I had experienced FIAT for last 7 years, i wanted a different experience.

I did not like US cars and their apporach towards customers. Among European cars, Skoda Laura was the best package, but beyond my budget Hyundai verna was one of the alternative, but ANHC is much better.
Japanese companies certainly have better customer response and brand value. City has great re-sale value as well.

And which color?? you dint mention the color bro,Good set of accesories except the air freshner,I personally dont like them as its injurious to health,Dont ask me then why do you smoke ,lolz.The perfume tends to send out a peculiar odur when the car is in the sun.

sorry, I have chosen SILVER color as it was highly influenced by my wife.

i have also observed that car perfumes send our odur when car is in the sun. does any one know the reason for it ?

i generally use very mild car freshners as stong ones create headache for me on long drives.

Found the ANHC query about overheating. That is the only non european sedan query I found interesting.

Wow! What an upgrade. I read the entire thread. I too thought it would be the linea. Then came your post about the registration and stuff, so knew it wasn't gonna be the linea (waiting period) I seriously did not expect it to be the ANHC. Congrats!

@StarVegabond: congrats on your new car. Glad you got your dream car.

Our buying pattern was very similar : We bought a Plaio 1.2 ELX in 2002, we we upgraded to an ANHC in 2009. I own a Bold Beige one. I am keeping my Palio too just like you - my wife's driving it.

How much is it on road now?
