Yes it is confirmed that we don't have CNG filling gas stations here and hence maruti is not selling CNG cars in Ratnagiri.[thinking]

Looks like you had a blasting Diwali, literally[;)].

Good to know that your car is doing well. Expecting a nice photoshoot of your ride.

Re: It's Time for SX4 Diesel Celebration - 10000+ Km Update

Hello Everyone,

Sorry for long silence due to unavoidable circumtances. I could not update my ownership experience.

Here is my update on ownership of SX4 after 10,000+ Km.

Service:

First Service:- Rs. 3045/- (after 1000 Kms)
Second Service:- Rs. 0/- (after 5000 Kms)
Third Service:- Rs. 4764/- (after 10000 Kms)

Overall Fuel Cost:

I have calculated complete cost of fuel considering Avg. Mileage with 100% AC on i.e 17.66 Kmpl and total money spend on filling Diesel in my car. Mind that I live in hilly area where 90% roads are Ghatts.

The cost of fuel is coming Rs. 2.9 per Kilometer.

Total cost per Kilometer ( Service + Fuel ) after 10,000 Km = 2.9 + .78 = 3.68 Rs. per kilometer.

Guys it was not so smooth experience with my SX4 because I faced Fuel Pump Problem. I share this experience in seperate thread in the technical section.[frustration]

Other than above problem everything was excellent about my SX4. I love my car.[:D]

Hello All,

I have renewed Insurance of my Car. I got many offers but the best were mentioned below two.

1. The new India Assurance ( Through MSIL)

Total Value (IDV)= Rs. 737253/-

Schedule of premium as follows

A. OWN DAMAGE

Vehicle & Accessories Rs. 14118/-

Total Rs. 14,118/-

Less

a) For Anti-theft Devices= Rs. 353/-
b) 50% NCB= Rs. 6883/- (30% from my Alto and 20 % from SX4)
Subtotal (deductions)= Rs. 7235/-

Zero Depriciation Premium = Rs. 5529/-

TOTAL (A) = Rs. 12411/-

B. LIABILITY

Vehicle = Rs. 1110/-

Add
a) Compulsory PA Cover Premium= Rs. 100/-
b) Additional PA Cover Premium (50000 per person) For 5 Person = Rs. 125/-
c) Legal Liability (WC) to Driver= Rs. 50/-

TOTAL (B)= Rs. 1385/-

Grand Total (A+B)= Rs. 13796/- + Service Tax@ 12.36%= Rs. 1705/-

Total Premium= Rs. 15501/-

2. The new India Assurance ( Directly)

Total Value (IDV)= Rs. 783331/-

Schedule of premium as follows

A. OWN DAMAGE

Vehicle & Accessories Rs. 17491/-

Total Rs. 17491/-

Less

a) 50% NCB= Rs. 8745/- (30% from my Alto and 20 % from SX4)
Subtotal (deductions)= Rs. 8745/-

Zero Depriciation Premium = Rs. 3133/-

TOTAL (A) = Rs. 11880/-

B. LIABILITY

Third Party premium = Rs. 1110/-

Add
a) Compulsory PA Cover Premium= Rs. 100/-
b) Additional PA Cover Premium (100000 per person) For 4 Person = Rs. 200/-
c) Legal Liability (WC) to Driver= Rs. 50/-

TOTAL (B)= Rs. 1460/-

Grand Total (A+B)= Rs. 13340/- + Service Tax@ 12.36%= Rs. 1648/-

Total Premium= Rs. 14989/-

I got best deal with same company but with different brokers.

If we compare above two then I got good IDV, more deductions and best liabilty in case of taking directly from the company (The new India Assurance). Also with least premium.[clap]

MSIL is second best option as compared to National Insurance and others.
