1 )Yes its is safe. I presume you car has ABS. Nevertheless, there are some stretches with very low shoulders and narrow tarmac. Watch out for people who do not yield !

2) Sringeri has many lodges now. The whole road is now packed with lodges, but getting accomodation is challenging as always. I recommend Thotadur Yatri Nivas in Kalasa.

3 ) Yes, a Ford Fiesta can handle these roads. Check your spare before you leave.

I drover to Sringeri Agumbe and back. It was amazing to drive through the winding hills and green valleys. Roads are still good and not damaged due to rains. Thanks for your tips.

Stayed at Advaith Lancer in Sringeri. Good but slightly expensive.
