Chevrolet Spark; the average looking average car
Personally, the experience that I have had with Chevrolet Spark hasn’t been really good. I finally understood why Chevrolet India gives a 3 years warranty. This car is good if one changes their car every 2-3 years. Right when the warranty got over, the visits to the service center increased. The car is cheap no doubt but the spare parts are priced sky high. This was the first car that I bought out of my own pocket and I am not happy with it, more because of the service that I get every time I have to visit the service center. For the first 2 years, the car drove well and comfortable but the mileage of the Chevrolet Spark has been around 12kmpl or even less at times. The engine is silent and on high speed of 100kmph also I didn’t feel the car vibrate. As I read somewhere that the riding quality of the Spark is much better than the Wagon-R. I agree initially it is but when it comes to maintenance and longevity, Spark is nowhere close to Wagon R. Wagon R, though I haven’t used it I believe that since it is a Maruti, the spare parts and service are cheap in terms of money, quick and world class. I am sure that with a Maruti Wagon R you don’t make as many visits to the service station that you have to make for Chevrolet Spark, sometimes for the AC repairs and sometimes because the headlight bulb has fused. The suspension though is pretty decent, but since this is my first car and I haven’t really driven any other car for this long so I can’t say how good it is in comparison to others. The boot space is small, of course, because of the small dimensions, but then I guess that’s something that we can compromise on because the benefit of this small size is the easy parking. I am not really disappointed as such because the Chevrolet Spark price range is such that I didn’t expect much anyway. But more of the negativity comes due to the poor and hassled after sale service that I get. I agree that General Motors India has limited service centers but whatever little number that they have, the service at those centers is also pathetic. I wouldn’t particularly suggest this car to anyone. After the test drive, I was very sure that this would be fantastic but after 2.5 years I realized that the test drive was deceiving and there is more that goes into purchasing a car than just taking a test drive. But as they say there’s always a first time, purchasing Spark was my first time and now I am sure that I won’t end up making the same mistakes that I did while purchasing this hatchback.
