I know. Life sucks. I want a Skyline, but I don't know when I will be able to get one. :(

yes i know petra is a much better product but u just dont buy the car alone... ASS is almost non existent, Fiat as a brand is at an all time low, resale value are absymal... i think price is a combination of all the factors!

Alright, you are talking about whole package and not about the car alone. I agree with you then. (Why me? Sales figures themselves speaks loud )

I would reccomend the Petra.
The Indigo only beats it in space and resale value by maybe 50K max. Remember, Indigo doesn't have the best resale value either.
ASS may be bad but then its very hyped up.
It isn't even alf as bad as it is being portrayed.

Guys, I have an unique problem. My indigo petrol stops while idling. Its >5 years old and have done >78K kms on that. I undergo all the regular services at TASC, and get a city mileage of 11.
Please let me know in case any of you have a fix.

Please get the idling fixed by the TASC. In older carburetor models you could adjust the idling screw, but in fuel injected engine the ECU requires adjustment as it has to cater to AC, air temparature and engine temparature to set proper idling.

That the idling is air temparature dependent points to ECU sensor problem. In my K10 as well as the Esteem the idling is higher due to chill till the engine temparature stabilises. I think that one of the engine sensors is misbehaving, that had happened in my Esteem which would reduce idling with AC instead of increasing. Changing the sensor did the job.

I own a Tata Indigo XL Classic Petrol and except for the mileage and plastics quality, everything else is good about this car. The mileage in the city really sucks (about 8 to 9 Kms) but on the highways, it's a breezer. I have recorded 14Kms even while driving at speed above 100Kph.

While I was scouting for my diesel sedan, many petrol versions were also screened and my preference was Fiesta and Aveo.
