Hi All,
I am the newest member to this forum so I thought that I'd introduce myself .

I am a 30 year old businessman from Mumbai and I currently own the following:

1. Chevrolet Optra 1.6 ( 2004) done about 35000 Kms
2. Honda City 1.5 4AT ( 2001) done about 60000 kms
3. Maruti Zen LX ( 2002) done about 45000 kms

I hope to learn a lot from you guys.

Thanks

HH

The best? thats a tricky question. All the 3 cars have their own good and bad points.

The Zen is the best for city driving. Small and economical and with a decent amount of cabin space. Its very cheap to drive and mantain , the only drawback being the lack of decent space in the back ( I need to haul a gym bag, work bag and tennis racquets)

The Honda is probably the most convenient because its automatic. I am a self driver i.e Rarely let the driver drive me to work , and for me the Honda is great because it gives me decent mileage and is pretty spacious. Its also pretty reasonable to maintain in terms of service costs , repairs etc. My kit fits in the boot with comfort.

The Optra is probably one of the most comfortable cars I have sat in or even driven ( The other cars in the family include an E240 , 07 Accord and a Skoda Octavia , but they are cars that belong to other members of my family and not me) . The Optra gives me pretty decent mileage for the size of the car, has excellent cabin and boot space and the ride is super smooth.

Instead of choosing the best, let me rephrase the question and ask " Of the three , If I could have only one, which car would I choose" My answer would be the Optra.

Even though its a rebadged Daewoo , its one of the nicest cars that I have ever owned and even after driving it for 35k kms plus, the car drives like it did when I first bought it
