Please Dont buy Maruti Dzire Zxi and Zdi Variants
After a clear comparison of various branded Cars in compact sedan category, I decided to buy swift desire zxi+.Really I like it very much based on its comfort , Aesthetic look and various premium features. I found one major drawback of this car is the spare Tyre size in Zxi plus and Zdi plus variants.
The spare tyre of this Zxi+ and Zdi+ varients having smaller in size(R14) compared with all other wheels(R15 alloy).I inquired this with Maruti showroom dealer and they explained to me that this is the policy of Maruti.The spare tyre purpose is only for emergency. I accepted. As per their provision we can use spare tyres only for few kilometers because of different size and aspect ratio of spare tyre. My questions are
1. If the purpose of spare tyre is only for emergency then Why Maruti don?t follow this policy to other variants(Lxi,Vxi,Ldi,Vdi).Only blaming the customers who decided to purchase higher variants.
2. During a long traveling and night riding if any one of the tyres punctured how its possible to use smaller spare tyre for a long remaining pass.
3. During very smaller damage of tyre using in the car, Is it better to replace it into new one (costlier) instead of interchange it to spare if its available in the same size.
The periodic 5 tyre rotation is not possible in this varient because of smaller spare tyre.4 tyre rotation leads to less life cycle of tyres. All we know the fact that the spare tyre will deteriorate soon if it is not using in long duration.
The Maruti company should consider at least change the spare tyre size to R15 .May be no need to provide spare alloy wheel for its higher variant costumers.
