Quoting my own post to list out the features of remote lock available at Nexa. I thought it might help someone browsing for the same.

A friend of mine is interested in the Baleno Petrol Zeta or Alpha Manual. Any idea what is the waiting period in Bangalore currently ? How soon can one expect delivery from the date of booking?

As for remote lock, he says the box will have only Maruti logo on it. Guess what you said is right. But when I asked for features and model number he did not seem to know a thing. He should know the features or at least provide me a model number

Would you mind throwing some light on its vital features?
I guess the Sony HU quoted to you is the touch screen model.

Regarding the keyless entry system - it will be basic system offering lock unlock with sound / lock unlock silently / car finder function (All other features as well as mentioned in your above post). Will have three buttons on the remote. Nexa will surely have Nippon OEM keyless entry system with them. You can ask for a demo of the system installed in some other car in their premises.

Have you opted for 4 years warranty plan? Only issue from getting this all installed from outside is possibility of warranty breach. I am not sure how Maruti will identify if the installation is done from Nexa or outside accessories shop. When you are taking delivery of your car? If the waiting period is long, ask the dealer if they can get other model of Sony HU with them.

According to the update that I have got , 8 weeks for alpha and 12 for the other variants. I have been quoted an official waiting period of 8 weeks for the alpha booking.

Official waiting period is 12 weeks, that's what they write in the customer docket. But in most cases, you get the car in 4 weeks - especially here in Delhi NCR. But this is assured that waiting will not be extended by 12 weeks.

Folks

I have a favour to ask of you.

My mom will be one of the major users of the car. Can't get her to try out the seat in each car (she is 83 and with bad knees). Still deciding between the Baleno & Jazz. The price & equipment is the cause of confusion!

Can someone please measure the following dimensions and let me know?

- height of seat from ground, front & rear
- height of seat from floor of the car, front & rear
- depth of rear seat, seat lip to seat back.

I suspect the Jazz will be better than the Baleno but would like confirmation.

These dimensions are not available any where. I searched.
Thanks

Sridhu, I understand the situation you are in. If this is going to be the only car in the family drop the idea of buying either jazz or baleno. Go for something that your mom can "climb in" without having to bend down. Any mini SUV will fit the bill-breeza, nexon or duster.

We have a Crysta. But my mom finds it difficult to get in to it.

For her condition, she finds regular cars to be easier to get in & out of as compared to SUVs like the Crysta or Duster, my current cars.

I anticipate most of the city driving to be in the automatic hatch. Hence this will be an important consideration.


Did some research today. My measurements below (seat depth only for the rear seat. Most front seats are comfortable:

I find the Baleno front seat depth to be a bit lacking, leading to under thigh pain on the right leg that needs to be constantly extended at an angle to work the accelerator.

Definitely, comparing with my previous car (Ritz) the front seats are not anywhere near as comfortable. But I still find them better than Fiat Linea/Punto and a few others.

That's great. After how many days of replacing rear struts you got the call and what is your make month/year? I am wondering what would be the need to replace entire suspension set.

Default Baleno - Reverse Parking Camera - Feedback Requested

I have almost finalized the purchase of a new Baleno (petrol), but need advice on one point. For my purpose, the reverse parking camera is mandatory, but unfortunately, it is offered in only the top variant (Alpha). Other than the camera, all my requirements are met by the second version itself (Delta), so if possible, I would like to avoid having to go up two variants just for the camera (and spend more than 1.5L+)

I have read in these forums about the suspect quality of the camera accessory offered by Nexa. Nexa offered me two options - one on the IRVM and on the passenger dashboard. I am not keen on the IRVM version.

Can any (non-alpha) Baleno owners provide feedback if they have got the dashboard version installed from Nexa (or outside) and how they found the quality. I would not want the whole new car experience spoiled due to a sub-standard camera. As usual, Nexa says that if I get this done outside, it will void the warranty.

Mods - please move the post if it has been posted in the wrong section.

I own a Delta CVT and have the dashboard varient installed. Gets the job done.

However, most times I park only using mirrors and judgement. The reason I installed the camera was my office parking is beside genset that has a quater wall ( height less than bumper) which is not visible without camera. Also sometimes mechanics leave heavy tools in my parking that might not be visible without 📷
