Absolutely, this is and will remain my spare tyre. The rim is fine, but the tyre does have a hairline crack visible. With an air pump in my boot, I hope I never have to use spare unless absolutely necessary like in this incident.

The above points look contradictory, but since you have the service documents it should be fine,

Oh Yes, I got your PM, Lalit, but I missed this point which eagle-eye Eddy noticed. Why would anyone change tyres at 25 k (unless he got sick of the stupid GPS2 and upsized!)? Is the tyre size 165/80/R13 or is it upgraded.

If you've bought it, keep a really close eye on tyre wear and suspension.

@ lalitk25: The resale price is worrying me.

@ amarprusty: I am about to renew insurance for my 2006 1.6 Sport. Can you help me with the contacts @ Reliance.

Cheers

Indeed very low resale price for a capable car

Negotiate hard with all insurance players,go with lowest premium and highest IDV value.

Thanks to my part time business have good negotiation skills unlike pure job folks

I am back from delhi to chd trip in the car.
And it is as good as new.
It gave me an average of 22+ on highway and every part of car is working fine, no rattle only engine noise high...
Regarding tyres they were changed because it is a lease vehicle and maintainance is very specific and GPS2 are crap tyres they wear out pretty fast and I have checked the manuf date on tyres as well it is mid 2009, But seems tyre wera out is an issue with palio other please comment......
Color is black and scratch less and have every single document in hand.

Will post some pics later....

Thanks for the offer but I think I would not sell it and would keep it for quite a long time, because this engine is really good and would easily last 2L km with good maintainance. I am not sure about new buy for this vehicle but good maintained second hand is a steal......

I had a small clarification:
Is the Palio Stile Multijet still sold in Metros, within the new emission norms?

Cheers

No It is not available in metros since 1st april this year.
All diesel and petrol palio are not available in metros because of emission standards there was a list of 13 cars which are now not selling in metros.
