Cars Q&A

I am planning to buy a used family (5 persons) car which should be VERY COST EFFECTIVE in all aspects (low running and maintenance costs). The vehicle is primarily intended for transportation only and aesthetics is of no importance. The car will not run more than 10000 km/yr and not frequently it will be used in city. Car should run at speed of at least 100km/hr. My question is should I be buying petrol or diesel car also considering current and future price gap between the two fuels? Can you please recommend suitable models?

Mr Vikram
hold on till the tatas launch their ventre mpv which runs on diesel and very spacious worth the wait.

Nano is not at all a car to have a car. It is just like a bajaj auto chasis with car boady. Don't go for it.

hi for request..i can suggest some ideas whach may help..

1. as your monthly running is around 850 km only, buying a diesel car will serve no purpose..u will end up spending much more than u ll save along with increased value of maintenence...

2. consider buying a maruti swift or santro ...easily accomodates 5 people...u can also consider buying palio or petra or ikon which u can get for a steal as des are good cars and offer a good deal in second hand market..

i hope dis helps...
