      is it time to change the car (old zen 2005 model 67k)

      In the past one year my old zen 2005 model done 67k has given me lot of problems. It started with the clutch plates and they had to be replaced. Then AC compressor was gone and left side CV shaft started giving creaking noise. Had to spend 25k on these two repair. Now its only 2 months after this last repair I hear some creaking noise on the right side which is still low. Now I am getting confused after so many repairs in last one year that is it better to change the CAR, although I have no intention of spending 7-8 lacs on a new car for bangalore city but frequent repairs are bothering me now. Please give some advice on the current issues and is it ok to keep getting repaired then i will reach a stable state.

      Thanks

      PS: i really luv this old zen car and in the past 12 years never had a single issue on this one.

      Can you not hang on for just over a year, since then BS-VI will be here.

      Id say change ASAP
      BS VI or not, an unreliable and unsafe by todays standards car means trouble
      If you want, opt for a used car perhaps from one of the Japanese or Korean stables , then buy a new car when BS VI kicks in, that way you have your cake and eat it too

      Although your car is more than 12yrs old. The mileage is not much. I should think the car should last some more years. Get is checked by some experienced workshop

      Before buying a new car just check the new car's insurance and renewal every year. It is one of the biggest gifts from this govt.
      I went with a friend to check Jeep Compass.. the insurance was 75k per year! The ex-showroom value was 18 lakh IIRC.
