Exchanging your old car for a new one

Navnit Maruti

Selling your old car for a newer and more technologically advanced model has been the tradition of generations, but single and multi-brand automobile dealerships today offer their customers the convenience of exchanging their old cars for a newer model of their choice, a convenience that comes with an obvious price

Better looking cars, fresher and higher spec variants and the changing transportation needs of the urban middle-class has and will continue to urge them towards seriously considering exchanging their older models for newer and higher utility vehicles.

Not surprisingly, manufacturers and private new/used Maruti car dealers have managed to capitalize on this phenomenon for as long as we can think back and as we see today most single and multi-brand dealerships offer their customers certain remittances in the form of a discount or some loyalty bonuses (for e.g. selling an old Maruti Suzuki model for a newer one) when purchasing a new car from their showrooms in exchange for their older vehicles.

Although expecting a very high resale value for your old car is quite a farfetched possibility at such dealerships, their willingness to capture your older vehicle post standard valuation procedures helps a customer to cut down on his/her overall transaction time of selling his older car and actually getting down to buying a worthy replacement.

Top 10 Car Maintenance Tips

Navnit Maruti

1. Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

2. Check the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear.

3. Check the battery and replace if necessary. Make sure the connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free.

4. Check the brake system annually and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change.

5. Inspect the exhaust system for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangers if there is an unusual noise. Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and must be corrected without delay.

6. Check engine performance to make sure it is delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy and producing the lowest level of emissions.

7. Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and for safety reasons such as defrosting.

8. Inspect the steering and suspension system annually including shock absorbers, struts and chassis parts such as ball joints, tie rod ends and other related components.

9. Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.

10. Check the wipers and lighting so that you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during precipitation.

New Car Pre-Booking Checklist

Navnit Maruti

Congratulations! You have finalized your new car. It’s not been as easy as one would expect, and only you know the sweat and toil you’ve put into researching and test driving all those cars to finally zero-in on this one. But now comes the most critical part of the buying process – actually booking your car. We’ve outlined a few important points for you to keep in mind while booking your car. We suggest that you print out this document and keep it handy throughout the booking process.

Before You Book – Things You Should Know

Finalizing the Variant and Colour

This might sound like it’s a simple matter of the features you desire and your colour preference, but in actual fact it’s a lot more complicated than that. Some colours and variants (or specific combinations of both) could fetch you higher discounts and also impact the waiting period. As a thumb rule, more popular colours and variants fetch lower discounts and command longer wait periods. So unless you’re really sold on the ‘Bossa Nova White’, switching to the ‘Minimal Grey’ might help you save both money and some time.

 

Discounts

The final on-road price of your car can be much lesser depending on the discounts you are able to negotiate with the dealership. Ask for manufacturer’s promotions, dealer offers and free accessories. You could also be eligible for a corporate discount depending on where you work. Most manufacturers offer a loyalty discount if you’re exchanging one of their older cars for a newer one. Even if it is not their own brand, you could qualify for an exchange bonus if you’re exchanging your old car.

Choose your Finance Wisely

If you’re in the market for a car loan, ask the dealers to help you get quotations from several banks. Most dealers have tie-ups with more than one financial partner and they would be happy to oblige. You can also approach other banks yourself and arrange your own loan. You should choose your loan after considering all the factors – down payment, processing fees, monthly payments, rate of interest, tenure, foreclosure charges, etc. The one with the lowest EMI is not always the cheapest loan available.

Understand the Insurance Cover

Insurance is often treated as a necessary evil by car owners, but it is critical to know the cover that you are buying. Read the policy wordings, especially the exclusions, terms and conditions and the locations where cashless facilities are offered. Several policies cover glass, plastic parts and paint jobs only partially (or not at all!) and this could set you back several thousand rupees in the event of a simple bumper repair job. If you are not convinced with the policy that the dealer is offering you, you can approach other insurers and buy your own car insurance policy.

Clarify Everything

It’s always better to clarify everything in writing with the dealership before you sign on the dotted line. This could go a long way in avoiding miscommunication and giving you a sense of comfort through the entire process. Some of the important points to clarify are:

  • What happens if the price of the car changes between booking and delivery?
  • Note the committed delivery date on paper. If you wish to take delivery on a special day, such as your birthday, or a festive occasion, please inform the dealership at the time of booking itself.
  • What are the charges levied if you wish to cancel your booking?
  • What terms apply if the waiting period stretches longer than committed?
  • Please note all the promised accessories and discounts and the final on-road price that you would be liable to pay.

