I have a 6 year old SX4 which has clocked almost 100k kms, and a 2year Skoda Laura which has just clocked 40k. We havent had any issues our SX4 except 6 times the horns going kaput and stalling quite a few times over the last year(a new battery solved the problem). The car has gone for 2 servicing over the last one and a half year costing us 10k each time(isnt it too frequent and too costly?
). Anyways, the car's been giving a really poor mileage of 9-11 in city whereas my Laura gives 16-18. Its interiors and exteriors have a lot of dents scratches(i seriously mean a lot) thanks to our driver. Reason for the new ca
For the past two years the Laura has been our workhorse. My college and my dad's office timings were similar, so i would leave with my dad and our driver would first drop my dad at his office and then to drop me at my college. He would wait there with the car till 5:30pm and then pickup dad from his office on the way home. The SX4 would stay at home in case mom needed a vehical. All was going well, but my college has changed the timings and from now on i will have to leave for college an hour and half early. My college is 18kms one way and obviously taking the SX4 would be the obvious idea(Laura stays back to drop dad), but the SX4 drinks too much petrol! It would cost me 240 buck daily! Imagine 6 days a week!
So we finally decided to sell off our loyal SX4(makes me cry whenever i think about it )
We did try some online car valuing websites most of them said with the amount of cosmetic damage and the no. of kilometers on the odo I wouldnt get more than 3.5lakhs. Therefore we decided to add 1lakh and buy a second hatch.
1. Diesel obviously!
2. Low kilometers on the odo
3. Not more than 3 years old
4. Must have Airbags and ABS
please suggest me! im travelling with my SX4 which is way too costly!
Thanks for reading such a long post and bearing it!
