Got a couple of queries.
Will Jagga get to drive the Tucson?
Will you try the running over trick again, with a Tucson?

Congradz kitty on your new purchase.Probably your thread can now be named as MY 100,000 kms on Indian highway with Cameli.As said the new one for chintu or shrek

Can you please throw some light on the price and the second hand market of Tuscon.I was in fact about to start the card search for my next purchase and was looking at Tuscon very seriously.

In Bangalore, most Tucsons are priced above Rs. 10 lacs bracket. You will find an occassional one below 10 though. Check gaadi, carwale, cardekho, carazoo, sulekha, and autonagar websites for inventory.

Meanwhile, you can read all about my new Tucson here -

Looks a bit like Honda Civic from some angles, no?

Check out guys, Smartcat's new car

100,000 kms on Indian Highways, 6 treks & a Couple of Flights-civic.jpg

He has dropped his plans of buying Hyundai Tucson and has got a Honda Civic (9.1 L) Congrats Dude, the car looks fantabulous.

that's nice. It's a double whammy. Get the car-seat, and latch on to your civic and post photos! First a car, then a child.
If SmartCat can change his handle, I'd suggest SmartCar. Alas, there's no change in that side.

I bought your story with Tuscon.

Feel much better after seeing the Civic. Happy for you & GTO, yeah he is also the proud owner of pre owned civic.

So what would this be called now? - Chick?

Hey Tucson is not actually a bad car. I just had issues with the papers - else, would have bought it. It doesn't have any gadgets or luxurious interiors, but it has 4WD with traction control - I could have tried some different stunts with that capability. Powerful lag-free diesel engine, comfortable driving position, good steering feel, decent ride quality (although not as good as Optra/Civic) and small size (4.4 m) - it makes for an excellent used car buy if you find the right car.
