Default Ignis 2017 English Manual

Hi, All

I'm currentlybuying a shiny new fully-loaded Ignis for 'Er Indoors but I have a minor glitch: we live in Bulgaria and Suzuki here are "unable" to provide an owner's manual in English. Being Bulgarian, my wife has no problem with that but sadly I do - I speak the language fairly well but technical terms etc are a bit of a struggle, if I'm honest.

Does anyone know where/if I can download an English-language version of the manual?

TIA.

Jim

Hi Jim,
Having just purchased our new Ignis in the U.K. we obviously received our manual in English, along with a disc which provides instructions to operate our Pioneer Audio/Nav system.
I have inquired from Suzuki UK re my obtaining a download copy of the cars manual but apparently this has not been made available yet. However I have been able to download from Pioneer an online version of their manual for my Audio/Nav system.
Cheers

Thanks for the reply. How are you finding the Ignis? My wife is moving from the Panda 4x4 to an Ignis 4x4 and I was wondering if there are any glitches we should be looking out for...

Hi Jim, we are very much enjoying the Ignis having changed it from a Hyundai i20 1.0l 120ps model purchased new just 9 months ago. We like it's ease of parking due to short length and whilst it is ideal for City driving it is at home at motorway speed to. Very roomy inside and easy access to higher seats, useful when your north of 70 as I am. We love the flexible boot size, as large as the Hyundai at its max, but more room in the back for grandkids when rear seat is fully back. Car is proving very economical, now up to 52mpg over its 1st 600 miles. Still having to adjust to a non turbo engine, but having completed the run in period today discovered the car loves to rev so will now be able to exploit that.
Re 4x4 function weather has been too moderate to challenge its abilities but it grips very well on bends. We have previously tested a Panda 4x4 but prefer the Ignis, I am looking forward to hearing your own comparison experience. One moan is the operation manual as it covers so many model variations and features not available on U.K. Models, so after 1st 15 days still working my way through both car and Audio/Nav functionality. Please ask if you want any further feedback on any aspects of our car experience but in summary so far we absolutely love it.
Cheers
St

Thanks again, ST. To be honest, I don't know if our spec here is different to that in the UK, apart from the LHD bit, of course...

"Ignis Day" will be tomorrow or Saturday, depending on when the dealer manages to get the insurance, registration etc set up for us. As you might imagine, it's rather different here, for a start it's the car which is insured, not the driver; that's handy, as basically anyone can then drive it, with the owner's authority. However "Kasko" (aka fully-comp insurance) involves photos being taken of the car and engine, and retaken every year when it's renewed, so no jiggery-pokery!

We'll probably have an LPG conversion done, once the warranty is over, as, like in the UK, it's a lot cheaper to drive on gas. Most of my wife's driving is in the city - basically to and from work, but we live in a suburb on the slopes of Mount Vitosha, which overlooks Sofia, and it can get a bit hairy in the winter; we were down to -30 up here a few weeks ago and about 2 metres of snow, but up to +8 or so today. In the summer it can hit the high 30s (and over) but luckily not up here, as we're usually around 6 or 8 degrees cooler than the city (and without the pollution from old diesel engines and winter wood/coal burning heating).

Not sure what happened to my previous reply(ies) from a couple of days ago but the plot thickens somewhat.

Having had a chance to go through the documents that came with the car, it transpires that we don't even have a Bulgarian owner's manual, despite the dealer assuring my wife that one was in the bundle of bumf. Just to even things out, the Pioneer 9880BT satnav-cum-reversing camera-cum infotainment centre has the satnav part programmed in Greek! This gives the surreal situation of having addresses in Bulgarian (ie Cyrillic) but the satnav menus and information in Greek (which fortunately I do speak and read fluently) and spoken directions in English (after I changed the directions "voice"). I did set the System Language to English but that doesn't change the satnav setting. It appears that it isn't possible to change the satnav language after it's been initially set up, although why some Suzuki bod in Bulgaria would set it to Greek beats me!

I believe that I'll need to do a normal/factory reset to get the satnav into English, as that's part of the initial satnav set-up, but I'm wary of finding that I've lost all the maps etc if I just charge in blindly.....can anyone shed any light on this for me, please?

The dealer has been very apologetic about the missing manual and promises to supply one this week. Mind you. we're also waiting on a set of locking wheel nuts and a rubber mat for the boot (or "trunk" if you're a "Colonial" ) Apparently there are no wind deflectors made yet for the new Ignis, not even from those Polish guys who seem to do them for everything with wheels - no doubt they'll eventually get round to it.

Bulgarians are a pretty suspicious lot - unsurprisingly given their fairly recent history - and my wife isn't 100% convinced that she really has got an alarm or that it's a 4x4! To be fair, I haven't yet managed to rock the vehicle hard enough to set the alarm off and without a manual it's hard to convince her about the 4x4 aspect...
