Maruti Alto 800 Rear View

The Maruti 800 once was the largest selling car not only in India, but as a single model, around the world too. It was a house hold name and every one of us has either owned or experience the car at various stages of our lives.

Design wise, up frontyou notice the huge air-intake dam and the blackened out part of the bumper (seems similar to the Renault Pulse). The two-part grille looks good and modern. The headlamps seems to have taken cues from the Ford Figo while at the rear, the tail lamps somewhat look similar to the Hyundai i20. But over the current Alto, it has a increased ground clearance. Overall the design is good looking and a massive leap over the current Alto. There are six colour options to choose from. The raised height is clearly evident in the pictures and that is for a better ride and handling of bad roads. .... read more

Poor Service provided by Maruti
Posted on 3 Jul 08 at 11:31 am

Pros Good Mileage, but poor service by company

Cons Poor service provided by company

I own a Maruti 800AC bought in Sep 2005 through Competent Automobile, Delhi, ever since I bought my vehicle I had been through extensive trouble, the complete experience had been extremely poor with Competent Automobile, Gazipur, Delhi. But the current experience with Competent Automobile, Gurgaon was a nightmare experience and made me feel regretted about opting for a brand called MARUTI. Now without wasting much of your time I shall share my experience with you. I along with my family was going to Jhunjhunu (Rajasthan) on 12th April 08, we started from home at around 545pm and after crossing Manasar we meet with a massive accident at 830am, though none of us were hurt, but the vehicle was in bad shape and it had to been taken to nearest Maruti service station. After clearing all formalities like police complaint etc, I reached at competent Automobile at 430pm, the vehicle was received by Mr Ashish in Body Shop, I was given a time frame of 10days for repairing the vehicle i.e. 22nd April was the delivery day. Now to see the progress of work I reach Competent Automobile on 17th April at 130pm without informing them, I was surprise to see that the vehicle was not attended by Competent was keep in poor share, i.e. full of dust etc. I got furious seeing this and reported the matter to Mr. Pankaj Narula, GM Maruti Udyog as soon as I got back to my office at 2.30pm. I didnt receive any reply from Maruti from next 4 to 5 days, I was really surprise to see such a poor service from them, so I decided to give him a call, but he was not available to talk, later I spoke to Mr. KK Gaur, who was heading Maruti Service, north. After several calls and email I finally got my vehicle on 25th April 08, but there was no body to explain the job carried out on the vehicle, neither the company provided me copies of bills. The list of problems were never ending. I had contacted following people but non of them looked into the problems, Mr. Pankaj Narula (GM Maruti, Mr. Ramaswamy (chairman, National Insurance) and Mr. Kamal Kumar (CEO, Competent Automobile) I feel like being cheated by Competent Automobile, Maruti Udyog Limited and National Insurance Company. Now I am planning to approach the consumer cost of India to file a legal case against the companies. I would request you all not to buy any products from above companies, customers dont have any importance to them. Thanks for reading my review.
