The breakage has more to do with bad quality than anything else.The same has also been acknowledged by the dealer. What are other Ciaz owners doing about it?
Living with it. Replaced it twice after warranty and then gave up. The Rear AC Vents are indeed very poor quality. I don't have any issues with the front vents. The only other issues,

- Android play is buggy at times
- Front Arm Rest Storage Compartment Lock gave in after 2 years. Keeps opening up in bad road jerks. I put some black tape on the lock mechanism as a Jugaad
- Door Water/Rain Seals or whatever you call it does not hold that tight over long usage. A Typical problem in cheaper cars.

Other than that, the car is holding good. Not much maintenance. Approaching 5 years and this will probably hold good with me for another 3-4 years.

Guys any idea how to retrofit the steering wheel controls in a vxi variant? Follow YouTube video link shows similar installation in a brezza. Since the video isn’t in detail and the guy didn’t share much over phone wonder how it is possible to get the same. I am from Kerala and the shop featured in the video is in Delhi. And our local shops have no idea about this modification.

The one thing I miss the most are the steering wheel controls. Currently made an alternate arrangement using a Bluetooth remote system bought from aliexpress.

- Takes 30 mins to install
- Boot opens all the way up due to a mechanical extension inside. Small and hence does not effect not space
- I guess this is not recommended for versions with the spoiler, RS

Pretty convenient feature to have and an MGA, hence peace of mind. Thank You @wheelguy !

I checked with my SA, he does not have the part number, i checked in parts website like boodmo even there i couldn't find that.

Hi,

My Ciaz 1.5D parking sensor was not beeping upon reverse so today I took the car to MAS and they diagnosed that one sensor has gone dead out of four.
The non working Sensor was replaced under warranty. The new Sensor however has whitish colour and is easily visible on my stargaze blue colour. I enquired about it from the technician and he said that colour painted sensors are not available and if I want I will have to get it painted myself after paying money.

My car is almost a year old. My question is, are parking sensors really not available in different colours even from MAS?Maruti Ciaz : Official Review-img20200509122718.jpg

Sensors come in neutral colors and have to be painted.
