As for the servicing have you ever heard of a gear box being opened for routine servicing. All that is required to be done is an oil change at the specified interval. Even a local mechanic could do that. For all auto companies Gear boxes apart for minor troubles, even today are taken care of by the company's own mechanics who in the case of your friend are but only 150 Kms away. Rest of the car is the same as any other i20, okay the engine is bigger, but then again! YOu know what SS Traveller at this rate we should not fly anymore as neither Boeing nor Airbus have a technician in the country who could take care of avionics or a facility that could service/repair a damaged hull.
Kindly reassure your friend as to not allow this vague statement to influence a major decision and to proceed with the TD of the i20 with an open mind.

Agreed, your friend should go for the test-drive.
That being said, if it is not going to be an automatic, the Punto is my recommendation, one needs to see beyond the interiors (which I've heard are better on the 2010 model) and then the Punto is a better automobile. In my opinion, superior dynamics are much more important that plastic quality.
Before the i20 owners catch hold of me, let me say that the i20 is a good car and one can't really go wrong with it. My girlfriend drives a Punto, and she says that she loves the sense of security (solid build and fantastic ride and handling) that the car gives her; so that shouldn't be a problem as far as a lady driving it is concerned.
