My wife is from Puna and I know how traffic is in India. About purchasing a car to use as you have described, I wouldn't. For your driving, a car will stand idle for much of the time and will be driven only three miles on Sunday. That type of use is really bad for a car, and for your finances. Compare car ownership: it's cost, storage, maintenance, insurance. I think you'll find that taxis would be MUCH cheaper. Or hire a car for Sundays, then you'll get a driver too. Or call a car rental company and they'll rent you a car for the day and even deliver the car to you on Sunday morning, allowing you to experience a different car each week. Or, and this would be my preference, walk; it's only five klicks.
