The forum, presided over by C K Chaturvedi, relying upon the documents and other material placed before it said, "It is established that the car could not be repaired despite efforts made by opposite party (Maruti) and defects appeared again and again, leading to total loss of satisfaction to the purchaser.

 
"We are of the view that the car has some manufacturing defect in its gear system or in its engine operation. 
 
The forum said that it has been now 7 years since the car was bought, it will be difficult to replace the car and request the company to pay the compensation of Rs 3.5 lakh to Veena Amlani.
