  1. the punto is a good car. go for it.
  2. it is true that honda cars are good but do not offer value for money if the whole package is considered. it is upto the people to decide wisely where they want to put in their money. lets see for how long honda can ride their luck on their brand image.
  3. i test drove the jazz recently. the only good thing is the space. even though the power is 90ps, the car seems to be underpowered as max. power is reached at 6200 rpm.and most of us won't even rev up there even on idle. with the ac on, the car was extremely sluggish and needed revving up to pick up speed.i still don't understand the pricing. this price would be justified if there were alloys,climate control, driver seat height adjuster etc. i think that the aura will die down after a few months and sales may see a dip later. any body who wants to put this much money on a car will want VFM, and not be satisfied just with the Honda brand image.
  4. i am new here and went through all the 8 pages in the topic comparing petrols with diesels.i am planning for a hatchback and have shortlisted swift, fiat punto and the jazz. my average running is 10000 km/yr which would suggest that diesel isn't an option. what i would like to know is that would a car with a modern diesel engine be costly to maintain(will it need servicing more often?) if it stands for days together in the garage and runs very little or is the high initial cost of purchase the only reason to opt for a petrol. the jazz active costs 7.75 lakhs and it seems that either honda is crazy or thinks that we are crazy to buy a car that costs so much but lacks many features. on the other hand fully loaded Punto costs 6.5 lakhs and seems a better option, albeit the fiat after sales service is a big question mark. also, swift zxi and vdi(abs) are similarly priced. which one should i opt for if i choose the swift.