Air-Conditioner Condenser: What You Need to Know

Navnit Maruti

The air-conditioning condenser is a radiator positioned between the car’s grille and the engine-cooling radiator in which the gaseous refrigerant sheds heat and returns to a liquid state. The liquid refrigerant flows to the evaporator inside the dashboard, where it cools the cabin. Is your car not cool enough for you, at least temperature-wise? It might result from a clogged air-conditioning condenser or disabled cooling fan. A leak in the condenser also will result in a loss of refrigerant.

How do I know if my air-conditioning condenser has gone bad?

Well, it’ll be warmer than you want, or your windows will be foggy. If refrigerant leaks, the air conditioner won’t spit out much cold air, if any. Leaks can be located by adding an ultraviolet dye to the refrigerant. Air-conditioning output also can be diminished by crud that builds up on the front of the condenser, and cleaning the condenser may restore some performance.

How often should I replace my air-conditioning condenser?

As with other parts of the air-conditioning system, the condenser generally doesn’t need servicing as long as the system is producing cold air. Some mechanics recommend periodically inspecting the condenser for signs of damage or corrosion and doing an external cleaning or internal flush if needed.

Why do I have to replace my air-conditioning condenser?

Because it’s an integral part of your air-conditioning system, and you won’t be comfortable, or be able to see, if it’s broken. Some condensers can be cleaned externally with a hose, and others can be cleared of sludge with an internal flush, but many mechanics recommend replacing a condenser that is clogged or corroded.

How much should I pay?

The cost of repairs can depend on where you are as much as it does on what you need fixed. To get an estimate for your repair, go to our estimator, plug in your car’s year, make and model information, add your ZIP code, and choose the repair you need. We’ll give you a range for what your repairs should cost in your area.

How Often Should Tyres / Wheels Be Balanced?

Navnit Maruti

Smooth driving is a balancing act that requires getting the wheels and tyres to rotate at high speeds without vibrations. That’s not a slam dunk; a dirty little secret about wheels and tyres is that they usually aren’t perfectly round, even when brand new. What’s more, their weight often isn’t evenly distributed, so they’re heavier in some spots than others.

Either issue can cause annoying vibrations. Out-of-balance tyres can also cause rapid tyre or suspension wear, so it’s not just about ride comfort.

That is why when new tyres are mounted on wheels they’re spin-balanced to detect vibrations. Some vibrations can be eliminated by rotating the tyre on the wheel so the heavy or “high” spot is in a different location that better matches up with the wheel. Small weights are attached to the wheels with adhesives or clips to counteract the heavy spots and provide a smooth ride. Over time, though, the weights can fall off. If that happens to a front wheel, you may feel vibrations through the steering wheel that typically become more pronounced as vehicle speed increases.

Many tyre dealers include free lifetime rotation and balancing with new tyres (something you should ask about before buying). Tyre rotation is when the vehicle’s tyres are removed and reattached at a different position to ensure they wear evenly, which should be done every 5,000 to 7,500 miles on most vehicles, or according to the automaker’s recommendation.

Many consumers neglect the balancing part and have their tyres rotated only periodically. If balancing was included with the tyres, it would be wise to remind the shop to check the balance at the same time. Even if balancing costs extra, it’s a good idea to have it checked at least every two years, or more often in areas where roads are not well-maintained.

Vibrations can also be caused by a bent wheel, a damaged tyre (which won’t be fixed by balancing), worn suspension parts or worn wheel bearings, so balancing the wheels and tyres may not eliminate all vibrations.

Tyres and wheels are balanced before being attached to the vehicle by spinning them on a balancing machine that identifies heavier or stiffer spots that cause vibrations. Some tyre dealers and repair shops use “road force” balancing machines that simulate the weight and forces applied to tyres and wheels during driving conditions. They say this method provides more accurate and detailed readings that allow more precise balancing.

