Getz Crdi
Trident Hyundai offered mp3 player and remote control when i spoke to a sales agent today. Waiting time is 6 weeks. I am planning to book the car next month (still confused between Dzire VDI and Getz Crdi).
Color - Red as of now. Will have to check other colors available in Getz.

ABS may save you even at 40 kmph. It is not about being a high-speed driving braking system.

I personally feel that Dezire would be a better car compared to Getz.

Are you sure about this offer? please double check, may be this is the offer for petrol Getz version. Apart from the basic accessories i.e. mud flaps, floor/boot mats, God idol, car perfume, teflon coating, there is no other offers from both Trident and Advaith. Today morning I had been to Advaith to TD Getz CRDI and the sales guy confirmed apart from basic accessories no other offers. Unfortunately they didn't have the car in stock so I could not take the TD.
If your information is correct, then I will call up Trident and fix up the TD appointment.

This would have been ok if the pricing of the car was aggressive or a demand running for the product.Since both these are not there then it is a cold approach regarding the Getz.

Test drove a Dzire ZDI and fell in love with its features and ride. Its spacious, rides well, handles well, safe with abs and airbags, nice interiors, good diesel power train makes it a real VFM.

The only Getz CRDi I saw was BrandNew, totally ripped off, inside Auto Fusion(Anwars; Bangalore-kormangla), getting a nice ICE job. Even had the ribbons and plastic seat wrapers on, no number plate too. Any1 from tBHP?? (was around 15th of march)

I realised this when during the rains, though driving around 40-50kmph found at a turn a two wheeler in front of me coming wrongly on the one way road. Slammed the brakes - car kept skidding & turned the steering completely no reaction. Things happened like in slow motion, inspite of having some distance I helplessly saw the accident unfold. I was just prayer lord dont let my car go over them.

As the vehicle was was not speeding only scratches and bruises to the rider, his small kid & wife. my bumper was bent. Very minor damage to two wheeler.

I was shaken but was glad that they were fine . The two wheeler family were just speechless for some time.

I decided then that any future purchase should have ABS, and recommend the same to others as well.
