    Question is buying baleno a wrong choice ?

    hello. i am planning to buy a car for my self. i was intrested in baleno jxr or some model like from 2000 to 2004. but a car dealer told me that buying baleno is a wrong choise. its head starts making some wierd noises when load is applied on the engine in the form of using ac and stuff. i was getting 2004 jxr for 4.8 lac to 5.2 lac. but after his advice i am really in no man's land. i dont know where or how to proced. so i thought that it would be better to ask the guru's for some positive and valid sugession. my budged is 5.5 lac maximum. within 5.5 would be something awesome. please do help me out on this one.

    on the other hand i am also looking for honda city exis 2000 or 2001 model within the same price range. but same is the case here. CONFUSED. Any positive help would be appreciated ..

    UPDATE: Allhumdillah I purchased Baleno 99 JDM

    Baleno is a good car if u get one in pristine condition

    on the other hand city would be hard to find in a budget of 5.5 in good condition

    I dont agree with anyonee of you. I have a Baleno and it's a nice car. And when u talk about "coils" then this problem is with all cars.

    Baleno is a great car. I had it for over one year. It was awesome. I would recommend you to buy a Baleno and change your dumb mechanic.

    well yesterday i shortlisted the names and contacts of the people saling their baleno. i went today like at their houses. the common thing every owner told me is never run ac while running your car on load or try to over rev your baleno or the head will burst and wai coil ka masla. i found a person saling his baleno sports black colour 2005 model for 5.7 lac. i gave him a token amount because the car drove like a charm but he mentioned that this car dont have any ac !!! i tuk the token money away with pain in my heart like it was the best baleno short listed among 32 balenos i searched for. i went to sadar wha k sab mechanics ka yai gilla baleno sa k masla dyge ruladyge. pher i went to tariq road the same head problem. the intresting thing i found is i can get honda city exis for as low as 5.2 to 5.7 lac max. but it need to be searched well hard luck as one car is in my garage for sale and other can not be found uptill now . . . . but i am now desprate for that city after hearing so much of garbage from mechanics dealers etc still i want to buy a good car for me

    My cousine owns rent a car business ... He owns two baleno along with other vehicles, xli cultus etc ... Upon my reliability and durability question my cousine's answer was "buhat dheedh aur khota gari hai ... Suspension buhat solid hai aur kaam buhat kam nikalti hai " ..... I dnt have personal experience ... But drove couple of times ... The balenos i drove were perhapes in excellent conditions ...