How to Effectively Test Drive a New Car

Navnit Maruti

Short listing Cars for a Test Drive

Before you decide on taking a test drive, based on your budget, finalise the specifications and features you absolutely must have on the car. The feature could be as basic as a power steering to something as non-essential as a Bluetooth sound system. Logon to www.navnitmaruti.com and research the car models and variants that fit these aspects. If you are still confused about which car to buy and will only decide post a test drive then shortlist a maximum of 3 cars as more the number of car you shortlist, the more confused you will be while making the final decision.

Test Drive the Version You Are Considering for Purchase

Yes, it is critical to inform the dealership that you would like to test drive a particular version and not a generic model. When the dealership executive calls you to confirm the test drive, you must insist on knowing the version they are sending. If you are not sure, confirm the following:

Engine: Does the test drive car have the engine shortlisted by you e.g. Petrol or Diesel, 2.4L or 3L?

Gearbox: Does it have the kind of gearbox you are looking for e.g. manual or automatic?

Features: Does it have the features that are going to help you decide e.g. heightadjustable driver seat, lumbar support, power steering etc?

Upholstery: If the car is offered in more than one upholstery options, ask for the car with the upholstery you are interested in e.g. black or beige.Having the exact engine and gearbox is critical. If the dealership doesn’t have the version you wish to test drive, you might want to consider another dealership.

Convenient Time and Place

Test drives normally take about an hour from start to finish, including test driving the car and discussions with dealer executive post test-drive. We strongly recommend that you schedule the test drive at a convenient time and place so that you don’t have to hurry up. The test drive should typically be scheduled on a day you are relatively free and are at leisure.

Things to Take Along

Family / friends – Have family members or friends join you for a test drive. They can give feedback on how the ride feels in the back seat and will give you a proper understanding of how many people you can actually seat comfortably. They will also help in observing things that you might miss out on.

Your favourite music – Take along a CD/ USB drive with your music on it to test the music system of the car.

Six Ways You Could be Killing Your Car

Navnit Maruti

Owning a car can be a dream or a nightmare depending on how well you take care of your vehicle, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

The following are six things that many motorists do that can harm their car and their wallet.

  • Ignoring the check engine light.Ignoring an illuminated check engine light can result in serious engine trouble and costly repairs. At the very least, this warning light could alert you to an engine problem that is negatively impacting fuel economy.
  • Failing to change fluids and filters. Many fluids are required for the operation and protection of vehicle systems and components. Checking fluid levels regularly, along with the filters, helps ensure that your vehicle runs dependably and extends vehicle life.
  • Neglecting your tires. Your vehicle’s tires should be checked frequently for inflation and tread depth. Underinflated tires can wear out more quickly, needing to be replaced sooner, and can negatively impact safety, gas mileage and performance.
  • Not following a service schedule.Because many car parts and components wear out or become damaged over time, vehicles need to be routinely serviced in order to perform optimally. Routine inspections and timely repairs will help keep your car running efficiently and will help you avoid more expensive repairs down the road.
  • Keeping a dirty car. Allowing your car to go too long without a wash leads to buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt, increases the potential for rust from road salt and interferes with proper visibility needed for safe driving.
  • Being a severe driver. Whether it’s stop-and-go traffic, extreme weather, rough roads or heavy loads, it can sometimes be difficult to limit severe driving conditions. However, you can drive smart and improve fuel economy by observing the speed limit; avoiding aggressive driving, including quick starts and stops; not hauling unnecessary items; and keeping your vehicle properly tuned.

“Since auto care isn’t generally a top need for auto proprietors, they won’t not understand they are doing things that antagonistically influence the execution, wellbeing and estimation of their auto,” said Rich White, official chief, Car Care Council. “Routine upkeep can go far toward sparing cash, maintaining a strategic distance from cerebral pains and securing your vehicle venture.”

Break Oil: When to replace it?

12027504_1007935742590667_3729778140554791054_n

Brake oil is used by hydraulic braking systems of automobiles. Read to know the characteristics of brake oil and when to replace it

Automobile braking systems work on hydraulics and a lubricating fluid called brake oil is necessary for them to function. Brake oil over the years has evolved greatly to ensure better operation and reliability of the system. The different types of brake oils according to their application include grades like DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 5 and DOT 5.1. These types of brake oil listed correspond to their boiling points as they work in very high temperature and pressure environments. DOT 3 and DOT 4 brake oils are most commonly used in both India and internationally.

