Friends!!I am a newbie to this forum.This is my first post.So please forgive me if I do a mistake.
The love for cars started when I was just a 1st Standard Student when I drove the KINETIC HONDA.It was our second vehicle.Since then,the passion for vehicles has increased in me.I'll start the ownership review.
Deciding on which car to buy:
We had a Maruti 800 which was a pre-worshipped beauty.We was its third owner and it served well for a year with us.It had just 45k on the odo when we brought it and we made another 15k in it.We took care of it very well and my dad was very close to it.My dad decided to sell it and get a new car.We sold it for Rs.60k
1.Hyundai Santro Xing ECO-A good car with a brand name of HYUNDAI
2.Maruti Suzuki Swift-Again a good car,but cramped interiors.So Swift ruled out.
Again came to Hyundai Showroom and test drove the I10.Felt very happy.Then,I decided that it was I10 and my dad and mom agreed with it.
Model and Variant:Hyundai I10 1.2 Magna
2.Changed to Champagne Gold
4.Atlast changed to Chamnpagne Gold
Delivery And Booking:
Went to the Chandra Hyundai Showroom at Peelamedu road and booked THE BEAUTY on January 14,2009 with a booikin amount of Rs.10k.The color booked was Champagne Gold.Returned home happily.
The delivery was scheduled on February 6,2009 and took the delivery.Drove straight to the Kamatchiamman Temple,did a Pooja and took it home.
Experience with THE CHAMPAGNE BEAUTY:
From day 1 it has been serving well.No niggles or whatsoever.We have driven 39k till now and we have changed the silencer and clutch wire,and changed the front tire.The maximum load we have put in this vehicle is 7 members from Coimbatore to Mettupalayam.
12-13 kmpl in City with AC
17-18 kmpl in Highways with AC
1.Kissed the divider and a small dent
2.Stuck in the ditch and a small dent
After Market Accessories:
The stock horn is very silent and have changed to the ROOTS VOLKSWAGEN TYPE HORN worth RS.1350.Since it is the MAGNA variant it did not have a stock ICE.So the ICE installed is PIONEER MP3 Player with USB/AUX Support with 2 Speakers and 2 Tweeters.Seat Covers from Chandra Hyundai has been put.Floor Mats from Chandra Hyundai.
Other Vehicles Owned:
Honda Unicorn Dazzler-Cherry Red Color
