I have taken my Maruti Car from Varun Motors in Year 2008 and started getting start up problems few days back. (Model-Maruti Swift-VXI). I had sent the car to Varun Motors, Begumpet for repairs and was informed that the Battery has defects and needs to be replaced. The Warranty on the Original Battery (Amaron Battery) is only for a period of 1 year and hence I need to pay for the repairs. It is shocking that the Maruti Car Vendors are using INFERIOR BATTERIES in the Original car, as Amaron provide more 3-5 years warranty on replacement batteries.
My car has only run for about 15000 KM in last 2 years and I am very disappointed that a Branded Car Company like Maruti is using Inferior products in the Original Car. All new Batteries today come with 3 to 5 years warranty.
Varun Motors has replaced the Defective Battery in the car and I have been charged an amount of Rs 3670/- for the same. I feel that I have been short changed on this both by Maruti as well as by Amaron, as they are equally to blame for providing substandard components to their trustworthy customers. I will think twice about buying my next car from Maruti.
