Hey vaibhav,

On second thoughts why don't go you for the Swift ZDI (hatchback) I mean, I think the boot is just 100 liters more in the Dezire (correct me pls, if i am wrong). Try not to compromise on safety (Airbags and ABS ), I have test driven VDI and ZDI and was really disappointed with the brakes in VDI, it just didnt cut it. Unfortunately, we have to pay heavily for something that should always be a standard ( ABS and Airbags), its a general tendency to think that we wont be harmed or we are the better driver. But you never know when the other person has a bad day and wants to kiss your car head-on!![;)]

Give a thought!! [:)]

If parents are explained about the usefulness /lifesaving importance of the abs, airbags , I am sure they won't mind sacrificing socalled (100 lit) big boot.

Air bags can be sacrificed only on the ground of budget and space inside , as is the case with myself.

Please , ask how and what do they handle @4500.
What is basic MGA kit.
5 months is more than enough time for window shopping for accessories.

The handling charges shouldn't be charged in Delhi.You can complain in the consumer forum if you feel harassed. Did they tell you openly or indirectly?

Please ask the dealer about, basic MGA kit, I am sure it's not the screw driver, stephen y kit, as it comes free with the car by default.

Dealer can't sabotage the car as msil is very strict and serious about booking/ delivery feedback given by the custemer. At the time of my Wagonr delivery, I had informed the msil on its routine feedback form that I suspect sabotage regarding 5 litre s free petrol fill up.
MSIL compelled the dealer to fire two employees , purely on the basis of circumstantial evidence. So don't worry. Just ask for break up of MGA kit & handling charges.
You can avail the warranty benefits (msil provided)at any of the numerous MASS all over India. So attempt to harass /sabotage means loss of future bussiness (accessories, servicing) for a dealer. No dealer can afford to feed his employees without bussiness up to the satisfaction of the custemer.

@ vaibhao ,In the era of consumer protection law, custemer is definitely a king, atleast before paying full amount.

Auto companies/dealer do not and can not have beurocracy like attitude. They are always worried about the competition. No harm in asking your queries to the dealer,after all it's your hard earned , 9 hr a day tds cut income., even if you have paid the booking amount.

The RTO will not have any competition for issuing a licence, hence the attitude.

By 'mango people' do you mean to say ' Aam Log' ?
