YESTERDAY I WAS GOING TO A FRIENDS HOUSE IN BETWEEN COMES MARUTI SHOWROOM AND I WAS WATCHING A FAMILY WHO WAS BUYING A CAR AND HOW THEY GOT A SNAP WITH A CAR AND THE PANDIT WHO WAS PERFORMING RITUALS SO I REMEMBERS THE DAY WHEN I GOT MY CAR SO I AM HERE TO WRITE MY EXPERIENCE
FIRST OF ALL I M JUST 17 YRS OLD AND I GOT A BIKE WHEN I WAS 14 I NEVER WAS A GUY WHO WANTED TO GET A CAR I LOVED MY BIKE AND WANTED TO BUY A HAYABUSA OR R1 WHEN I GROW UP BUT AFTER TURNING 16 SOME INTRESTS GREW IN CARS ALSO AND ONE OF MY FRIEND OWNED A BLACK TATA SAFARI WHICH WAS THE FIRST CAR I FELL IN LOVE WITH I DECIDED THAT IT WAS THE CAR WHICH I WOULD BUY . ITS ROAD PRESENCE AND RESPECT WAS SOMETHING UNBEATABLE THOUGH MANY GLITCHES IN IT BUT STILL I WANTED TO GET IT .
IN MARCH WE DECIDED TO GET A CAR SO I AND MY BROTHER AGREED TO GET A SAFARI BUT MY [cry] DUMB LUCK WE DIDNT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY AND ALSO MY FATHER WANTED TO GET A HATCH SO I HAD TO KILL MY DREAMS AND SEARCH BEGAN WE SAW FIRST
I20 WHICH IS NICE CAR BUT ITS PRICE TAG WAS JUST 50K LESS THAT SAFARI THE DIESEL TOP END
SWIFT I DIDNT LIKE THE SWIFT NEITHER DID MY BRITHER
GRANDE PUNTO
HMM WE WENT TO TATA SHOWOOM THEY SAID THE GUY WHO DEALS IN FIAT IS OUT OF TOWN WHAT THE HECK ?? THEY JUST HANDED US A BROCHERE AND NO GOOD TREATMENT FROM THEM FEW DAYS AFTER ME AND MY BROTHER WENT TO THE TATA SHOWROOM AGAIN BUT AGAIN THEY SAID THE SAME STORY I WAS VERY ANGRY AND TOLD THEM TO SHOW ME THE CAR AGAIN THEY STARTED SAYING IT IS IN THE YARD BLAH BLAH BUT ALL I WANTED WAS TO SEE IT BECAUSE THERE WERE VERY LESS PUNTOS IN OUR TOWN THAT TIME AND I ONLY HAD SEEN PUNTO IN TV AND WEB SO I ASKED THEM TO TAKE ME TO THE YARD
AND THERE WAS IT A WHITE 1.3 EMO PK PUNTO ALL IN DUST [confused] I THOUGHT THE YARD TO BE SOMETHING ELSE IT WAS MORE LIKE A JUNKYARD STILL I SAW THE CAR SAT IN IT I ALREADY KNEW THE FEATURES EXCEPT TH ONE IN WHICH I HAD TO SWITCH OFF THE CAR IF IT STOPS IN A GEAR I ASKED THEM TO GIVE ME( I MEAN MY BROTHER AS I DIDNT KNEW HOW TO DRIVE PROPERLY ) THEY SAID THE GUY WILL COME TO OUR HOUSE AND AFTER FEW DAYS ONE FINE AFTERNOON HE CAME WITH THE SAME CAR WHICH WAS IN THE YARD AND ME AND MY BROTHER BOTH TOOK THE CAR FOR THE TEST DRIVE THE CAR FELT SOLID TO DRIVE NICE INTERIOR AND GOOD FRONT LEG ROOM I DINT CARE ABOUT THE REAR LEG ROOM AS THE CAR HAD TO BE MOSTY DRIVEN BY ME OR MY BROTHER SO ALL I WANTED WAS A DRIVER ORIENTED CAR BUT I HATED THE LOW RESPONSE ON LOW RPS AND THE ENGINE WAS A BIT NOISY TOO AND AS I HAD TO DRIVE IT IN THE CITY I KNEW THIS WS SOMETHING I SHOULD GET USED TO
THEN WE BOOKED THE CAR IN BOSSA NOVA WHITE WE BOUGHT THE CAR ON 28 APRIL ME MY BROTHER AND MY MOM WENT TO THE SHOWROOM AND THERE WAS IT STANDING I DIDNT WANTED ANY PICTURES WITH THE CAR OR ANYTHING I JUST WANTED THE KEY AND DO DRIVE IT BUT IT TOOK 2 HOURS TO FINISH EVERY THING
I LEARNED TO DRIVE CAR PROPERLY AFTER BUYING ONE
WELL SPETEMBER NOW AND THE CAR HAS RUN GOOD 5000KM WITH NOT MUCH PROBLEMS EXCEPT THE GLOVE BOX DOES NOT CLOSES PROPERLY I HAVE TO GET IT REPAIRED EVERY MONTH AND [confused] WHY DO THE RUBBERS ON DOORS KEEP ON FALLING ??
I HAVE GONE THROUGH A MAJOR ACCIDENT WHEN A TRUCK JUST RAMED MY CAR FROM BEHIND AND HAD JUST BENT THE BUMPER THE BOOT INSIDE
SURE FIAT MAKES ITS CARS SOLID AS TANKS
I LIKE EVERYTHING EXCEPT HUGE TURNING RADIUS FEELS I M NOT DRIVING A HATCH AND THE STOCK CRAP SPEAKERS
I GOT SOME MODIFICATIONS DONE LIKE BLACK ROOF SMOKED HEADLIGHTS LEDS INSIDE NOTHING MUCH ELSE
