Beware I am going to reveal a serious fault in Wagon R Pakistan assembled model:
Recently I was driving my car slowly in about 8 to 10 inch of water near Askari 11 Lahore. A 4-wheeler Toyota crossed my car and a splash of water rose to my car bonnet level. My car stopped, I towed it to a dry place. Found out that my car air cleaner was wet, I dried it but the car refused to start. We got the car mechanic, he diagnosed that the water went in to the engine, Therefore he changed the oil, oil filter and air filter. Now the engine started but gave a strange sound, We stopped the engine and towed the car to the Suzuki authorized dealer as this was in warranty, but they refused to do the job because "water damage" is not covered under warranty. Their diagnose was that one of the connecting ROD is damaged.
In short we brought the engine down and took out the faulty ROD. Part was not available in the market so we went to Bilal Gunj and to our surprise the person who deals in Wagon R parts told us that he has receiving customers of Pakistan model Wagon R almost weekly with water damaged engine parts, especially the connecting ROD.
So please be careful in driving your Wagon R in monsoon, which is right at the corner. If possible we should create a list of cars damaged in this way, so that we can pressurize PAK Suzuki to do some thing about it on a design level and compensate the people effected, as this is a country where we get quite a lot rainfall.
My car mileage was only 4000 KM.
