Well not zero, probably some integer value, on the right side of the number line, close to zero. If it were a perfect zero, the Sumo would fall even if standing still. But the way its driven by call center goondas, I'm not surprised at that zero image.

n yes too all the people who think INDIGO is the worst car they have driven ....
well its not WORST cmon , it is a difficult car to drive , infact it is NOS equipped i.e. if u switch off the A.C. button u get an amazin HP booost .... LOLz
but seriously it aint that bad , its a very practical car with great handling and the legroom behind is better than the OCTY ..

Hi,

The worst car I have driven used to be the Tatamobile(207 pickup which was converted into a 4 door) by Tata dealers. Was really pathetic in every manner possible. Sold it for 25% of value within a year of buying it.

A Mahindra Armada and a 10 year old M 800. The Armada was slower than a glacier moving uphill. You need to use a calender to measure the Armada's 0 - 60 time. The engine was from a French made harvestor manufactured by Puegeot. It boomed at 80 kmph, roof drummed like a glass bottle full of stones. Engine sounded like a mixer full of marbles. Pathetic car. My dad replaced that Armada with a new one!!!

The 800 belonged to my uncle. The engine use to shut down every time the car went over a speed breaker. The tyres were bald. The doors dint shut properly. The upholstery was sick. The gear shift felt like a pencil stuck in melting butter. It was even worse then the Armada. He replaced it with a new 800 and now drives a Swift. Thank GOD for small mercies.

It gonna be the OMNI. this box on wheels is a really scary machine to drive and to be driven, especially on the highways.

Another vehicle which is in my hate list is MM cj 500 Jeep which was so cumbersome to drive, because of its heavy steering and hard clutch.
