Congratulations Trishul on your new Honda Brio VX AT. As a Brio owner, I can tell you that Brio is a little peppy hatchback. And with that butter smooth 1.2 ivtec engine, this car will put a grin on your face every time you take it out for a spin.

Brio AT is very convenient to drive in city. I could not buy it in 2014 due to financial constraints and had to be happy with an S MT version.

Wish you a problem free ownership and many happy miles.

Regards

Thanks Saubhik. My better half has been using it for her daily office commute and we have been very happy with the purchase. Couple of times tried to turn on ignition while the engine was already running, the iVTEC is really quiet and refined with really low NVH levels. I used to own an Accord a decade back and quite pleased in getting back to drive in one albeit in an automatic city hatch form. The only thorn so far is Honda omitting speed sensing auto lock in our Brio VX AT.

Yes, I can understand with your concern of not having the speed sensing auto lock in Brio; especially when your wife is driving it.

But, from my experiences I can tell you that less are the electronic functions in a car, better it is.

What can I say.! I found this thread 15 days late :(

Yes, I have booked my car as well 2 weeks ago, though the government records say there is another car in my name, this would be the first one I can call "My Car" and I hope its well worth the wait.

Coming to the details

Model : VW Polo Comfortline
Variant : Diesel
Color : Carbon Steel Grey ( no, it hurts to say..not flash RED )
location : Bangalore
Dealer : Apple Auto
Date : 2nd May16
Delivery : due to change of color from flash red to Grey, I doubt the date given will not be honored, i.e 24th May16
Cost : 9,22,000 (12k for Metallic else its 9.10) (includes Mudflaps,Car cover, Floor Mats, 0 depreciation) without Extd Warranty

what do you think ? did I get a fair deal or was I taken for a ride ?

This waiting period is not sinking in easily. I have already started stopping stuff that I should be buying after the car is delivered (micro fibre cloth, VCDS cable, Jopasu Duster, Jopasu wash Mitt, Blind spot mirrors)

Make: Hyundai
Model: Creta
Variant: SX
Fuel: Diesel
Colour: White

Dealer: Sharayu Hyundai, Navi Mumbai
Booking Date: 20th May 16
Booking Amount: Rs 25,000/-
Freebies & Discounts: Nil
Waiting period: 6 Months

Ex-Showroom price: Rs 12.62 lacs
Registration charges:Rs 1.52 lacs
Zero Depreciation: Rs 0.66 lacs

Booked it for my father, 6 months waiting period is really annoying and he is firm on Creta even if he has to wait for so long.

Can anybody confirm waiting period in other parts of country ?

Due to the latest developments in Namma Metro, I decided against going for a diesel hatchback for my daily commute and since my mother required an automatic for weekend use, I booked

Make : Maruti Suzuki
Model : Celerio
Variant : ZXi + AMT + Safety pack(+1 airbag and ABS)
Fuel : Petrol
Booking date : 29th May
Color : Sunshine Ray(yellow types)
Expected delivery date : Two Months - SA was having an egoistic expression "Saar you want ABS and airbag? Then wait for two months, else I will give you car tomorrow"
Dealer : Garuda Autocraft
Freebies : None as of now, but there are two months to extract some
Booking amount : 10,000
On road : 649000
Discount: 10000
Minus Maruti insurance: 16000
Plus own insurance: 8500(with NCB)
Plus Celerio OE alloy: 18000(set of four)

Totally: 6,49,500

Difference between Safety pack and non safety pack is a meagre 14k. Yet people are either not opting for it and the dealers too push the Vxi variant

Congralutions..!! First the Volvo V40 T4 and now Polo Tsi, two turbo-petrols back to back!
An ideal petrolhead garage indeed.

Is there any reason for choosing red color again?

Red is easy to maintain . Polo has only 3 colors - red, white, dark grey. After owning a black car, I am not going close to black or other dark colors again. White turns a bit yellow over the years so again didn't want it.

The brio was actually okay but after getting used to a European, it's hard to live with a Japanese car. The lack of refinement really hits you!

Hi,

How's your experience been with the car? I will be picking up mine soon.

Also, which Insurance did you go with? My dealer is saying they (or Ford) has cashless only with Bajaj Allianz, Iffco Tokio, Royal Sundaram and New India. I'm getting a similar quote (~22k) for HDFC zero-dep so wondering if there is merit to his argument.

Do mention anything to look out for during the PDI, post delivery. Thanks!
