Need some advice on a chevrolet purchase
I am contemplating purchasing a Chevrolet UVA car soon. I need some help
regarding the following
1. Is it worth going for the 3 year warranty scheme. The dealer says that I have to pay the 10k amount for it( free for 2009 model only)
2. What would be the best tyre make for the car. I have read some posts here and have mentioned to the dealer about some of the problems faced by some people regd Goodyear for example , which the dealer might put. Please can the owners or experienced people help me out here in choosing the correct type - so that i can insist on that if possible.
Also, a request to owners of UVA - if you have any other tips which you can offer , I would be grateful. This is my first car purchase- but seem to like t
Just would like to get the best deal from the dealer.

Thanks for the update.
Do you think, it is still advisable to upgrade to the tyre type which LT gets
(I am going for LS) ?? I am slightly worried abt this as some polls and comments
have not been very favorable of GoodYear.
Also, did you mean a new UVA model is coming out soon? -

At that price, you will get better options. The LS version is bare bones and does not even have a tacho.
The interiors are roomy but pretty basic.
Moreover, the U-va is in for a face lift which in pics looks a lot better than the current one in India.

The U-VA is a solid car which is often underrated. Not too great on performance, but it's got great ride, loads of space, and is refined. If you're OK with the looks, it's a great choice. It will give you some identity in a sea of Marutis, and I would choose it for that reason alone. Personally, I think that the design by Italdesign is great. If you're keen on it, I'd advise waiting till the facelifted model arrives, because it will have better resale. You can check it out on Wikipedia.
Don't be afraid to ask for freebies/discounts from the dealer. The U-VA is a slow selling car. Use that to your advantage. Always buy at the end of the month, they'll be worried about their targets and will make deals they would have refused earlier in the month. I remember that I was offered the top of the line Chevy Spark for 4L on road. Spark is a good selling car, but the sales guy offered a discount because it was the 25th of the month.
The team-bhp checklist for purchasing a new car is an invaluable resource. Take a printout and keep it with you.

I have the LS model since the last 2 years now. The first thing I did was upgrade to 14" alloys and better rubber (straight out of the showroom). The showroom quoted an insane amount for the tires upgrade to the one that comes on the LT model. I am now running Yoko ES100 (195/60 R14) - excellent grip and cornering confidence!
As for the car itself - I have had no issues at all with it in my ownership, touch wood. I only took a one-year warranty plan (because I wanted to mod as quickly as possible ).
The stock car is decently powered, plenty of interior space, sober interiors, solid build quality and very comfortable. A friend of mine who bought a Swift only a couple of weeks ago commented that his Swift rattles more than my U-VA does even after two years.
Black looks better than the other colors IMO. Would be glad to offer you any pointers!
