Update as on March 16

Almost negligible running . Hardly clocking 1000 to 1500 kms annually.

Radiator and power windows troubles randomly.

No major expenses other than regular service. Will complete 16 years this May 16

Update @ 18 year & 109000 kms

Drove about 500 kms this vacation in Kerala. As usual trouble free running. Hardly runs about 1000 kms a year. Still bring a smile to my face , every time i drive this machine , especially MC road....(Adoor - TVM) is simply awesome.

Changed the shoes as it was more than 7 years old. Bought 2 shoes Bridgestone B290 - 175/70 R13. Costed 4400 per tyre. The other 2 are still good, will change it next time.

10k Insurance renewal is pinching even with @ 65% NCB and IDV value of 70K . Third party cover is now very expensive.

I think you are being taken for a ride. I renewed the insurance for my 12YO Baleno recently. No NCB and I paid a shade over 9k with 1.8L IDV. The carrier is either national or New India insurance. The basic (i.e. TP) is around 3.5-4k iirc.

Cheers!

I was under the same impression. TP from 1st april is now for 1500cc and above is 8500/- . Have you renewed after April 2017 ?

The other 2 tyres are 5.5 year old.

Gosh! That a big jump! I stand corrected. I renewed the insurance in mid March.

Cheers!
