1987 Maruti 800 0.8
Extremely reliable and economical
Had to change the suspensions 2 years back.
When the car was brand new, the radiator was leaking and the front door would not lock, but the dealer was quite competent. In-fact dad had befriended a very good mechanic at the dealership and so the car always remained in top shape.
The car is truly the people's car of India. Small, nimble, and takes you from point A to point B without hassle.
My dad has been driving this since 1987 and he today he hates driving any big cars Corolla/Accent etc. while driving around in the city.
At high speeds on highways it does give you jitters, but then it's not advisable to take it too fast.
Extremely reliable. Extremely economical. Consistently gave 18-20 kms./litre.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
