Recently i t broke down after filling diesel 17ltrs ( confirmed it was deisel) car started giving out black smoke from exhaust , even after removing key from ignition engine kept running for some time . now the service station says the high pressure pump to be replaced and engine block to be replaced . kindly advice . whats the cost for replacing the above ?
what will be my car resale value after this?
your car is already done 1.5 lacs km you shoud give it to the total loss or sold it as it is dont waste money on it and byu a new micra mc diesel its a very good option now a days with better fuel efficiency and good engine option and ac too
Maruti has a good and vast service network and there will be no problem of maintenance and replacement of parts at later stage but the resale value of the car might decrease as the company has decided to discontinue the vehicle. Despite this, there will never be any shortage of parts as manufacturers make parts for next 10 years. Also, as Ritz share a good number of parts with its sibling Swift there will be no shortage whatsoever. If you would like to consider, the Indian auto market has many other offerings in the same segment such as Tata Bolt, Nissan Micra, Ford Figo, Honda Brio and Grand i10, Maruti Swift, Chevrolet Sail hatchback.
