I just received my Maruti ZDI after a lot of wait and agitation with Maruti. Anyways i had booked White ZDI but had to compromise for Silky silver. Its a good color and not a bad option of only changing color but getting the ZDI variant(considering many had to switch from ZDI to VDI).
I have no complaints against Maruti officials who have been really helpful. I just think dealers will be dealers and never improve.
Ertiga has everything going for it -twin ac, adjustable rear head rest (important for chauffeur driven car- missed in Toyota Etios),mileage (better than Xylo), ABS/ Airbags ,7 seats, rear wiper, amazing space between head and car roof, etc.
So far i have got mileage of 13.67 kpl (after first full fuel tank). This is in peak Mumbai traffic where distance of my home to office of 38kms takes two hours daily. Twice i have taken my different families out on short trip and they been very comfortable (all three rows occupied- six adults and one child on both occasions). No complaints of any space crunch. In fact in last row 2 avg size adults and small kid can sit comfortably. AC has been really good so far (actual results can be known earliest in Mumbai October heat). Ride quality in driver seat and front seat is amazing.
Only concern is ride quality in middle row which is bouncy on highways at a speed. To stay firm i have to put on Seat belts.
My experience with Spectra Motors Thane was horrible. They did not deliver audio remote in first instance and after much follow ups gave me probably Old Test drive car remote. Even during accessories installation they didn’t clean the car well and had to resend it twice.
I swear never to go to Spectra Motors again and recommend everyone to avoid Spectra Motors.
To sum up there is no better Car/ LUV in sub 10-12 lac segment than Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. One has to patiently fight it out with dealer/ company to get timely delivery of the car and scratch your head to find a good dealer/ASS (thankfully in Maruti there are some good ASS).
Will post more reviews once i do more kms and use the car more.
