Cars Q&A

Question
I prefer to buy a petrol engine car rather than a diesel engine car because of its less noise and vibration. Also, the maintenance cost as also the initial cost is less. The only negative marking is its fuel cost. Would you suggest me to buy a Tata Indica Vista petrol car? What are its demerits?

If you are worried on maintenance cost of diesel engines, this perception is mis founded. There has been lot of upgradation in diesel engines over the years & the maintenance cost is not higher than petrol engines. Tata with their vista range has further modified & imporved on the diesel engine that gives more power & better efficiency than the V2 series. Moreover, if you have decided on a Tata product, go for the diesel version as tata's core cometancy is in diesel engine.
I myself own a 2001 model V2 DLS done 88K kms w/o any problems - do adhere to the recommended service schdule

If you are worried about price of petrol than its better to convert it 2 cng. It will have running cost of 1.25- 1.5 rs/km. In other contries price of petrol & diesel are same. It will be implemented in india also. Buy petrol car & convert it 2 cng
