still i have not figured out as to why are people already discussing the resale value of a cedia..there are no second hand cedia's in the market yet.... the car was released in March 06 if i am not mistaken...9 months... isint it too soon to decide???

i dont think HM will discontinue the cedia..they will probably come out with a upgraded version... This is the same model sold abroad also... the only next models they can get to India are the evo's from mitsubishi..which i think there is lot of time...

Is Cedia coming up with another version which has no air bags and alloys?

Yeah, you can expect another "Cedia Economy" with bench seats in front and regular steel wheels, no, ABS, no power windows, no A/c for about 7.5 lacs! Target would be taxi drivers.

every car in the 10lacs category come with a height adjuster. check it out though as they select version maynot have that.

If it does not have an adjuster, the seat can be permanently raised by using a spacer under the seat. You need to find a smart mechanic to do that.

finally.. I have booked Cedia. Hopefully will be getting it in a few days.

Thanks to all of you for giving very useful inputs.

Just one quick question -

Is it OK to go on long drive (say for 500 KMs one way) on a new car

OR

should we first drive it within city and not push engine too much till first servicing is done (1000 KMs).

waiting for your inputs.

Thanks.

Thumbs up

@Bantu, congrats for the new car...do post some pics soon..btw, which color you got...tell me...its yellow

new age engines ask for much less during run-in periods. you can certainely go for a long drive. however, try to stay within 2.5 to 3K rpms, speed is immaterial.

I went for a 600km trip before i completed by 1K and stayed between that rpm range and never crossed 100kmph, just to be on the safer side.

enjoy the long drive and do post your initial impressions of the car after you come back from your trip

Thanks.. I have taken Elegance variant, and unfortunately they don't paint it with yellow and not even black. It's Ashton Grey.

Hi! Congratulations for getting a cedia. According to me, there should not be any problem if you take the new car on a long drive, just make sure that you do not strain the engine i.e. over rev the engine or slog it in higher gears. Awaiting your reply regarding the driving impression of the cedia and also waiting for some pictures.

I am not a fan of that color though, after a year or so if not taken care properly, it may look quite dull. If it was me, i would have gone for the following color in order:-

French Claret
Pearl White
Nordic Blue

I liked French Claret as well.. But i thought color shine may go off after some time. May be I was wrong :-)

For me, it was close betn Nordic Blue and Grey. Tomorrow dealer is showing me one more color (recent add) - Warm Silver. So who knows... I have time till tomorrow afternoon. So I don't mind getting inputs on color selection as well. Thanks.
