Actually the car was bought used, It's a 2007 model with the f10d engine.I am about 6ft in height and the tallboy design helps with the ingress and egress.The car was bought mainly to learn driving in it.And it actually serves quite well as a city car, The compact dimensions mean that its quite easy to park in tight parking spots.Highway stability is decent upto 90 km/hr but at around 100 km/hr, The vehicle starts to feel unstable.The engine has great low end torque thereby making it easy to start in inclines, And it revs over 6200 rpm and the engine is quite l-o-u-d at that level.The gearbox has some synchro issues especially with the first gear so you actually have to double clutch to first (only when vehicle is moving)to make the gear lever move easily.Coming to interior, The plastic quality isn't that great and as such the car rattles quite a lot.Rear seat is pretty much unusable for me but i can manage a bit because of the massive headroom on offer.Front seats are good for the most part except on long drives, Where i get lower back pain.The exterior metal panels feel flimsy but are still better when compared to the newer age marutis, Although i know that exterior panels contribute very less in dissipating the energy when in the event of a crash.Also there are no airbags or abs in this model.I had a few instances where i had a tire lock up situation owing to hard braking but i managed to control by easing the brake pressure thereby regaining steering control, So in that way, It sort of actually teaches you on regulating brake pressure and helps you to be a better driver if that makes sense.The suspension is pretty beat up and there is quite a bit of rust on the underbody.The odo reads at 67000 kms as of writing this post and the car has served well for our purposes till now and we are now considering the altroz turbo petrol as our next car.
Well, my dad was riding a 10 year old i20, we just wanted to upgrade to a new small car , since he is 65 years old and need a small and automatic car. I did various researches and shortlisted Santro Magna & Wagon R VXI 1.2 Optional. I was shocked to know that Santro has dual Airbags in only Asta model (Does safety feature has any thing to do with models ?) Anyways, finalised Wagon R VXI Automatic (O) since this model is having dual front Airbags but ultimately purchased ZXI AMT.Drive was very good, engine was refined but i had slight issues with the Dealer, who gave me August 2019 Car on 23rd January and even i asked him about model, he said, for 2020 manufactured cars you have to wait for couple of months but when dealer is giving a 6 months old car, then atleast some discount should have been provided. Glad that vehicle is BS6 (As said by Dealer, but I don't trust them) There were some scratches / minor dent in front bumper, which i checked and told to Dealer (He replaced with another new car, Sad that same will be sold to someone else).I was dissapointed by the fact, if someone is buying a new car, then Dealers can make you fool.This is not my first car, prior to this our family already ownedToyota Qualis 2000Toyota Qualis 2003Toyota Qualis 2004Toyota Innova 2006Maruti Wagon R LXI 2007Hyundai I20 Asta 2009Hyundai i20 Asta 2013Hyundai I20 Sports 2013Maruti Wagon R ZXI AMT 2020
Wagon r is a much underrated car, But it is a very smart choice and value for money.Now i'm going for second car and having driven wagon r for 8+ years i do end up comparing my experience in terms of space- headroom, Legroom and superior drivers field of vision in wagon r where it hard to beat even today with so many options available in the market.Bt wagon r could have been even better, Had if it just come with safety features like tata nexon.But wagon r is a very comfortable family car none the less.Easy to drive, Superb field of vision that gives a lot of confidence when on road - this aspect is even better than many premium cars.Great head and leg rooms both in front and rear, Sufficient boot space.Though storage space on doors is desirable.Greatest advantage is zero maintenance and great milage.I constant get close to 18-19 kmpl in city driving.On an average it cost less than rs.5000 per annum.What i love about wagon r is big rear view mirrors.Also my original tyres lasted 45000+ kms, My original battery lasted more than 7 years.Overall wagon r is best car for those who are good behind wheels and can ignore it's lacking on safety features.Another plus point is when riding a wagonr one does not feel cluster phobic or suffocating inside the car even when driving with 4-5 persons and glass rolled up.
I have bought my wagon R vxi model on September 2015 and I have driven about 53000kms so far including a single day journey of 1100 kms from Kolhapur in Maharashtra to Chennai via Karnataka. Overall performance of the car is satisfactory. It is extremely comfortable and spacious and can easily accommodate 5 persons. Overall mileage is average . I am getting about 13 km/l in city and about 16-17 km/l on Highway. maintenance cost is satisfactory and if you put company synthetic Engine Oil it goes about 6500/- to 9500/- in one time service visit after 10000 kms.Positive 1. Commendable road visibility and big spacious interiors.2. Lot of room to put bottle holders and other items in the car.3. Hassle free city and highway driving4. Easy on maintainance5. Easy ingress for taller and women due to door opening at 90 Degree angle.6. Decent fuel tank capacity of 34 litresNegative :1. Poor plastic components in interior which start rattling after 15000 kms2. Mileage is less for a 998 cc car3. No bluetooth connectivity, multi functional steering wheel or touchscreen infotainment system at the time of purchase.4. Poor stock tyres that give away in 33000 kms.5. Poor cabin insulation for road noises.
The car do look like a box ,there is nothing glamorous about the car even the new version are becoming uglier generation by generation .Do not give comfort of even sitting for someone of height 6 ft .The boot space is so less (yeah! Yous hould be like what do you want for that price) but yes the dashboard parts continously hit your knees ,not comfortable at all still I am not talking about the rear seats they are even worse ,engine sometimes gets dead during the shifting of gears (Not only me I have seen every driver struggling on that).There is no safety measures in the car( My uncle once met with accident in our car fortunately he was thrown away from the car when the car fall into a ditch ,if he was not he surely had died ,the car was turned into a heap of metal junk ,there ia not even body skeleton it was like when a kabadiwala come to your house for garbage and he crush everything to be fitted in his bag ,the car was no less than it..Hope they pay attention to safety features and add some air bags and body skeleton to the car .Yes suzuki car are meant for mileage ( we have seen ad on like "kitna deti hai" ) but seriously not only mileage counts plus don"t make it like a box .
