Thanks Khoj & AutoIndian. I've just started a new ownership experience thread (Vento -- My Horse of Battle, Horse of Ballet!)...

Please post your comments.
Advance Congratulations to you Swift Express. You are really lucky , but this at least goes to show there is some silver lining in the dark cloud of Vento waiting periods. As you said someone might have canceled his booking & you got the benefit. However kudos to the dealership for being fair & allotting that car to you rather than indulging in any malpractices as experienced by some members over here.

I think its because you opted for a Trendline. Folks in Bangalore and Cochin were saying that you get it in a month if its a Trendline. But you will have to wait for a long time if its a HL.

BTW, I saw 3 Vento's yesterday. May be more cars are being delivered now. A White TDI HL, Silver TDI HL and a Red Petrol HL. Saw this Red one near Ulsoor lake in the night and I liked it. We stopped our car and checked it from all angles. May be I will go with Red itself

Thanks Noopster, Uday, Naveen. I guess I must not expect double digits from my Vento AT. Dealer says delivery period is 3-4 months at Bangalore. Am now preparing to forget all about my new car till I hear of the allotment :-(
Meanwhile I have to say that my test drives absolutely convinced me to go for the Vento. As a 5-year Scorpio owner, my expections on sturdiness was high, and the Vento met that in addition to offering very classy looks and feature-rich interiors.

Congratulations Naveen. Your patience has borne the fruit at last. So what is the final delivery date & how many weeks did your waiting period end into?

After waiting & watching for all this while I am finally on the verge of booking the Vento.

I have got the following quote from VW Navi Mumbai:

Vento Petrol (HL Petrol MT)

On Road price: 902000
Corporate Discount: 14000
Final Price: 888000
Waiting Time: 2 months

Vento Diesel (HL Diesel)

On Road price:1011000
Corporate Discount:16000
Final Price :995000
Waiting Time:3 months

Need advise if it can be bettered further.

No freebies or accessories. I will have to shell out for the following basic accessories:

1. Floor Mats
2. Mudflaps
3. Reverse Sonar (Can't live without it now)

I will forgo the Sun Film (never had in any of my cars so why start now) & the Teflon and underbody coating.

I am planning to go for the Highline Petrol MT since my running is less than 500 Kms in a month and with looming prospects of Diesel prices coming at par with Petrol that advantage may also be lost.

I will surely miss the following when compared to my Scorpio:

1. Steering mounted audio controls
2. Cruise Control
3. Auto Lights
4. Auto Wipers
5. Audiable warnings
6. Tyre Pressure Monitors

Planning for a TD this week end to take a call (I may perhaps have a lookie and try the TD of the Etios on the same day )

Well well! the waiting time of 3 months looks like a good sign, when did you take the quote ?

Seems that VW is doing something about the delivery dates. That way I guess we should get our cars delivered in a couple of months

May I suggest you to buy Vento D.
Trust me you will enjoy the torque rush. 1L is a nominal price to pay for it. And as far as I know Diesel prices will not shoot up in near future. And even if it does you will still enjoy the Better Milage.

In Fact to me If you are bent upon buying a petrol go for T-Jet.
This is just my opinion. Have a look at T-Jet before jumping into any decision.

As a petrol Vento MT owner I'll suggest a Diesel to anyone who asks me as well

We are paying 1.08 lacs more in bangalore. Terrible! . You should for a minute assume that you are in Bangalore and just got for Diesel and enjoy that torque.

Had a talk with the dealer today. If some one is in a hurry to get your car, then don't go for white and silver. More bookings are on those and it will take more time. I am for either Black or Red. So I might get it in Jan itself if I am lucky.

Thanks AutoIndian for the wishes.Hope i get lucky with the ownership experience as well.Do think VW has ramped up production or maybe it was going slow initially on the numbers front with the focus more on quality.

Do agree with you on the waiting period being less for Trendline.When i had boooked it i was told that Trendline waiting period is 3-4 months and that for HL is 6 months.Why i was taken aback was that the actual waiting period was not even half of what was told to me.

Going for a RED Vento sure will be a bold move .From side on it sure looks a beauty.And the VW Red paint finish sure is a standout. However i am not that sure about how the Red looks on the backside .Neways i went for it as my Swift and the Pulsar were both red and have given very good performance inspite of being driven to the limit -- 1 lakh plus kms each.

At last! Quite a few of us were eagerly waiting for your Vento to arrive, as you were one of the first to report a confirmed booking.
Congratulations. Please keep us updated with your ownership experiences.

Congratulations Swift Express. Going by my experience in the last 20 days, I am sure you will have loads of fun with your Vento.
Even I think VW has ramped up its production, as I am getting to hear and see more Ventos delivered in the last 2-3 weeks.
