Part 4 For last 12 Months:
My small angel is cool in city drive, and especially we feel so at the time of parking and traffic. I went for 10 days driving class to fresh up my skills and got ready to take my cockpit.
For the initial 3 – 4 months she was at my home and it was not that hectic to drive through nearby places. By mid of May 2010 I bought her to Trivandrum.
It was very difficult to drive in heavy traffic and in the worse roads for 2 weeks and slowly I adapted the way of city drive. Mileage:
For my initial 6 months, I got only 16kmpl in hometown drive with AC on all the time. After the third service I am getting 18Kmpl and yet to figure out how much on highway drives.
I guess am not getting more than 19kmpl at any time. Do I need to go for a check? Accessories till date:

One day with 2 minor hits and I major hit on my Alty
One Monday I was driving back from home town and cruising at a speed of 80Km, just after a turn a dog jumped in front from nowhere and hit on the front left corner..Bowwww. Left fog lamp broken into pieces.
After reaching Trivandrum, deviated to pettah - kumarapuram road and after passing kannanmoola a bullet hit from back bust my number plate.
Thank god only number plate. I never knew that a big one was on the way. After some blah blah started to home with a heavy mind.
Reaching Kumarapuram junction, very careful, slow down to take left, put the indicator - Trashhhhh
I don’t understand what happen. Shocked for few moments, I feel like freezing.
Look to front and see my angel kissed another angel, but I am sure that it is not my fault, Then how?
Turned back to see, if any culprit over there and yes..#$%#
A deep kiss from a goods carrier rickshaw. I lost my cool and jumped out with all temper. Raised to him like anything and he was willing to do anything. His agreeable way of talk and approach made me to calm down.
The first alto belongs to an Eng. College Principal, she also was little frightened. As I kept my distance that hit was minor.
After having a detailed talk, she went off. I went to Indus along with him and after the preliminary analysis they figured the expense as 6500/-.
The damages were - dent on luggage door and bumper broken from the locks.
I agreed to make the insurance claim and that guy was ready to pay the rest. After 5 days I got my car ready. Opinion
A compact family car that does superb in city and highways too!!!! You will never regret of this small one unless the bigger ones treat you like bugs, if you horn behind or trying to overtake.
With the rising fuel price Alto will do good with your budget in daily use and it himself will not let you down and will make sure that you get home.
As it’s my first car and my care and love make me feel, it’s an extended part of me. I wish my angel has to be a part of family for many more years.
