ok guys i need a suggestion… i have been told to take the car for a long drive on the open highways so as to open the car engine once i get the number… my car has run less than 100 kms yet.. what should i be doing?? should i go out & free it on highways ?? if so then any restrictions as regards speed or other parameters to maintain ??
BS, These engines are always run in, but it is always better to cruise at sensible speed for a few hundred km, does not mean slow or something, just sensible, cruise at sensible speeds, don’t race around for the first 500 km atleast, cruising is ok, no un-necessary revving, for that you have all the time in the world ,LATER.This is generally for…[Read more]
Yes cruise with a stable stable speed like 70-80,and avoid revving your engine
im hapy or the purchase… but verrrry sad with the dealer experience.. NEVER BUY FROM FORTUNE MOTORS Andheri East..!!
You are sure you don’t want to go for the Innova? It is clearly a reliable vehicle. No style, though! XUV500 low end would be a good option – you get the looks and the engine, though not all the features. Force One – No! Let them at least bring it to the showrooms first. Build Quality and reliability is an unknown for it. Great engine though.
An Innova wont fit , as off-road drive is essential Gr8 confusion between SUV 5OO and Arai :/
xuv 500 will come next year only as mahindra stopped bookings….
Nishat , i have the booking of XUV , but confused vik – havent heard about it
Vik Prabhakar – the Yeti will come with a smaller PETROL & DIESEL engine http://www.cartoq.com/skoda-yeti-with-two-new-engines/
Till Dec end i dont think you can get XUV because the bookings have been stopped temporarily,so look for other options like Aria,Scorpio VLX 4WD,Innova Crysta Aria and all
Vishwas – i hav the booking of XUV 500 :/
babychen its been in showrooms since 3 weeks
want to seek feedback from Force One owners on all aspects, it’s been 5 months since the vehicle launch ?
go for the verna wont go wrong with it…avoid volswagen higher maintainance costs
What is your priority?
ford fiesta classic or i20
How is i20 as a car??
these r the options under 7.5 lakhs – 1) polo tdi – excellent ride-handling. spacious. classy. very good engine, but lacks features. and less service stations 2) i20 – spacious, big car feel, features, good engine + power. but lacks handling and high speed stability. ride quality is good but not as good as say polo or punto. 3) fabia – same as…[Read more]
yu should go fr i20 diesel asta or sportz mdl definately
I would say Punto 1.3 and ose over Swift if you are seeking performance.But if you need a lot of features and with same swift engine Indica Vista is good
I would shortlist – POLO – VW badge, great handling and control, better fit n finish of interiors, almost rattle-free.Fabia – luxurious and spacious feeling inside the car, great handling.Punto (90 HP) – Nice performer.
go for volkswagen polo aur skoda fabia.and tata manza polo gives in 1200cc with 75 bhp power.mileage is near about 17kmpltr.same engine features is in skoda fabia. but if we talk about tata manza that gives in 1248 cc 90 bhp power.n mileage is much impressive.according to me u should go for volkswagen polo tdi
Thx guys…. 4 ol ur sgstns
its amazing people still buying petrol…..just wanna say hathi kharid to lenge par paalege kaise??
go for diesel it wont recover in 3 yrs bt may b in 5 yrs but nobody knows petrol may b 100/lit after few months…..of if u can adjust with cng then its another option.
go for ritz diesel..have good mileage n good performance
Out of these swift is the leader but my pick out of this is punto. Its a great handler and a head turner on road for sure with adequate power and features…
vikas i think diesel car is 1 lac higher priced, i can use that money to drive petrol atleast for 3 years as my daily running is not much, correct me if i am wrong. please help me choosing car considering all aspects.
