Just saw your thread and thought of adding my 2 paise
The Santro AT is technically a superior car to the Wagon R. The 4 speed tranny is far modern than the 3 speed unit of the Wagon R I dont know about Bangalore but as I mentioned in another thread, No one at the Maruti service stations know anything about ATs and you get a panicked look the moment you say there is an issue with the AT car.
I owned a Zen AT before ... It used to give me 12 kpl without the AC and between 9-10 with the AC . I dont recommend a Maruti AT to anyone now.
I bought an OHC AT a month ago and shes doing just fine. May you look at something similar or a used NHC CVT. And Honda ATs are not bad on FE either

Semi automatic Clutch
Remember reading an ad in OD or some other auto mag (recent issue) about a Semi automatic clutch system installed by A manufacturer in Pune... He says you can re-install the system onto your next car in case you need to change your car... He had tie-ups with people in most cities but not in hyderbad so havent checked any of the claims or the product, why dont you give it a dekho... moreover our gurus here would definitely have known of this product and shall throw more light on to this I hope...
Seating posture is also something that leads to problems. The following link might be helpful I hope http://www.motiontrends.com/2006csm/..._driving.shtml

Re: Santro Automatic to buy or not to buy?
Do you know the contact number of this guy who was retailing this Auto Clutch? I am thinking of trying it on my dad's Alto.

I had it for around 3 years when I decided to remove it.
