Congrats for buying the ICONIC MARUTI SUZUKI 800.This is the car which has taught the India how to drive,even me too.
The maintainance free and city friendly nature of the car is second to none.In my views,this car is as iconic as a Porsche 911 or VW Beetle.Why?Because one has defined the sports cars and one has defined the car.Same way Maruti 800 has defined what a car is to INDIA.
Somewhere I am also a member of the M800 club, Sorry for no pictures.

Congrats Mastersquall on your car.
If you are not confident above 60kmph may be due to the tyre condition.
Check the alignment and think weights need to be added in case of wobbling.
How are the tyres?
JK tyres tend to brittle after few years of usage.
My zen had them , now changed to Michelins.

actually first i didn't knew about alignment problem because bad road infront of showroom so later i saw its pulling too much toward right so i got alignment checked but now its pulling little bit toward left but but not tat much
They gave me new tire atleast seeing them they can easily go till 50k KM
i think i might have to get weight stuff to see if it fix its wobbling issue

@Mod Please add these picture in first post also add this information
I forgot to tell you guys got new Tire all 5set and New battery from maruti [evil]

Enjoyed reading the conversation. Also, those pictures bought the good old memories back and I like the seat covers on your car.

Which tyres MS?

Looks like 800 is equipped with gear lock, Have you changed those wipers, i could see a mark on windshield.
There are some products of 3M if you want those dashboard shining.

Overall you got a good deal, after you said you got all new tyres.

tire was MRF and there trend was like this
MRF Tyres

they changed the wiper them self

about windshield there are some scratch mark which i didn't see while TD it in afternoon only came to know about it in evening .
I think buffing should solve this scratch problem ?

Wow buddy i liked your conversation with the manager! If you had settled for their price , what profit they would have enjoyed for the car!


The car looks to be well maintained , enjoy the ride and congratulations!


For the wobbling and pulling issue get wheel balancing and alignment done from a reputed tyre shop.

Hi Masteraquall,

Really impressed with your post...
I also need to buy my first car, so just planning to buy a second hand car so that me and family can learn driving as well without the worries of dents on new car.

I am planning to buy an old car from Maruti True Value, New Delhi. But on some other forums/posts/websites many peoples has shared there negative experiences as well which they had with Maruti True Value. So what you suggest to me. Should I go ahead with Maruti True Value.

If yes which dealer of Maruti True Value should I prefer to deal with?

From which dealer of Maruti True Value you bought your car?
(Because I feel that not all dealers have same ethical policy of dealing)

Thanks,
Raj Kumar Arora
