Use to very much like Santro. But my collegue bought exec model well maintained 70k driven and i drive my well maintained 99 Rola. We car pool and his car needed regular maintenance. Head gaskit, than rings, clutch plate pressure plate, AC issue and recently his clutch cable housing broke the body and they say alot of santros having this issue. He had to get whole dashboard removed to get it fixed and he is good in maintaining car. All this happened in 1.5 years. On the other hand bcoz we use his santro one day and my rola next the only maintenance i did was one fan relay atopped working, one seal leaked. Good points, AC was fine, Petrol avg was 15+. Another friend got Cultus 2007 hmm he faced much less issues.
