Its a 2004 model FL package. I bought it in april it had around 30,000km on the odo now around six months have passed, it has completed 36,000km. Here is MY review..hope it helps the potential buyers.
The car is mostly in stock condition except for the tires 185/65/R14 (a little bigger), Stiffer rear springs (due to CNG and its low ride), Fog lights and the horn. I'm running it on CNG and travel 40-50kms daily. Gives me an average of Rs3/km with AC switched on.
Looks are far better than any 1000cc hatchback, Body is tough, haven't waxed it till now and it still shines. 10 out of 10
Again the dash and the "quite" cabin is far far better than its other 1000cc alternatives. Finishing and the quality is really good. Leg room in the front is fine but not at the back. I dont like the seats. 8 out of 10
Handling is too good and I love its low turning radius. Ride is very quite and smooth even on bumpy roads. Car is a bit low but doesn't hit the speed brakers with 2 persons inside and the CNG cylinder at the back with the stiffer rear springs but it does hit when 4-5 people are in the car. Overall very satisfying. 9/10
On petrol: Good for a 1000cc vvti engine and auto tranny 9/10.
On CNG: Quite fair. Doesn't affect me when i'm driving alone or with 1 more person BUT yes, feels under powered when more than 2 ppl and AC switched on so 5/10. (But who cares! people drive cultus VXLi which costs more than 8 lacs with just power steering and windows while I enjoy the luxuries, comfort and safety features of a car worth more than 15 lacs in just 6 lacs:P:P)
Power steering, windows and side mirrors, ABS brakes, 2 Air bags and Retractable side mirrors. I think its more than wht you can ask for in 6 lacs so 10+/10
Excellent value for money i'd say. If bought in good condition and taken care of.. won't give you ANY trouble. Just requires some knowledge and maintainance at the correct time. Not exagerrating but six months have passed and people still come up to me and ask abt the car and they love it when i tell them abt its safety features. Till the date i have succesfully convinced 4 random ppl who i met on the road to buy a vitz and they're Happy with it now.
So I decided to give it a treat..
- Bought Zic A+ for her (for Rs1600 )
- Denso Oil filter and a normal Air filter (Rs250 each)
- A pair of Mitsuba Alpha II horn:D (Rs 1000)
Brakes service is due - All this month's pocket money finished so will get it done next month.
The head lights.. still crystal clear.
