Esteem VX - 1999, 60500 Kms report
Presenting the 60500 Kms ownership report of my Esteem VX - 1999 make.
This is a pre-owned car and we purchased it from Naidu Motors, S. R Nagar in April 2004 for Rs 2.5 lakhs.
The following is a summary of expenses incurred on this car till date:
Date: 27th June 2005/Varun Motors Balanagar
Expense (Rs) : 4144/- (Clutch Cover Plate Set - 1700, Bearing - 843)
Comments: Car broke down near Dhola-Ri-Dhani on the way to Basar - had to get it towed to Balanagar.
Date: 7th August 2006/Mithra, RTC Cross Roads
Expenses (Rs): 2276 (Spark Plug - 176; Maruti Genuine Oil Rs 420) - General Servicing
Date: 18th September 2006/Mithra, RTC Cross Roads
Expenses(Rs): 4068 (Wiper Motor & Bracket - 1531 & Switch Assembly Combo - Rs 1461)
Comments - Wiper problem - Intermittent wipe not working when we took delivery of the vehicle.
This one is the big daddy of them all:
Date: 13th February 2007/ Mithra RTC Cross Roads
Expenses: Rs 18328/- (Rear Wheel Hub Assembly - 4352, Regulator Assembly - 1673, Front Door Left & Right Door Glass Runners ( RS 783 each, Rear Door Runner - RS 559, Paid Service - Rs 659)
Date: 10th October 2007/Mithra RTC Cross Roads
Expenses: Rs 3527 (General Servicing)
Comments: A/C Compressor conks off. Service Technician tells he is not at fault - I cannot argue as the car itself is close to 9 Years old.
Decided not to take the car again to Mithra. The local Maruti technician seems to be doing a better job.
2 Weeks Back: Spent Rs 11,700 for New Subros Compressor & Allied parts + Labour.
Car seems running fine now. Odd squeaks from the front left wheel, when loaded to capacity. Fuel economy of 13 Kmpl in city driving conditions.
Usage: Mostly in the weekends for 100 to 150 Kms round trips around Hyderabad. The car has also been to Srisailam, Beechupally & Basar.
Speed: Max 125 Kmph after which the steering wheel starts vibrating.
I need to change the tyres and check again.
Seating: Low seating position is a pain - Can seat 4 comfortably , 5 is a squeeze.
Driveability - Easy to maneouvre in the chaotic Hyderabad city traffic - Responsive steering.
