2000 Hyundai Santro LX petrol 999 cc from India


Santro is a complete car


I had only one major problem, AC stopped working very third day I bought the car. I took it to dealer they fixed it for me, since then last 4 years I had no issues with the Car.

General Comments:

Engine is so dam smooth some times I have doubts at the traffic light if the engine is running.

It has excellent pickup & Gear ratio. I don't have to make frequent gear changes as it has lot of bandwidth in each gear.

Interior plastic material used is of good quality, it does not give cheap feel.

I have driven it 500Km at a stretch nonstop, and would stop only for refuels. Car never showed any signs of over heating.

I have never driven a car like this in this segment. It's a true value for Money. All I had spent on this car is for Scheduled maintenance. I had never any problems except for the 3rd day when I bought it new.

Santro is a complete car for what you are paying.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
