Default My First Car , Hyundai Verna VGT SX

Hello All

There is a good news and a bad news. the bad news is that i have cancelled my swift vdi with abs due to some reasons , and the good news is that i have bought Hyundai verna vgt Sx in white colour. the decision is made in the family that there is a need of a car with enough boot to carry two big bags. so after swift my ony options are dezire and verna. i somehow didnt like the back of dzire. so zeroed on verna.

so i am in the market again for verna but the real pain started when i have a very limited colour choice , only black, maroon , ral earth , silver is available. white is not even available in gurgaon , sonipat , panipat and haryana. then my friend digged up white sx vgt in himgiri hyundai , wazirpur , delhi. it was top model vgt without abs , i have no other choice but to take the car.

another pain was on the day of delivery , when doing some checks (TBHP checklist) i noticed the cars odo which has reading of 222 kilometers. lot of shout is made but there is no other car to have , all was booked and i am left with black petrol verna. i took the delivery and have written on pdi slip that this car has done 222 kilometers at the time of delivery. pdi slip is with dealership but i have the copy of same.


at the end , the experience was very good , it took me close to 2 hrs to compleate all checks mentioned in tbhp checklist. i recomend this list to all.

The alloys + tyre +my music system has to wait because of sudden 2.5 lakhs diffrence between two cars. Pics will be up asap.

Congrats on your verna sx buddy! Welcome to the club! Your going to have some major fun with this car! Do have a check up on the gearbox and the wheel alignment of the car (my car kept going to the left a few days after delivery, it was fixed during 1st service).
Happy overtaking and zooming, but be careful, and do drive safe cause the engine on this car will make u a verna-aholic

Congrats,
The car is really a gem in engine
I have driven the car for more than 1500 kms
I have crossed 193 KMs/H in Bangalore Highway once.
But it's scary after 135kms.The Steering is feeling very light and disconnected.
Highway driving is like a dream
City driving is little cumbersome.
Overall it's a good package.
ABS could haven given a good braking,if you opted
