@Sameel, your review is a bit confusing. One way, your praising Verna in full glory and you end your post by saying your not completely satisfied without giving reasons for your un-satisfaction. Can you clear the foggy air?

@mobike008 ... dude i said that i havnt had enough of driving my verna ...i am willing to wait till the getz crdi comes with abs and all discs ..till then i wont trade in my accent DLS for any other car ..till then i have my verna for enjoing to the fullest..hope that clears the fog....
@shebin..those are aura alloys r14 tyres are stock 185/60 ..MRF.. ..and yeah the initial vehicles ...read non abs had a problem with suspension n the power steering ..rack n pinion arrangement had some issues which were sorted out in the abs version .. (this version came later) .. and yeah i missed out on verna sx .. one reason only.. before april 1 the road tax was rs 18800 ...and after april one..6% of vehicle cost ...dam.. i even had to settle for red instead of black... for this...but now i take that back.. red rocks ..everyone goes wow with her looks ... bling bling assured..thanks to alloys too and yup i painted the front and rear calipers red...sexy..... cant wait for the getz crdi...this time i plan to take black ..hehe ...

Hi friends. I have bid fareweel to my lady in red ( Viva CRDi ) after giving her a sponge bath, perfumes and flowers- after running for 3 years 65000 kms of very very happy driving in original paint, original tyres, new battery, new seat covers, mp3( sony explod with remote) and new mats and fog lamps ( after market fitments). Primary reason being that I didnt want to risk keeping it for another 15K and two more months, cause else, I should lose a lot of resale value, spend on timing gears, ac gas, new tyres and insurance renewal.
Its time for hunting for a equally good vehicle as I said I have been very happy owner as the car never troubled me and of course I also pampered her as much needed.
Have test driven Verna VGT ( yes its CRDi too , but i was referring to Accent CRDi as Crdi in my earlier post) but very confused as to whether wait for two months more( 2008 make) or should go in for it now with SX ABS. Hope the suspension issues are sorted out as mentioned by sameel.
Please, advise.

140kmph in the rain with those MRFs is very risky...Drive safe and enjoy the car.

Anyways hows the road condition between Thrissur- Palakkad??

Vernas and Accent CRDI has exhaust black smoking problems. Dealers accept that they by pass the EGR fucntion, ie by grinding the EGR valve opening . THis avoids black smoke , but in the long run it affects the engine life or Caty Conv life. This will lead to major engine overhaul. Cost of Injector and TC or too expensive. So beware

Wel,, I've been quiet on the Verna for a long time. This time I took it to pune and was faced with an empty stretch, so I let her rip as fast as she would go. Placed foot fully on accelerator for about 10 straight minutes.

I am pleased to announce that a stock Verna CRDi will go upto 190kmph and no more.

No this is not normal. Drive to someone else's house.

And we are pleased to note that you took her to her limit like REO Speedwagon once said to me long long ago. Even the Eagles said that a little while before them.

But next time take her to somewhere else, she might go faster.
