I am too ignorant of whats happening. Captiva- OK! been hearing that from a long time.

New Optra, Epica? I never knew! Coming to think of it, i think there was some spy pic (Optra, outside india) somewhere in the forum. Any timelines/expected dates?

Which company from among the Italians, Germans and the English are planning to launch cars in the sub-10 lakh price bracket in India?

After 49 posts, thread starter has only two posts here.

May I ask what exactly you want to know?

Do you have anything specific in mind?

sorry mate, I didn't really see that 10L cutoff.
Nevertheless, some <10L cars are coming from them like VW polo/golf offsprings.

To answer the thread title, yes! But with a bit difficulty.
Chevrolet cars as of now can be reliable. But it has to be taken care of properly too. If you want to thrash it around to the core and still expect it to work more like the Japs. It's difficult.

Around end 2008 is the time of the Epica or a Cadiallac Model which will rival the Accord. The New Optra will be launched by first quarter 2009.

Their next launch is the Hummer H3. I saw it today and its such a fantastic machine. I saw it at the show room, the seats are so good and the features too. Tires are so huge 255/70/16

What exactly did you post and when?
There's no reason for us not to approve your post unless there's something wrong there.

I think so, but i saw it at the Total Car Mall. Even the H3 has such a good presence, so wonder how the H1 would be.
