I'll put up pictures of the said car soon...its not that photogenic because its quite bruised considering its my daily drive, and its driven through the rowdiest and lawless traffic that inhabit parts of old delhi, the car has presently 76000kms on the odo, i haven't made many mods to it except for the ICE, and the exteriors and the interiors are stock, this was the power steering version thats still being sold today, the car has weathered the test of time well, and is still in good condition as far as the engine is concerned, the a/c is showing its age as it was never serviced, tyres are bridgestone s322 which lasted the better part of 70,000kms(says a lot about its driver no? ), it hasn't asked for much this car..the clutch was overhauled at 67000kms, which is quite a lot since it goes through 8kms of stop start traffic everyday, After i'd purchased this car, i'd installed an aftermarket power windows/central locking kit from autocop which is still working fine, its been returning an average of about 11km/l(avg speed 20kmph) with the aircon doing duty full time which is a lil less according to me. A few of the niggles encountered: When i purchased this vehicle, within the first three thousand kilometers, the brakes developed a judder, and i was told by the service people that the brake discs had warped..apparently this was a manufacturing fault, and they gave me reground discs from somebody elses vehicle, however the problem wasn't solved and this excercise was repeated a few more times until i ended up with the right set..the brake pads lasted me 77000kms..just changed them last weekend Sometimes the battery would just run flat, this happened to me quite a few times and i had to get a jump from some passers by, this problem could not be traced, i got the started motor serviced(bushes changed), i also got the battery changed which did not help either..then i landed upon the idea that it could be the central locking leaking current when it was standing in the parking the whole day, i serviced the solenoids of the same by taking them out and readjusting them, and since then, the problem seems to have disappeared. Till about 65k kms, i took it to the serviced station to get it serviced @deep hyundai peeragarhi, but the DIY man in me decided to change the oil/oil filter one sunday, and when i saw the amount of oil that i drained was filled with gunk and also less in quanitiy, i was convinced the station did not change it the last time around, that time i just filled the oil and changed the oil filter, at 75k, the oil came out full measure, much cleaner, and before i put in new oil/oil filter i flushed the engine with diesel..put in new NGK spark plugs, and a new air filter as well. The car also had idling problem once a month when it was warm. The problem was traced to the IACV(Idle air control valve) which nobody thought of touching(at the service station), so i opened it and cleaned it with the help of a carb cleaner, and poof, the car was back to its young self. Considering how much this car was worth, its been a pleasant going, although i can't say it will continue much longer as i am going to dispose of it soon(probably). Its been a reliable companion for most of the time..and has asked very little attention of me. Never asked for more than the regular oil change/tune up and the one in a blue moon battery change. Certain parts of this vehicle are not available locally i.e clutch cable and the like, which is a bit irritating because having owned maruti's i like the idea of anywhere available spares. But neverthless..smooth sailing.
