Recently, few weeks back, I sold my 'Totally Stock' Ritz VDi(pre-owned) because of the problems it was giving. Being a used car, I never expected it to be totally reliable, but the expenses went higher and higher each day. To name a few, first day, the wipers were not working, next day the horn, next day the headlight and finally on the day we sold it, the car wasn't starting and AC wasn't working! Hell!
Then also, with 77k kms on the odometer, it fetched us a nice Rs.290000!
Till then, I was using the Alto and my brother was using the Ritz. Now since he cannot manage to travel with his office friend all the time, he made a requiest to Dad for a new car. Answer was 'NO'!
After eating brains of mom-dad, we finally arrived at a conclusion that brother will get a used car till november 2012!
Since brother loves the way a modified car looks (like mine!
), he also made his mind to get a 'MODIFIED' car!
My office is far away than brother's office, so, there's a possiblity that the car will become MINE and brother will use the Alto and get a bike (220/R15) in 2013! Brother is okay with this, so I am 100% sure that I will get this car!
Here are more details:
CAR: Used and Modified
BUDGET: <4-4.5 Lacs (Max. 5L)
FEATURES: I've already mentioned 'MODIFIED'
SEATING CAPACITY: Just space for me and woofers is more than enough!
PREFFERED BRAND: Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, Tata.
FUEL: Diesel! (Monthly running = 1200 kms approx)
So, please suggest me the best from the available options.
And yes, it would be better if we purchase the car in November (near Diwali).
Waiting for inputs.
