Folks, I am going for the top end petrol variant for Toyota Etios and have lot of questions. 1. There is a price difference of 1.2L between petrol and diesel variants. Is it worth sticking to petrol? How is the mileage for new etios in city limits. 2. Which is the best tyre for this car, mileage and balance being priority. Is factory tyres good enough? 3. How widely available are accessories like side skirts, front full chrome grill available outside of Toyota's service centers 4. please suggest a great audio setup (20k budget ). I am more of an unmodified neutral sounding audiohead than a basshead. 5. Is Nandi Toyota good (Bangalore, Hosur Road) Thanks in advance.
Exterior I've done a sticker job, good style. Everyone admired it. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) New convention on dashboard style, again got admiration. Huge leg space on the front & back considering a hatch. Good boot space. Only problem is dust gathered in between door panels as no weather gasket on doors. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Smooth riding till 115-120 kph, after that you need to push hard and the engine is not responsive. Long 2nd & 3rd gear, got admiration again. Nice pickup, even better than few petrol cars with full load. Superb AC. Gearbox is damn good, got admiration again, very smooth and it feels like my European Vauxhall Astra. I liked it. Mileage is around 16 KMPL average with 100% AC on. Ride Quality & Handling I specially like its ride quality, The suspension is very well tuned and very absorbing in nature. I hardly care small ptoholes on the road. I drive myself and handling was never been so good. My friend bought a Swift same time, we exchange our cars some times, but I feel better in handling this Toyota. Steering feedback is awesome and very well controlled, nicely weighted. Ass Horrible, Horrible, Horrible...!! Other than the selling agent no one (servicing or body & paints) has addressed by needs accurately. They tend to ignore us and I felt myself as cheaper customer and as if I'm begging for there service. Once for a minor damage it took 16 days to repair, minor crash on hatch. Once it took more than a month to repair just a front fender and bumper (replaced it though) and after that delivered me the car without stepney which was damaged by accident. And during my second free service it took more than a week to get my car. So out of 8 months it was in the service centre for around 2 months.. Final Words I think Toyota doesn't have adequate facility to please a volume people of Liva and Etios. And every time I go there I felt as a cheap buyer, they used to ignore me always. So I would not recommend it if ASS is a concern. Areas of improvement AFTER SALE SERVICE, Better facility and timely response.
