Maruti 800 was my first car. I bought this about 7 years back. That was before my marriage. I was working as a teacher in a school around 40 km away from my place.Traveling by bus to and fro was hectic as I had to catch two buses to reach there.So I bought an economy car which had an above average mileage.
Maruti 800 was at that time becoming common man’s car. I consulted with my friends and family and they all suggested I go for this. I availed an auto loan to buy this car.
I was very comfortable driving this car. I use to get 20 to 22 km/l mileage. There was practically no or little maintenance done for the car in the initial years.
My Maruti 800 was using 0.8 L 3 cylinder engine and it had 4 speed manual gear system. The leg space was less and height of the vehicle was also less.
I sold this car after using it for three years. I was very attached to the car and still sometimes miss my Maruti 800.
