Routine maintenance queries regarding my AMT Vitara Brezza

Hello folks. This is my first post here and I apologise if the topic has already been covered. My daily driver is a Vitara Brezza AMT VDi which is now 2 years old with a trouble free running of 13000kms. I don't have extended warranty and hence am not obliged to get the car serviced from MASS. I would like to get the servicing done from an FNG under my supervision and have a few questions regarding the same.
1. Will this service be any different from a manual Brezza service? If yes, how?
2. My running is 90% in city traffic. The clutch in my manual petrol cars last for 30-40k km, while I get the condition checked during service each time. Since there is no clutch pedal through the feel of which I can crudely judge the condition of the clutch and the different clutch life in AMTs, I feel it is more important for me to get it checked. Will the process of inspecting the clutch plate and assembling everything back together be the same as a manual Vitara Brezza?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Hello All,

My friend is getting his Brezza delivered in few days. We went for a PDI and I noticed that it was around 100 kms on the odo which was strange for me. When questioned, we were told that it's quite normal for Maruti as once the truck reaches Blore outer, they will drive the vehicle from Blore outer to Maruti yard for PDI and then loaded again into a truck which will bring the car to Chennai. When the truck reaches Chennai outer, they will drive the car from Poonamale (place in Chennai) to Arumbakkam for dealer's PDI. Later the car is brought to ABT showroom in Guindy. They claim every car will have min 80-150 kms on the odo. Not sure how far is this true? Well, I don't think we have a choice now as the car has reached the dealer 5 months after booking. If we opt for another car, this might delay friend's car ownership by another 4-5 months. Still, I want to know if it's a normal thing in Chennai for Maruti. Please confirm. Thanks in advance!

The best way to confirm would be to check other cars at the same dealership and look at their odo. If all have similar figures, they may be speaking the truth. But if not, then inspection of the car should be thorough.

Somehow their story is pathetic. Why would a truck unload a car for Chennai at Bangalore and then again get it reloaded in a truck to Chennai? Why would PDI be done twice? Is it the same dealership across the 2 states? Sounds fishy.

Do ensure that your friend gets all this crap story documented as an email or on paper by the dealership. It may be needed later on.

Pleasantly surprised to report that after this service, my fuel efficiency has increased by 1.5-2kmpl, confirmed after 2 tankfulls.

Thanks a lot. I did ask them to show the other Brezza which was there but they denied it saying each car will have different readings. It definitely seemed to be very fishy. Just for the sake of my friend, I did not get into an argument. Probably I will get this to showroom manager's attention during the delivery. Also, as suggested, will ask my friend to get this documented. Thanks a lot!

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Anyone took deisel AMT to hills? I own a ZDI AMT 2019 model and crave for Ladakh trip. My previous experience of driving on steep incline is not very encouraging hence asking experts to shed some light on this.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Hi efgritesh,

I drive a 2018 ZDI plus AMT brezza and very confidently I'll say that I have covered most of the Hill Stations in North (almost all of them).
I drove from Noida to Bangalore when I moved to this beautiful Silicon City and have covered Ooty, Kodaikanal and a few more nearby destinations and have not faced any issues in terms of power, braking or suspension.

You might need to use the manual mode while coming down to make sure it doesn't get into higher gears and makes it difficult for you to slow down on hair pin bends.

About Ladakh trip -

I covered Ladakh,Pangong Lake and Nubra Valley in 2016 in my (old version) Ford Figo and it went pretty smooth other than power loss in a few places because there wasn't adequate oxygen for the man or the machine.
Brezza Diesel AMT equipped with the manual mode,bigger tyres and almost 200mm ground clearance should be super easy.


All the best.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

So my Oct'2016 Brezza completed 96,000 kms. Absolutely no plans to sell it. It's a gem of an engine and with all the DEF stories for the BS6 diesel, it makes no sense, specially when my drive is limited to 20 kms every week, that too in the hills.

Recently got the alignment done and the car is ready for new shoes in the next 3-5,000 kms. I have an upcoming trip and plan to get it changed before that.

What are my best options?

Michelin, Yoko, Continental. Also does anyone know any good place in Coimbatore/Mysore to get the new tyres.

Thanks!

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Dear All,

Recently covered approx 2741 kms in my 2019 Brezza ZDI+ AMT, spread over 6 days, 5 states and more than 10 cities,

It was our 3rd longest drive within a day, previous 2 were close to 1100 Kms each covered in approx. 16 hours, Bangalore to Nagpur and Lucknow to Adilabad and this 3rd one closed at 1020 kms, all 3 drives were scintillating and quite satisfying.

The car has done approx. 35,500 KMs till now and still drives like a new car.

During the Journey from Lucknow to Ujjain, midway on a cement highway, the rear tyre developed a crack in the middle of the tyre, swapped with the spare tyre and continued my Journey till Ujjain and then to Indore, wherein, i bought a new tyre - Apollo Alnac 4G (since other tyres were the same). Replaced since majority of the trip was still left and didnt wanted a chance with the family. Now, the car is running with 2 new tyres, 2 old tyres (33K old) and 1 old tyre as spare.

Other than this incident, the entire trip was seamless and enjoyable. The drive was awesome and the car returned 20 KMPL over the entire journey (with 4 passengers and boot full with luggage) and some spirited driving between Pune & Bangalore (only high speed warning reminded us that we reached 120 kmph).

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Where is the cabin air intake for 2016 Brezza located?
Both recirculation intake and fresh air intake.

I am getting a slightly mushy smell when starting AC, especially if not used for a couple of days.
I did change the cabin air filter, cleaned the filter compartment. The smell is still there. It smells a bit like vinegar.

Trying to find the cause.

Re: Maruti Vitara Brezza : Official Review

Is the automatic transmission box in 2020 Vitara Brezza sourced from AISIN or JATCO?
