  1. I am disappointed after hearing this news. I am the owner of Maruti Suzuki Ritz and my car was in the list of faulty engines.
    Its a Joke that they are replacing free of cost. Let me understand what is free of cost. My car is already in warranty and all the cars which are faulty are in warrantly and they have to do it by force free of cost as the cars in warranty.

    Very disappointed that my car ran only 3000 kms and engine has to be opened up.

    1. Mr. Singh,

      I am also the owner of the faulty car…u are right…and have even extended warranty upto 5 Year wherein they are supposed to do all engine manufacturing defect…free of cost…It is just a game of Goodwill…
