This is not confirmed news.Looks like the staff have been trained to do this 2.5 month thing .BTW,how many people here have "booked" inspite of knowing there is a so called 2.5 month waiting period ??.......oops it must be 3.5 by now

1. the dash sucks big time
2. the console sucks even worse
3. supply < demand == high waiting period (for any car)
4. more people can be killed with that much power (now it ll be getz's and swifts' showing each other who the boss is)
5. cost of ownership will still be lower on swift (maruti!!)
6. punto, aveo uva, aveo sedan, all tata cars with MJD, perhaps an adventure with MJD, Sx4 MJD will ensure maruti stays ahead (since they make the engine though fiat is partnered in this venture!)

lastly

7. customer benefits a lot since he will be spoilt for choices. the only point of decision making will now be factors like space, safety and price and not the power of engines anymore!

happy motoring!

Went back to Advaith today as a friend wanted to take a look at the Getz CRDI.

The car had clocked 35km's yesterday. Today the mileage read 88kms!! Damn guys at the dealership must have been having a blast last night

This is not the topic of this thread. Start a new thread if you want to discuss this. (check if there is already one)

People hardly know about the getz crdi being launched.even i was shocked since there were no predicted plans of this car coming so soon.there haven;t been any advertisements and there's already a waiting list of 2.5 months.
Could it be that the manufacturers try and present a view that the car already has a waiting list to show that the car is doing really well in the market???

The 2.5 months thingy! Huh, C'mon! Take it easy guys. That's the time it'll take them to actually deliver a car.

This car deserves a high-profile launch.

Jokes apart- His work looked a lot better than the Getz featured here.

Hyundai thinks the car deserves a high- profile price tag and waiting list.

Guys, I know this is C**p, but the Trident guy called me again today and said the waiting period has increased to 4 months. He has 12 booking till now. Apparently he is receiving only 3 cars per month and if I book now..it will be delivered in Feb08.

So this car is curtains for me. No more interest in it.

Hyundai probably just realised that they can deliver the first car only in 4 months time

It seems Hyundai has launched the Getz Crdi version in a hurry.

Hopefully, the four months waiting period is not real, otherwise, they can forget to eat into Swift Diesel market share.
