Im looking to buy a compact Automatic Transmission car . What are my options as to price / make / safety ? If necessary I can wait another 6 months if some new models are in the offing and worth it.Im also open to buying a second hand car but Im sure if AT cars on resale are a good option considering that they need to be handled with care.

You can try AT cars Santro,Wagon R, Honda etc.
price is bit higher then manual transmission, but cars are safe,usually AT is handled with care only try to buy it from direct client to avoid kilometer tampering by brokers,kilometer plays a major role in AT cars.

Santro has AT car. CHeck with the Dealer.
It is better to buy new car AT,rather than second hand,as you may not know the genuiness of the speedometer/odometer and further how it is used.
Even second hand car from the Dealer can be purchased as they would check before delivery.I do not know whether Santro has Used Car warranty given like True Value of maruti.You can also check with True Value of Maruti for AT and go ahead.It will be costing around 25% more than manual transmission and your fuel average will be less as compared to manual transmission car of equal dimensions as there is lot of wastage of fuel while slipping as the drive is not positive like manual.Further you have to maintain the oil in the AT very carefully.

I have been using AT all my life. Rest assured once you go AT there's no looking back. I bought an AT Santro in India in September 2006 for my family and it has been outstanding. Try going for the latest Santro with the new 1.2 Engine as it comes with a refined AT, high spec fully loaded car. Good luck.
