Esteem is definitely a very good car from Maruti

By Ron on 06 August 2009

Esteem is definitely a very good car from Maruti. I guess the first Sedan from the maruti stable. It sure is dis-continued, however you have so many Esteems on road in India, that Servicing and finding spare-parts wont be a problem at all. The local markets too have all possoble spare parts of Maruti's. So you have multiple options in the spare parts market too.

The average isn't at its best, however you can get a 13km/l. with AC on in the city. A 15 km/l. would be achieved on the highway, if you follow pretty good driving manners. You also have the option of fitting the car with an LPG kit which would reduce your running costs considerably.

About the drive, the car is really good to drive, however because of its low stance, you may find yourself more closer to the ground while driving. All other cars are seated a bit high though. The ground clearance is a hinderance only if you plan to do off-roading, but in city areas and highways - Just no issues. Some residential societies/complexes with these high-set speed breakers are a cause of concern when you are in an Esteem.

Overall this a very good car, and if you get a good deal, go for it! The maximum price that a 2008 Esteem would retail is upto around 3-3.5 lacs. So you can now calculate for models prior to that.

Cheers!
