REVIEW : Maruti Esteem: The only Indian car that has excellent stability in high speeds. I tried 147 Km/hr and what I need to say, the performance is superb comparing to the same class cars. I got a Max. of 19 Km/ltr. on highway. Also its takes me in time anywhere I'm in busy schedules and business trips. because I found this car has very sudden acceleration and its shape is very aerodynamic to get quickly on to 100 KM speed. I've to maintain my Esteem for long years, because this is the superb car that I rode ever. Its a fact that you never get a new Esteem again from the Vendor, But you can buy a used car, because still Indian roads have Lakhs of Esteems and NO.1 populated sedan in Indian roads. Yes am a proud owner and its the matter of my Esteem.

REVIEW : I am a very proud owner of Esteem VXI Model 2007. My car has run 60000 Km, out of which approximately 18000 km have been covered on highways. The car handles superbly well on streets and highways alike, the engine is responsive and purrs like a cat under the hood, the front seats are very comfortable for long hauls. I get excellent fuel average, my maintenance cost is negligible, the car is comfortable. So far I have changed one set of tyres. It is a pity that MUL has discontinued the production of this excellent car.

I bought an esteem in 2005 lxi - the car has only done 19,00 kms. Pick up is very bad for such a light body and high bhp. My engineer uncle says that it could be because of incorrect MPFI tuning. The mechanic thought it was clutch. Can someone please advise on this. We have to switch off the AC before overtaking. The car is the last 85BHP model. The only thing I thought was the accelerator pedal is a bit notchy.

REVIEW : To increase the smoothness of pickup and better fuel efficiency add in per litre of petrol while topping up petrol tank : 0.8 ml castrol super tt + 2.0 ml acetone. This is to be added per litre of the petrol. So for a 30 litre top up you will need 25 ml castrol super tt and 60 ml acetone. I have been using since long and I get 12-13 kmpl in city drive and 20-23 on highways with full AC on. Its very easy to overtake other big cars in my Esteem with this concoction in my petrol tank, which was not the case earlier. Great car. Contact +91.9999.35.8857 for feed back. Thanks. I am in the process of developing a hydrogen oxygen fuel cell to further enhance the mileage. The cell runs on cars existing battary and uses water as raw material. No added cost.

To my dismay i found interiors not done properly and many other problems like headlight not adusted, fuel lid would not open trunk would not open column and constant rattling like in an old car. I am much disappointed in owning this piece of junk. Potential buyers can contact me for details of esteem lxi. Plz do test drive your vehicle before taking delivery and be careful about dealers also. I have owned 3 esteem before and purchased a new lxi thinking all the advantages my old cars gave me,but was shattered, maruti is taking customers for a ride,thier esteem lxi (my piece) dont offer what it promise .

REVIEW : I have got a Esteem Lxi since September 2005 and clocked 32000 kms till date. I am not at all happy with the quality of the car. All the interior material used is hopless and produces foul smell when kept in sun in locked conditions. Overall finish of the car is extremely poor. Lot of feedbacks are taken, but there seems to be no response from the OEM. All parts like Battery, wipers etc that come with new car are of bad quality and had to be replaced on my car within1 year.In fact wipers have never worked smoothly on this car so far, and every time I visit the dealership, they do something, but to no good effect. Doors are too light and start rattling time and again. I have bought this from Chowgule Industries, in Panaji - Goa, who attend to the car every time I take it there, but the same at my cost, for correct their faults. Although they attend to the car promptly, all points are not taken care of and due to which have to make numerous visits. Presently one plastic panel b elow steering wheel is to be replaced, since could not be fitted after removing time and again for various repairs. This is pending for last 2 months now. Of course the pick-up, power and performance of the engine has been very good, however built quality and drive is very bad. Advice to all is not to buy this vehicle if you are spending 5.0 lacs, since lot of other options are available.I for one would never buy a MARUTI, since the car is not good and to top it service also is not good.

REVIEW : I bought Black Esteem VXI last year in April 2005 from Pasco Automobiles. I did a market survey and also looked for features and was confused in Hyundai Accent & Esteem VXI. However finally i made up my mind as the CD Player and Sproiler were available in Esteem as per my budget while in accent i had to shell out another 55,000 for such features. Its really a classy car. Gives me a mileage of 16 KMPL on highways with A/C on. Pick is a issue right now however its a fact that after crossing 10,000 km the pick up will raise. I dont want to comment on the leg space as all others have alreay mentioned. However looking at the pocket the space is sufficient. Exteriors are excellent and they are topped with excellent service provided by the dealer Pasco Automobiles. Its definitely a good buy . Go for it.

