  1. hey there dude.... the RE T-bird wld cost you a 1.05 Lacs... and the avenger has just recently come out wid a 200cc engine..... (check the autocarindia mag of this month) the price of the avenger shld be close to Rs 75000 to 80000... If u like to go on long drives then the T-Bird is the best... Hey by the way wait don't buy a T-bird now... Bcoz early 08 the T-bird is coming wid a Twin Spark Plug pumping in additional BHP's. So i guess it is better for u to wait for tht...
  2. There is no logic of the car getting old..... i have noticed in many other cars even the swift.....the braking efficiency reduces with the use of a/c... but the question is why does this happen???
  3. Sorry... i meant any ideas why this happens???
  4. Hey guyz i m back again wid my set of Questions 1) When i turn on my zen's air conditiong while driving i find that their is a significant difference in braking in terms of reduction in braking and when the a/c is switched off then the braking comes back to its normalcy .. why only the zen even the indigo and the indica, palio 1.9, elantra etc we had earlier i noticed the same..... Any suggesstions????
  5. i wld suggest give a test drive for the i10.... incase ur looking out for space and comfort and reliability.. the Wagon R is good. Palio 1.1 is also a good choice... has good comfort and space, but is underpowered due to its heavy metal.... Overall WagonR seems to be a good choice here!!! Cheers!!
  6. Passion boy... thanks for tht interesting article.... Infact yes as the article states the demand for the lower end b segment used cars will come down as the low cost cars will be preferred... So it's going to take time.....Wld be interesting to watch!! But yes the 2nd hand used car market after 2009 will definately fall for b segment cars...
  7. Guys i never liked the Amby for the first place coz its not much comfortable driving... but love sitting at the rear coz of its Sofa kind of feel.. But i think to sum it up we all have kind of enjoyed the ride on the Amby's.... If you ask abt my sentiments... i wld love to have a VW Bettle or a Austin 8... And Bravo to all the members for their contributions... Really this was one interesting topic!! Thanks so much
  8. I dunno y but i can never ever trust the Mahindra's...... Renau on the other side is good.... So my conclusion is like this.... Incase u wanna have Chinese... then have the authentic one...Just like the Honda.... Dont have the Indianised Chinese... Tht;s Mahindra Renau.....
  9. few more brand ambassdors for other cars.... Abhishek B - Ford Fiesta Rani and Saif - Chevy Aveo / U-VA
  10. Between what u have as your points to consider in tht budget the Swift LXi is a good buy coz it comes with lot of goodies... its a sporty hatch and will def have a better resale value plus Maruti's tag on it will give u tht money..... So wht r u waiting for??? Go Right Ahead and Book One Now.... and Plz upload the Pic for all of us to enjoy!!!
  11. SX4's Fuel Efficiency is good in the city u can extract abt 12 KMPL and in the Highway 16-17 KMPL But then again the figures cld be + 0r - depending upon how you drive!!

My dad is planning to buy a car...his budget is fixed at Rs 7 - 7.5 Lacs on road... his points to consider... good ground clearance, easy driving, power, mileage, maintainence, resale... after considering these criteria's i suggested the Suzuki SX4 to him...
