Man, thats some review. One of the first over 1L km review on tbhp and from the sound of it the car has got lots more to go. One of my friends also owns the same car bought it in 2004 for about 8L on road and he too says the same, that he loves the car though his driving is way too lesser than yours.

Hmmm..you have been averaging about 18K each year and thats a lot for a petrol car. I am sure you already spent half the cost of car on fuel

Nothing new in big city. I have too completed 32K in just two years in my Baleno.

Have been regulary using colin but the effect does not seem to last more than a day, plus the wipers are barely 2 mths old so dont think its a problem with them. will try using another detergent and get back with the results

Try using some hair shampoo, dilute it in a bottle of water and clean the windshield from the inside and outside. This solved my issue atleast, but I need to do this once a month.

Please post some pics of interiors.

Is the seating capacity same as Baleno? what's the boot space?

These models are very impressive. My next car could be a second hand station wagon type

Toothpaste does not work on Baleno Windshield?


Fantastic report.

Nice to see a car runnin flawless for 1 lakh KM and 6 years.

Now I am encouraged to keep my NHC forever. I love the car, it's the dealers who spoil the fun in India...

Hope to read 1 millon km report from you on this car.

All the best.