REVIEW : I purchased an 10 year old second hand Esteem LX.It gives mileage of 12-14 kmpl in city and 15-16 kmpl on highway. But though it gives less mileaga I enjoy good running, smoothness and extremely good pickup. Instead of giving very less mileage I enjoy driving this car. I purchased it at the price of a bike. I often travel on highways with my family, which is not possible on a bike. Two months before I visited Pune, on the Bombay-Pune highway I topped the speed of 20kmph. I was very impressed with my car. I love my car very much.

REVIEW : Hi, I have gone through all the comments and difficulties in Esteem, I bought my car in August 2006, I accept all the tech. difficulties, faced. I also have gear suspension, problem, but very minor, happens sometimes. Free Service at authorised service centre also to be improved (i.e) not up to the expectation. They take so many feed backs from me, but I don't know what happens to that, (i.e) I want some response from the other side, so that I can correct if I am wrong. But look and fuel consumption wise it is the best car in it's category.

REVIEW : We got our Esteem VXI BII in July 2003 and have never had any trouble with it ever since. We are getting 14-15 KMPL in city limits with the AC on. Our black elegant Esteem even comes with a spoiler which enhances looks. Interiors are Ok, engine performance, suspension and handling is outstanding, especially since its a fully loaded car with all features. However, Maruti could have fitted a CD player instead of the Kenwood Radio/Cassette Player.

Fantastic buy, wonderful value for money. You'll never be sorry if you buy this car. Incidently it is the national rally champion in its class.

You have introduced Wagon R duo ( Petrol + LPG ), without reducing the original petrol tank capacity.

ESTEEM is highly successful car in all times. Why not you make it more consumer friendly and economical ---------- It is suggested that you should introduce Esteem duo [Petrol + CNG (14 KG maruti factory fitted tank]without reducing the existing petrol tank capacity in all models.

REVIEW : Esteem is indeed a good car. It has the potential to become the best car....I have few problems with the gear box of the car. I cant shift gears as smoothly as i want. Interior of the car can be improved. Maruti authorised service centers are not giving a good service.............Maruti should seriously make an attempt to upgrade the car. It needs to be taken to an altogether new level.

REVIEW : I have purchased this in Nov 05. Very elegant and good power steering. Good on fuel too. Engine conks unexpectedly when traffic light goes green and gear shifted to 1st. Also gear shifting is slightly uncomfortable from 3rd to 2nd. I hope it will settle down as car runs sufficient km.

REVIEW : Guys i purchased a second hand esteem which had clocked 82,000kms and i have been using it for more than one year now(more than 20000kms), the car is now post 1lac km mark but no sign of trouble.... awesome pickup, top speed and fuel efficiency of 13kmpl in city and 17kmpl on highway are really something to tak about...all i have done is got the car serviced at regular intervals that too the spares are pretty cheap.... i would recommend this car to anybody who has a small budget and loves to smash mud in the eyes of other costlier cars with its unbelievable pick up.... GO 4 IT

REVIEW : I bought Maruti Esteem VXI-BSIII in December 2005. The car is giving me a mileage of 13-14 kmpl in city with AC. The car has a very sluggish pickup. You HAVE to raise the engine to atleast 2000 rpm for a decent enough start. As far as aesthetics and useability goes the controls on the dashbord are of 90s era. The gear shifting is not at all smooth , I feel Maruti definitely needs to do something about their gear technology in ALL their cars.

REVIEW : Well after 3-4 months research in the market and dealers,i lastly opted for Maruti esteem LXi this feb.(between Ikon,Indigo,etc.) due to late mover, i got best discounts from competent auto.
Maruti esteem is most probably the best car comparing to others in the same price range..Most effective is the looks from outside. Its grille just like Baleno gives a look of a bigger car from front than it is..Interior is good..but not the best quality.Space in front is good but rear seats are somewhat clumsy.leg space is also very little.Boot space is ok.
But comparing the price and the service network, it is the best car to be recommended in its price range.

REVIEW : An Excellent car. However it has one design flaw for the front power windows. The movement up and down is not is jerky & rattles.Ever since I purchased the car this has been the only sore point. Complaints have not been satisfactorily attended to by the dealer/manufacturer.
