Going by the user experience (both personal and friends) and the recent articles that I read about Skoda, my choice is quite obvious. It's hands down for Honda City.

Question Is the new toyota corolla also an option?

Is the 2009 Toyota Corolla a strong contender with repect to:

1) Performance
2) Maintainance & Service Quality
3) On road Pricing
4) VFM
5) Owner feedbacks

Have previously owned a Maruti, then Hyundai & now Honda, but never a toyota till date!

Please enlighten

Not only are you comparing a brand new car with a used one , but also a Skoda at that. Have a look at their spares costs. Being a used car, you would be needing to refer to that list a lot.

Besides, even after paying so much when you are going to get spurious parts. Whats the point?

The ANHC mate , looks awesome, great resale and a lovely car all in all.

<edit> Hehe, good choice, realised after posting that you already made your choice ; seems we are in agreement then. looking forward to a ownership review and LOTS of snaps </edit>

Congrats Scarface! Good choice. The ANHC is a stunner to look at. Which colour did you opt for?
Do upgrade the footwear on the car (tyres & alloys) since it is a little under-tyred in stock form, and of course doesn't come with alloys (which is shocking for a 8L+ car IMO).
How much does Honda charge for the alloys they sell? Am guessing they would cost less outside.

Thanx Razor!

Opted for the Alabaster Silver.Its the same colour that you might have seen in the Civic.Want to upgrade the footwear asap.Have been recommened 195/65 - R14. Still deciding whether to go for the alloys & new tyres instantly or to drive with the stock Michlen Tyres for a while before I upgrade as you know, have paid close to 10 for the car to be on road.Love the feel of the car but all these small money saving tactics from Honda sadden me.The alloys that the company is offering is for a cool 47K & so are all the other accessories.Guess would have to wait a while before we have non branded accessories available for the ANHC at a more affordable price!Cheers!

The stock Michelins are okay. Much better than the GoodYear tyres they sometimes provide.

You can get alloys from outside if you wish.

Congrats on the purchase!

The earlier you upgrade, the more price you will get in exchange for your old tyres. Keep that in mind.

Its better not to go for a second hand car irrespective of the fact that the car might have maintained very well. Beware, there are couple of pathetic experiences that our fellow bhpians have had with some of them already fighting legal battles against Skoda India! Since the warranty might have expired, its simply not advisable to go for a Second hand Skoda.

I have an ANHC and am reasonably satisfied with the car. yes it has ceratin shortcomings but one does learn to live with it. Rest is your decision!

congrats on the new city. better upgrade rubber now and get most value of the current michelins. The more you wait, the more you loose. Else should forget the idea of upgrading. enjoy...
