Cars Q&A

Hello All, I am planning to purchase a second hand car.I have narrowed down to a 1999 Model Maruti Zen(AC,Power Windows) which have done 60k kilometres. Another option is a 2004 Maruti 800(AC) which has done 12k kilometres. The price for the Zen is 1.30lakhs(I dont know the owner of the car) The price for the Maruti 800 is 1 lakh.(Owner is my relative lady) Both car looks good.No scratches etc. Which do you thinks is the better buy in terms of maintence,mileage and durability.I plan to drive mostly in city and once a year trip to Bangalore(800kms)

  • 100 percent go for Maruti 800. the first one i.e. ZEN is almost dead by all means by now after covering for 10 years.

  • HI
    YOU MUST GO FOR MARUTI 800.
    RUNNING 800 KM IN MARUTI 800 IS NO BIG DEAL .I HAVE TRAVELED 1200 KM IN M 800 ALMOST NON STOP FROM DELHI TO SHAHDOL IN M.P. IN ABOUT 18 HOURS AS THE ROAD WAS NOT GOOD.

  • I have experince with M800 is about 500 KM. I didnot have any problem. But Roads was good. But still I dont think 4 years old car can trouble
    Answer by Ankit on Apr 1, 2009

  • As I wrote earlier driving is noproblem at all.The Zen is an older model now out of production and with more mileage.Choose the M800 any day
