Ever given a thought on a cute little small yellow REVA..?

dude she doesn't have a fetish for yellow .. she just wants a different color

Also, mom's a very good driver perfectly capable of driving "big" cars .. but we NEED a small car for the odd-job here and there.

Anyhow update is that we saw the Getz today and although she loved it .. she ruled out the Lavender color. her logic is that she wouldn't be able to see that color every day for 5 years .. (we usually keep or cars atleast that long) .. maybe for a year or so after which the charm would wear ..

Anyhow, now considering either the Red or the Sky bluish color ..

The wagonR looks real nice and well maintained for a seven year old car...

Hey... Why are you not considering the Swift??? IMO, its much better than Getz, if you dont need loads of legroom at the rear...

Well, both cars have their pros and cons overall balancing the equation .. but the issue is that everyone seems to be buying the Swift aajkal .. that's a negative IMHO ..

plus the Getz seems a bit more refined and classy whereas the Swift is more brutish .. maybe a plus for me but not Mom I think.

Ok Manveet here's a genuine idea. Buy the Getz & get a good discount, let aunty drive around for a year or so. Then take the car to Pandit & have it painted in Yellow/Orange/Pink/Lime Green or whatever colour she wants! She'll be happy & the job will be absolute top-class too!

Hyundai Santro automatic seems to be the best option. I find the Santro the best car to drive around in the city and your mom will also love it. You can have the automatic, which I think comes fully loaded and spend the cash saved on other accessories. Getz is in a segment above but then you compromise on the automatic. Also, the automatic Santro's average will be quite decent, I believe the best among automatics. For ease of city driving, nothing to beat the Santro. For more space and a bigger engine (which I think definitely tempts us), Getz is not a bad option, considering that there is very little difference in the price of automatic Santro and the base Getz model.

They are upgrading from wagonR...

So... I dont think upgrading to a Santro makes sense... He has specifically mentioned that Santro is ruled out as its too small...

Manveet is the chevy SRV out of budget. It's better than the getz for sure and it has that interesting blue colour.

Somehow the Chevy's being offered in India don't appeal to me.

I'm looking for a practical everyday easy to maintain car .. something that can stand the test of time. An SST solution - sasta sundar tikaooo.

In my opinion, cars like the U-Va, Aveo, SRV etc are more faddish - I doubt their A.S.S. and long-term reliability as well as resale value.

Plus, all the jazzy features are wasted as this being a third and smallest car in the family - I doubt if it will ever seat more than 2 people, and definately NEVER see the highway.
