The tyres look much bigger now with the contrasting shine of alloys (ppl have pointed out) and each time I have delightedly told them that I havnt spent a penny on rubber. So change those pressed steel and retain the stock tyres.
3rd.. I bought ebony black . Silver or other colors make the car look less bigger ,and they lose the shine after an yr the car starts looking dull, whereas in black it looks imposing and trust me mine looks like a mini jaguar KX type cud show you the pic but moderator hasnt blessed me yet with the option .!!
my suggestion go for - Black or Deep pearl blue or REd if u dare! (I have an indica turbo in red and looks ferocious with those alloys)
Hey Dude,

Thanks for thei input. I need to check the tyre specifications again, as when i looked at the display car in the showroom, it had the 175 specification and only the limited edition which comes with a spoiler and 6 dvd changer had the 185/60 R14 tyre with alloy and on-road cost was 10lakhs and some chage.

I would love to go for the black anyday but the only problem if there is a scratch its visible compared to sliver or real earth. My pervious car which was a santro did have scratches but not that visible unless noticed.

Regards,
Sajan

Sajan

I dont understand why market in the north is not mature enough to have any of such things going around.. you even hardly see ppl buying SX ABS. nevertheless, I feel ppl are more enthusiastic and willing in south when it comes to cars. NOrth is generally conservative sorts

I agree, matching Hyundai's after sales service is going to be unlikely for the Fiat. but, the grand punto is such a nice car. if he can afford to, he should wait, is all I'm saying.

I doubt fiat wud be able to carry it on its shoulders, no matter Tata is with them. The aftersales, spares and residual value wud always be an issue. I would rather prefer an established indian brand rather than going for something which I wanna sell after say 4 years and there are no takers in the market.

I am having a querry regarding Climate control.

Whenever I put the mode to `auto ac` in my verna , it takes the air from outside (not internal circulation) and in this process it takes in smoke etc as well from outside , when i press the internal circulation button the autoac goesoff and normal ac works. My querry is whether AUTOAC can work with internal circulation switched on .

It will work with the recirculate on.
the recirculate button has to be pressed fequently. it turns itself to vent when the temperature inside the cabin reaches the user's preference.
I find it irritating that I have to keep pressing the recirculate button every now and then.

The same thing happened in my brother's car.
the problem is when the inside temp is 23 and select AC auto mode with Temp 25 then it automatically get air from outside to warm up the cabin.if you select AC auto mode with temp < the current temp then it remains in recirculation mode.try and lemme know

Default Resaloe value of verna

Just for information , I would like to know how my car would depriciate in market value in the years to come:

Pls pour in your opinion about Verna SX ABS (9.08lacs on road) model`s general market value after:-

After 1st year /25000K : value?

After 2nd Year / 40- 50000K : ?

3rd Year / 70-75K: ?

4yr old /100000 Km :


It would be crucial in calculating total money depriciating each year and arriving at a critical `must sell`/`must keep` point of time.

I checked up in the Verna owners manual there is no such setting that we can change it on our own way!

well this is really bad setting because in Mumbai there is such a pollution. Outside the car that it is better that we keep it in side car air setting only.

Can any one help on this ?
