  1. hi all.. my brother is planning to buy a car and his budget is around 5-6 lakhs and he wants a sedan.. he likes aveo and accent both but he is more inclined to accent because of gms bad reputation and the problems they are having but he finds aveo better..

    accent is costing him around 5.40 L and the Aveo is costing him aroung 5.6 L on road.. so which one should he go for.. he doesnt like desire, ikon, logan and he doesnt want a small car..

    what is the future of accent? what is the future of gm?

    please advice.

    thank you.


  2. it will be launched this month and it will have 2 engines.. 1.6 petrol and 1.9 diesel and it will be priced around 13-16 lakhs and in my opinion at this price it is overpriced just like laura though they are both good cars..


  3. i like skoda company but the way they think they are as good as a bmw or mercedes it is quite funny  because they are simply not that good.. i am a fan of german cars and solid build quality and skoda is a very good co.. i mite go for fabia but as if now i think it is better to wait for the new city.. my other option is aveo so can some1 tell me the mileage of both 1.4 and 1.6..


  4. hi.. if i buy fabia it will be diesel and not petrol.. i am thinking of aveo but what is the mileage of aveo 1.6 as i want airbags and abs in my car.. i live in delhi and i dont know about the delivery but i have heard the mileage of fabia diesel is pretty good but engine isnt that fast or refined.. i went to moti nagar silvertone showroom.. any news on the new honda city and when it is going to be launched.. i guess the only way skoda will learn is when another german brand comes to india and give it competition and thats y i think gm did a big mistake of stopping the opel brand in india..


  5. hi everybody.. i am interested in buying a skoda fabia and its been 2 months and they still havnt called me for a test drive but they keep calling me & asking when i am booking the car and i keep replying them with the same answer i cant buy a car without test driving it.. the car was launched in jan and they still dont have a car for a test drive and they behave as if i am the only 1 who is interested in the car they are so arrogant and rude.. so now my interest again is going towards chevy aveo the car i simply love but i didnt buy it coz i bought a civiv in feb so now i have a chance to buy it.. what say people should i go for the chevy aveo or wait for the test drive of skoda fabia which i dont know when i will get..

  6. if you are satisfied with the gm service y dont you go for aveo.. its a good value for money car.. and you can get the top model for 7.5lakhs with airbags and abs.. the performance is good and features are also good.. it is quite spacious and ride quality is one of the best.. quality is very good but its brand value is not as good as honda.. maintenance is low and mileage is good..  resale will be little low.. i think you should either go for honda city or chevrolet aveo.. they both are good cars with honda having a little advantage because of the resale and brand value..


  7. hi rakesh.. about the safety issue it performed good in the nhtsa crash test but it performed badly in euro ncap crash test so it is difficult to say whether its a safe car or no and even if it is unsafe it doesnt make other cars more safe.. the honda city and corrolla has a very light body still they sell like anythg and i find both the cars unsafe.. and about the gearbox it is better now though not as slick as honda citys.. as fas as i know it wont give you more than 12 in the city and 15 on the highway.. if the aftersales service in your city is good and you are sure that you wont have problem with availbility of parts you can go ahead and buy aveo its a vfm car and its as good as verna, sx4, fiesta and city.. jus remember aveo will have a very bad resale and if you planning to keep it for more than 4 yrs then it shouldnt bother you.. verna, sx4 and city will have better resale than aveo and fiesta..  and i myself really like aveo.. hope this helps. 


  8. hi.. since you live in a small city please check the aftersales service and parts availbility of Gm cars as it can pose a big problem for you in the future.. hyundai and maruti has better aftersales service and parts are never a problem with them.. i like the aveo also out of verna and sx4 but before buying just remember it wont give you a good resale no matter what the dealer says.. gm and ford cars dont have good resale.. verna and sx4 both are good cars.. if aftersales service and parts availbilty is not a problem then i think you should go aveo since you like it soo much and its a very good car.. but if you love driving then take a test drive of fiesta i am sure you will love it but check there aftersales support and parts availbility also as ford service doesnt have a good reputation and there parts are generally very expensive.. you can also consider skoda fabia as it has good interiors, solid build, good fe, nice ride & handling but engine isnt that good and its overpriced and aftersales service is not the best and parts are expensive.. hope this helps.


  9. i think you should go for civic its the best car in the budget of 12 lakhs.. i am a owner of civic and you are right that the seats are low but every car has negative and positive so you should go for civic.. honda city vtec with abs and airbags is also a good option.. you can consider chevrolet aveo also its a very good car.. then optra magnum diesel is also a very good car and if you dont like civic you should seriouly consider it.. if you really want a car with good resale value then but the honda city it has the best resale.. according to me resale isnt that important and what is more important is which car you like..buy that.
