between Magnesio Grey and Minimal Grey.
Delivery: July'16 end.

Booking amount paid. Downpayment and loan to be processed once I look at the vehicle, do the PDI and select color.

Heartiest congrats mate.

Did you take a test drive? I would suggest Magnesio grey over Minimal grey, got good road presence.

Hi Ghodlur,

They don't have the TD vehicle yet. Believe that they will get it this week and I will TD it this weekend.

I TD'ed the existing 114 Ps version extensively ( 50 odd kms) and loved the build & dynamics. Given the changes, I believe that the drive will not be very different. I will let time be the judge of that!

Booked a Alto K10.

Make : Maruti
Model : Alto K10
Variant : Vxi
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : July, 2016
Color : Silver
Expected Delivery Date :
Dealer & City : Pune
Freebies : None :-(

I had earlier booked a Swift Lxi Optional (with ABS and Airbags) but changed the booking due to budget constraint. Hope the Alto-K10 would suffice. Only thing I don't like about it is the space issue...

The car has reached the dealership. Pdi is done and it has passed it with flying colors. I had to change color choice to grey inorder to get the delivery faster.

PS: The brown Ciaz is the elder Suzuki at my garage.

Unfortunately, Maruti and their dealerships are not very keen to sell cars with airbags in this segment.
Considering the delay as well as my need, I decided to go with normal variant (without Airbags)

This is the same problem I am facing with Swift Ldi (O). It has been more than 2 months since I booked. No information on whether they can deliver the car.
It would be great if someone can share the contacts of respective regional sales managers so that this can be escalated.
