I was waiting for 120 BHP or 150 BHP engine in Linea. Even though it looks like good car for the dough I am waiting for another good one from FIAT.

I was considering a slightly sturdier car than the one I have right now. I could use an AWD system and some stability control in the harsh cold weather conditions in Northern Alberta.

So I'd be mainly looking at used AWD cars, like maybe the Ford Fusion AWD, the Subaru Legacy GT, or even a Volvo S40 AWD (which I really desire). Let's see what happens.

If I go completely insane, I might look for a used Dodge Charger 3.5 SXT, or the V6 Mustang coupe (2005-09 generation).

I recently saw an Audi A4 in person and I'm completely sold. The A4 3.2FSI or the 3.0TDI will be my next car, in all probability.

Ford Fiesta 1.6S or Fiat Linea FIRE Emotion+. What do you think lol, I just can't make up my mind. Pondering on Fast & furious vs luxury & beauty

Have been waiting for the Tata's to lauch their Xenon double cab for a year now. I guess recession has made both Tata's and me to wait for some more time.

For 4 years I enjoyed the Zen and now upgraded to Indica Vista as I wanted something bigger.

My next car will not come before 5 years and it will definitely be an SUV.
I will give sedans a pass as in my opinion the boot is useless liability for the car.
If I need to carry lot of luggage for occassional highway runs I will add a roof carrier and at the same time I get ease of parking and driving in the city and not to mention the FE gains due to the reduced size!

Cheers,
Nitin

booked a swift ddis azure grey a couple of weeks back. Loved the experience behind the wheels of my friends car.

Then again taking a test drive of the SX4 this afternoon. Love sedans and had a fallout with hatches (except the swift DDIS) because my family owns (ed) multiple hatches before.

The bottom line is that i am confused like a blind mouse.

PS: My driving is very limited as i walk down to office. Plan to drive for weekend getaways once in a while.
