Look and Style LOOK AND STYLE IS SAME AS ITS EARLIER VARIANTS Comfort ITS A COMFORTABL CAR, REAR SEAT IS SPACIOUS CAN ACCOMODATE THREE WELL. Pickup PICK UP IS VERY DISAPPOINTING, TAKES LOT OF TIME TO OVERTAKE ON HIGHWAYS. Mileage MILIEAGE IS NOT UPTO THE MARK, ITS ONLY 14-15 KMPL IN CITY OR ON HIGHWAY,AGAINST WHAT COMPANY CLAIMS 18-21. NOOOOOOOOOOOO NOT AT ALL. Needs to improve ITS BREAKING IS POOR IN COMPARISON TO ITS NEAR RIVALS AND SUSPENSION ALSO NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED BIG TIME. Overall Experience MY EXPERIENCE OF OWNING THIS CAR IS VERY POOR. WITHIN AN HOUR OF DELIVERY THERE WAS LEAKAGE IN FUEL FILTER ASSEMBLY AND WORST PART IS SERVICE STATIONS DONT HAVE THE SPARE IN STOCK AS ITS NEW CAR. IVE TO LEAVE MY CAR VERY FIRST DAY AT SERVICE STATION FOR REPAIR. MILEAGE IM GETTNG IS 14-15 KMPL IN CITY AND ON HIGHWAYS AS WELL. NOW THERE IS SOME STRANGE SOUND STARTED TO COME FROM PUMP WHICH IS VERY ANNOYING.

    I OWN SX 4 TOO ITS BEEN 20 DAYS I BAUGHT IT , I DIDNT COME ACROSS ANY SUCH PROBLEM SORRY FOR UR BAD EXPERIENCE WITH THE CAR BUT ITS GOOD, THE TURBO CHARGE IS ALSO DOING ITS JOB IF U CAN FEEL IT, MILAGE I GOT 13 KMPL WHEN I HAD TO GO ON A 600 KM TRIP TO A VILLAGE BECAUSE ROAD WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGHT. BUT I WILL SOON TEST ITS MILAGE ON EXPRESS HIGHWAY AND WRITE MORE, I ALREADY HAVE MORE THAN 10 SCRTCHES ON IT HOPE I WONT HAVE ANYMORE, GEAR SHIFTING SOMETIMES IS NOISEY... TOTALLY I LOVE MY CAR HOPE U WILL SOON TOO

    Yes abhishek my experience so far is not so good, although i love my car. MILEAGE is a big concern now. It gave 14kmpl on jaipur highway, where i drove it around at a speed of 90kmph, and it took time to accelerate over that. I LOVE TO GET MORE COMMENTS ON SX4 DIESEL AS I AM STILL NOT SATISFIED WITH THE CAR PERFORMANCE.

    My experience is more or less similar to Anuj. I bought ZDI on 5thDec11 from Pasco Gurgaon and as soon as I got onto the driver's seat there was a problem. The door would not close unless I pull it pull harder and harder a couple of times. Within a week the car was back to service station to get the door fixed, some improvement but it's still misaligned. Next problem started in approx 10 days. Every time I apply break there was some sound from rear end which service agent noted as 'dhak - dhak' after a test drive. After first service, the break problem was fixed but started more problems. The mileage dropped from 16 to 13 and in a couple of days there are severe vibrations in the car. Keeping foot on the paddles is a pain due to the vibrations. My car has been to the service station 3 times during last 2 months and my dissatisfaction is growing after visit.

    seems ur facing the problems early... ihad one of the very first cars since launched on 27th Feb...till date have done 28000 and the mileage is 18 in city and 19 to 20 on highway... no probs with overtaking on highway as it easily goes 120 in a zzzzooooom... please check ur cars for tyre pressure air filter etc.

    Actually I wish to go for Maruti SX4 ZDI Model but after reading Anju's feed back I'm confused . Shall I go for it or not ? Give me better options.

    mukesh |20 May,2011 03:33:38 PM

    i think you should go for it bhalchandra desle i have sx 4 deisel zdi and it give about 21-23 km per litre and i think its ossom,

    anuj |20 May,2011 05:17:07 PM

    its great if you are getting 21-22kmpl. You are lucky in that case only i can say this. But the feed back from dealers and service station i got is that it gives only 13-15kmpl in city- highway.

    deepu |13 Feb,2012 10:28:44 AM

    go for it is the word far better than the verna and vento in terms of overall ownership.

  • devesh |18 Jun,2011 10:00:11 AM

    Hi all; I have purchased my SX4-Diesel in March 2011. I was having 2 problems in the vehicle but got it rectified from the dealer immediately. I am getting a milage of 18-18.5kms on highway and 15-16 in the city. Its a good performer except the low pickup as its a 1250CC engine compared to that of the Vento and the Verna. I selected the SX4 because of the reliable Maruti brand (Specifically their service network around the country) and the strict regulation they have put on the dealers regarding customer staisfaction. The maintenence value is also very low. I got my third service done at Rs.2650/- only.

  • Nair |27 Mar,2012 05:47:27 PM

    I've completed 5200 kms so far, mates its an awsome deal !! SX4 is the car faaaar better than verna(low clearance high maintainence low highway stability) and vento ( same issues nt wrth looks for 10 lakhs) and linea which is having poor service back up ... im getting 19 kms ..its agr8 car worth buy ..done give ur ears to those branded scraps, be practical ...any car will have issues ..its so childish to cry aloud in forums like this ... Get it fixed from a service station ,,,it wont be as far as frm ur hm ..hppy ride !! :)

  • Ravi |18 Apr,2012 02:11:43 AM

    Mileage cannot be over the limit specified by the OEM or ARAI.... Drop in pick up can be improved by pushing one gear up.....clean the air filters.... Avoid too much accelaration at the time of start or move... and avoid unnecessary accelaration as well as braking..... Low mileage can be due to traffic conditions, Handling of accelaration VS break or the car may need an inspection from an qualified expert. Pls choose a good service dealer. Beyond all these you may write to Maruti directly for further assistance and solution. I am writing to you post my experience with my SX4 and issues and Maruti Suzuki India. They are a bit complacent but you may have to push them a bit. The views are only to help identify the problem not to teach anybody.
