    hello!
    your age won't looks like your life will ruin......you have much more to see in your life...soooo anywayz....
    i personally listen that Alto CNG was best on performance as it has overpowered engine 4 cyl balanced engine and its like just awsome on CNG...no power loss problem...no load on A/C...so i don't think its like that...some common faults may occur....so its common in suzuki like alwayz.....

    @Ser
    LOL,

    Waisay i heard the opposite for the VXR. no economy, no pick, no top end.
    my neighbour sold it after 1 week of purchase
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    What do we expect from a 1.0 Ltr car running on CNG. 0-100 kph in 20-30 seconds. Top speed of 110 - 120 kph and power enough to climb Damni-Koh resort of Islamabad. If your Alto can do this all, then relax and enjoy. It cant do any thing better than this.

    Well all the altos I have seen have the problem that they it takes really long to start them on cng and sometimes one has to convert to petrol just to start them......... economy on cng is not that good but acceleration is as good as any other 1 litre cng car in the market....... but with the most expensive parts in its category........it's simply not the car to buy.....

    I recently purchased Alto VXR CNG and had driven 2000 kms. The pickup on CNG is not good as compared to petrol let alone running with A/C ON. Two or more people are sitting back really reduces the power. Is there any suggestion to improve the pickup and speed.

    no suggestions rashid 71
    i will reiterate again
    dont look for desirable qualities in a suzuki Alto. Just drive it with irritations and sell it whenever u want. This is where this car is good and thats it. After all its a market kee gaari, not a Driver's car.

    I have a 2006 Alto VXR CNG with 6800km. The car does 135KPH on CNG and 165KPH on petrol....The car was very slow when I bought it new. It started doing these numbers after 5000km. I hope the numbers go higher

    @rashid71: btw, compressor takes more load if u don't have right amount of R134 (over filled/less).
    @bilalahm: starter motor is not bad either, though it does not have cheap parts. i know of one case i.e. front bumper, right head lamp, and side fender cost Rs. 19700/-

    gone are those days when suzuki vehicles had cheap spares. now this is applicable to only Mehran. no other suzuki vehicle has cheap spares. always remember before buying suzuki.

    Is there any technical reason after 5000 kms the vehicle performs well or just your observations. I wish my alto touches 135kph and 165kph on cng and petrol respectively

    yeah it can touch 135, but it is very slow in pick, like jeeps

    no rocket science involved in alto's mfg, so don't push it far like a rocket.
    it's dangerous to drive it over 120km/hr.

    Before 5000KMH I had the dealer tune the car and the car did 105KMH....Very slowly..After being fedup with the dealer I went on the super highway,and started doing my own tuning. After about 30min the car did 130KMH...I was happy because the car reached 100 pretty quick and the rest slowly. I left the setings alone and drove back and the car did 135KMH. Now the car Redlines 1-2-3 @ 6000RPM...For the city its nice and for the highway 110-135KMH Its good...

    No guessing......I istalled an RPM gauge as soon as I bought the car...It is very important for a new motor....

    hello!
    ALto
    Curb Weight: not more than max 800kgs....
    Engine...4 Cyl(as 4 cyl is like "light in cave" like thing in Suzuki...mostly got 3 cyl in hatch liek cultus and mehran)
    4-Cyl 970cc engine...54hp@5,500rpms....
    and pplz said its slow on pick...
    what the hell is that physics...Cultus with same hps much weight + 3 cyls....and its good on pick and alto was worse...also alto sucks on CNG???yaar think that its in all aspects better than cultus...torque..get same as cultus on just 2500rpms whereas cultus goes on 3000rpms...so sir....don't go with what ppl said....i have new alto woth CNG in my neighbours....no problem i see him regarding to CNG or starting...also some close friends drive 1000cc alto and they are on CNG + A/C with 4 ppl...the driver said that there is nothing like load on engine...car was doing just great.....so i consider more experiences and technical stuffs....so i won't think its true.....
    Thanxxx