The boiling point of brake oil needs to be high to avoid vapourisation, as vapour is compressible and will hamper the effectiveness of a hydraulic system. Vapour in the hydraulic system will also result in pressure differences which in the case of brake oil can cause problems like juddering. This can also cause uneven pressure differences in the brake system and can lead in rupturing of the brake lines. Over time, due to moisture content in the atmosphere brake oil absorbs moisture. The boiling point of brake oil after absorbing moisture is known as its wet boiling point.

DOT 3, DOT 4 and DOT 5.1 are able to absorb water to an extent (hygroscopic) under normal humidity levels. DOT 5 is silicon based and cannot absorb water (non-hygroscopic). DOT 5 brake oil is not compatible with anti-lock braking systems. Silicone brake oil, which contains additives that prevent the oil from becoming sludgy under low temperatures, is used in very cold climates.

Most modern cars, if not all, come with brake fluid reservoirs that allow one to see through so you can check on the level of brake fluid without physically opening the cap. Usually, the reservoir is located on the engine firewall or towards the back of the engine bay towards the driver’s side. The reservoir is also higher up in the engine bay so that it is easily accessible. Once you locate the reservoir, it is easy to identify certain markings on it to know if you need to fill more brake fluid or if it is at an acceptable level. As the container is in the engine bay and is often exposed to elements like grime, heat and oil, one might need to clean off a little grime on it to ensure correct levels.

Brake oil must be changed every two years as the oil gets saturated with moisture. The moisture content can also corrode seals and metal inside the braking system. Old brake oil is flushed out completely and replaced with new oil. Always remember to bleed the brake system of all air bubbles before using the car. Forgetting to bleed the brake system can lead to catastrophic brake failure and can result in an accident.

Ensure an adequate level of brake oil is refilled according to the marking on the container located in the engine bay. If the level drops, top up with the grade of brake oil recommended by the car manufacturer. Also visit to the authorized workshop for checking & functioning of brake system as there may be chances of leakage in the hydraulic system. Always remember to thoroughly clean the rim of the container and the cap before putting it back on to ensure no stray particles enter the reservoir. Do not use brake oil from an opened bottle as it will have absorbed moisture from the atmosphere. Wash off any brake oil residue that might have spilled in the engine bay while refilling as it can corrode the paint.

Lights Out? Check Vehicle Lighting

Navnit Motors Pvt.Ltd

Fall is here and its arrival means fewer hours of daylight and upcoming holiday travel. Before hitting the road, it is a wise idea to make sure your vehicle’s lights are in proper working order, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

“Lights play a critical role in safe driving, as the chance of an accident increases if you can’t see or be seen,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “From the driver’s seat you may not notice a light that isn’t working, so inspect all of your car’s lights and replace those that are out.”

Lights are normal wear items that require periodic inspection and replacement. The vehicle lighting system provides nighttime visibility; signals and alerts other drivers; and supplies light for viewing instruments and the vehicle’s interior. In addition to replacing dimming, rapidly blinking and non-functioning lights, the following tips can help keep you safe :

  • Keep headlights, tail lights and signal lights clean. External dirt and debris can dim operational lights from being seen by others.
  • Make sure that your headlights are properly aimed. Misaimed headlights blind other drivers and reduce your ability to see the road.
  • If there is any doubt on whether or not your headlights should be on, turn them on. Lights not only help you see better in early twilight, they also make it easier for other drivers to see you.
  • Don’t overdrive your headlights; you should be able to stop inside the illuminated area, otherwise you are creating a blind crash area in front of your vehicle.

“Some states have laws that require the headlights to be on with the wipers,” said White. “Keeping your vehicle’s lights properly cared for and replacing wiper blades periodically will help ensure a safer ride, keeping the road ahead well-lit and giving you a clear view.”

Maruti Suzuki Car service Center in Thane, Mumbai will also perform overall health checks on your vehicle and if there is other work that needs attention or other parts that need changing they will communicate this with you in advance to make sure you are aware of what additional work is required and whether any further costs may be incurred.
