Since both cars share the same platform & manufactured at the same plant, I feel there is something terribly wrong with these two cars. I hope these are just one-of-a-case scenario and to date, I haven't come across anyone reporting severe issues with these two models.
There are a few cases reported on YouTube and the owners forums on other platforms. With their limited service network and unacceptably long times resolving bricked turbos / leaking CVTs, it's made me rethink the purchase and cancel my booking. Even if the failure rate is only as much as any other vehicle's, it's still a larger-than-expected proportion of the actual deliveries they have made (averaging at 3200 units per month). You could get a vehicle that's problem free, but there's no guarantee you won't have to wait for weeks for a technician to get your vehicle moving again. Worst case scenario, you get stranded in the middle of the road during a trip without a Nissan service center around for 50kms!

I cancelled my booking with Surya Nissan a week ago over an email. Given the stories of how dealers often make you sweat for a refund, I was expecting some sort of a delay. Thankfully, the process was quite smooth and I've received my refund today. Just thought I'll reassure people who might be worried about this part of the process.

I actually sent them a cancellation email on July 10th. I am still waiting for an acknowledgement forget the refund.

Can you please let me know to whom you sent the mail to? I remember including Nissan Customer Service, Surya Nissan Sales Manager and CRM.

Maybe I actually missed someone who can help sort out this mess.

If it is the Marathahalli Branch, talk to Mr Vishnuvardhan - he is the SM and has been very upfront in my experience. Not sure about his counterparts in other branches.

These are the email IDs I reached out to: [Mods, am assuming this is okay since these are not any individual's email IDs - please let me know if this should have been DM'd instead]
teamleader@suryanissan.in, cresales1@suryanissan.in, srcrm@suryanissan.co.in, crm@suryanissan.in, salesmanager@suryanissan.in, gmsales@suryanissan.co.in

You will need to attach scanned copies of your booking receipt and a cancelled cheque leaf for your account details.

I was initially looking at upgrading from my 2013 eon to a tiago top variant. The only things missing in the tiago from my perspective, were larger tyres and higher ground clearance since I have to drive through water-logged areas in Mumbai. So, when the magnite and kiger launched a sub-segment of their own, I took a test drive of both. In my opinion the magnite variants are more value for money and I got all the essential safety gear on the magnite XV turbo MT.
I booked the car on 19th July from Etco Nissan in Navi Mumbai. The sales executive was firm that no discounts can be offered and that the logistic charges (6500 Rs) are from Nissan itself and I am free to contact them. On the insurance front, when I told him that the quote is twice the amount from policybazaar he said he will try to negotiate on that front before actual delivery. I only received a congratulatory mail from Nissan India on 22nd July but it did not contain any reference number. Moreover, the TrackMyCar link on Nissanís website showed that my number is not registered with them. My sales executive asked me to wait for 1-2 weeks for the records to update.
I finally wrote a mail to Nissan customer care yesterday airing my concerns about waiving logistic charges and issues in TrackMyCar tracking. I got a callback today from their customer care department.
As regards my concern on TrackMyCar issues, the executive told me that they update the records monthly once on the 15th. Since I booked it on 19th, the records would only reflect after 15th August. Iím surprised that with all the digitization that has happened, they are only updating/refreshing the status once a month. I will wait and watch in this regard.
The executive then tells me that logistic charges are ďlocal chargesĒ that dealer levies and incurs. That I need to co-ordinate with the dealer alone to have them waived. I asked him to put it in writing and Iím quoting his reply that I received via email:


Quote:
As per our telephonic conversation regarding your concern related to logistics charges for the purchase of All New Nissan Magnite, we would like to inform you that logistics charges are local charges that the dealer would incur for helping a smooth delivery to you.

These will include fuel in the car at the time of delivery, transit insurance risk and other associated costs towards delivery of the car.

Also, we request you to get in touch with your dealer if you would like more details on the charges and if you need them to waive the charges.
Iíve seen in the thread that a couple of tbhpians were able to get the charges waived by writing to Nissan. Can anyone guide me on how to escalate this further.

Please escalate the matter to Nissan India. My dealer in Kolkata, Autorelli Nissan categorically told me that its illegal to charge handling charges from consumers.

Thanks for the confirmation. Any email ids of senior Nissan executives I could write to? The customer care executive basically told me it's upto me to negotiate with dealer and that it's a local charge! Whatever that means...

Guys, Nissan India has changed. They are aggressive and seem to have tightened control over the dealers. One escalation email and the dealer's tone changed from "we can cancel your booking and refund you the amount immediately" to "why did you complain to Nissan"

If things go this way Nissan India's fortunes will rise again. Good for the consumer to have an underdog challenge HMIL and MSIL
Hi @castiel & @akg, could you guys help with me the contact information on how you escalated this issue? My initial email to customercare.nissan@email.nissan.in has not yielded anything. The responded the very next day though.

Nissan MAGNITE 1.0 Turbo MT trashes Maruti VITARA BREZZA 1.5 NA MT in a drag race by POWERDRFIT.



BREZZA is quite old now, Maruti should replace the car ASAP before the sales go down.
MAGNITE should aim the BREZZA in sales as well, looks like BREZZA is the top selling UV for July 21. Meanwhile Cyrus gels well with the POWERDRFIT team.

I wrote to various Nissan Top Honchos by looking up their linkedin and trying combinations of email addresses tested on an email verification service. Took an hour but was worth it I guess. This purchase was seriously the worst car buying experience I could have imagined. It helped that in my case I had already negotiated and documented all points via email dated 10th Nov 2020, and once the dealer tantrums started I sent an email to nissan

Edit : Nissan customer support is useless. I actually complained to Nissan execs about the lack of any support / reply by Nissan customer support. The CS team just redirects you to the dealer. They don't do anything. The car is extremely nice and VFM but the support is non-existent
