No . It is not. As I mentioned earlier, all of us are free to Like , Buy, Enjoy whatever cars we want.

I had an issue with the 100- 0 numbers , which were incidentally brought in by you first,...

Your "neat double" statement putting down scorpio was completely and factually worng..as proved by your own numbers..

Being a public forum, obvious statistical mistakes will be pointed out..whether you like it or not.

Hey! THis might sound a little awkward after all this. But what do you guys have to say about the Innova Petrol G1 which comes at only around 30K above the safariLX.

Are you the gambling type ??? then go for the lottery. If you are intending to keep the car for only 3-4 years, go for the pocket drainer, it wont drain that much.
or make a safe decision, get a NHC as someone suggested or wait for the new baleno.
or if you can expand your budget, get the innova.

After all this, if you still like the safari, take it man, after all you should be satisfied first.

dont worry, nothing is weird here.
when i did suggest the innova before, a fellow safari owner got very upset. but be warned that you are talking about the petrol innova. the running costs could be high.
