I own an Ertiga Zdi for last 8 months. Since last 4+ months, I am facing issue related to loss of power. The car has visited the service center 4 times. Issue has recurred every time I took the car back. Below are the issues: 1 - Loss of power at 1.7 to 2K rpm followed by lot of smoke at exhaust - occurs when AC is switched on 2 - considerable vibrations at 5th gear just before power loss 3 - Steering jammed while pressed the clutch to bring it back to lower gear followed by power loss from engine. After I engaged clutch, the power came back to steering. My dealer is cooperative and helps me out in terms of providing a standby car and working on the problem with Maruti engineers. But the problem persists till date. I have lost confidence in the car and Maruti service.

    I bought Ertiga ZDI a month back. With three or four people inside, its performance is more than expected. I sold my Innova before I decided for Ertiga. Fuel economy is as expected. 3rd gear acceleration is not satisfactory. In other gears acceleration is anticipated. Are the gears in Geometric Progression or not? It costed me 10.35 lac Rs. on road in Vijayawada, Andhra. I am happy by its performance excepting in 3rd gear. Compared to Innvoa it is highly fuel efficient, and environmental friendly. First week it gave me 16 kmpl while I travelled from Vijayawada to Bhubaneswar. Interiors are okay for its price but can be better even if it is expensive by another Rs. 15ooo. Srihari Prasad Anne.
