  1. Hey everyone ? I would like your advise on buying a used 2012 model Mercedes Benz C200 CGI Petrol, 65000 KM vehicle. What are the common and rare issues with this vehicle. What checks ? should I do before buying the car. I'm from Kerala and the vehicle is in Delhi, any tips appreciated. Thank you!
  2. Hi all, I have covered almost 1000 kilometres in my trip on the last 4 days. The trip went like this - Kottayam > Calicut > Wayanad > Ooty> Coimbatore > Palakkad > Kottayam. It was a fun trip but I broke the rear tail-light while reversing. It hit a dumpster and I hope to rectify it soon. The pictures will be up soon.
  3. That is definitely good news and I can see that you are very happy with your new car. Also, could you please rate the refinement with that of any other suitable(popular) car - just for a comparison.
  4. @unknownbullet - You can opt out Beat and Ritz out of your choice. The MS Swift and the Ford Figo (diesel) might be your final shortlisted cars. Do take a testdrive of any other car, if you want to be 100% sure, which car suits you the best.
  5. Sorry , the price was meant to be 29 lakhs on - road for the V6 variant of the Skoda Superb. The VW Passat will definitely introduce a petrol and V6 models within a period of 1 year (max.) but till then their lineup is incomplete.
  6. Dear Sumit, Yes, the Superb is a nice car with more space. Also, the lineup is complete with a 1.8 TSI petrol motor available both as a 6spd manual or 7 spd DSG automatic. The Superb also has a 3.6 V6 engine variant with Haldex 4-wheel drive system and wider sportier tyres at 39 lakjs(on-road) price . So, the final decision has to be made by the buyer according to his/her preference.
  7. Hi bikerboy, In the SUV's you have listed , I would suggest the Honda CRV for it s reliability, space,comfort ,refinement and good A.S.S.
  8. In the sedans, you've listed , I would go in for the Honda City with no doubts. It has been the segment leader til last month. It has a very powerful petrol motor that can hurtle you towards the 100 kmph mark in just 10 seconds. It has the legendary Honda reliability and maintenance. It also has a good mileage figure. This is your best bet(as of now) if the sedan has to be a petrol one. I would also suggest that you consider the VW Vento diesel- The current segment leader - it has a superb torque and power figure and it has proven that it has the capability to dethrone the segment leader - Honda city.
  9. In the hatchbacks listed by you , I would definitely say you go for the Ford Figo. I 've also heard of those"scare" stories about this car, but all I can say i sthat I've had had no bad experience from some of the people i Know. My friends and one of my cousin drives a Ford Figo without any hitches. The pros for this car is the good mileage for the diesel, pretty frugal one with almost no turbo lag , has good space and the boot space is amazing for a hatch. The A/C is a chiller and the feature list is also impressive. On the safety front it does the dual airbags and ABS. And above all, it has a killer price tag.This a is a very good car for your money and I am sure that you will be happy with this car.About the maintenance and parts costs , I think Ford is really trying their best to source parts from India so as to reduce the service and maintenance costs.
  10. Dear Visanj , I think you should also look at the ergonomics of the car more closely as this is also a factor that determines how effortlessly you can drive a car. Yes, a good suspension setup is necessary but without ergonomics - all that features and suspension are nothing. This (ergonomic) factor depends on each individual's own "taste" and you should take a test drive of all the shortlisted cars before taking the final decision. When both the ride and ergonomic factors are taken into consideration , I would suggest you take a closer look at the VW Polo and the Skoda Fabia. The VW Polo will offer you a more stiff and sporty ride while the Skoda Fabia will give you more space, softer suspension setup and a well - engineered car. Both these cars are well- engineered and suits you perfectly.
  11. Congrats on your new car. It is a highly accomplished car with good space and a great mileage with the superb Maruti A.S.S. Also, what are your mileage figures and how would you rate the petrol version with the diesel one in terms of driving pleasure ,refinement, maintenance and other costs and the lesser features. It is a great car at this price tag and wish you happy and joyful motoring.
  12. Yes, it is a Maruti Suzuki Swift with the K-series engine if you are looking at a petrol hatch. If it has to be a diesel, then its the Ford Figo without any doubt. It has nice features, space, big boot space and a killer price tag which makes it a VFM car .
  13. That is amazing news, but does it spoil the "feel" of that car. If that is the case I don't think it worth to do a mod on such a pricy car
  14. Congrats nfs123 on your newly acquired beauty. The Cruze is the game-changer for GM in India and a very good car. Even, I had also considered this car during my buying process and it does have the Stunning looks and features. It is a very good car for the money and wish you happy motoring always. P.S- Do post some pics of the car. It is just stunning to say the least
  15. HI Sumit, No, the Indian version of the Skoda Superb does not have the auto-park assist feature and neither does it have as many features as in the BlueMotion Passat. Between the two cars, I would have to admit that the new Passat seems to be a better car in terms of overall quality , fit&finish, features and the brilliant 170 bhp TDI engine with the 6 spd DSG autobox. It will give you better mileage and moreover its more competitively priced than the older Passat which makes it a better car in this comparison. Although, the New Passat seems to be the better car here, I recommend you to take a test-drive of both the cars before making any final decisions. Hope this info have been useful and I will be happy to clear any other doubts.
