Guys

History:

Our family has a 17 year old Maruti 800 and finally after years of postponing ( Father has govt car from office) we finally decided to buy a new car due to social pressures ( people also saying now its time you upgrade)..

We initially wanted to buy a swift petrol and went to showroom with this bent of mind.But many people advised us to buy diesel car as running a petrol car was getting difficult to less mileage and higher cost. Infact diesel per km cost is half of petrol.

So we almost finalised swift diesel but then the new dezire which was just 40k higher and looked fat superiors in looks and boot space . So we finally booked dezire LDI with 6 months waiting period . I kept requesting dealer to give me my car as many people i knew were getting dezire LDI in 2 months. But dealer was arrogant and since we complained to maruti he send us letter he wont give car in 6 month also.
This made me very angry [anger] as maruti was not all helping me. Finally i complained to www.akosha.com and they sent a letter to maruti and dealer and the equation changed. The dealer apologised and gave my car today in just 7 days [lol]

I have taken my car delivery of my Dezire LDI - "" SCORPION KING" today.

Price on road on Delhi is - Rs 6,67,000 ( 4 yr warranty and insurance included). I took insurance zero depreciation for 17k from royal sundaram as it was cheaper by dealers by 3k

I only got mudflaps as free by dealer [glasses]

I am so excited ...
Tommorow i will go to Motor concept, kirti nagar to get acessories installed.

Re: Ownership review- Maruti Dezire LDI ( SCORPION KING)

Congratulations for the new car.

After so many days of restless waiting, you got it finally.
(your restlessness was felt by all of us in many threads and we really empathised with you)

Don't look for mileage from day one.
Let the running in period go smoothly and then let 2 - 3 services be over to check for mileage.

Re: Ownership review- Maruti Dezire LDI ( SCORPION KING)

Hi
Today i went to Motor concept,Kirti nagar and installed a lot of acessories. Will post detailed info and pics tommrow [:)]

Driving :

I find the dezire very easy to drive due to power steering and proper size (nor large nor short). Also most Important i feel BRAKES are very good . Some people are said to complain about braking but i feel brakes are very good . I am not facing any issues. Even at 80-90 km/ph i am hardly facing any issues. Its a breeze. [:)]

You could have got Xenos, very nice service. I have been using from 3 months no issues.

Those wheel caps look good.

OT : What about your 800, are you going to keep it ? Hope it stays with you.

Congrats so finally you got your car .
Rather then reverse sensors fit a camera and get the display in the hu of your music system .
Though they don't look bad why don't you paint the side mirrors and door handles in white colour it must not be expensive even if you do that from maruti a.s.s .
Curious to see your pics now .
