I pushed her till 140 KMPH on the bangalore-mysore highway which arguably is not really straight and has gradients, both vertical and horizontal. Felt like she still had some power left in her. A friend's swift diesel had managed 165 KMPH, but vista is heavier so not sure if she could beat that.

I feel she is powerful enough for me as of now, but may be when she gets a little old, will think of pete.

I absolutely love this car in White colour. Please also post some of the pics of the interiors and your comfort/discomfort with the instrument cluster in the middle.

Nishant, as far as i am concerned, i have had no problems with the instrument panel in the center, i have mentioned this in my earlier post as well.

I did upsize my tyres by a bit this time around :d from 175 65 r14 to 185 65 r14, may be the reason why she feels more volvo like

Prerana Motors did a decent job, although, the door handle was not painted to perfection. I noticed a tiny finger print, probably the paint guy decided to close the door carefully with a light touch after his job was done
hi, sorry to bump the thread after a long time. I own a Vista for 2 yrs, done 50,000 kms and need a change rather tyre upgrade of all the 4 tyres. I am confused between 185/65/ R 14 and 185/60/ R 14. As you had changed to 185/65/ R 14, please inform me regarding the change in fuel efficiency, ride comfort both in city and highway and handling. Were you able to fit the tyre in the stepney well in the boot?

with regards

Sorry for getting back so late, just missed the post. Fuel efficiency has been on the lower side, since i changed my tyres right after i bought the car, i don't really know the difference. I get around 13 in City and 14-15 on Highways, i usually drive with a heavy right foot. I was able to fit the spear tyre in the boot, though you need to struggle a bit to take it out.
