A user review on Maruti Suzuki Alto K10. Written by
on 31 October, 2018
Price: ₹ 3.61 - 4.40L
Ex-showroom, New Delhi
||Few thousand kilometers
Buying experience :While buying please do take care at what salesman is promising as in most of the cases they make false promises and go for cash discount rather than accessories as most of the time Maruti do not have accessories in stock.
Riding experience: Its ok at this price can't expect more but donot consider it value for money and also the car has no resale value so though it might feel attractive at first but trust me its not and even if you are buying do not ride it at more than 80Km/hr since it vibrates a lot
Details about looks, performance etc: Looks are ok but the dashboard and doors are too weak OR the quality is not at all good, even if you are buying it please roll down mirrors and open and close door just once, you will come to know about the quality of doors in a second, they make a thumping noise as if the door sheets are too weak and trust me they are. Always take test drive and do not use AC OR play any music on highway you can hear a lot of engine and door knob noise, its because in order to increase mileage Maruti made the car too light and the front, and side panels are just thin steel/aluminum sheets, so no protection at all. Also its having 998cc engine at this weight which is way too much at this weight. So in case if you have made decision to buy it please roll down windows and open and close door, open the engine and check the engine bay while the engine is running you will come to know what i am saying. Even if it is giving more average than its opponents the company has sacrificed customer security for it and you would not be able to save much since in city average is somewhere around 14-15KM/ltr
Servicing and maintenance: Servicing is cheap but service stations usually do not have cameras so you cannot see what parts are actually changed and it was in recent news that Maruti charged customer for changing oil but infact nothing was changed and everything was recorded on customer's dashboard camera so take it to service only when you have all day to see if service team is changing really what they are billing you for.
Pros and Cons: It is selling only because of mileage promise that Maruti has made but that's ARAI average and usually its done without accessories etc. so you will get mileage but only as a false promise and what so ever you are getting will be blamed on your driving skills, so though Maruti had good name but its a thing of past now, support is only when you have bought a new car and if you have any complaint after a year OR two you have to deal directly with Maruti service OR dealer as support will transfer your conversation to them.
The positive reviews that we see are generally created by companies OR are of customers who have left it withing first year OR so, So if you are changing car every year its good for you OR else please test drive first and decide accordingly
