Alto LX silky silver is my second car after Maruti 800 DX 5-Speed, I chose it because of low cost of purchase, maintenance and the brand trust that I got from my first car. We bought the car from Audi Motors, Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan in last month of 2010. The experience was positive and painless owing to new dealership that opened recently in our city. We went for full payment at once, which was Rs.3,34,000/- on road, with all the accessories, RTO and Insurance. Today, the Alto has been driven around 32,000 kilometers. I mainly used it on highways 80% percent of the Kms driven. Most of the time my car is driven with full passenger capacity of either 4 or 5. I barely remember driving it alone as I purchased it for family requirement as our village has less public transport connectivity. Driving alone, I prefer my bike. We are getting a decent mileage of around 18-19 all the time. The stock Apollo tubeless tyres are running quite good even after completing 6 years with just 2 punctures, planning to change the same at 40,000 kms. AC performance is quite good and it takes less than 5 minutes to cool down even in hot summers. The only drawback using AC is to comprise with the engine power owing to its 0.8 liter engine. There is almost 10-15% reduction in engine power with AC on, but once the car is on highways you won?t feel the difference. My car was bought and has always been serviced at Audi Motors, Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan. I have not visited any other workshop for anything to do with the car. At around 22,000 kms there was a problem with the throwback bearing and I got it replaced at the service center only. The only shocking thing that I noticed was the labor cost. The charged a labor cost of around 1100 and the part cost was only 500. I inquired about this from the service personnel and he explained me for the high labor cost. The whole gearbox needs to be separated from the engine to access the clutch assembly and this is the main reason for the high labor cost. Apart from this I haven?t spend anything on the parts, its just the regular service, oil and coolant changes that my car had gone through. Pros Low maintenance cost Excellent fuel economy Light, & easy to drive Excellent AC Excellent after-sales service Cons Not so effective brakes at 90+ speed. Lack of initial acceleration with AC on Low ground clearance (with full load)
