Is it worth buying a new car for me? I have a car since 2010 showing 18,000 km on the meter. I am not a regular driver either. I have a Chevrolet UVA, and the company has already withdrawn from India? What should I do?

You have a Chevrolet UVA since 2010. This means its already 8 years old and from your meter reading, it is clear that your average running is 2k-2.5k kilometers every year.

My suggestion to you is that, if you don’t have any financial issues you should exchange it as the company has already withdrawn from India. And if you are not in a mood to sell the car or having any financial problem, then make sure that you get your car serviced every year. There may be situations after some time you may not get proper servicing. So, exchange it at a time when you are financially strong.

Now, if you are opting for a new car, go for a hatchback with automatic gear transmission so that you don’t face any problem driving occasionally. Some best hatchbacks are MS Swift, MS Baleno, VW Polo.

Hope this helps.

I would recommend you to switch to some new car. Might be some hatchback in the same price range.

Reasons for change:

Every item has some ageing.

Once engine starts running, it require proper maintenance year on year. Even if you have got your car serviced every year then only I will recommend you to keep the car for 1–2 years more.

If you are an auto enthusiast then only I will recommend you to continue with the car for 15 years. Else if someone doesn't want to spend time in repairs also a lot of then 7 years is good time to keep the car.

Take trials of new cars, Baleno, i20, Swift, i10 and then feel the difference yourself.

If you don't have money then be ready to find some cheap mechanics and start going to spare parts market.

Additional important information:

It's really not that difficult to keep your car in good shape. Here are the basics:
- Keep all the fluids (e.g. engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant, etc.) clean and topped up.
- Follow your maintenance schedule, there is a number of things that need to be regularly serviced or replaced at certain intervals (e.g. brakes, air filter, timing belt, spark plugs, etc.)
- Check tire pressure regularly.
- Change you windshield wipers if they don't clean properly.
- Wash and wax your vehicle once in a while to keep the car finish shiny and protected from corrosion.
- Deal with problems as soon as they arise, before they become more serious and require expensive repairs.
- Use only original or good-quality parts.
- At least once a year have your car check out in a garage.
- Read your car owner's manual, it has all the information on car maintenance as well as safety precautions.

Have owned a UVA for 5 years before I sold it. It clocked decent 70k Km and gave good performance.

You don’t need to sell the vehicle for atleast a year. Parts are to supplied by Chevrolet for 15 yrs post last vehicle sold date. Though there is no bar on pricing and outlets for sale.

There can be some difficulty in procuring some parts in next couple of years but no issue otherwise.

Keep it serviced at regular intervals and don’t bang it.

Happy and safe driving.

No keep this UVA being a Chevy this car was pitty durable plus 18k is quite less for your UVA to detoriate, your car run is too less for you to consider buying a car and keep paying it's expenses but not driving it. Luxury ola and uber are better solution if you need lux drive or hire zoomcar for long trips it will save you money and your funds will not be stuck with a new car just to park.

2 months back i bought a used 2013 Chevrolet enjoy diesel and still i found spares available in the market. I changed my clutch assembly, brake pads, brake rotors, brake cylinder etc. So as far as your UVA is concerned which has clocked only 18000 kms there is no point of selling it. It can easily serve you for some more years. Even if you sell this car u will not get the desired resale value. So, my suggestion for u is don’t sell ur car until it is not giving u problem in maintaining it.

Exchange it for another car, if after-sales services are becoming a bother. Better yet, get a second-hand car, if your usage is not high.
