  1. what?? I am not getting this kind of discount. Can you please tell me a little more. which variant? Place? all colors or particular color? when did the dealer receive this car? Please help.
  2. Well, Wait a little more..i shall get the delivery this week.. I settled for light brown colour..i shall attach a pic i clicked at the dealership soon.
  3. My PDI is due tomorrow.. we have finalised the silver colour.. (Reason is that it is available this week, other colour available is oak brown) (other colours will take about 20 days to come, Cant wait!!) so what should I check for majorly in the Pdi? I want to spend good amount of time so please suggest.
  4. it a June 2012 made car (MY2012).. Tyres look new and car started properly so no battery issues i guess. What else should I check.?
  5. Hey, yes, we are looking for a lighter shade only. About buying the base model.. See, the mid model is not available at all, its probabaly discontinued.. So its either highline or trendline. Buy a bmw or Audi instead of a highline as highline price is high in the holy trio range. So basically we we are left with trendline.. My brother cannot invest much. Passat has amazing performance. I dont know.. I am convinced.. thanks
  6. Hey, Will keep that in mind.. also, dealer is not offering any extended warranty.. only the basic 2 year warranty is on offer. Also about maintenance package, I will have to enquire.. I think it wont be very beneficial.. Can you give me a cost analysis on how it can benefit us. Cheers.
  7. Oak brown looked exotic at first but its definitely not the best as we discovered. It looks good in dark but not in sun. For me WHite : Looks elegant Light brown: Royal but OLD man type Silver: Elegant and royal but too common.. (Same tone of silver is offered in polo and vento) Current priority: Light brown > Silver > White > Oak Brown What colour do think will look the youngest? I mean the car will be driven by a 25 year old.
  8. Thanks, will test drive the car again on a warm day and see..
  9. When I first read the tiltle, i thought someone has made a movie on car interiors, Anyway, Also you some disinfectant for sure.. fungal contact (Even after wipe) can cause skin infections.. Such cars are also not suitable for small kids. So Disinfect before you uses it.
  10. Thanks everyone.. This time its final. Passat it is. Thanks for all the feed back. MUCH APPRECIATED. Car comes home next week. Actually it is already ready for delivery.. we chose a date for next week. Color options given to us are White, Light brown, Reflex silver, Oak Brown.. We are having a hard time choosing one. any suggestions. Thanks everyone.
  11. Hehe, I know I have built that kind of reputation. This is as far as it goes. I like passat a lot more than superb. Outright space was never our criteria. We just wanted a better car. I guess passat does that. I dont know? You tell me. So what are the problems you have heard of? Are they very frequent? Thanks
  12. Another thing i want to share. When i wanted to book my A class, It was pitted against the passat.. I loved the passat. But wished I could have both. Now for my brother, again its the passat. SO wish has come true almost. I might have both cars of the confusion is sorted. Although they will be in two different houses so no option of choosing rides I am not complaining.
  13. Hi friends, An important update I have successfully convinced my family for the Passat. HAHAHA Yes, after a few negotiations with the dealer, i got a price that is few lacs above the cruze A/T So, BOOKED THE PASSAT TRENDLINE, and i feel its an incredible car. specs- 170 HP diesel, 6 speed MANUAL. A joy to drive and the trendline also feels so luxurious, it misses out on a lot of gizmos but what you get a nice fuel efficient truly luxury car. So BOOKING is done. Delivery next week. Colour OAK Brown. I am so happy to report this. I just have one concern that I came across is that The A/C is not very effective and dosen't cool the cabin very well. Chances of the compressor wearing out. ?? Is like the Laura A/C in 2008 that refused to cool. During the test drive, it was cool outside so couldn't check it. If someone can help me on this, it would be great. Thanks..
  14. HAHA, Thanks everyone.. I like lighter shades in cars, mostly its gonna be summit white, but we might go for silver as well. (I know I know, BORING COLORS.. ) Anyway, this kept aside.. If anyone remembers my mercedes A class story, How I felt for the passat when I went to see the jetta.. same happened again with me and family, we were there for the jetta and the same passat was still parked there, in all its glory. Passat is such a lovely car. It feels so luxurious, I mean mercedes E class luxurious. My brother also liked it. anyway I am trying to convince him for this. for this very reason he has stopped talking to me, he says if he listens to me, he shall go bankrupt. anyway, ITS THE CRUZE THAT IS FINAL.. the Dealer is an acquaintance so we have asked him that whatever cruze color is delivered to him in a lighter shade, we shall pick it up.. SO its CRUZE LTZ A/T I CHOSE TO CRUZE
  15. Thanks everyone.. We will book the car this week. I shall update this post with more details soon.
