One of the cars I regret selling is our family's 2011 Hyundai i20 Sportz CRDi. Decently feature loaded, looked great (especially in red) and that punchy diesel motor! If I could find that car, id happily buy it again

In-spite of whatever I owned, the Wine Red Palio 1.2 was something special and would always regret of parting ways.

For me it would be two of our previous cars, for both nostalgic reasons and since we sold them off much before they aged:
1. 1998 Esteem VXI, simply loved this car and it was actually fuss free. Sold it at the 70k Km mark in 2004, it had mostly munched just highway miles

2. 2004 Maruti 800 VXI, pocket sized and agile, ideal for city runabouts. Sold with hardly 20k Km on the odo in 2009

I regret selling my yellow vRS because:

1. I absolutely love this shade of yellow (normally seen in only Porsche cars) which isnt available in any cars currently obviously apart from Porsches.

2. It was a perfectly sized, pure fun to drive car and was built like a tank.

The previous car of mine that i will like to buyback is certainly Fiat Punto 90HP, White Pearl shade. The car was always fun to drive. Sold it cause of the urge to upgrade but till date i miss its handling and built quality.

For me it's the Ford Fiesta TDCi. Pure driving bliss. Still can't get over the driving pleasure it provided. Had a ball of a time from 2006-2011 and a lakh kms with it.

It has to be my Silver colored Esteem LXi, that I got home in 2002 and sold in 2007.
It served me very well for about 70K odd km's. I have to dig into my archives for its picture. That's the one where I could comfortably do long drives right from the times of my son being a year old. I simply used to love its rev's and the way it glides in the highways.

Another one that I regret selling was my Safari GX. Despite the niggles, it still took me to many places inside Kerala, Tamilnadu, Karnataka,Rajasthan, Gujarat and during my several Pune-Bangalore-Pune trips 2X a month for almost 6 months. I had some strange chemistry with that car, so much so, I used to talk to my Safari. I sold it due to change of my work location and I didn't want to go through the hassles of registration changes etc..Its a different matter that after 6 months, I finally never moved states

I would love to have my Fiat Punto 1.3L back . This was my first car and I absolutely loved it . The lack of spare parts and high maintenance cost made me sell it after 7 years of wonderful experience .

Without a doubt
My Tata Sierra Turbo. Sadly cannot get it back as I crashed it and crashed it bad! But the truck ensured I survived - and thus began the Series of Tatas in our garage.

If it was a bike - My dads lovingly kept Rajdoot 175 - with the non monogrammed tank, bazooka shaped silencer