Well you say you wont drive your car more than 50kms a day and your budget is well given.At 5.5 lakhs on-road you will get I10 sports model,and the petrol engine is refined as well.The maintenance is a bit higher than that of maruti but its manageable.Else if you need a great petrol motor will aggressive looks then have a look the Brio which is…[Read more]
Go for diesel….
u can buy nissan sunny
?@vishwas i’ll definatly think on brio, thanks for info. @upendra well lower model showroom price is 5.80, it wont fit in my budget for on road price.
i’ll go for diesel its better to give money once n njoy. giving 500-1000 everyday or in 2 days is painful . now adays diesel technology is competing petrol no doubt .cars like bmw n skoda cums in diesel no 1 can say diesel have low pick up or sumthng…….i’ll alwys go fr diesel
as per ur requirement i think u shud go for SWIFT. as its looks good, the engine is also frugal, has low maintenance cost its A.S.S. is also good. Also look for i20.only its draw back is its less frugal.but a safe &sturdy car.
?@vikas well can you give me some diesel cars which fits in my budget
@yogesh ty mate.
Indica eV2 top model? what about this car?
first think of buying some petrol .. then we can think of buying a car
There’s nothing worng in going for Indica eV2 if you are not concerned of its’TAXI’ where many of them consider as one.Well why do taxi market owns this car? because its fuel efficient and VFM.So the features are good in the LX trim,but the rear power windows are missing.But you get a good music system with alloy wheels and the seats are very…[Read more]
abey tel mai bhajiyaa talega kya
gareeb log ….
thanks vishwas, keeping eV2 as an optional.. what all other diesel cars will fit in my budget Indigo eCS/CS?
?Kumar Bhawar …. maruti alto le le …
ya fir Tata Nano
kya time pass kar raha hai Pravin Sivan
life hi time pass hai mere bhaii … opinions bahut honge … but ek cheez bolta hoon … visit 5 to 10 showrooms of different brans
then sit at home n do a swat analysis .. then Buy
In which city do you reside?
yes Pravin Sivan nice idea. ty… if i get little idea which cars are better with all aspects, it will be easier to decide after showroom visit.
u cav also go for Ford Figo…
diesel car – nt ev2 its nt upmarket bt vista is a great one.u will get the base model in less than 5 50 i guess.base model have atleast ac power steering etc. but if u can manage around 6 then u can get vista vx loaded wid feautes n also has abs.
u hav to adjust sumwhere vista offers d most space even most of d sedan dont have such xcept of tata’s. if u want space then vista is great bt tata service is nt vry gud.. swift is also an option bt has less space n waitng tym bt service is gud
space wise figo is gud bt i alwys read mixed reviews about it awsum car,bad car no one says nrml car
?@vikas thanks for info, visited tata showroom (padit auto) yesterday, i am 6.3 feet tall and vista car roof was just touching head, was not feeling comfortable.. after asking sales executive he said only top end models have driver seat height adjustment. i liked the car but height seems be an issue.
so which 1 u decide
today visited 2 showrroms ford(figo), hyundai(i20)…. i20 is spacious but seems overpriced and not much pickup. figo looks just ok car but waiting period for both car is more than 1 month. (they have lots of booking pending for diwali)
visiting maruti today evening for swift and ritz… btw tata guys just called and are ready to give ev2 lx immediately.
i guess swift would be the right option..considering your daily run and the budget, u shud b prety o rather mre hapier with its perfomance n quality..morova it has excellent afta sale service n is also high on resale lookin at its demand..also has a good design n mileage,, o if can wait for decmber for new swift desire compact wich would hardly…[Read more]
thanks @rajneesh, vikas, rajat, vishwas, pravin, apurba, upendra, yogesh & sonia for suggestions and helping me choose car. maruti test drive for both cars was nice. ritz seems just ok to me, nice height and space in car..body shape not so impressive and looks more compact. swift drive feel was impressive, suspension and pickup was…[Read more]
should i stretch budget and get zdi with all features or vdi without abs is ok? is it worth paying 80000 extra for those features?
