Agreed Ajay, thats why with all patience I waited for more than 4 months to see multiple problems are addressed by MUL, only on going issue right now is to get my gateway magazine 4 issues I guess which they said when I baught car I will get it and I remember i had filled the form for that I am not bothered about minor issues as long as they are addressed, MUL service is best, Hyundai comes close since these two brands sell lot of cars in India, for mechanic experience matters a lot, thats why its always great to shop MUL or HMIL cars if we need A.S.S

Even is there is problem we get solution sooner or later. Of course other brands are also good it all depends on which dealer we choose and which technician service our car.

Ravi.

If you looking for Driving pleasure and Value for Money, then no car can beat Fiat Palio 1.2 / 1.6.
Test drive it and you would believe it!!!

Just realized that you have decided on Swift, however if you have not yet booked the same, you should consider Palio.

Palio is a great car ofcourse, but some members have reported very high maintenance costs on it. That reason doesnt make it a great VFM. Yes, among the hatchbacks for ride, performance and handling except the Ford Fusion nothing can match it.

Adarsh, can you please let me the know the member names who have experienced high maintenance costs on a Palio?
Please don't share your assumptions here and mislead the members, just share the actual facts.

Hey Finney, cool it man.

Nice choice of car and variant. Though I would have suggested the Verna too.

I am not interested at all in sharing assumptions or misleading members here. Also I dont remember the name of the member who have posted the report on his Palio Diesel. But the spare parts costs mentioned in the report was very high for a hatchback car. When I get time I'll search for that particular report and post it here.

If you can afford it go for the verna.
Really useful for your weekend highway jaunts.

Also in bangalore, hyundai A.S.S is supposed to be better than maruti, though maruti is not too bad.
i had a couple of bad experiences in bangalore with maruti A.S.S. Green Cars & i cant remember the other one. these guys are so rude, they do not qualify to be A.S.S. but i heard mandovi is good. i dont know about hyundai though.
