Edit: Talking about Eminent Automatic 1.6 with m16a
Excellent car. I kept one for more than a year and thoroughly enjoyed it. I upgraded to Honda BR-V and I am left wondering what the hell I am paying extra 20 lac for. Some points below:
Don't buy a cheap one. Get a clean one which hasn't had jugars done. Electrics and sensors have to be in original condition. I got mine 2010 model for 8 lacs at that time.
The car never over heats if well maintained. Just have the cooling system checked completely once you buy it and it will never over heat. Mine over heated once early in my ownership because the thermostat valve was faulty. Got it changed and after that never once had to look at heat gauge.
Mileage is an issue you will get 7.5 with heavy foot. above 8 with light foot. My BR-V is also giving me 9.9 in winters and 9 in summers.
Went to Shogran, Naran in mine with 6 adults and 4 kids, went smoothly. There is an aabshar hotel near Nathia Gali with very steep climb if you want to park at the top. Liana climbed with ease with 10 (6 adults, 4 kids) people and luggage. BR-V also managed to climb there with similar load but was slower and had difficulty on the same climb with same load.
Cannot stress this enough, you have to get a clean one which has not overheated or desi jugars done
