The reverse gear next to first gear looks similar to Verna.Why Hyundai reverse gears are next to first gear why not like petrol vehicles which is after 5th gear

Firstly, CONGRATS on your choice.

How is that for 21 kms one spends 300/day



Also, one needs to wait for the glow plug indicator to go off before starting the car even if the glowplug glows only for a second or 2.

Nice comparison between the Getz and the Swift!

Why do you wait a minute before I Start ? the same logic applies here too.

Sir, please do wait - the dealer is misleading you!

It is a good practise even otherwise to let the turbo idle down! 30 seconds is good enough!

6. No hard stopping

Yeah but one can have fun doing heel 'n' toe where the closer pedals position helps!

Happy driving

Thanks. well 21 km one side and approx 50 km a day translates to 5 litres of gas given Bangalore traffic conditions (premium petrol @ 62.5/litre) now you do the math.

Thanks for the suggestions on the heating coil thinggy, I am doing it i.e. waiting for the light to go off before I start and sure will remember to keep the engine idling after coming to a stop say for 30 seconds.

As for the fun with the heel n toe, I prefer using the handbrake instead of trying that stunt out

Both techniques are used in different areas. You cant use a heel n toe and handbrake to achieve same results IMO
