      2003 Maruti Esteem LX longterm reivew

      In Feb 2010, My brother-in-law came to know about an 2003 Maruti Esteem LX for sale through his friend. The condition and price of the car was too good to resist and He sealed the deal eventough the RC had a fouth owner tag and 92k on odo.

      I even hesitated to take a testdrive since it is a non-power steering and outdated car. but my time with the Esteem proved me wrong.
      In August 2010, I brought the Esteem from my B-I-L and It still running like a tank. earlier LPG kit was installed and I removed LPG the tank and running only on Petrol.

      Snapshot:
      Odo on August 2010 - 97K kilometers
      Odo on December 2015 - 122K kilometers
      Average Mileage - 15 to 16 kmpl
      Upkeep cost in past 4 years - 90K (including Insurance - 4 times, 6 services, 1 set of tyres, repair and maintanence and new Audio HU)
      Total Breakdowns - 1 time due to water pump failure infront of DLF Porur chennai.
      Highest speed - 130 km/hr
      How long I am planning to keep - 1 more year
      longest distance travelled in a day (regularly) - 400kms

      Pros - Good mileage, Butter smooth engine, trouble free, low maintanence cost, go anywhere ground clearence, Pickup.
      Cons - Rattle, Dull headlamps.
