Default Hello everyone...

I am Maulik, nicknamed CHEVELLE....
I came across this website a month back.
I immediately came across the superior content compared to other websites which helped me not only improve my knowledge, but help my friends make valuable decision regarding which car to buy and what accessories to install
thanks a lot on his part..

Currently i m in USA, but when i was INDIA, i was mad abt cars. Use to read all the magazine in detail. Though i felt they were not upto the mark until i came across this website which gave detailed info about all the cars.

I look forward to contribute my knowledge with you people and expect the same from youcheers:.

Default Cars that i ride in USA

Thanks Jaggu and Sammyboy

I currently ride a 1996 Honda Accord(second hand) and 2007 Honda CRV(new)

as you must have guessed from the rides, i am a HONDA fan. Its not like other companies are bad, but something in honda strikes right in my heart n mind....
looking forward to go for luxury sedan soon aka bmw 3-series or merc c-class.

The experience with both of them have been really good. No troubles, sedate driving with occasional ripping of engine. CRV is very good for long drives, behaves quite good on Freeways. In city, the steering offers good feedback. Body roll is quite good for SUV of this size...acceptable. Compared to RAV4, Captiva, Santa Fe, it is quite good, no wonder it is selling like hot cakes here...The features on CRV is also good, with heated seats, gps, 10 speaker sound system with six cd changer among others.

One thing is for sure, the reliability of HONDA cars is really awesome. 12 years on, the accord is still in good condition, though credit goes to its previous owner who maintained it like he really cared for the ride. Haven't faced any problems for both the cars till now apart from regular servicing. Though accord have been through major overhaul, done by previous owner though.

I own a Hyundai Santro Xing in INDIA, and experience with Santro has been quite good too apart from occasional close calls during my drives. Though have been unlucky, as xing has been hurt from back as well as front due to carelessness of other drivers.
Will write the review in its designated section soon.

Your views would be appreciated
