Things to keep in mind before Buying Maruti Suzuki Alto

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    Popular used car Maruti Suzuki Alto

    EX-SHOWROOM ₹2,95,000
    The Maruti Suzuki Alto is a good city runabout and is also quite zippy to drive. Like all Maruti cars, it is fuel-efficient and also comes with an optional CNG model. However, it lacks a few comfort and convenience features that its competition offers. The rear seat is good for two adults at best, and the boot space capacity isn’t great either.
