The Matiz! Real Gem!

By Rajesh Shah on 01 December 2009

I have never ever seen such a perfect design. Everything is right in its place. It is a old 800cc Maruti 800 engine but much refined & powerful, better fuel economy of 23kms under standard condition. My 1999 model still today gives an average of 12 kms with ac always on in Ahmedebad city traffic condition. It is better than my zen estillo which gives 13 kms almost same average but lacks in so many respects to Matiz. The 10 years old Matiz suspensions are far better than 1 year old Zen Estillo.
As said and known by no. of people the spare parts are bit a problem & there is a always hanging sword over you when you met with an accident or major break down. However it is real fun to ride better than Santro, WagonR, Zen estillo & other small segment cars.
If you find the honest & clever mechanic & genuine spare parts dealer you can always opt for this car.
It is a like a Beetle of VolksVagon which shall never die irrespective of its manufacturer.
Tata of Korea or GM of USA should make it re alive. Since it is the best small car & won award of European countries for 3 (three) consecutive years. Might be for 1997, 1998 & 1999.
You can safely gamble on this car provided the car is in better condition & well maintained & continuously fully insured. {Insurance companies are reluctant to take insurance of this type of car however, with clear record of car they agree to accept}.
