Pros : Cheap

Cons : Pathetic servicing capabilities

Avoid LPG Maruti. Maruti does not have the service capabilities to service it. Avoid Spectra motors dealership at all costs.  They do not have the where with all to service any LPG cars. This is a car that  will fit your budget & being an LPG version product  you  will assume to have a cheaper running cost & there buy it. The extra cost of the LPG may get recovered within a year but the downside is that it will put you & your family in an extremely risky state. There are two notable points why I say this: 

1) Maruti’s claim (contrary to the claims made during sales as notified by its service garages) that Wagon R gives an average of 11 Kmpl (it’s actually just 10.5 Kmpl for both LPG & Petrol) & should be serviced every 5,000 Km. While it, therefore, has a high  running cost it also implies that you end up paying approx Rs 4,000/- (the average bill amount per paid service as per my experience) almost every 50 days (if you use your vehicle for 75 km or more per day). So the vehicle is actually better for short distance/ weekend user since they need to come back after 90 to 120 days. 

2) All Maruti service garages are an extension of some sales dealership of Maruti. These dealers are major stakeholders in Maruti’s fight to maintain market share & profits & therefore sales contingencies override the customer service expectations of its existing customers. Maruti has lost control over its service garages as they do nothing to ensure good quality mechanics are recruited at garages or services at these garages. Quantity is no replacement for quality. Maruti obviously  does not understand this.

    I am using Wagon R Duo of October,2006 that too running mostly on LPG,every 3 months I fill petrol tank.Till now Kilometers:85000Km, service at an interval of 10000Km, no problem till now only frictionable parts replaced i.e. Clutch plate,break liners/shoes,rear suspension and Wheels that's all. City average is 10.5km/lt with A.C & Highway is 15.5km/l without A.C.You have some problem with dealer, I suggest you to change the dealer if so.
