Appreciate you bro, for opening this exciting thread!
My most favorite car is the Ertiga, the LUV which I LUV as my best companion.
I used to be a Maruti hater, for their earlier cars were cheap, cramped and flimsy mostly.
But this LUV bowled me over with the quality, flexibility and value factor.
I couldn't believe that it is a Maruti Suzuki product.
The perfect package at a perfect time, when we were looking for a spacious and flexible UV/Estate, to replace our 10 year old Indica LSi.
I first got to see a preview of the car in the March 2012 edition of AutocarIndia.
The pics and the description was enough for me to get excited about it!
When the car was launched on April 12th, me and my family were in Bangalore, to attend a wedding.
Being so excited, we visited a showroom near the hotel immediately and got aquainted with the LUV. It was a magical moment for me; full of excitement and LUV.
I got a feeling that he was perfect for me.
As soon as we returned home, we booked the car on April 19th.
Got delivery on June 14th. It's sad that I dont have any pics of the occasion.
Now it's been two fantastic years, and although the running is very less for a diesel car, I enjoy with him thoroughly when we get a chance. Although there are a few scratches, I'm hoping to get them cleared. It's me and only me who cleans and washes him.
I see that almost everyone addresses their car as a "she" or female.
But my LUV is a male, he is my best mate! (Because I don't have time for girlfriends)
Initially we didn't care to fasten our seat belts. But since I joined TAI
, I have made seat belts mandatory in my car, at least for the front passengers. (If me or my brother gets the backseat, we fasten our belts for sure.)
Although this may seem like a booking experience or an ownership report, It's about my favorite car and I also have him!
Feels great to be a LUVer!
