Good Choice garry.

I own an Accent and it is a brilliant car for the price. A good comfortabe Sedan and has a big boot as well. It's built quite well. Good quality plastics around.

Keep us updated with the service experiences and other bits too.

Brother like i said , there is no other model , no GLE, GLS , GLX, there is just one model, and that is, ACCENT Executive.
As far as ICE is concerned , i have got Pioneer 2190UB HU, POLK AUDIO in front doors and BOSTON S95 in rear(for which i had to cut some metal). I have not installed any amp or woofers as of now, but i have got MTB Base tube with Sony woofer and a Two chanel amp, which i will bring from my hometown , Jalandhar in April.
Would soom post the pics of my car and ICE.

Buddy ,
the car doesnt come with CNG , its an option and i have not chosen that.
The CNG kit would still be in the boot as there is no other safer option. Beneath the body in India , what are we talking..?

Did you buy it from Orion, Safdarjang or Superon (Hyundai dealers in Gurgaon)? And eventually, did you buy it through the CSD or not? Because buying it through CSD would have saved you another 30K, atleast.

I bought the car from Safdarjang Motors in Udyog Vihar and the car is not available through CSD, otherwise of course, i would have robbed them.

Hey Garry,

Congrats on your new buy. Accent is my personal favourite (though i don't own one yet), especially VIVA.
Are we sure about CNG decreasing the performance of engine over time? As far as I have gathered, it only hurts the engine when you don't top up the petrol in your gas and keep on running on CNG until one fine day u realize there is no CNG (due to various reasons, Shortage etc) and you drive on STALE petrol, which surely would hurt your engine.

Correct me if I am wrong !

Off course the car is available through CSD. And the ex showroom price difference is 30k (4.99k vs 4.69k). Though I am not sure you would have got the same amount of discounts if you had purchased through CSD. Nevertheless, all the best and enjoy your ride.

Navneet, can you check availability of 2009 Verna Crdi (sx with ABS) through CSD alongwith ex-showroom price difference?

Checked a week back from Hyundai dealer in Chandigarh. New models are available through CSD though the prices for the new model are not yet available. However, the dealer is ready to book the car at old price and settle the difference afterwards. The two Hyundai Verna diesel models are available at old prices of 654K and 697K respectively plus the difference which will come to about 7 - 8K. Therefore, the SX should cost approximately 7.04L in Chandigarh CSD. If you want further details, you can contact Charisma Hyundai at 9357830660 and get further details. The lady at this phone number (forget her name) deals with CSD sales. Hope it helps.
