I never had a intention to start a thread of my own. Its not that i dont want to share my thoughts, since every one already discussed on various aspects of punto I thought I have nothing to share.
But I changed my mind thanks to 350Z. Now I am thinking that I know I am also going to write the same thing but perception is different and I try to write in crisp manner.
Moreover as 350Z mentioned my own thread will help me to resolve issues in future and to discuss about my updates and other stuff, thanks again guys.
Lets get back to story...
I always dreamt about car my own car, though We already own Ikon 1.4 TDCI, I wanted my own car. Even I thought of buying using my credit card (I thought ok I got credit limit of up to 4 lakh why dont I just swipe it to buy spark and own it for some time).
My friend is in search of buying car for him, whenever he does the testdrive I will accompany him . We almost Tded all the hatches.
When I was in the process of lookin for car I tried Figo, Beat , Ritz and Punto.
I figured out myself that I am not good at judging vehicle and what are all the points to be considered when you are buying a car. TESTDRIVE:
I took my friend when i took the test drive for Figo, I dint find any problem He found engine noise inside the cabin is more and engine performance is poor. (But I thought of taking Figo and put steel lader on the back
Then I took test drive for Beat. I dont know, for some reason for the full acceleration also It has not crossed 80kmph. so I dropped that option
Then I went for Ritz , that time I considered only diesel hatch. I liked it most , But my family members were against its looks. So I dropped it.
I never considerd swift because there are already many cars on road.
Then I went for Punto -- Till that time I was never thinking of that vehicle due to Tata dealership. I took the test drive I was very happy with the drive and comfort. But I felt It is too sluggish on 2nd gear , SA sadi that for the city drive they have kept it like this and he also said that even in 4th gear you can drive in 20kmph in traffic. I tried it . Its true...
Then I started thinking why not punto?, But my parents and brother worried about service and maintenance. But I decided to go for it.
I will continue in next post
