REVIEW Hi all, I bought Alto Lx in Dec 2007, It has already done 26000, Kms. No issues with Clutch at all as complained by some users. I often take my car for long drives. I love the car , it's look, fuel efficency & almost zero maintenance makes it the most suitable car in the small segmant for Mid class families. I truly love the car & it's performance. Asking more than that would be injustice, comparing the caliber (796) cc & the price of the car.

5) Useless Tyre quality.
6) Incomplete Roofing near Dickey shocks. Welding clearly visible.

REVIEW : I have purchased Alto LXI (BSIII) on 04/01/2010. I am ln love with it. It is a good car for middle class small family. Yes, there may be a pick up problem when AC is on but it should be remembered that is only a 796 cc car.Considering the price and cc this is not at all a problem. Otherwise other things like mileage, power steering, ac, seats are good enough.

REVIEW : I bought a Alto automatic in 2004. Here in the UK it comes with a 3 speed gearbox and a 1061cc engine.Its been the best city car I have owned.Reliability has been excellent,now with 38000 miles on the clock it still runs like new.The engine oil I change every 4000 miles.Yes its true about the comments of basic finish and plastics.Value for money I cannot fault it. I no longer have it serviced by my Suzuki agent,but go to a small local garage I have trusted for years.He charges me half the cost!.I do wish the car was fitted with air conditioning in the uk.

REVIEW : Who cares about Alto's future in 2010? Its a great car till the time it meets and exceeds all your expectations from a car.

Tata SUCKS. TATA manufatcures good cars but has the WORST SERVCIE STAFF. You take your car to TATA Service statuion for solving 1 complaint, they'll give you a huge estimate stating that it's because of 3 or 4 parts worn out, you get them fixed, but the problem still remains there. You take your car again to the Service Station, yell at the Manager, then your car is fixed after incurring additional expenses.

I'm 100% sure pepole would face the same problem with TATA Nano. So TATA Nano can't be a match for Maruti Alto.

REVIEW : hi, to all who posted their reviews and those who are reading it. I have a scorpio, a saffari, an opel astra, a palio sports but then too i bought an Alto because its the best to drive in traffic. Size is small, drive is awesome & service is fantastic. For the people who complain about the AC should first learn how to use an AC. You should not just put the AC on and forget it. You should keep changing the speed of the fan and also switch it off when you come down to the first gear. And the fellow who has problems with the clutch plate should go and join a driving class because the clutch only konks off when u use the clutch too much. Their is no other reason for a clutch to burst. I have an experience of driving many brands and i travel appro. 2000 kms a week. MY EXPERIENCE SAYS "NOTHING CAN BE BETTER THAN THIS IF U VALUE UR MONEY AND HAVE A SMALL FAMILY" ITS THE BEST

REVIEW : I bought my first car, in fact, an Alto LXi, which has become a part of our family. This little beauty seldom complains of any problems. I would give it 9 out of 10 for its comfort and ease of handling. But the only problem is the poor pickup while the AC is on. But all the other positive points mellow down this disadvantage. I am an extremely satisfied customer of Alto.

REVIEW : I have a Maruti Alto-LX, 2007, June model. I am very much satisfied with the looks, performance and the driving comfort. I used the car to run more than 1000Kms continuously on highway, with no tension. soon i am going for the another trip. Extra mile Premium petrol is best suited for the high mileage (my experience is for more than 23kmpl in my previous trip). Use nitrogen in your tyres for more milage and safety for tyres. It is best to use nitrogen for less wear and tear for the tyres.

REVIEW : I purchased alto on14/8/2008. Its clutch got worned out only after 2000KMS.Replaced the Clutch and second one is also worned out on 3800KMS. We are using cars for last ten years of different model of maruti but no such problem was ever faced. While dealer is giving reason as driving fault.Is there any relation with gap of fly wheel and clutch. Is it the main reason for abnormal wear of clutch plate.

REVIEW : Alto is a small car. but smaller than matiz which i had to sell because of spare part problem. comparing these two cars matiz had very fast pickup and was speedier . i dont know the mileage for alto but it is said it will give km/litre. Steering of alto is also too slim for my hands. its rear view mirror is of low quality. its pick up is slow. Well i think it is good from the point of view of accidents caused due to rash driving. i will give it 6/10.

POSTED ON : June 14, 2006
REVIEW : My Alto LXI was good & excellent mileage 20 to 22 kms/ltr on highway without air con. Unfortunately after second service in Bimal service center, Bangalore problems such as low mileage 13 to 14 kms/ l tr, power & jerks in lower gear shifting was found. For jerks clutch ass y is replaced for rectification on the brand new car. Most of the time the dealers expect & concerned 10 out of 10 points on the feed back form. Customer like me is pushed to the corner & suspecting the driving skills, road conditions, fuel quality etc. it is very important that the service skills for the car performance not only the car brand.

REVIEW : My Alto LX BLL is a fuel guzzler at 8.5 to 9 km pl on Mumbai roads. Its low on power markedly, with ac on, but very comfortable to drive and trouble free.

POSTED ON : June 7, 2006
REVIEW : I used to be a great admirer of the Alto, however the latest one that i bought, the one i own, is a vehicle that sucks a great amount of petrol. Maruti acknowledges that there have been 6 major repair carried out under warranty on this 7 month old car and they are not ready to replace it. I have been with Maruti for 15 years however, this experience is not good enough a reason for me to switch my loyalty to another company

POSTED ON : May 25, 2006

REVIEW : Alto is great value for money. It is the best city car with great pick up, good fuel efficiency, and fairly comfortable for 4 persons. It could do better gear shift and cabin noise reduction AC is fantastic.

REVIEW : bought my Alto in 2004 , have had the car for 2 years now. Been a trouble free car and easy to maintain. mileage is also decent, around 14 km pl on an average with AC city driving. It loses all its power with the ac on and doesn't have much even with ac off. Overall, a very good first car.
