I am planning to buy a Maruti Alto K10 LXi. the dealer explained to me that the car is fitted with full aluminium engine.. I want to know which other cars have full aluminium engine. if this is a new development why other car makers are not using full aluminium engine. what are the demerits/merrits. As aluminium is oxidisable easily what is the effect of oxidation in these type of engines. is it long lasting.
