MS Seems to have updated the unit, mine lacks all of the Warning/Alert Options you have shared.

As for the Unit, I absolutely love it! Sharing below an accessory that MGP sells which integrates into the unit;

The original intention of MS is that we fix the phone there and then power it using the USB on the unit, they even have an App that integrates phone with the unit, however the option of a reliable holder with accessible and clutter free charging more than makes it worth it for me.

Wow, I was wondering what that hole was for. Curiously popped it out and didn't seem to have any function. Now it makes sense.

Maruti sells same HU with different firmware for different models. This unit is made by Panasonic. Tried the Harmon found on VXi+ and XL-6, warning function and mileage options won't work with our variant.

Daily off-roading stretch. Decently lit up by the low beam.

Wonderfully lit up by high beam. S-Presso takes this stretch comfortably than the EcoSport.

Issue with the two-piece bumper. Water seeps in between.

Maruti is still using DOT 3 all over its portfolio. I do not understand why.
Almost everyone has shifted now to DOT 4. My Ford and Mahindra had DOT 4 since a decade back. May be I am missing something here.
God only know why. Never seen even third party garages using DOT3 in recent times. Estilo has been running on DOT4 for ages. On the other hand, Suzuki two-wheelers use DOT4.

July 2022 - Updates

First accident. A flying nincompoop on a gearless came wrong side overtaking, hit our car and fled without stopping. Our driver swerved left, avoiding a head-on collision, minimizing the damage. Only fender got damaged and slight scratch on wheel cap. It fell off, but didn't break.

First service done at Marshal Automobiles at 18th day of purchase, clocking 995 km. Just checkup, no replacement. Got SMS updates on every step of work progress, even a message asking for work approval. Got the car in the evening, washed and vacuumed. They added cable ties to all wheel caps and filled up the windscreen washer with "the pouch" and didn't charge for either. It was a small reputed FNG converted to MAS, just 15-20 minutes walk from home. As expected, came feedback SMS, followed by customer care call.

Asked to install parcel tray, but no stock anywhere in Trivandrum. Inquired with distributor directly, and they said all parcel trays are in back order.

The original dealer also called shortly, asking for the reason for the switch. When I said the proximity and convenience, they offered pickup and drop next time. I would rather would stick with Marshal till they prove unworthy as I had bad experience with both No.1 dealers (both of them claimed). Scroll through the service centre list gave insight that many of the FNGs in town were Maruti Authorized.

Took a longer route back home to hit the milestone.
