[Resolved]  maruti zen estilo — oil sump damage,engine seized, no warranty for engine nor insurance claims

i have maruti zen estillo, bought on nov 2009. just before 3 months and while driving, the oil sump got hit on a speed braker, and which got leaked,the oil leaked for few days , as i had it parked for a week.while driving after a week, i saw the oil leakage indicator on dashboard. so i was taking it to service station, while on the way, the car stopped. it was doved to the serivce station, and the mechanics there told, the engine would have got seized,due to no oil in the oil sump. they said i can only claim for the oil sump, as it was damaged in accident,which would cost only rs 1300. but i have to pay for the engine damages, nearly 40thousand as the engine was damaged.
why they dont have any oil sump guard, which is just few 6 to 8 inches above the ground level,and why they dont give warranty to the engine or why i cant claim for the engine thought insurance.

I am owning a maruti estilo VXi from september 2007. Earlier I was having maruti 800 and driving the same by me for about Nine years without any problem. Now it is observed that after running about 9000KM in three years ( Estilo VXI) and own drive the cluct plate as failed on my picnic trip and has to face so much difficulty in an distant place away from home.

I was forced to spend about Rs. 2000/- to tow the car to the maruti work shop and paid about 5000 for repair of the same.

Now maruti dealer say my driving is not good so the clutch plate failed. Do him mean to say Maruti 800 when I drove for nine years and about 30000KM have faced no problem and Estilo failed due to my drive. Instead o[censored]nderstanding the vehicle deficiency and repair it free the Maruti/their dealers should not treat the owners are as fools to believe what they say to their benefit.

Anyway I am planning to sell my Estilo due to the trouble given for me the first time in my life, and go for a new vehicle anuy brand other than maruti.
