After a very long process of decision making, atlast I brought home my new Honda Jazz Select.
The thought of buying a new car came into my mind 4 months back. The biggest question that I had in my mind is whether to buy a petrol car or diesel car. Taking my monthly usage into consideration, I was confused whether to go for petrol or diesel. It was like both are okay for me. Atlast I decided to go for a petrol car.
There were many cars that were into consideration. Starting from hatchback i10 to sedan Toyota Etios. My dad wanted a spacious car as we were cramped up in Maruthi 800 for a long 16 years.
. so we started analyzing cars one by one. The cars we had in our mind were i10, i20, Punto, Ritz, Swift, Liva, Etios.
We dropped i20 due to low mileage reports. I personally did not like i10. So dropped that too. My dad really loved Punto so much. The interior was looking great. but found that the rear legroom is less. Moreover some said petrol Punto is not good (donít know if itís true or not).
Then I visited the Toyota showroom with my friend. The sales executive over there took us to display vehicle area. I could see both the Liva and Etios are parked side by side. As i reached nearer to the car, I was getting disappointed because the rear looks failed to impress me. The i got into the car for a detailed look. The moment I got inside the car, I decided that at any cost i would not buy this car. The interior were so ugly that it took me no time to decide not to buy this car. the meter console looked like a plain white sticker pasted on to the dash board with numbers typed on it. I even thought, Maruthi 800 had a better meter console than this. So I dropped both the Liva and Etios from my list.
As we were using a Maruthi product for 16 long years, my dad wanted to have something different. So swift and Ritz was least into consideration. Atlast we had no choice and we had to decide upon Ritz and Swift. My dad was so much against going for Ritz because of its rear looks. He said it was looking as if someone had crashed its rear onto a wall. That was the time when the new Swift has been launched. And I liked swift a lot for it looks. I took my father to the showroom to have a look at it. Both the exteriors and interior looking awesome. My dad got into the car to check the legroom and head room, which was very important for him as he is 6 feet tall. He got into the front seat and I could see on his face that he is not fully satisfied but still he didnít say anything. Then he got out and got into the back. This time he did say that the rear legroom is less, though the new swift claimed to be little more spacious than the older one. We had no other choice left and atlast decided to go for swift itself and he asked the sales person to come to his office to collect the booking amount. Then I thought, all the waiting is going to end and finally we had made a decision.
The next day, the sales person did not come to my dadís office as promised. This was the time when I happened to hear a news that the Jazz prices has been slashed. So we just thought why donít we give it try.We have never seen this car before and we searched the internet to get a detailed view of this car. All the reviews were positive for this BIG small car. We really wanted to see this car in real. So contacted the showroom people and told them we wanted to have TD. They brought the car to our place . The sales person started showing the interiors. And then he opened the boot. We were amazed seeing such a big spacious boot which we have never ever seen in a hatchback. Then he started folding the seats. Then we got in to check the legroom and head room. We were very much impressed. So next we decided to do the TD. The engine was super smooth and super silent. Everything was just fine and we loved the car. After the test drive, we handed him over the booking amount and he promised that the car will be delivered within 45 days time. So we booked the car and as promised we got it in less than 45 days.
