1998 Suzuki Alto Vxi 993cc 12v SOHC petrol


High on Reliability, Low on the X-Factor


On a marathon trip of about 10000 km, the brakes failed after the liners had become too hot. There was smoke being emitted from the drums. We allowed the car to cool off for about 45 minutes after which it was back to normal.

Both Axle have been changed recently.

General Comments:

The plastics used inside the car are cheap

The body noise is excessive.

Seats ergonomically designed, very good for long drives.

Gears are short, hence frequent changing required in city traffic.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
