You have full right to test the car for a few kilometers before purchasing it. Just request the salesperson and I’m sure he would be kind enough to arrange one.

ok i will ask him, but even if he allows i dont think its possible to go to the stockyard again and TD it.i think i should trust MARUTI , as all other things in the car seem to be in good condition.and kindly answer my other doubts also.thanks

Make rest of the payment at the time of receiving the car.

Not necessary. You car will get HSRP number plates I think?

Get it earlier if the registration is done. Most of the times, dealer isn’t held responsible for damages once the car is sold.

Is the stockyard near to RTO? I’d suggest taking it from the dealership (where rest of the rituals are also performed).

Yes. You will get just one all-inclusive warranty that takes care of the entire car. Refer to the ownership manual to find what’s covered and what’s not.

You can make the major payment now and secure the remaining sum for the time of receiving the car (as already planned).

HSRP stands for High Security Registration Plate. Government has made them mandatory for new cars (http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/fo...ates-hsrp.html).

most maruti cars have a waiting list. 8 kms is pretty decent and also all the plastics on the seats are intact. you should not go wrong with this vehicle. Your vin also showed your vehicle is October made and everything in the pictures seems perfect.

My pleasure. Although it’s good to take a test-drive but don’t be much worried about it if the car overall looked faultless (and acceptable) during that short drive.

ok that's so nice of you,but actually it was not that kind of TD[:)] where we can check or identify the faults.just a forward 1st gear and the reverse gear about 10 to 15 metres.[embarass]

waiting list means you would not get a 6 month old car for sure
8 kms on odometer shows the car has just done a minimal distance which is highly acceptable.

i can see your excited and ur nervous energy is showing in your posts. lol.

Re: New Car Pre-Delivery Inspection – An Exhaustive Guide
 
I WANT ONE MORE HELP FROM YOU GUYS.when i was surfing on the net,i was checking the vin decoding websites but all websites are saying that my vin is invalid.i know its not safe to show it online but kindly help me in this regard.it says that my check digit is invalid.on eof the replies from one site was like this:
The VIN you entered (MA3EWDE1S00487821) has an invalid check digit. The check digit is a value encoded into the VIN in order to protect against altering VINs illegally. Since the check digit is invalid the VIN that you entered is not the correct VIN for your car.
i had asked wildon also but he has not replied yet.my last 2 letters are KC which means octo 2012 but what about other 17 letters and their meaning?

hi i just completed all formalities of loan for my new Spark LS-LPG

i told showroom that call me when my car comes to their yard
But today when i went showroom they says your car at showroom they showed me car and said accessories fitting going on now so can inspect later

que: if some problem observed after fitment of accessories ;can i ask to replace vehicle?[confused]

Jango 15th November 2012 02:04 PM

Re: New Car Pre-Delivery Inspection – An Exhaustive Guide
 
@sanjugalande

Now you cannot get the car replaced as the accessory fitting is done and also it must be RTO registered by now. but dont worry if the car looks overall in a good shape then things should be fine. All the best for your new car.

You should have performed a quick check up on the spot. The dealer cannot replace the car once it has been registered. Normally there should not be a major fault with the car but a thorough inspection is still recommended to be on the safer side. Anyways congrats on Spark. Keep us updated.