i think its of no use 2 pay dat extra amount..n ma frnd u made a rite choice on swift..grt car with grtst of the perfrmanc in d segment..n considering ur run, petrol wud b js fin….as also to knowledge u mre,looking at d downfall of petrol variants, government is tryin 2 get d diff betwn petrol n diesel closer fr atlst the private vehicles if not…[Read more]
yes, except India all other countries are charging diesel with just 5-10% difference(even in pakistan its 94rs petrol – 79 rs diesel). well there is no guarantee of petrol either.. from last june 2010 our so called govt. has increased almost 19rs. (rs. 56 to 75), it may reach up to 100 till 2012 year end. where as to reach 80 rs mark diesel will…[Read more]
?@rajneesh i might not sell this car even after 5 years, first 3 years i will be happy to go with petrol considering 1 lac rs saving, but what after that? after discussing with friend who’ having honda city, it was shocking to know that his current expenditure just for petrol is not so affordable for his daily running of 60km; and this might be my…[Read more]
ohk..may b u hav jorted down all stats and r ready to go with diesel..nwys congo fr the new car..hope u hav smooth n grt tim!!
yes mate, thanks for your help……….thanks everyone.
i20 ‘d b best
cng increased 2 rs petrol car k other fuel option bh govt mhnge kr rhi h. ab to bhaiya diesel hi dubte ko sahara h.although it may also rise bt if its rising 2rs then petrol by 3rs ……bye bye petrol.its getting difficult to ride my bike frget about cars
Just keep two options Toyota Liva and i10 1.2 kappa engine.
swift is also a good option but price is very high for swift .
i20 spertz after disounts costs exact 5.50 lakhs on road
New Swift is gr8 go for it..
Go for Skoda Fabia Active plus or Liva G variant!!!!!!
among these cars, the swift makes the best choice. consider the brio as well or even the jazz if you can stretch a bit
I like Grande Punto but Swift and Hyundai i20 are safer options. i20 has more space so if you frequently lug 5 people, its a better option. Also the ride is quite comfy though handling is so so. If you want great handling and slightly less space is not a problem, then there is nothing to beat Swift.
why BEAT diesel is not considered so far ?
better go with chevrolet beat diesel
Why don’t you got a 3/4 years old Honda City, Maruti SX4 or Honda Civic. One of my friends recently bought a 4 year old (but very good, almost new like condition) Honda Civic only for 5.25 Lakhs.
ford figo,,ritz..diesel could be an option
I want to buy a new car and i have shortlisted toyota liva G,nissan Micra XE and Hyundai I10 magna.Guys kindly advice me with ref. to Performance,Comfort,maintainance cost etc….
Kumar Bhawarji petrol car within budget of 5.5 lac is i think Maruti Swift LXI 1.2 L, 1197 cc K series engine (5.38 IN DELHI) on road price & Mileage is City 15.7 & Highway 18.1 with good turning radius for city rid i think this is economic car 4 u. looking for a safe, comfortable and good looking car go with PUNTO 1.2 active fire engine (5.70…[Read more]

hey Kumar, hi, well the options u have selected, i guess all the cars go above 6.5lak, atleast in mumbai, i dont knw where u r?? but if u love driving then go for Punto, if u want comfortable and economical drive then go for swift and if u want STYLE then go for i20, but if u want low maintenece its nuthin like that these days that diesel engines…[Read more]
from the three that you have mentioned , all of these are comfy in the front seats while the punto and the i20 have a bit more comfort in the rear seats. for reliability nothing beats the swift(both svc in numbers and technically) !! though all three of them are on par with each other. looks are totally subjective to personal…[Read more]
hi kumar you should go for new i-gen i20.http://goo.gl/g5RjJ Hyundai igen i20 Mileage of 11kmpl – 15 kmpl while the 1.4 L Kappa engine returns fuel efficiency of 15-17 kmpl and diesel i20 offers mileage of 18 kmpl -23 kmpl and u will miss few feature in swift like Fully Automatic Temperature Control, Clean Air-Cluster ionizer for fresh air,…[Read more]
