GM vehicles have under body protection. Rust coating should not be necessary at all unless you stay in the coastal areas where the climate is very humid. Also if roads are very poor and small stones may chip off the original protection then under body coat is fine. For most people it is not necessary at all. Regards.
Underbody coating is not necessary on most new mid range cars – as they already come with some sort of anti-rust treatment. If you want it done you can get it done at an expert garage or at the authorized service center. See the pros and cons of it: http://www.cartoq.com/do-you-really-need-underbody-coating-and-teflon-for-your-car/
Teflon coating is useful, but not necessary. It protects the paint from minor scratches and prevents fading. But the effects are not long-lasting. Here’s more on the pros and cons of teflon coating and underbody coating: http://www.cartoq.com/do-you-really-need-underbody-coating-and-teflon-for-your-car/
Lots of noise and hype regarding teflon. Think of it as a biannual rubbing+polishing pack with a validity of 2 or 3 years. The car develops a lot of minor and circular scratches over use and also because of umproper washing/dusting. It looses its new car look. If you opt for the pack, they will make you car look and shine like showroom fresh.…[Read more]
Haven’t seen the new U-Va from the inside that closely but from what I remember of the old Aveo there is a simple “SET” button right under the clock for adjusting time.
In sail UVA It is not located on the centre console or dash board. At least i haven’t seen the same. It might be located in the Sterio System I presume?. Somebody please let me know where is the Digital clock located in the Sail UVA and how to see the same and set the same.
In that case the time will be displayed on your MID, if you still can’t find it just check your Owner Manual. We’re getting the car for a review in a day or two will check and tell you if you haven’t found it by then
Considering all your inputs, the Sail U-Va should suit you better. Its really spacious at front and rear, the high driver seat gives better comfort and thigh support even for tall persons, large glass area aids in good visibility. It has got the best diesel engine of the three. Its better than Figo and Etios in most of the factors.
Etios is not worth for what you pay, Figo is underpowered and not that spacious compared to Sail and Etios. But Sail is the best overall package considering safety, space, price, quality, engine, performance, etc…
Here, Etios is the vehicle that suits your requirement. Its diesel engine will offer you max mileage and inside space and its a good overall package apart from looks.
Between these 3, the most suitable is the Sail. Its seats are set higher than the others. Headroom is better, and ride quality significantly so. Its diesel engine is also superior to Figo’s and Liva’s.
Though Sail is apt for you its the brand which kills this product…Try Ritz as well!
Sail it is. Test Drove it and returned in my colleague`s Liva and found former to be a better overall package.
punto and vista has the best legroom hav a look at them also..
i would suggest that you should wait before you invest 6-7 lacs on a product which just entered the market…let it be on indian roads for 6-8 months…this is what i would suggest rest if u have made up your mind then go for it…else try figo and then liva…i myself have figo which i bought this week and i chose it over polo…i my dad and my…[Read more]
Actually, factors like years of ownership and a cash down purchase/finance also come into play. 800-1000km is the transition zone. For anything in 4 figures per month, diesel is cheaper.
Most cars have low-cc diesel engines compared to the same model’s Petrol engine. ie. Beat has 1000cc diesel, 1200cc petrol engine. Actually, diesel variants are low on performance and high on mileage and maintenance cost. Better buy Petrol variant and then add CNG/LPG on it as per my opinion.
800 Kms is the cut off point. Go in for the diesel if you are driving more than this. You will definitely save a lot of money
At just 500km a month, it does not make much sense to opt for diesel. The Sail’s 1.2 petrol motor is shared with the Beat and is not a bad engine. City FE will be around 12-13kmpl, which is the norm with almost all premium petrol hatchbacks. The Sail is a capable performer in both city and highway conditions and has excellent ride quality. And if…[Read more]
agree wid Mr.Shreyans, go for petrol
in case my future running per month is about 1800 km (30 days), even then you suggest the same ?
500km to 1800km a month is a big big jump. If you foresee that in near future, you have to think diesel, or even CNG.
maintanance for chevy cars is a bit xpensive dan dat f maruti cars…. chey sail is a good buy cz its more spacious,offers decent perfrmance n mileage…..
This is the area where we call Sail UVA as a great package. Maintenance cost of UVA is nearly zero for next 3 years of purchase as Chevy is giving 3 years promise pack (includes consumable items such as brake oil, engine oil, etc.) and 5 years warranty on engine. You just have to fill the tank and enjoy driving for next 3 years.
Ritz will be a great choice as it is very practical car easy to maintain anf great to drive
See, if you are considering factors other than space , then Ritz is a more perfect car than SAIL. UVA will provide you with more space inside therefore it has more length and breadth.
How about MAINTENANCE of the chevrolet cars. Will it be too much or at par with the Maruti cars
1st tym in india, chevy offers 5 yrs warranty on engine plus chevy 3 yr promise….. i suggets u U-VA cz its more spacious n it too has a version of FIAT multijet in it…..
n d maintanace for chevy car is a bit expensive dan f marutis
Ritz hands down !
I will suggest u sail because its spacious, its fun to drive, and maintenance wise it will be not that much as chevy is offering 3 years maintenance free ownership. what else you want
Maruti offers cheapest maintenance till now. Chevy’s maintenance is a little bit expensive than that of Maruti, not too much.
Considering practical things, its the Sail since it is more substance than style. You can get the 3 year free maintenance package and just spend on diesel for three years, maintenance as well as consumables will be totally free. Ritz, I suspect that the 2012 makes will be running on synthetic oils, which puts the regular service costs to about 3x…[Read more]
For a run of under 30 km a day – the petrol makes sense, as the price difference of over a lakh will buy you fuel for at least 4 years. However, if you buy it on EMI, the diesel is the better choice, as it gives better fuel efficiency and also is better to drive, with better pick up.
If we take an average 800 km per mnth, than a Petrol car is suggested. UVa is a good car and comes with Chevy’s promise pack of 3 yrs and 5 yrs engine warranty which is a good deal if maintenance is considered.Moreover, it is spacious inside and offers a good boot too. Overall its a good car and the milage is around 14 kmpl in petrol version.
MY SECOND CHOICE IS RITZ VDI. nOW I AM CONFUSED BETWEEN THE TWO. PLS. SUGGEST ACCORDINGLY.
Between the two, again Sail UVA will provide you more space and comfort and the equipments level is also more in Sail as compared to Vdi variant Ritz. The power delivery and mileage is almost similar on both the diesel cars.
n em adding dat U-VA too has a version of FIAT multijet n its more spacious too….
