  1. lovemycar, well petrol dzire is a good car from maruti but it does lack on highways with lesser FE, else is a good package in that price bracket.Around 50km per day can also justify diesel option for you which DDiS from maruti in dzire and swift are superb to run and own,good FE and doesnot make one's ownership bad with latest diesel engine.CHEERS!!

  3. FRG, fortunate enough and phew what an experience you had. Really this one does  help out others too while driving out. Does remember one incident i had while going to drop some family members at airport at 4.30am with hardly slept by last few days with wedding in family and while in between my journey towards airport i could see my eyes getting closed, with a truck getting passed by me is a flash which opened my eyes, whoa just got my car parked left side of the road, asked a cousin to get on the wheels and let myself on the rear seat, but yes definately worth learning from your experience frg, fatigue kills.
