Please stay miles away from the Kwid

I purchased the Kwid. Unfortunately, it is my biggest regret. I got the delivery of the car in March 2016. After doing 350 Kms on the odometer, there was a squeaky noise from the brakes. The brakes were scrubbed and put back and within 10 Kms from the workshop, the problem emerged again. The pick up was a pain in traffic as there was a sudden loss of power. A few weeks later I realized there is an underbody sound which was like the sound of a broken suspension arm. Later this was fixed at the workshop. The horn also needed a replacement. The mileage was the last straw to breaks the camel's back, company claimed 25kmpl. However, I could never get anything better than 15-16kmpl in the city. I had taken the car four times to the workshop before the first service for the brake issue. During the first service they replaced the disc and the pads, however after a few kilometers, the problem emerged yet again. I took the time to study complaints on the Kwid on various forums and realized that i am not the only one complaining. So finally in June 2016 (3 months since I purchased the car) and doing 5500kms on the odometer, I sold off my car. Although I have bought an i20 now, for those who have a small budget my sincere advice is to go for a tried and tested car like the Alto, Alto 800. I owned an Alto 800 as well, and comparatively, it may not appeal to you because of its looks and interiors which are basic but the car will never give you a hard time making you run to the workshop now and then. The Kwid is a nice looking car, but a very pathetic product from a world-class manufacturer,Renault.

    Yes.. what is said is truth.. I HV gone thru the same experience.. there's lots to it in my case.. they say the look is deceptive . That is what is exactly in this case.. I Have crossed 8000km.. but there is no end.. it's really a pain.
