    Petrol cars are always reliable for long term use. If you want to keep the car for more than 4-5 years, then go for petrol. Otherwise go for a diesel model if you want more mileage and your daily commute is more than 40 kms per day. As the price of petrol and diesel is almost same fuel costs will be almost same on your pocket. But if mileage is taken into account, Diesel vehicles give 4-5 kms more mileage than a petrol car. However, diesel cars do have a tendency of showing problems after 2-3 years of use. The problems can vary from mechanical to electronics failure. My neighbor has a Farm house in outskirts of the city and her daily commute is more than 60kms per day. So, she always opts for a diesel car. She owns a Toyota Innova and the car shows all sorts of troubles every now and then. For first two years of her drive the car was great. But then it showed all sorts of trouble. My bother is that she always borrows my swift car as she finds power steering drive more easy when her car is under repair. And i am left with no option rather than to drive my Maruti 800 to office.
