That might be on the higher side but seems reasonable considering reputed shops have proper tools and not merely an underaged boy with a screwdriver.

With several void warranty stories one keeps hearing/seeing on internet, you can never be too careful.

Thanks for the reply. Cheers.

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

A preceptive on why Grand Vitara/ HYryder make a better choice in the mid SUV segment!

The affected lot was manufactured between August 8, 2022 and November 15, 2022, the country’s largest carmaker said in a regulatory filing.

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

Came across a Grand Vitara yesterday in Bangaiore that seems to have been hit on the back quite badly. Attaching a pic of the car (pardon the quality as it was taken from my car at night, in the traffic), but looking at the damage, wondering if the build quality is light or is just that the impact was too much.

Re: Maruti Grand Vitara Review

As far as i know this was hit by a Volkswagen Ameo and the Ameo actually had quite a lot of damage to its front. The post was there on youtube, which actually praised the build quality of Grand Vitara after the accident.

I can't be absolutely sure this is the same accident but the impact is exactly the same, the colour, dents on the backside are exactly what i saw in that youtube video. Its quite a famous one, goes by the name of Nikhil Rana, who keeps posting on the build quality of cars in India.

You're right, just watched the video, it is the same car. I had spotted the vehicle right past the NICE road exit (can see the the NICE road toll price list on the Youtube video). What is not visible from this video as well as the photo posted by me is the damage to the underbody parts as I could see the silencer and other parts that were damaged (visible when you see the vehicle from behind from a distance).

I have seen many reviewers and youtubers talk about the lightness of the doors and the thud sound they make. I also agree that the safety of the vehicle is not determined by the sheet metal quality but when we take a look at the curb weight figures of the new Brezza and Grand Vitara, it is evident that some cost-cutting has been done. If we take a look at the top end variant of Brezza (ZXI+ AT) and the Grand Vitara (Alpha smart hybrid), Brezza is 10 Kgs heavier despite being smaller that Grand Vitara. All the features and engine of Grand Vitara as well as the New Brezza are similar. Leatherette seats, panel and increased dimensions must result in higher curb weight. Suzuki has not revealed the curb weight figures of brezza but they can be found in owners manual. I guess Suzuki has compromised on the sheet metal quality in order to bring the car at an affordable price. Lets hope the platform stays true to the crash test rating.

Hi,
Has any one used the puddle lights on the Grand Vitara? How are they compared to the other brand vehicles?

Any ideas on the waiting period of the Grand Vitara? Please advise if any inputs.
