2002 Maruti Zen LX
- bought in mid 2005 for 2.3L at 28500kms (2.5L if you consider the 20K I paid as road-tax when I moved it to Hyderabad
- sold it for 1.83L at 45000kms 2 years later in mid 2007
- Would I buy it again? No - models too old to be considered.


Dec 2006 Maruti WagonR VXi
- bought it in Jun 2007 for 3.22L from Maruti True Value (6 month old, 10500kms)
- still have it. Now at 63300kms.
- Would I buy it again - Yes, if I were looking for a small small car.

Model, Variant & Color : Fiat Palio 1.6 GTX, Midnight Black, Bangalore
First ownership Date : May 2002
Second ownership Date, Mileage, Price : Sold in September 2005 for Rs. 2.62 lakhs after covering 12000km as I would be abroad for a year and there was no place to store it
Brief Quantitative and qualitative comment: It was the wrong car for me at the time (I was learning to drive. I had had a license for 10 years before buying the car but very little experience). While all the petrol heads swear buy the car, as a newbie, I came across the following issues
* hydraulic power steering becomes very light at high speed reducing confidence
* torque at low RPM is inadequate for driving in the city
* large turning radius, width not good for navigating tiny streets (I was staying in Ejipura, Bangalore which is a hell hole of labyrinthine, tiny streets)
* low seating/large glass area or something else made my wife very nauseous during drives in bumper-to-bumper traffic. I thought it was my jerky driving, but she has no issues in my current car which is a Santro.
* very low mileage which made me take out the car less and less

Things I liked
* built like a tank
* the power once you cross 2500 RPM
* spacious

I wouldn't buy it or a petrol hot hatch again.

Bought Oct 2005 Santro ELX XP in Bangalore
Purchased : February 2007
Price bought: 3.2 lakhs (Odometer reading : 5300 km)
Comments: Fantastic city car. Good on the highway as well. I did a 2700 km (Mumbai-Ahmedabad-Udaipur-Jodhpur-Sam-Jaisalmer-Jodhpur-Mt-Abu-Baroda-Mumbai) with no issues at all and with speeds frequently at or above 120kph. Mileage in the city could be better. On short commutes to office of about 5km in bumper to bumper traffic, I get 10-11 kpl only.
