Question
Sir, I am planning to buy a used Santro Xing in coimbatore. Yesterday i saw one car xing xl 2007 may month registered run only 18k kms used by retiree with some scratches and 1 or 2 dents in body and observed when changing gear engine rpm increases but car moves only very slowly. Is it due to clucth plate worn out. Will the change of clucth plate will rectify the problem or is it known problem in santro Xing model .Will the mileage will be affected of this issues.What will be cost of cluth plate for this model.

Hi,
The identification of problem is right. Changeing of worn clutch plate would certainly help for smoother operation. For Ac not effective,thorough inspection is needed to check the pressure generated by compressor, controls alfunctioning etc . After thorough inspection only go for gas filling. Your relative has given proper estimate. However the quoting price of 2.7 lac seems to be on higher side.It can be negotiated for another 25k or so.

The problem seems to be of clutch plate indeed. Changing it will cost around 3.5 K including labor job.

The AC needs cleaning and may be gas refilling.

Seeing Coimbatore Car prices, this price seems decent, however see if you can manage to get the car at 2.5 L

Well I have used Santro for more than 4 years.The car is not only designed well for the segment but also manufactured well.The problem you are mentioning I feel is due to use & should be taken care of at any company service centre.I also feel the price can be marginally negotiated.

Answer by Nagesh 12 December 2009

It will be better to consult expert regarding AC and i feel the price is too high and it should be around 2.10lacs to 2.40 lacs

Sorry i am late to reply. You could negotiate for max 2.5. The authorised workshop at coimbatore is very good and they would do an excellent job.
