      Estilo- Ownership report

      This is my first ownership report of my Estilo which is nearly 5 years/15000 Kms old and still going strong. I had three options at that time and they were A-star,WagonR and Estilo. My mom didn't liked the looks of A-Star and the Estilo was my dad's choice so it was the car.
      What I like about the car -
      1) A good city car just what was needed.
      2) Compact size so finding space for parking is quite easy.
      3)Low maintenance cost. In five years I have spent on oil change and oil filter nothing more than that. It's a fill it and forget it car.
      4) Looks- I know this is the department where many can contradict but I personally like Estilo's look.

      What I don't like about the car-

      1) The A-piller in front which blocks the view of road while taking a turn.
      2) The rear seats aren't the most comfortable place to be in.
      3) Out in highway the Estilo just lacks the extra bit of power.
      4) The name- why Zen??? its completely a different car than the Zen.

      Details :

      Color- Champagne Beige
      Dealer- Mohan Motors Kolkata
      Trim- Zen Estilo Lxi
      CC- 1061
      Manufacturing year- 2008
      OTR- Rs. 365000/-

      City- Without AC 15 kmpl, with AC on 12 Kmpl.
      Highway- Without AC 18 kmpl with AC on 16 Kmpl.

      I have done numerous long trips with a top speed of 110 Km/hr.

      Accidents - 1) This happened some times back, I was going for a long drive with some friends and was cruising at about 90 Km/hr the suddenly a
      Tata Sumo decided to change lane without any warning and indicators after seeing that I slowed down car to around 40 Km/hr , but still now luck the Sumo dashed my car from left and the Tie rod got damaged. Had to change the tie rod.
      2) The second accident was a recent one. It was when a Santro decided to hit my car from behind, due to the impact the Bumper was completely damaged and mom was injured. Changed the Bumper from MASS.

      Issues- Now the main issue in my car is after hitting a pothole a tik tik noise from the steering but this noise is coming only when I'm rotating the
      Steering to right side. Have any idea why is this happening? I'm totally clueless

      A guess - worn or damaged CV joint.

      will visit MASS next month to rectify the problem. Previously the sound was much less but now the sound is more audible. It's kinda irritating and I'm also thinking about the safety.
