ive pain stakingly maintained it
im gettin either a viva crdi ( most probably as the car will be used quite a bit and a diesel car will be welcome for long runs and duties )
or a honda city

Lambo,
Be prepared to wait for about 3months for the CRDi. Last week a dealer had called enquiring if I'd booked the car. I told that I'd already booked it & awaiting delivery. Thats when she said that new bookings for CRDi have a waiting period of 3months.

CRDi is an excellent car,of wot i`ve heard.Never driven any Hyundai`s though.
Why dont u try out a Lancer Diesel,as it supposed to be a cool car too.I`ve driven Lancer done 200,000kms too.And trust me it feels like as if the car still has 3/4th of life remaining.
And another options could be the Fiat Petra too.Although i personally wud`nt even consider it,but its a gr8 car.
What do ya think??

hey guys
firstly im gettin the viva cause its cheaper - 7.6 on road thane with alloys and cd changer, fogs and sports gear
but the conflict is between the nhc and the viva crdi
the viva is cheaper to maintain
cheap to own
good FE
good looks
okay - good service
and an sexy engine

the city- space
comfort
FE
maintainance - cheap
petrol

but the city with alloys and all is comin to 7.75 laks.....
ill be test drivin both cars tomorrow so ill let u noe
btw.......
no petra - ive already got a palio - cars are too similar , and FE is one of my priorities and if diesel it has to be quite quick ...
the petras good fr people with a budget of 6 laks
but my budget is 7.5
so why not look or the best

lancer diesel - too expensive , sluggish ( even in petrol )
bad resale

i had considered all the cars under 7.5 and have shortlisted the viva and nhc
help please

btw any takers for the ikon ?
