Thanks. At present I am in US and soon will be back in India ( Some two more months to go. )

I heard from several sources that a NMB is coming (New Maruti Baleno !) within 3 months. I hope it will come with upgraded tires, ABS, Air bags and better interior . I don't care much about looks etc.

However I won't wait for any such new things coming. Whenever I am ready, will buy the best available car (within my budget ofcourse) and at present it is no doubt NHC.

Well SMG my advice to you is that you should look at a car which has ABS in it sincer ABS is very importyant and is standard on many models..

Yes, I would like to have both, ABS and Airbags but at present both NHC and Baleno come without it and further it is not available as an option too.

I hope NMB will come with ABS and Airbags (NMB Zxi) .

I think the NMB should be having ABS since the swift has them and so does the wagon R.. atleast as an option..

That's exactly the opposite of what a EPS should do. It's supposed to be very light and sensitive at parking speeds and should get harder as the speed builds up.

Man you sure have had some wierd experiences with your NHC.

Atleast the ones i drove were pretty smooth and light at low speeds but didn't have the assuring feel while taking turns at speeds of over 140kmph. A tyre upgrade might help a bit.

Meaning? What kind of losses the company will incur if such cars meet with accident? Just a thought. Sorry for being off-topic.
