Do you mean you are of small build or too big for Safari ? I assume you mean you are of a small build. hey mate,... have you seen some really puny drivers maneuver the BEST around in small lanes?

I would suggest a new Safari DICOR instead of a 2nd hand Honda CRV.

pls advise.. can anyone share their experience with CRV?

If you are buyin 2nd hand, strip to the last bolt while you check the piece.
Best of luck.

No mention about the toyota innova/Mahindra scorpio.

Since FE is not much of a problem how about the vvti Innova,if you cannot live with those looks and the Mpv tag then from the choices you have given the CRV would be the best choice.

PS: The cedia is a great car but let down by its manufacturer.

In Ahmedabad Landmark Honda sucks while Autonova Mitsubishi(previously Cama motors) have been great. But Many people have had reverse experiences too. Check out the dealer feedback for both Honda and Mitsubishi in your city.
hi..
i am from ahmedabad itself and surely ur feedback on dealer service helps.. my OHC used to get serviced in rajkot and have no bad experience about it.

i have kind of made up my mind, if i dont get a decent second hand CRV in next week i shall buy the new Cedia Select... what do u say?

regards

Did you read this month's TG? There is a two page article on owning used CRVs. Nice material.

IMO, Better to opt for a first hand Cedia than a seconds CRV

Cedia... well.. be sure that you won't have any service issues(perhaps, check with someone that already owns one out there).
Not happy with the performance of the stock? It is an awesome car to modify! amazing handling! it's in the genes!

Hi Pooshnark,

Autonova Mistubishi is an excellent dealership. Service quality is slightly wont get full marks though as you need to show them the small niggles to get them fixed, which they do after all.

Landmark Honda is a much bigger dealer. Honda also sells more cars anyways. But I have had a dealer conflict before because he lied to me. Secondly a friend of mine at the gymnasium uses a Honda City. he is completely satisfied but one of his friends had a conflict and he bought it from Baroda or Surat somewhere.

So not really anything peculiar to point out as the price band you are going to invest in, most cars are of excellent quality and even the dealers are good.

Why I would go against the CR-V is because you are looking for used. While spending close to 10lacs I would recommend a new car and hence the cedia.

BTW: Cedia sports price tag in ahmedabad according to the dealer has gone close to 8.9
