Booked my car today. I need to thank this wonderful forum which helped me in reaching my final decision. Moderator Vidyut (City CVT vs. Ciaz AT), VSG12777 (City vs. Ciaz), Severus (Corolla Altis CVT), aditto (City CVT) have helped clear some of my doubts and to their surprise may be, I have booked City instead of Corolla, Ciaz!

Make : Honda
Model : City
Variant : VX CVT
Took delivery of my car today:

Make : Hyundai
Model : Elantra
Variant : 1.8 VTVT A/T
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : 27-June-2015
Color : Polar White
Expected Delivery Date : 2 weeks as per SA while booking and they delivered.
Dealer & City : Kun Hyundai, Hyderabad.
Freebies : Floor mats, mud flaps.

I had to cancel my above quoted City booking as the dealer wanted me to make full payment even before PDI/even getting my VIN which I was not comfortable with. I have no issues waiting few days more after the car has reached stockyard, after all I have waited few months in deciding a new car, few more days is not going to make any difference.

Ideally, I would have loan agreement ready, remaining amount ready by the day the car arrives at showroom. Once satisfied with the car overall including year, month make, ODO etc., I would request the bank to disburse the loan, which will hardly take a day as loan has been approved already and at the same time make the remaining amount by RTGS/NEFT/Cheque. Once dealer gets the full payment, go and get the delivery - at the max 1-2 days if everything is in order. This will avoid hassles, being at the mercy of the dealer in case of obvious lemons.

Tip: if the loan is approved and is NOT disbursed then stamp duty will be returned but if you cancel the loan after it is disbursed, stamp duty will not be refunded.

Congratulations. I didn't know that Elantra comes with an auto option also. It is really unfortunate that you had to change your first choice. I also ended up paying before checking out my octavia. The dealers won't miss a chance to take advantage of a successful product.

Any way you have opted for a better car in a higher segment which will serve you well. What is the on road price and what is the difference between prices of Elantra and Corolla s auto?

I booked my car last week. Will get delivery in a couple of days.

Vento Highline 1.2 TSI petrol blue color.

Quick question please.Since this is my first car,I would just like to know what oil i need to put in the car. What the company recommends? Or can i put fully synthetic oil?

Also is there any antirust or anti corossion treatment or monsoon treatment that is recommended from the dealer itself? First car so I have no idea. Kindly guide in this regard.

Thanks guys!

Congrats bigvishnu and welcome to the GT Club !!

Can you please post the breakup of the GT now ? I wish you get your hands on your GT at the earliest.

Also, don't forget to post your buying experience on ownership thread.

Thank you Vikram. Needless to day, i have been a mute follower of your thread for a while now.

Just got intimation that the car has arrived. Will go today to do a detailed check and then settle the payment process. Hope to get delivery before this sunday if all works well.

Split up, remaining experience will be posted shortly!

Booked Swift Vxi from Amar Motors, Vadodara.

Car Traded : Hyundai Grand i10 diesel
OTR Cost of Swift : Rs. 5,99,225.
Accessories : None.
Color : White
Expected Delivery : 31-July-2015.

Lets hope the ownership of Swift turns out to be better than Grand i10.
Yes, missed out on ABS, etc., but as of now that's the one which suits pocket. Celerio Zxi(o) is Rs. 5.66 with ABS, but I think its not worth it. Swift is certainly a class higher.

Meanwhile, the old faithful Waggie CNG is still with me.

Congratulations and welcome to the Maruti club (Once again!) + Swift club.

Was the Grand i10 exchanged at True Value or sold it elsewhere? If I can ask, how much did you get the i10?

Congratulation on booking the Swift!
Mechanically for sure, the Swift won't disappoint you. Moreover, it will be welcome change after Grand i10 in terms of ride and handling.

But please get rid of those puny 165 tyres right after you take delivery. At least a 185 is a must. Do your research on this one.

Hope you have many joyful and trouble free miles with your Swift.
