    Please do not use the bottle jack, I personally have a bad experience with it.

    Hydraulic jacks are easy and safe to use provided you do check them before using

    1. Raise the jack and try pushing with your hand. If they go down then they are not to be used
    2. Keep a tab on the Hydraulic oil. In most cases the level of oil is the culprit and hence they are useless.
    3. Keep the jack clean and away from water.
    4. Do not use the jack more than the rated capacity. It is safe to get a jack with higher capacity than what you may need.

    I have been using the jack from my Santro days and have found it useful.

    Thanks Folks for your views. Seems pretty clear that the winner is the regular jack that came with the car kit.... cheers.

    Not really the the non bottle type hydraulic jack lifts up the car at least 50% faster than the stock jack,and is very convenient to use.

    Some quick update. After wheel balancing, I drove above 80KM. Did not find any vibrations. Will observe for few more days. Thanks all for your advice
