nah already bought a Accent GL. This was a decision made with the help of fellow bhpians who guided me well or else would have made a wrong buy in Swift.

For the leisure i have an old trusty (not rusty) truck Sumo. it does its job cruising 80kmph all day.

I disagree with that..and i wud have expected better response from u.

FIAT is not that bad, its their management and luck to be blamed....

I love my palio... especially when it oversteers... (Drifting)
I hate my santro... coz it always understeers... (Kissing the divider)

All of you seem to have missed a equally funny one..
The Ford Ka

Now what could that probably mean ? If it was supposed to be a shorter version of "Car ", then why would you have a shorter version of a three letter word and make it two ?
