    @Waseem

    Good nodes

    a)Excellent fuel consumption
    b)Fabulous Cng setup
    c)Strong engineered engine
    d)Cool airconditioning system
    e)rough & tough mechanical stuff
    f)sporty ride

    BAD sectors

    a)bulshit General stock tyres
    b)very rough sushades
    c)Extremme unreliable breaks
    d)headlights are not enough at nicght
    e)trunk space with cng tank i not at all enough for family lng rides.

    Thats it.
    I own 2005 JXR Cng baleno. as a businessman i would say its the most reliable car for long drives, when concentrating over fuel consumption---pickup---stability.

    Athar

    no way ...baleno is the most pathetic car. i used to own baleno jxr2003.it is a pain in neck.

    no pick,no comfort,pathetic brakes,lights wid no light, no good aftersale service.

    the only good model in baleno was the gti version.

    I second that man, the baleno's brakes are TERRIBLE.. I guarantee go to any auto denter and you'll see a baleno there, or look at the balenos on the road and your bound to see most of them with some body damage.

    Secondly, the LIGHTS are HORRIFIC! I put a relay on them, new bulbs, and fog lights, but still you cant see anything at night time! And the car is so low to the ground.

    If you want a car in that price range, get a civic exi or a corolla xli

    Baleno is definately worth buying.
    Specialy the 99-01 models, it is a good compact car with a normal price tag.

    There r some minor faults but which car dosen't have them.

    @waseem

    please be advised that baleno is being replaced by LIANA. so either u should buy that or if u want to buy an older baleno go for 1.6 GTi and install CNG. 1.3 baleno has no pick and its not fun to drive.
