New Hyundai Santro GL

Recommended Posts

hi everyone !!!! yesterday we bought our new hyundai santro gl model from charisma hyundai chandigarh.......we did it after selling our decade old cielo fitted with alloys , low profile new tyres , jvc cd changer with subwoofer :((...reason for sad face is i cannot tell at what price i sold it...anyways we wanted a car as a spare for local use only as we use esteem and indigo for daily commuting....so we were not interested in investing 5-6 lacs...and after going through used car market also ...we saw swift 2005 dec model 33,000 km running and he was asking 3,20,000 for same..but as per our estimate it was worth 2,80,000 so we refused.....finally we settled for new santro base model as i dont like body colored bumpers in santro GLS( just my taste...u all must have your own tastes reg that)....so what we got our santro for--- approx price 3,34,000 ( its 3,33,800 something)

+ free bies ( insurance , car cover, seat cover, mud flaps, central locking, car perfume , coating (they call it teflon coating i call it polishing),number plate, mp3 player with 4speakers (which we said no...so they subtracted 4500/-)

...so we got our car for 3,30,000 approx. ...registration chgs will be extra .... and i am happy to say it is worth the buy as it has got tall stance ...we all around 6' in the family.....moreover its pleasure to drive in city with its low end torque....it picks effortlessly from 30ks in 4 th gear.......

earlier we were planing for alto but after T.D this i will say i am more than happy to pay 30,000 more for this beauty.....as i am no more a fan of maruti dealer ships here in chandigarh ....

hi once again to everyone!!just an update i took santro for a 200 km ride on highway and it has returned 18 kmpl with A.C. and yes thats too without any service... my brother has changed its tyres to tubeless michelin 165/65 R13 with alloys...maximum i drove on higway was 80km/hr coz of run in period......just want to ask you fellows since it has done close to 900 kms when can i take it for real ride....shall i wait till 1500-2000 kms to get all things set in or now is the time ....
