Maruti Suzuki to revamp True Value outlets


Maruti Suzuki has announced that it will set up revamped True Value outlets across India. The plan is to set up 150 outlets by March 2018. These outlets will be standalone pre-owned car showrooms with larger display areas.

The network of independent True Value outlets spread across India will be digitally integrated, which will allow customers to access the online database of used cars from anywhere in India. True Value websites will display information about all the cars including their specifications, features and star ratings. The cars will undergo an evaluation based on 376 parameters and will be awarded star ratings (1 to 5 stars). 

True Value dealerships will sell Maruti Suzuki cars that are not more than 7 years old and with a mileage of less than 1,00,000 km. Only those cars that have been registered for personal use and with not more than two previous owners will be accepted. Cabs or other commercial vehicles will not qualify to be sold at True Value outlets. Cars that have been retrofitted with CNG or LPG kits will be rejected as well. 

Before a car is True Value certified, it will undergo the aforementioned 376-point check which will ascertain its refurbishment and service requirements. The vehicle will then be refurbished at a Maruti Suzuki workshop. Following an inspection, it will be rated on six parameters - engine, suspension, brakes, electrical, transmission & steering control and exteriors & interiors. Certified used cars will come with a warranty of up to one year and multiple free services.
