hi all my TAI
Family members. Finally i got some time to share my ownership review
which is about my darling Maruti Suzuki Alto Lx 2007.
I am from Punjab ,belongs to small middle class family.I love to drive. from last couple of months me and my family members were planning to purchase a car. my budget was only up to 2 lak . So decided to go with a pre owened car. I started search for cars on internet for people reviews. Then my search ends up with the choice of two brands Maruti and TATA. I was looking for the car with good mileage, less maintenance cost and build quality. So I decided to get Maruti Alto. My search ended in may 2013. I got my white color Alto lx with 32000 km on odo.I am very happy.I have got Pioneer cd system and speakers pre installed, sounds really good.
I drive the car 1500 kms and feel proud to be owner of Alto. I did not face any probem, Car is running very smoothly. This is my first car and I am enjoying very much. I have changed the seat covers with new fabric seat covers cost 1800, steering wheel cover cost 150, door wisers cost 450 , antenna cost 150, foot mat cost 1100.
Let’s talk about my experience driving this car. I have purchased this car from Ludhiana,
About 100 kms away from my home. Me and my close friend went to bring the car, He checked the car because he has a good knowledge about cars. Finally we paid the money and took the papers after a long bargaining. I had no experience driving on highways at that time. My friend had to drive, but I shocked to know that I will have to drive the car because my friend was going because his senior officer called him back urgently. He is serving in Punjab Armed Police. After a long conversation I decided to drive the car to home. I took a long breath and start my journey alone.i did not know any thing about car accept gear shifting and steering. Messed up with head lights beam all the way to my home. I was not able to find out how to change the beam to high. I drove the car all the way at 50-60 kmph. Thank God I reached home in one piece. Then after 2-3 more trips
I became a professional driver. I have driven approx 1500 kms till now.
Talking about the performance , I experienced very smooth driving . car is noise free, handling is very good , no vibration nothing at all even on high speed, interior is good seats are comfortable, AC is very very effective. Music system is best . It has PIONEER
Music system and speakers which has great sound quality. I have a KENWOOD head unit also which I got from another car, I’ll test it soon.
I feel the car is pulling a little bit to left side, thought the reason is the slope of the road.
Really want to check the alignment later. Did not have any other issue yet.
overall very good car ,with very good FE, good looking, comfrtable and smooth. i love my alto vry much, it looks so cute.
I don’t have much knowledge about cars, hope TAI
members will help me to learn more.
I have some doubts and questions in my mind, I’ll ask later.
So this is my short story about my ownership, hope you will like it.
Big thanks to give me a chance to become a part of great TAI
